Secret Passages



My entire life I've been intrigued with secret passages in residential homes.

Are any of you old enough to remember the TV show Webster? I don't have any shots of it but he always had a secret passage way through his house that he accessed through a grandfather clock, atleast I think that's what it was.

You can actually follow the source of these and have them built into your home! Awesome if you  have that kind of cash!

  2. I loved Webster's secret passage! {You MAY be the first blog to ever reference this??} I also found passages so enchanting. Wish I could have one in my home, too!

    P.S. I'm back from my blogging break. ;)

    1. I'm glad your back from your blogging break! It really only seemed like a few years ago that I was a young kid watching Webster, so odd how time flies!
