This is my in-laws quaint 1923 Cottage in Mid Town Mobile Alabama. It is just as precious inside as it is outside. She has just painted the shutters red....they were black...I'm loving the red!
Here is one shot from her AWESOME backyard! This is the waterfall and pond. Note the bubbles in the pond....that would be from my youngest and very mischievous son who decided to squeeze a bottle of dishwashing soap into the fountain!
My husband surprised me while we were in Mobile and took me away for a night to a bed in breakfast in Magnolia Springs! Loving this front porch and wishing I was sitting on it right now! Since we were there on a Monday we had the house to ourselves. David, the owner gave me an amazing tour and history of every square inch of the house. My husband endured along with me...I loved every second of discovering this 110 year old house!
We stayed in the room that had the original bath of the house! Hello this toilet is over a 100 years old!!!! It is called a elephant trunk...see why! I will admit, I was quite intimidated by it at first. Would I break it? When I pulled the chain would it just come off in my hand?
Clog it? No way...this baby is how they should still be built! This picture does not do the "hole" justice...it is huge! I bet it has never been clogged...seriously! Why have we shrunk the "hole" down so much??? I have 3 "men" in my house...we are clogging constantly in NC. Do you think the toilet plungers companies have anything to do with this. They must be making a killing with these new models.
By the way, my husband thought I was so strange taking pictures of this. But, I knew I was going to have to share this with you all!
Have a blessed weekend!
