The Lemp Mansion

This is a week late, but like I mentioned before, I can no longer access Blogger at work and I just don't usually have the time or the inclination to touch the computer when I get home. Maybe once I get my wireless set-up.

My mom and I went with some girls from her work for a nighttime tour of the supposedly haunted Lemp Mansion here in St. Louis. I got to hold the infrared camera, which is supposed to show you orbs, which are ghosts. You walk around in the dark and the only way to really see anything is through this camera. Well, I was so distracted by all the fab furnishings that I couldn't really concentrate on the ghost part. Check out some of the pictures.

*Second Floor Bedroom*
Just look at those lights... mmm... and the wardrobe...

*Third Floor Bedroom(I think)*
Love that chair!!


*Buffet in hallway on third floor*
I wanted to bring this home with me. Beauty, no?


*Bathroom of the Lavender Lady*
Do you see the penny tile on the floor? And I'm not sure if anyone can tell, but the fireplace is shiny white subway tile. So apparently these things never go out of style. Ooh, and the toilet was just like ours. I wanted to steal it, cause ours still(!) leaks. 


*Ceiling in the Basement*
This was all glass mosaic. 


 *Floor in the Basement*

So, lovely right? I kinda wish I had taken a tour of the house before we went so I wasn't so distracted by the house itself. I'm not really sure I believe in ghosts, but I am open to the possibility and I kinda feel like I missed out on the scary Halloween factor of it all. I guess we'll just have to go back next year!
