Thankful Thursday

Out of the archives, this New Orleans house has the barest touch of picket fence in the foreground.



Thankful this Thursday for cool summer mornings, lightening bugs to decorate the night sky, and air conditioning......especially the air conditioning. 

Linking up with Texwisgirl today.....

  5. This is a masterpiece! I like how you created it, and the slight mention of the fence lining the bottom. Beautiful! In so many ways.

  6. I love what you've done with your photo, this house looks to have a million and one stores behind those doors, and I can hear the slapping of those screen doors, over and over again. Really lovely!

  8. Oh...I can only imagine the History of this place. Very neat and I really like how you gave the viewers just a hint of the old picket fence.

  9. I looked out at dusk last night and there were so many lightning bugs. They always bring back such wonderful childhood memories. xo Laura

  12. No air conditioning here, I don't think it is all that healthy unless you have some chronic problem that requires it.

  13. I am glad you are enjoying your air conditioning. Here it has been so cold, I almost regret turning off the central heat!

  22. Nice picture, no doubt this house needs cooling down, particularly as there's trees like that in the garden.
