Beautiful! Like an old postcard!
gorgeous....there are so many of these sweet old abandoned homes around here...i always wonder how they got that way. who just leaves a house?
Vintage and ,let me say, romantic...
reminds me of sweet home Virginia...a front porch with double windows above!
A charming house -- love your editing on this, Michelle. :)
"Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience. It isn't more complicated than that. It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is, without either clinging to it or rejecting it. It requires no effort or even thought, just a certain kind of spirit."Sylvia Boorstein
Beautiful!....When I see an old abandoned home place like this one, I think about the memories that are held captive inside those walls...
Did you get any closer? Wonderful old house and I love the editing too.
Lovely image, enchanting home!
Hmmm, makes me want to wander around inside to see what was left behind. Not to take mind you, just to learn about the last people who lived there.
I get sad to see homes like this..I wonder how many generations lived there before someone just let it go. xo
I love your idea of Thoughtless thursday. I make sure to always jump over on Thursdays!
Where do you find these places? You have to wonder about that house's story.
sigh...so lovely!!! :-)
sigh.... so nostalgic! Love it!
That house would be so much fun to renovate. It has a very symmetrical look. Hmmm...I could see it as a cottage with style. Nice photo.
What an awesome place! I want to buy and fix it up and make it a happy house again:)
Another forgotten little house full of memories and mysteries. Reminds me of my grandparents farm home. I rescued the Hoosier and 5 legged oak table out of it before it was razed and turned to farmland. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
gorgeous! no words needed!
I love these old buildings that are tucked away behind over-grown grasses and trees. They always seem to hold a story, don't they? You should host a writing blog and post these kinds of photos for people to create their own stories. I bet you would get some great stuff.
The colors fit the subject. Just beautiful.
How many wonderful summer weekends must have passed through this beautiful place ...
Ssuuwweeeeetttt photo!Dann in Ohio
Surely this is a sepia postcard from the olden days . . .
Thanks for the get well wishes for Ren, and good luck at State. I hope you guys go all the way. Lovely pic, as usual.
Great treatment of that old house - looks like an old family snapshot from way back !And a wonderful 'ode to the trees' - beautiful shots.Those lemon bars DO look so healthy !
Like a painting!
It is a beautiful image. It certainly achieves a lot of positive reaction focused on distant memories.Someone mentioned 'vintage'; it reminds me of how paper yellows with age.Well done!!! Perhaps you'll share your technique with your faithful followers. :)
If those wall could talk...what stories would they tell? Makes me wonder how a home like that gets abandoned.
Such an intriguing photo - it would draw me in, too.
