So you want to live the vintage life in a vintage home? You see that stuff on the bedroom windows? That's ice and its on the INSIDE. This morning it was a balmy 27 degrees inside the bedroom. There's no heat upstairs in my old house, so this is somewhat of a normal occurrence during the winter months. While it's a little cool (well, ok, downright COLD) most of the time, it sure makes for good sleeping under a pile of old quilts my Maw made so many years ago.
