I love old buildings.  I love the architecture, I love the decorations, I love the tin ceilings.  I’d love to have antique tin ceilings in my own house someday, but I’m not holding my breath over it – they’re crazy expensive.

But I digress.  Late last summer, my mother-in-law and I took Miss Tadpole fabric shopping for her home ec. project.  We went to a local fabric place, and while they were looking around at the fabric, I was looking around at the building.  It had formerly been the town general store, and it was just beautiful.


I stumbled across this in the middle of an aisle.  I could have stayed there taking pictures of it all afternoon, as well as some of the other antique touches in the store.  This is something I’d love to have in my house someday, even though we don’t have forced air heating.

      Yeah, they do! My office still has a tin ceiling beneath the dropped ceiling, and it’s such a shame that it can’t be exposed because it’s really beautiful (even if it does need to be scraped and repainted). But I’m rather attached to the heat and air conditioning, and the fireplaces no longer function, so I guess I’ll just have to settle for catching a glimpse of it through the ceiling tiles. :/
