Last month, my co-worker and friend took me to her old family home on the outskirts of Jacksonville, Illinois. The home has been left to elements for too long and is no longer inhabitable, but she will use fixtures and furniture from it in the new house she is going to build on the property.
Some of the detailing on the fixtures was beautiful. There were fixtures with roses, corn, grapevines and each one with intricate decorative details.
One of the most beautiful aspects of the house was one my friend has her heart set on being able to incorporate into the new house, and I definitely have my fingers crossed for her! This staircase would be a great addition to her new home.
There were plenty of oddities that caught my eye as well, including a doll with a mustache drawn on and an old telephone in one of the old farm buildings on the property.
