Transformation . . .

Historical Home Tour
Baraboo, Wisconsin
Today . . . June 23rd . . .

This was our first home my late husband and I purchased in 1969 . . .
We sold our home and moved to Michigan, in 1975 . . .

This was me above, on purchase day in 1969 . . .
It was stunning when we we bought it and began restoring it . . .
But look at the transformation . . .


The present owners have provided me with these recent photos as we have
exchanged history notes the past few weeks.

And look at the house all decorated for the holidays . . .

My heart has been bursting with joy and pride that this old, old treasure
has received premo care through the years!

Exciting for me to show you . . .
love
lynne

It is such a beautiful treasure. The love and care you provided has continued. It could not be in better hands today than those of Paul Wolter and his bride. Heading out on the Historic tour of homes in a few minutes $

Doesn't it make you feel good to know that someone else loves it like you did? That Christmas one almost looks like a painting!
