Windows into History

I'm not sure why some things intrigue me........like these old windows and the whole side of this old brick building. I guess it's the history.....wondering who built this house and who lived here when it was new? I often go digging into history to find the answers and find out so many interesting things! It is a constant fascination for me. Every old house in Charleston has it's own story to tell....and I love finding the stories!

Love this peeling paint!

I have seen and enjoyed hundreds of Victorian homes, but had never saw any windows like this tiered section in this Victorian beauty, until the other day! I am thinking there is maybe a stairway and landing on the other side?
Another beautiful, TALL and interesting window:

Pretty and colorful stained glass squares on these old house windows:

"Pretty in Pink" window!

Charmingly chipped...

I couldn't believe how far these windows were bent in! Have you ever seen anything like it?

There was a lively group of ladies walking by and making photos, enjoying the sights. They were giggling over the window and one said "I don't think even THE PROPERTY BROTHERS could do anything with this!!"  LOL
I'm pretty sure this is the same building a few months later----being worked on.
Maybe the Property Brothers showed up? LOL


  1. You have captured some lovely and interesting windows.

  2. It takes a lot of work to keep these old buildings in good order but I hope they continue to improve them and keep them. Love those wine bottles in the window. Enjoy your weekend! Hugs, Diane

  3. I love old houses too! Such history. I wonder too who has lived in this house. The stained glass windows are gorgeous!
    Have a good weekend!

  4. That pretty in pink window is gorgeous ♥


  5. I am drawn to doors, windows and reflections, too. And when they are filled with history, all the better. Especially love the wavy old glass!

  6. Wonderful windows. You always fine the most lovely things to show us! Thank you so much for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  7. Hello stranger! I know I haven't been around in a while, but I wanted to thank you for checking in on me after we lost our sweet doggie last October. I kind of lost the passion for blogging, too, and just haven't been around, I'm afraid. This post on windows really spoke to me. I absolutely LOVE windows, and I loved your mention of the Property Brothers! Just yesterday my husband and I binge-watched them all afternoon! Actually, I think it was Saturday. Yesterday was Lakefront Living! LOL In any case, I really enjoyed this post, and I hope all is well with you!!!
