I never showed y'all the couch I found in a Northern IN Salvation Army for the KY house. It is beautiful (however, it is also dirty and I haven't had time to clean it up yet). It looks prefect in the house.
And, I suppose I kind of thrifted the KY house really since it had been abandoned by an investment company (I believe the house was being used as a boarding house) and I bought it for less than a used mid-economy car! (Really, this is kind of sad.) The fireplace was one of the original 1900 feature left untouched. All those weeks of driving by the house (while in contract) was to make sure it was still there.
