I’ve got plenty to drink – Pepsi AND Cherry Coke – I love them with crushed ice – coke slushies! When my grandkids and I aren’t exploding them with mentos, that is…
And how about an old-fashioned cotton candy?
Now sit back and let me introduce myself. I’m Kaye Swain, a geeky and tech-savvy REALTOR®, grandma, caregiver, and old house owner – past and present. I’ve owned a couple of 1940s homes (I like to call them Fab 40s because they really were fabulous homes and because I spent a good portion of my life living in Roseville, near Sacramento, California and always heard about the Fab 40s there and it stuck 🙂 ) – one stucco and one traditional brick, and an old historic Craftsman cottage / bungalow from the “Roaring 20s.” On top of that, one of my loved ones owned a gorgeous 100-year-old historic Victorian Farmhouse with huge rooms, original wooden floors and light fixtures, and the most awesome mature trees and backyard EVER. When they had to relocate and sell their sweet home, I started this blog, Old Historic Homes for Sale, to help advertise the home and sell it faster. Then I kept this blog to help my other real estate clients who are looking to buy or sell their old and sometimes historic homes.
Between the blog posts, the twitter posts in the right column, and the Facebook, G+, Houzz, Hometalk, and Pinterest boards I have dedicated to these great old homes full of old and new family memories, you’ll find plenty of interest including rustic, traditional, shabby chic and other intriguing types of home decor, gardening ideas, home remodeling and decorating information and tips for buying or selling old houses.
In addition to writing here at Old Historic Homes, you can find me at SandwichINK and SandwichINK Real Estate Info for boomers and seniors caring for elderly parents while raising children or helping with grandkids. I’m also at KayeSwain.com. All of these, plus all my social media sites, plus working with my real estate clients, as well as helping my family definitely keep me on the run – something I thrive on.
Now, before you leave, it’s time for some party entertainment:
First, a cute pix of one of my sweet granddogs – and isn’t that a fun poster. I made it with a new photo app – Poster Pro – I just downloaded – it’s free at the moment, tho maybe not for long – AND it’s a fun word search game for the grandkids too – tell them to find the word(s) this grandma mistyped 🙂Here’s a video of some photos I’ve taken while previewing some of the lovely old homes for sale while working as a REALTOR…
AND party gifts:
First party gift – a link to a FREE iPhone app called AppsGoneFree – every day it tells me about 4-7 FREE for THAT DAY apps. It’s a grand resource and it’s how I found the Poster Pro above along with a couple of hundred excellent tools and resources for helping me with real estate AND fun games for my grandkids AND great photo apps AND more. CLICK HERE to download it then ENJOY! (It doesn’t appear that Android has the same app but I did find Droid of the Day – with one free app per day and good reviews. 🙂 )
