Cleaning chore day here at our house. My husband mowed the lawn while I cleaned the house. I deep cleaned the living room — sweeping, mopping, and straightening up. I redecorated the mantle with seashells from trips to the beach. Hard to believe summer is over.
I love the living room with the original wood floors that have lasted a century and a half. The floor to ceiling windows are nice too.
I first saw the living room when I first saw this 1880 house. It had a dead lady’s things in it, but Aunt Billy (I refer to her as Aunt Billy because that is how a neighbor introduced her and it stuck). I have her grey Royal typewriter that I bought from her nephew. Aunt Billy was a writer and a chain smoker. #typewriters #cleaning #oldhomes #historichomes #chores #seashells -#oceanmuse #nauticaltheme
