A Beautiful Saratoga in Mukwonago, Wisconsin

My great aunt Addie has a lot of friends in Wisconsin. Even though Addie has been dead 111 years, she’s still a popular girl and Addie has more than 450 friends on Facebook.

At this website, my blogs on Addie have been viewed by more than 40,000 people.

And thanks to Addie, I’ve become friends with a woman named Heather who lives in Wisconsin. Heather reminds me of my own daughters. Heather is incredibly intelligent, well-read, sagacious, and best of all, she has a compassionate heart. Smart people are a blast, but when you find someone who’s smart and kind and wise, that’s a wonderful thing.

Heather possesses all those qualities. And she loves Sears Homes, too!

Recently, Heather found and photographed a beautiful old Sears House in Mukwonago, Wisconsin. It’s quite a house, and it’s in largely original condition.

    Thanks Rosemary! I talked with the owner that day, she was a very nice woman who is the third generation to own the house. Her grandfather built it in 1918, and the inside is stunning. Besides needing paint and a new roof, this house is in beautiful shape, and she is very proud of her Arts and Crafts style kit home.
