forgotten house

I imagine that this house held quite a few children as it's a bit bigger than most abandoned houses that I see. I can just imagine the laughter and noise on a summer's day.

It looks very nostalgic in black and white - wouldn't it be great to be able to bring in back to life again and fill it with sunshine and laughter?

How sad and lonely. I would love to know the history.

I like it in sepia. The windows are different than most we see around here. Lovely old house. Thanks for linking up.

Oh, what a wonderful old house. Don't we wish it could tell us the stories of it's life. I have always wished that ancient/old trees and old houses/castles/caves could have the gift of speech in some form.

Delightful house. Look at all the windows to let in all the light.

A lovely sepia image. I often wonder about the people who lived in these old houses and what stories they could tell.

This is wonderful. The tones are quite lovely. It is a very unique design for a house. I rather like it.

It's fun to imagine the people that might have lived here. . . pictures always have a story to tell :)

It looks like it has a lot of character to it. I'd love to see the inside, as well.

I love old houses, and this one stole my heart and fired up my imagination. Can't you just see smiling little faces peeking through the wonderful windows in the front?

Linda said...

Nice use of sepia, appropriate to a faded home.

Hi Y'all!

It's so sad to see once happy homes abandoned. They deteriorate so quickly.

Y'all come by now,

I love old abandoned buildings. I always imagine the stories they could tell if they could talk. This one had lovely windows in its day.

It really makes you want to know the whole story doesn't it? Wonderful picture and treatment.
