A mini Meet up (visiting old finds with new friends)

Before the Pandemic, I would go out and about and hunt up Sears Houses. Then….. I would share my day with you all here in this little blog. Yeah……..in the before times……. Since I didn’t go out and about much during the pandemic, I kind of forgot ( OK ignored ) my blog! Occasionally I […]

6 New Houses in Butler County

Occasionally when I find a “new” Sears House in the Cincinnati area, and share the information with my little research group on Facebook, Andrew will jokingly comment “I think they are still building them down there”. Ha! I think he might be right! It seems like no matter how many times somebody goes through old […]

I never seem to have my “real” camera with me when I need it. I mean, you would think I would know better by now, since I live in Ohio, and kit houses are pretty much everywhere, that there is a chance I will spot one anytime I go anywhere nearby. Not that my “real” […]

I was feeling as blue as the sky today.  And with the weather forecast for next week saying Ohio might be getting our first dose of Winter snow, we decided to go for a ride while the sun was shining. I haven’t done a lot of Sears House hunting this year.  So many things to […]

A Quick Trip to Greendale, Indiana

A Quick Trip to Greendale, Indiana

This past week, I took myself on a little day trip to Dearborn County, Indiana. It wasn’t all that much fun, actually, since I went by myself, and I hate driving on the Interstate. It was my first trip out to do some mortgage record research since the start of this COVID thing. I called […]

Have I Told You About Winnie?

Have I Told You About Winnie?

OK, I will answer my own question. No, I’m sure I haven’t told you about Winnie. I meant to, last year, but I kept getting side tracked with leads on houses, day trips, meet ups with other researchers, and work……..sigh…….. Then I forgot all about it. Telling you, I mean. I haven’t forgotten about Winnie. […]

You Deserve a Donut

Hubby and I had a jam packed Summer planned.  Night after night of entertainment at the Springfield Arts Festival, several concerts at the Rose Music Center, Dayton Dragons games, Studebaker Car Club events, Food Truck Rallies, and as always, I was hoping for a few day trips out and about in Ohio hunting down Sears […]

The Sears Houses in Garden Acres (Springfield)

Hey there, my few and faithful followers.  What a year this is turning out to be, huh?  I know you all have a story to tell about how your lives have been affected by the events that have occurred in 2020.  I do, too, but one thing I didn’t expect to happen was that my […]

A Day Trip to Newark

A Day Trip to Newark

As I sit here checking on a couple comments left on this little blog, I realize that I haven’t written a post in almost three months!  You all probably think I haven’t found any new Sears Houses recently. Not so! I did take a little break from research over the Holidays,  but since then I […]

Hello there little blog of mine.  I know.  I’ve missed you, too. Seems like ever since the time changed and darkness has taken over my part of Ohio, I haven’t had the time or energy to go out and about and hunt for Sears Houses.  And now it’s the Holiday Season, which means even less […]
