before and now

We live in an old house, which was built by my husbands grandgrandfather in the year 1911.
I am so happy, that we have all the old photoalbums, that we can see how the time changed our sorroundings.
Wish you all wonderful weekend in your old and new houses :-)

  2. That's so cool that you know so much about the history of your house, especially having it built by a family member. Those old photos have such a dreamy quality about them. Yes, I want to know about the ghosts too :) When we first moved into our house we were wondering if we had one, but now I don't think so. Anyway, what a beautiful place to live!

  3. You live in such a beautiful house! I'm impressed. My parents live in a nice house built in 1917 and that would be my dream too. We also keep a lot of old pictures of the surroundings, very much like yours. Thanks for bringing this up. Today I'm visiting my parents and I'll check the family albums too! :)

  5. Wow, Andrea. You always have such awesome pictures. Pictures that makes my stomach react, weather it be beauty, melancoly, or like this, pictures that make my stomach taste history and the passing of time. I love photographs like these, taken at the same spot with years between.
    You are most fortunate to live in the same house as your ancestors lived in, few people do this day in age, I guess.
    Amazing. Just reminds me how much I enjoy your blog. Thank you.

  8. its nice, so nice to see the construction photos and that woman pausing in the window; where did she go, and now the chair of now waits another woman in the same room.

    a house like this, so large must have a ghost or two! ;)

    This is a great present of time; of showing how old buildings often remain long after our mortal dwelling drains down to the "invisibles" of what we leave behind.

    Have a wonderful week.

  11. Dear friends, unfortunately the only one ghost i have seen here ( in our flat) is me in the morning.
    I have to ask in the other families ( there are 3 flats in the house) if they have seen some :-)
