  2. I love looking out old places like this. It really makes me think about things like, what did it look like when it was all fixed up, who lived there, and all sorts of other things. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Oh, my word. That's one of the most peaceful, yet melancholy pictures I think I've ever seen. Makes you want to just fix the old girl up, put some rocking chairs on that porch and have some kids playing in the yard. Ah, sweetness.

  14. Just think of all the life that happened in this rather fine house for it's period. I loved the peek of open fields of grass beyond. Those trees are shadowing this house now.. poor old place. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  16. What a dream house ! Would love to renovate it and make a small hotel out of it.

    Please have you all a good Wednesday.

  17. I agree. It isn't material things that make us happy.

  18. You remind me. I took some photos in October of a similarly deteriorating house in western Massachusetts. I should dig those pix out of my archives.

  25. I have started a photo project of abandoned places. When I see a home like the one in your photo I always wonder why and who.

  30. I couldn't agree more with Dale Carnegie. I bet this house was a beauty back in its day.
