Rescue Me Please Update :: Success!

 Do you remember this glorious Art Deco house
which we looked at as part of the Rescue Me Please series?
Well, in fabulous news,
the new owners contacted me last week
to let me know that they purchased it on a whim
with the intention of saving & restoring it.
Yippee!

Oh, I do love a happy ending!

    1. Yes, and thank goodness for that too!

      And oh boy, if one were to count the time, labour and expense....but it is all more than worth it because it is now too expensive to replicate the building quality of these houses for most people's budgets. x

  5. Great news Virginia. I'm especially happy for Art Deco house. Are you involved in renovation? Would be perfect since you already have a plan. It would be the best choice for the new owners.
    Loved your Rescue series.

    1. Hi Natalie! Yes, me too, that was the one I was most expecting to be demolished. No, I don't have anything to do with the renovation - the new owner just contacted me anonymously so I can't even check on progress to report back on Glamour Drops. But hopefully they will contact me again because I think everybody would love to follow the progress.

      Delighted that you have been enjoying the Rescue series. Plenty more to come! x

  6. Whoohooo! Doing my happy tap dance here!! That Art Deco house just spoke to me--do you remember how freaked out I was, afraid that it was going to be demolished? I really hope that the couple that saved it regularly reads your great blog and sees how happy we all are by their good deed! :)
