Ran across an empty old house in Chappell Hill, Texas.  I am not sure why it appealed to me, because it is rather plain. It would sure look a lot better with some flower baskets hanging from the porch, a rocking chair or two and some lace curtains. I figure it was built some where around the turn of the  twentieth century. I've always toyed with the idea  of restoring such a place, but those that have done it tell me that while it is a romantic idea,  in reality it always costs more than you think and involves a ton of work. I think that window on the bottom , facing us should be replaced with a set of French doors for more light, and shutters would certainly dress up those other windows. Better stop now before I find myself signing papers!
