It is always a huge thrill for me to discover hidden aspects of an old house. It is one of the things I enjoy about old houses.
My mind races with thoughts of previous owners, previous lives in the spaces I now occupy.
My mind races with curiosity, too. WHAT did these rooms look like when freshly papered? I develop an almost painful yearning to travel back in time. There must be a way! There must be a way!
Would ruby red slippers do the trick?
