A Teaser...



My new front door...
It comes with its own skeleton key.

Seriously....
could I have designed this any better if I tried ?

We did the walk through today, it all looks good!
Now, if the bank can just get their ducks lined up, we'll sign the papers Friday.

I took 75 pics today of the empty house,
and I promise to post most if not all of them before the end of the week.
Be sure to take the tour on my sidebar to tide you over until then.

You want another teaser?

You see these killer signs on our barns?






They're all staying!!!
Somebody pinch me, I thought for sure  
the owner would be taking these babies with him.

Squeeeee!!!!

Anne,

I love the signs on the barn! I collect antique signs. The Fairfield House came with a huge ring of skeleton keys -- one for each of the doors in the house! Yes, we use them all. It's the only way to lock the doors. So happy for you!

Your Friend,
Deborah

Anne, I wish you all the best. Having gone through the house buying 5 times (can't believe it's that many) I know how hard it is sitting on the fence waiting for the t's to be crossed. Your're so excited-I guess it's like waiting for Santa Clause! I'm sure it will all go smoothly and Friday will be here before you know it.
Best,

Honey your home is beautiful. I know you must be on cloud nine as I would be for sure.
Those signs are really great and their all yours now.
I am looking for a Mrs. Bairds Bread sign for my screen door in the kitchen. My dad retired from there and would love to put it on my door. Let me know if you find one.
Love

Jane said...

The house I grew up in had a front door with a skeleton key. My parents finally replaced the door...the door went home with my brother and I took the key!

Jaime Haney aka ArtsyFartsy.Me said...

OMG, it's like the universe has been hiding this house since who knows when and saved it just for you... I'm quite jealous. It looks fabulous. I would seriously be willing to hop on a plane if you ever have an "open house" to see it all dolled up with your magical touch! You are truly blessed... enjoy :)

Ok, I think I am ok to type this post now. So I am going to scream out loud in my office now "WHATTT????" Are you the luckiest girl on the planet??? That is unreal. First and gorgeous house, then I see it has property...and now a skeleton key with a super gorgeous glass door knob?? Too much, girl...just too much.

Thats it. I'm packin' my bags and movin' to Texas. Anything in the 'hood' for sale?? ;o)

I am a good neighbor that will mow your lawn while you are away and bring you treats when you are sick. Really. I am a good neighbor.

Anne,
Be careful showing those signs, you will have American Pickers, knocking on your door! Great, exciting time for you.

karlascottage.typepad.com said...

What a door!! Our old farmhouse came with a wonderful door, too, but for weather proofing to prevent cold Kansas, winter winds coming through, and for safety's sake, we had to put up a "real" door with good lock on it. I saved the old door and used it at the top of the stairway, though. I just love it, and am sorry it wasn't practical for the front of the house. I hope you get to keep yours there!!

hometown girl said...

you must be so excited! how wonderful to see it all empty and start from scratch!! have fun and don't work too hard! sending you hugs!! susan
