The Many Faces at My Old Historic House.

  Yesterday as I walked through, My Old Historic House, I just happened to notice ,that just about every where I looked there was a face;on the statues,china,wallpaper and  the portraits. They all seemed to look at me and smile and say, hello there. OK, I don't drink , nor do drugs, I am just what they call,"colorful". Yes, I think the faces that I see all over my house, are smiling at me. Is that a bad thought??? The more I looked, the more faces  there seemed to be. I got the camera and started taking there pictures. I never even made it past the first bed room up stairs, the camera kept telling me, out of card space. Off to the computer I would go and down load them and go back for more. After 3 times doing this, I said, "enough"! I just could not wait to share all those faces with you all today. So here they are.
   I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Do you think they are smiling? Do they make you smile? I know they do me. I wish you all could come by for a tour sometime soon and see all the faces for real. I will leave the lights on and Sissy Dog will meet you with a jump and a kiss and a big smile on her FACE.

Dear Richard... yes, why be normal indeed!? *winks* Your comment to my Post made me laugh out loud... it really is subjective isn't it. *LOL*

Loving all the faces around your Home, I often wonder if the images I have on my collections were inspired by a real person or one on the canvas of someone's Artistic imaginings?

Hi Mr. Cottrell,I just spent several hours on your blog until I got to the end. I was sad because I was done. I loved seeing all your fabulous antiques! What a treat and your pup sissy is adorable, always at your side. I will continue to visit as I have a passion for antiques and would love to find some true antiques. Not much around in this neck of the woods. I laughed when you said you did not like your picture taken, and would rather look like Brad Pitt LOL I think your quite handsome sir. Don't worry I'm not flirting I'm a happily married gal of 54 years of age. We have been together for 24 years! You seem to have a magical life living in your gorgeous home. Thanks for sharing all you have on your blog. It was a blessing for me to see it all. Enjoy life and have fun. Hugs,Pearl

Richard, this is a fabulous post. I love all the faces. There is one for every emotion imaginable.

My mother has a doll collection and a collection of antique figurines. Our guests often say they feel as if they are being watched.

What wonderful faces. I think I like the painting of the boy and the one of the woman with the long earrings, dark hair and with the bit of red dress showing. I think they're smiling!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Oh wow, what a collection of faces! Fantastic. LOVE crazy sideburns guy, and there's one of a young woman looking upwards in profile -- exquisite!

And I know exactly what you mean about "after 5 years" being just tired of all the renovating work! I hear you. Thanks for checking in with our painting progress; each day I get more nervous!

Hello Richard

The faces in your home: what an interesting project to collect them into a collage. I might borrow your idea if I may.

Richard I LOVE all the wonderful faces at your house! Some of the most beautiful I've ever seen! My sister says all the faces around my home are creepy but I love em all! I bet they think she's creepy! Lol! Do you find any of your portraits following you around? I love those! *winks* I just found myself a new/old pretty little girl portrait. Vanna
