vves:every damned time with you
Do you ever go from texting someone every day to realizing you’re always the one texting first, so you eventually stop texting first to see if they ever even notice you two haven’t talked and they don’t realize it so you’re just stuck silently missing them knowing it’s not even worth it anymore because they obviously don’t care
Winchester Mansion, also known as the Winchester Mystery House.
The mansion was under constant construction for 38 years – stopping only due to the death of Sarah Winchester – and it is widely reported as a haunted house.
Sarah Winchester lost her daughter in 1866 to marasmus, and then she lost her husband, William Wirt Winchester, in 1881. Fearing that a curse was on her family, she sought help from a psychic medium. The psychic told Sarah Winchester that a thousands of people have died because of her husband’s guns, and their spirits were now seeking deep vengeance. When Sarah asked what she should do, the psychic said to her to build a home for herself and for the spirits who have fallen from this terrible weapon, too. You must never stop building the house. If you continue building, you will live forever. But if you stop, then you will die. And that’s exactly what Sarah did…
Today, there are 160 rooms, 40 bedrooms, two ballrooms (one incomplete and one complete), 44 fireplaces, 10,000 window panes, 17 chimneys, two basements and three elevators. Most of the halls, doors, and windows lead nowhere and end suddenly. There is a huge array of colors and materials throughout the house, and it took 20,500 gallons of paint to cover the whole house.
I’ve always been so fascinated with this building and the story behind it. :)
