Perkins' Pink Victorian House

Inside the Perkins' Pink Victorian House


I’ve had some near-accordion-purchases lately, but I have yet to acquire one. We had one in the house when I was a kid, but I would be pretty much starting from scratch to learn it (and Brandon’s not so super excited about that prospect). I almost settled for a concertina for sale at an estate sale, but a woman drove in from an hour away just to buy it and I wasn’t about to swoop it out from under her while she browsed (she was still “thinking about it” because they wouldn’t come down on price on the first day of the sale).

Anyways. Happy long weekend!

    Victorian house is something else altogether. Yikes yikes yikes. Decor is one thing ,,,,, BUT, who cleans? Who dusts?? This must be done continually. Can you imagine the expense!?!? Dunno. Not my cupatea though. Just think ,,,,, how does one unload all of those “thingies?” Jeesh. P. S. Having issues with what I own now. How shall I “get rid of” 500 cookbooks???

    I’ve been missing more frequent updates from you, but this reminded me of how much I like reading your writing! Thanks for sharing the article about scientists’ carry-ons, and I agree about Shirts! Enjoy your weekend!

    Hey! A house in Oak Park has listed and I thought you might like to see it. I found it on the Old House Dreams webpage.


    The woodwork is so similar to your house!! Different wallpaper choices though……….
