daily inspiration: i heart a great staircase in a home & ladders up to any built in bookcase.

A wonderful 1900's, 9bdrm brownstone completely untouched -in terms of being original doors, windows, hardware etc.. Just one big lovely house- has come on the market for a great price. It's 5floors! Front&back stair cases- dreamy, I felt the need to rescue this home -- I walked through yesterday with an ache in my heart and picture in my mind of family home with children laughing and running up and down the stairs playing. If things were in a different place I would buy it in a heart beat and brighten the original charm out of it! This home has only been with one Italian family, who've continuously passed it down until now... there's no one left who wants it. Keys are in the hands of a realtor. I fear & know all to well that someone is going to come in and divide this home into 3-4 separate apartments and modernize the (beep) out of it- all for a dollar. I wish there were more people out there that wanted to leave things as is and keep a homes character! ... Ugg, I guess to be continued -- as I'm keeping my eyes pealed on all happenings there ;)

Fall is in the air today <3
I had a chance to stop in at our neighborhood farmers market. We took home hot peppers, plums & raspberries!
