A to Z Challenge – H

H – House

I absolutely love this old house! This is not my house! This house was built in the 1800’s. There are at least ten  homes from the 1800’s in our town. This one is by far my favorite. There used to be a porch swing on  the wrap around porch but the current owners removed it. This house has character and history which I would much prefer over a cracker box lookalike home.

If there was something worth a touristy stop in our little town, this would make a perfect bed and breakfast, or a tea house. Some day when I am rolling in the dough and can buy this house I may make it into a Victorian Tea Room that serves Mint Juleps and Hard Lemonade along with delicious strawberry shortcake and lots of pie!

I’ve always wanted to buy an old home and do renovations on it. This one has been kept in pristine condition so there wouldn’t be much work to be done.

Some day!

Write on my friends, write on! Dream on as well!

  1. Way too big, Ellie. Just think of all the dusting you would have to do! Ick! However…
    There is a dark, brooding woman whose dreams are haunted by this house. Two hundred years ago, her great-great-great grandmother built this house from a fortune made when she was a pirate on the High Seas. In the past generation, the woman’s father lost the house gambling. Now, the house calls to her, demands that she take ownership. Her dreams are filled with a sad, longing voice calling to her and she wakes with tears running down her cheeks. She must have this house, and she’ll go to any lengths to get it. Little does she realize…..


    • Did I send you my first draft of Arturo’s Treasure? Because you just about nailed the story with that description, with a few modifications. Buried treasures, haunted dreams, a haunted house, and a legacy that lasts through the generations. Now I want to get that one out, dust it off and work on that one!
