We talked about updating a house, and a friend arranged for us to see one on the market. We were amazed that we would purchase a home built in 1909 from the original owners and builders. We entered a sealed bid, and raised our bid in case we were bidding against anyone. Linda loved the house, and we just knew we had to have it.
Our friend who had told us about the house wanted us to pay her by giving her the dining room chandelier. We decided not to. We were sure the original owner had put it together with leaded glass and copper—and that it was a treasure. Now, more than ever, I’m glad we kept it.
Linda passed away recently but she will always live on in this house. Our attic is full of art she produced—prints, lithographs
