My friend Mary over at Little Red House found treasure today in her own home! Go see, you will love it. Can you imagine finding something in your own home that you didn't know was there that was beautiful? It reminded me of what I have always thought would be the perfect job for me. I grew up in a rural area of Michigan, lots of farm houses. Big old rambling things that have so much beauty and history behind them. I love farm houses. Some look like rambling Victorians, some are simpler but you still know they are crammed with attics and closets and basements and nooks and crannies. Quite often, driving through these old farming communities you will see one of these gems abandoned. Barns left to decay, houses no longer loved and cared for. What does this have to do with my dream job? Every time I pass one of these houses I have the overwhelming urge to go in and see what may have been left behind! Can you imagine how fun it would be to go through attics and rooms? I bet you would be amazed at things that were left behind. I bet you would find treasures galore! How many of you have been to farm auctions where beautiful furniture and other things were stored in the barn? I have! I guess I am a treasure hunter at heart. Unfortunately, combing through abandoned houses isn't a real job. How sad. What is your dream job?
