96-Year-Old Woman Puts Home Up For Sale And People Go Inside To Find It Untouched After 72 Years

In 2014, a 96-year-old Toronto resident was selling her two-story home located in the West Toronto neighborhood of Bloor West Village.

From the outside, the house didn’t look like anything out of the ordinary, and even her neighbors had no idea about the surprise she’d been keeping inside.

The home was intricately and gorgeously decorated in perfect style, drawing from the best of the 1950s and ’60s from floor to ceiling. We’re talking metallic wallpaper, modern baroque prints, colorful carpeting, and neo-ornate splendor, and much, much more.

The homeowner was a 96-year-old seamstress who had always been passionate interior design but unable to make it her profession. Despite her age, she and her family lovingly maintained the home’s classic beauty and eccentricities for 72 years.

The interior remained in absolutely pristine condition…

From the outside, this 96-year-old woman’s home in Toronto looks pretty ordinary.

Nothing special, right?

But just wait…

The elderly homeowner was once a seamstress and knitter by trade.

But at 96 years old, she’s finally got the recognition she deserves as an interior designer, though she never had formal training.

From floor to ceiling, this two-story detached home is decorated in perfect 1960s style.

Just look at that wallpaper!

The homeowner said, “I like soft colors, and I like things to match and flow well together. I prefer tone-on-tone to bright colors.”

It’s easy to see her favorite colors are soft pastels, like pink, purple, sea-foam, and aqua.

The kitchen boasts amazing light fixtures and custom cabinet hardware.

And who doesn’t love a breakfast nook?

These date all the way back to the days of The Brady Bunch and are perfect for your cozy morning coffee.

 

The master bedroom features bright, bold gemstone purple, lilac walls, purple carpeting, and a fuchsia settee.

 

Look at those built-ins, the copper gold mirror, and emerald velour.

Just beautiful!

The homeowner’s daughter remembers how her mother’s style wasn’t complete without the color pink.

Naturally, this was her favorite room in the house!

The family bathroom is also pink, but with matte gold accents to match.

This is the style maven’s sewing studio, where she showcases her love for purple and orange.

No retro home would be complete without a fabulous, spacious basement.

It keeps that vintage look, but also has a genuine playroom feel.

The basement bathroom features a sweet lilac sink, with a function-forward accordion shower stall door.

A fully-equipped basement laundry suite, too? This home has seriously got it all.

Outside, there’s a wonderful outdoor space, complete with Astroturf and swan planter.

There’s more than enough room for a whole family to enjoy the outdoors, with a sweet little garden shed painted in a soft mint shade.

No one on the street ever talked about the home, or knew what it looked like inside.

But now everyone is well aware of incredible design, and its 96-year-old decorator and keeper.

If you were blown away by this incredible home, please SHARE this story with your friends and family!

Real-Life Vampire Couple Says Sucking Blood Is Better Than Sex

They’re bloody perfect for each other.

Two self-proclaimed vampires in Austin, Texas, say they’ve found true love thanks to a passionate relationship built on sucking each other’s blood.

Countess Lea and Count Tim Van Doorn (who we suspect aren’t really royal) met two years ago at a vampire festival and felt what Tim described to Barcroft TV as an instant “connection of darkness.”

That quickly turned into a romance that alternately really bites and really sucks ― in a good way, according to Lea, a 20-year-old fetish model.

“We are kind of like sharks once we get going. I feel this rush of life, their essence, and their energy is coming into me,” she told Barcroft TV. “It is a sexual experience and we often draw blood in the bedroom. Vampires are highly sexualized creatures and having sex literally gets the blood pumping.”

Although the couple each has matching acrylic fangs strong enough to draw blood, they prefer to use razor blades or syringes.

Tim, a 31-year-old tarot card reader, says the experience is as satisfying as sex.

“When I feed via blood it is it just as good as sex because as I feel this rush of life, their essence, their energy is coming into myself and I am taking it in and I feel empowered,” he told Barcroft TV. “I feel the person I’m feeding from on a whole different level and in a totally different way than I could with words.”

Lea added, “I actually prefer drinking blood to having sex. You are taking the essence of a person and that to me is ecstasy. There is no better feeling.”

These partners-in-plasma plan to get married in November 2018, and are raising Tim’s 3-year-old son from a previous marriage.

They say they will both be happy if he follows in their path, but don’t want to force it on him.

“We feel that it is something that the vampire has to discover for themselves,” Tim told Barcroft TV.

As extreme as the practice may seem, consuming small quantities of blood are likely harmless according to Live Science, as long as the “donor” is free of blood-borne diseases.

A 2015 study by D.J. Williams, director of social work at Idaho State University, suggests the global vampire population numbers in the thousands.

Though the “Twilight” movies and the “True Blood” series have helped make vampires trendy, Williams told Reuters that the majority of self-proclaimed vampires “believe they were born that way; they don’t choose this.”

This Guy Can’t Stop Photoshopping Himself Into Kendall Jenner’s Instagram Pics

@KirbyJenner is a self-described “Amateur Model / Lover of all things / Fraternal Twin of Kendall Jenner”. He’s also really good at Photoshop, and has used that skill to insert himself into Kendall Jenner’s Instagram pics.

The cheeky ‘shops have garnered the digital artist a rabid following of his own, and his (verified) Instagram account now boasts nearly 500,000 followers. One reason why is that his Photoshops are above-average quality. He takes time to try to match the tones and lighting and it shows.

Nordstrom Now Selling $425 ‘Mud-Coated’ Jeans for People Who Want to Pretend they Have a ‘Dirty’ Job

Ever feel like your job in Hollywood or your large trust fund has left you out of touch with the working class in America? Well, now there’s a new way to reconnect with the hoi polloi: Buy a pair of $425 jeans that promise to show “you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.”

Luxury fashion retailer Nordstrom was previously best known for dropping Ivanka Trump’s brand back in February—unofficially out of political spite, officially because of declining sales.

The company is now desperate to ruin its own brand further by selling a pair of working class-inspired pants, so that people with $425 to spare can feel part of the masses. Per the item’s description on the website:

Heavily distressed medium-blue denim jeans in a comfortable straight-leg fit embody rugged, Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.

The jeans caused widespread mockery on social media, prompting “Dirty Jobs” host Mike Rowe to says the pants “look like they have been worn by someone with a dirty job… made for people who don’t,” Rowe wrote on his Facebook account.

He added: “The Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans aren’t pants. They’re not even fashion. They’re a costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic—not iconic.”

A number of people also left a review on the item’s page, one saying: “These are great! Now that I’m unemployed I can still look employed with minimal effort.”

“Are you intending to poke fun at working class folks?” another reviewer asked.
