What a relaxing picture.

It looks like something that should be made into a painting.

Beautiful.

Old houses has a different feel to them. I remember my grandparents' house somewhere in Luzon. It brings back really fun memories.

Hi Hilda, this isn't where I live. But yes the living room is on the second floor. And thanks Hilda =)

kayni- Yes, that's true. I love old houses. They have character and history. (Although some would suggest horror stories too!) =)

HI Dina! I'm happy you chance upon my blog. :) Yes, isn't it fantastic how old houses stirs the old imagination in many ways? :)
