Because who ever gets sick of eastlake hardware? 🤷🏼‍♀️ #oldhousenerd
Good people of Instagram...I need your opinions. So, for the last 10 years we have had the same 32" TV, which still works beautifully. It served us well in our little rancher, but it was dwarfed in this big living room, so it was time for an upgrade. Queue in this monstrosity...I love our new TV, I adore it...but it is the most un-victorian thing I have ever seen. Now let's be realistic here...Yes, we want this house to be as period accurate as possible, but the reality is...we still have to live here and, like it or not, the TV has to stay. There's no other wall to put it in so now the question is...how to blend it in? The credenza you see there is just temporary, it needs to be refinished and moved to another room, so that will be gone, and we will be buying a more period appropriate piece of furniture for the TV components...but around the TV, what should I put there? Something above the TV? Something on the sides? What do you think? At least we were able to hide the cables! 😁 . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldFurniture #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldhardware #vintagehardware #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram

You guys...you guys...you guuuuys!!! Take a look at this! Ok...quick back story...I signed for an account with Newspapers.com and started doing some research, and I came across this article...Published February 14th, 1908 in the York Daily newspaper, the title reads: "Dallastown Man Entertains Friends"...Look..at..this...article!!! You all remember Chauncey, right? He was about to marry his father's housekeeper but died two weeks before the wedding? The more I find out about Chauncey, the more I discover his character. He clearly was a socialite, a man who liked to entertain, and I have learned that he had a few flings before Idabelle, all women of high social status, which makes me wonder why he chose a housekeeper to settle down? Nothing wrong with that, but he could have had any woman he wanted...why choose her? What was it about Idabelle that tamed Chauncey? But anyway...isn't this the absolutely most victorian thing you ever read? (I know it's past victorian time, but if you have ever watched a period drama you will know exactly what I mean) . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldDoors #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #oldnews #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldnewspapers #oldhistory #socialite #posh #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram

I know this is not house related but...Who needs twinkling lights when you have freezing rain? The trees in the house are looking lovely. I'm sure they do not appreciate being covered in ice, but they surely do look pretty...It makes me wonder, how did they predict storms like this back in the days when they didn't have radars and satellites to rely on? . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #winterishere #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #itssnowing #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #freezing #rain #snow #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram

It’s a top floor week. It began here, enjoying the view and finishing a natural stone veneer (see allll that scaffolding?!), but with the sleet, now we’re in the attic of the fixer upper prepping for a new roof...where it’s stinky, crooked, wetter than it should be, and nothing looks this good.🤣 so it goes. #renovation #restoration #oldhousecharm

I have been asked often how we could move from our farmhouse after doing so much work on it. To me, it's simple: God has called us to something different. And when He speaks, it's okay to leave. I shared an update, some real life photos, but mostly my heart over on the blog today. I hope it encourages you in whatever season you find yourself in. ❤️ littlebylittlefarmhouse.com or follow the link in my profile . . #farmhouselife #farmhouseinfall #farmhouseswing #farmhousefrontyard #littlebylittlefarmhouse #fallatthefarmhouse #simpleliving #treeswing #myfarmhouse #countryliving #countrylivingmag #americanfarmhouse #mycountryhome #theeverygirlathome #oldhouselife #1800sfarmhouse #nyfarmhouse #autumnlife
Here is another old timey picture for you! This is J. W. Minnich. He is the one for which the house is named after. I did a lotnof research on this house and, apparently, there was another property here, but when he bought it he did extensive renovations to make the house what it is today. He was a business man (and a very good one apparently as he was one of the richest man in town), and he owned a cigar factory. Apparently, cigar manufacturing was all the rage in Dallastown at the time. He was born 1860, and died in 1940 (or was it 1941?). And according to a newspaper clipping that I found, he once lost his umbrella and it was a very big deal because the whole ordeal was published in the newspaper. Anyway...can I just draw your attention to the cane?? You guys, he has a cane, just for show, like what you see in movies!!! Isn't he dapper? . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldPictures #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #oldphotographs #dapper #handsome #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram

The in between. It isn’t always pretty. And that’s where we are right now. Currently, this view has a queen box spring that won’t fit up the stairs. We knew that. And it’s on our to do list. But, the kids have settled into their rooms and that is what matters most. I have dreams and hopes for our home, but it’s going to take time. Little by little, right? Until then, I’m going to enjoy the day it was empty and the sun was shining. But...stay tuned for a behind the scenes blog post tomorrow because: I can’t help but be anything but real. ❤️ . . #1900shouse #dutchcolonial #oldhousecharm #oldhouselife #oldhousestyle #littlebylittle #littlebylittlelivingroom #southernwindow #myoldhouse #thisoldhouse

Introducing.. Her Gorgeousness, Lady Blue. This is currently hanging in the room that will eventually become my son's room...I am preeeety sure it will be moved from there, as I don't trust a 5 yr old with making sure nothing happens to it...He is not exactly...careful...and I totally see a ball hitting it or something. So yes, she will be moved to a new location somewhere else in the house. We'll see...Also, can you catch a sneak peek at the hand painted wallpaper border in the background? . . #VintageHomes #OldHouse #OldHouseLove #Antiques #OldLamps #victorians #victorianhomes #victorianhouses #dreamhouse #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #prettyoldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhousecharm #archi_ologie #victorianarchitecture #archilovers #remodel #fortheloveofoldhouses #historicpreservation #theamericanhome #pahomes #chandelier #wallpaper #vintagewallpaper #vintagehardware #italianate #secondempire #interiordesign #housesofinstagram
