Leila at bookshelves of doom made me happy by directing me to an article about Shirley Jackson's houses in Bennington. If you click on the photo of the yellow house, you'll be able to see the second home she lived in. I am...reassured...to seem them looking so lovely now, as if that might mean that they looked beautiful and comfortable and comforting when she lived in them, too.
This article includes sketches Jackson made of floor plans and exteriors of houses that appeared in her writing. I've been known to do that, too!
The Jackson house piece appears at Writers' Houses, a beautiful site. I'm going to try to visit it before leaving on trips to see if there are any pilgrimages I can make.
