Friday’s Fences – An Open House Bonus

During the holidays, a former classmate of mine hosted an Open House, and Motor Man and I attended.  On their property, off to the side of their home is this old, old house.

Of course, I headed right over to take pictures.

  1. oh my that is incredibly charming!!! Have you seen the new show on HGTV called “Rehab Addict?” you would love it. She restores old homes and preserves their history and character…this photo reminded me of that. Have a great day!

  2. What a find! Love the rustic charm of that old place!

  3. It’s grand that you have your camera at the ready all the time….you never know when a good fence, barn or horse photo op will happen! Great shots…..

  4. Oooo that house looks very interesting! Cute little fence with a sturdy post.

  5. When I see old houses like that I always wonder what their history is, who lived there, why was the house abandoned, etc. There’s always a story there to tell I think.

  6. I love that house. I adore rustic things and that most certainly is. I would have been like you, rushing straight over to it.

  7. What charnming quaint house. Looks like a Kinkaid painting.

  8. What a great scene! Living in the city, I find it hard to find good photo ops. I ned to get out into the country with Patti to find some good pictures.

  16. I didn’t notice the fence at first. The old house is so quaint. I always have to wonder who lived in them and how many were in the family, etc.

  27. I’m really grateful that you always have your camera with you — I have seen so much of your part of the world. My sons will be moving to Newport News next month so who knows…. I may have the opportunity to visit Virginia sometime in the next two years…
