Definitely Not Northbrook

A few weeks ago I asked if an estate sale could possibly be in Northbrook because it didn't have the look and feel of most Northbrook homes. This one doesn't either, and even though it was definitely in Northbrook, it's definitely not Northbrook.

To begin with, this was an older home. And it faced a highway, rather than being tucked away in a subdivision's winding lanes.

Those cookies look delicious. I hope the soldering iron is, too!

It was a bit dark and dingy.

I can't imagine why that intense turquoise paint didn't brighten things up more.

Or this pink.

All this attic bedroom needs to make it complete is a crazy relative. Or two.

Mom spent hours patching that carpeting together.
