My son is moving back from Seattle to the Charleston, SC area.....but while he awaits to move into his apartment, he may spend time in a spooooooky old Charleston house.
It has these windows as pictured above, that change into doorways---they slide upwords.
It has old parkay (sp?) floors, with left over Christmas decorations. There are creaky scary sounds in the night....and things that have been seen that are weird.
Hopefully he will not have any further spooky stories to tell.
and....he will leave in one piece when his furniture arives in a week so he can more into a less scary abode.

It all started when I brought these outdoor gnomes inside to sit by the fireplace. I think they worked a spell on me. They gave me a desire to do a switch in my rooms. I moved the dining room into one of the living rooms and moved the living room into the dining room . HAVE YOU EVER DONE A ROOM SWITCH?
Above is what was once the dining area. I have made it a cozy den area.
This is a view of the other side (above).
Notice--on the shelf I spelled Spindle Cottage with the scrabble pieces (it was the gnomes' idea).
Above is now the dining room, but it used to be a living room . There is a fireplace on the right side, not showing in the picture. This is where the gnomes are sitting.
This room can double as a craft room and a computer/laptop area as well as additional seating for eating.
Here (above) is a view from another side--the sunny clock makes me laugh--it makes me think of the Jimmy Dean sausage advertisements.
You can tell which rooms are the same by the wall color. Unfortunately I should have taken them in the same direction!! The 2 before pictures are on the left and the afters are on the right.
So have you done this before????---it is fun. Let me know!

Today I worked on finishing up this very thick afghan. It is made by crocheting 2 strands of yarn at the same time. It is way bigger than it appears in this picture since it is partially folded and on the floor too. I had made one a while back and my hubby and I both loved its warmth, so I made a second one. Now we will both be warm and cozy when the cooler weather arrives.
So now I suppose I should start something for my next grandson who is supposed to be born in January......I will have to think about what kind to make for this new one!
His parents are vacationing in NC and they may be in the path of Hurricane EARL!! We will see what happens Thursday and Friday! They may have to evacuate.
PS> my daughter does have to evacuate!
