Crown Heights, OKC
Hope you are not sick of seeing tudor revival storybook cottage houses.
Too bad if you are because I never get tired of seeing the variations in these homes.
Today's Open House is very late getting up because last night, I had a
I'd noticed over the past week or so that my office chair was really squeaky and felt
a little weird. Well last night as I started to do this post, I turned in my squeaky
chair to look at the tv and the whole top of the chair collapsed to one side
sending me sprawling to the floor.
Franklin was very surprised as he was in my lap at the time.
He wanted to do it again.
I was not hurt but realized how stupid I was not to realize something was up with the chair.
It is unfixable. I'll need a new chair.
I just couldn't deal with it last night and went to bed.
I'm sitting on a stool now as I type this.
Now, back to the house.
This is a very cute home and only one of a few that have that round porch opening.
It is really odd, isn't it? Super glad mine doesn't have that...but then I probably would not
have bought it if it had. But the house has lots of other things going for it.
I do love the big window but it looks to me that the original window was taken out and
a solid piece of glass put in. That is a shame but I've seen this done quite a bit by past home owners that
didn't keep the historic integrity.
I do not believe that is the original mantel either. It could be but these homes usually have tile fireplaces.
This room is pretty much the same dimension as my own living room but I have a doorway
to the office den in the middle of the left wall which prohibits me putting any furniture on that wall.
In this view it looks to be the same layout as mine.
Interesting that the dining room table is pushed to one side instead of in the middle of the room.
Makes sense traffic wise but I still like a centered table.
I really need to get some drapes up in my living room and dining room. It makes the windows look so
Quite a bit to love here in the kitchen.
These are not the original cabinets, of course but they are pretty.
I love the faucet. One of these days...I'll get a new one.
Love the stove in all it's stainless glory.
Oh...I'd love one of those instead of my ugly black one.
And the black and white checked floor looks so much better here than in mine because it's set in a
diamond pattern. Mine is set checkerboard fashion.
A few open shelves would really benefit this kitchen.
If I bought this house...I'd take a few doors off immediately, wouldn't you?
A large family room has been built on to the back of this house.
The kitchen window has become a pass through.
A huge mid century room on the back of the house.
What a great weenie playroom this would be!
That fireplace just screams 50's or 60's. I hated that style when I was a kid.
But I kind of like it now probably only because its retro.
Deer head would of course have to go.
cute small vintage bath
Another that is more modern and plain.
And another...unusual for a house like this to have three.
master, I presume
I'll be back later tonight with Mod Mix Monday.
Update on Franklin....
He and Harvey have become friends. They play a lot together.
Harvey seems happier, now.
And Sally is happier too...because Franklin really loves her.
I don't think anyone but me has ever loved her before and she kind of likes all the attention
he pours on her.
It's good to be loved.
