why i love it (now)

details- doorknob

the little details in our home-to-be are one of the reasons that i love it so much. it is a 1940's house... and while it's been updated considerably, many original details remain. a simple glass doorknob has so much charm and character. i love knowing that it was put in when the house was built; i love imagining what the interior looked like back when it was brand new. i love the radiators, the worn hardwood floors, the original glass-paned doors in the den. these things i love just from walking through the house a few times. i cannot wait to find out what other little details have an effect on me. what qualities i will begin to love about the house without even realizing it.
