I THINK A HOUSE MUST TELL A STORY...........


Look at me~~look at me
Please come in and stay
Every house has a story to tell


Whispers from the floorboards
Shadows from the light
Every house has a story to tell


Rooms in their kaleidoscope of colors
Beds holding secrets of their own
Every house has a story to tell





Doors open more than closed
Windows left bare to catch the light
Every house has a story to tell


Too much clutter stored away...but not forgotten
Tidy surroundings saying all is secure here
Every house has a story to tell


Personal bits of inspiration
hung haphazardly here and there
Every house has a story to tell


What story does your house tell?

  1. The story of my home is still being written. It will be one of love, peacefulness, and serenity when it was finished.

  2. My house's story would be interesting. The first owners, years ago, were part of a crime syndicate. I have been here for 43 years, and a lot has happened in that time.

  3. My house tells the story of a life that is filled with grandkids and kids and cooking and laundry and love! xo Diana

  4. Hi Jo... my house tells a story of love of family, Nature and all of God's creatures... it says "welcome" to all, pets included!... it speaks to me gently of days gone by as it is filled with possessions and memories of loved ones who have passed on, yet are always near... xoxo Julie Marie

  5. I think my house is on chapter one with many more chapters to come. Since we built it a few years ago and it's our dream home, I hope it will tell future owners that it was built with love.

  6. I think the stories to be told from some houses would be amazing.
    Especially the Older houses, where lots of living has gone on. Generations perhaps.
    I have only been in my home 2 1/2 years now. It is a "newborn" of sorts.
    We will see how it's story unfolds.

    what about yours??

  7. I love this post! I believe that houses tell stories. Prior the home we have now, we lived in a house that was 110 years old. I loved it! I used to tell people that I was a lot like that house - I needed some fixing up but had a lot of potential! We are like houses - when someone takes the time to restore us, we can bring so much joy to their soul! Your post spoke to me on many levels. What fun!

  8. Our house is a very very fine house. Not two cats in the yard...but two dogs...rocking chairs on the porch windows open to sunshine and flowers all around!
    Hugs~

  9. what a great thought provoking post Jo! There are so many stories our house holds...the main theme would be the love of family, the struggles and hard times, of course, but the perserverience, and fortitude to keep trying, has brought many happy years in our house! Home really is where the heart is. XOX Christel

  10. What a perfect story. I am in the rpocess of house-hunting...I think I will look not only at the structure and features, but try to listen to its soul, as I search each one for a place to call "home"~

    Just found your blog. I'm following you~

    Hugs!

  11. This was a most wonderful post sweetie. It's true, houses do tell a story.

    Mine would tell of a story of love, a family raised, grandchildren spoiled and friends loved.

    God bless ya and have an amazin' day sweetie!!! :o)

  12. Hello from Frog Hollow Farm! Oh yes, I do believe that houses tell a story. Sometimes, and I know this will sound weird, but if I am driving in a new area and see an older home that I haven't seen before, many times I feel drawn to it - the way the lights glow in the windows - something - makes me take a second and third look, wishing I could take a peek, before continuing on my journey. xxoo

  14. Beautiful post Jo! I love looking at old homes and wonder what memories they hold. Oh if they could talk.
    You have such a beautiful blog!
    hugs...

  15. Hi Jo, I wouldn't want my house to be telling any stories right now, it is a bit of a Mess! I had a busy week & it wasn't spent tidying up around here~ Funny you thought I lived in the south, I sure wish I did... Dearborn Michigan is where I live, but have family in Georgia, I sure wish I could go south for the winters like my folks use too, now I understand why they went to Florida from Jan-May.... It has been mild with not much snow this winter, but the gloomy gray days have taken the toll~ Here's to Spring!
    Take care
