At my old farmhouse there was awful scratched faded beat-up avocado green counter top in the kitchen. I decoupaged the counter with old recipe cards and photo copied pictures from 30's recipe books then topped it off with 6 coats of polyurethane. I loved it, several years later it was still in good shape. I'm planning on doing that again in my new old house.

I've made marshmallows for years, I prefer a recipe that uses egg whites in addition to gelatin.

I work at Rockcliffe Mansion in Hannibal MO, it is supposedly haunted by the spirits of a couple of staff members, the original builder, Mr Cruikshank and his wife. As one of the B&B hostesses I have stayed overnight many times, nothing scary but I have heard some unexplainable noises and seen lots of pictures with orbs that have been taken by guests. What is remarkable about the mansion is that it was abandoned but left fully furnished for 43 years, so nearly half of everything is original, including the Tiffany windows and chandeliers.
