Lil's Little House

We took a quick trip to see our youngest and her new house, or new-to-her house.  It was built in 1950 and is almost unchanged, which is a good thing to those who love that look.  I love the shower in her bathroom, peachy pink tile and all.  If anyone is into the 1950's look, can you tell us whether the glass shower doors were original to the house?  It would seem that they are, but there is also a shower rod above the sliding doors.  Why?  We don't know.

Isn't it cute?!!! She is in old home love.

 This is the narrow tile border.  It's black, the same peachy pink, and a light green.  Lil thinks pale green towels would look nice in here.

There was evidence that this (and other rooms) in the house had been painted a shade darker than the green in this tile, more like hospital green.  Ugh.  Sure am glad the sellers painted it before Lil bought it.

By the way, blogger made some changes while I was away, and while I'm sure they are good, I'm not wild about the new way to upload pictures. I apologize if they are too large.

The kitchen was practically untouched. Looks like they took out the broiler and added a panel to cover the opening. Look at the odd way the stovetop extends into the corner.

Until next time, may you have blessings and your own home love,


  1. Nope, Sorry. The doors are an add on. Not original. My first house was about this age and I love mid century housing. Not original though.

  2. OMG! I love, love, love her it! Congrats to Lil on a wonderful new home!
