“Nearly everything I have is old,” says Jane Hodges, while smiling as she talks about the furnishings in the lovely 1930s cottage she calls home. Once owned by her in-laws, the bright and breezy house is as gracious as Jane herself, and she has filled it to the brim with an enchanting collection of antiques that have equally enchanting histories.
