Old homes, nothing a new coat of paint would fix...
As I drive down the roads near my town, I sometimes notice houses that are no longer lived in. Sometimes they are soo hidden in the woods that you really have to look to see it. I often wonder what kind of lives were lived there? Did they decorate like we do, paint the walls and match the curtains to the rest of the rooms? I see that some have been abandoned years ago or sometimes a new house has been built behind the old house to replace the old one. I would LOVE to someday live in some 100 year old house, but I feel like I couldn't just give it a new coat of paint and make livable, can you imagine living in some of these houses?! Really they should be torn down, that's why I chose to photograph them, they will be gone one day. Forever a memory.....
This one has a home built behind it.
This was a tiny home,
next to this slightly bigger one.
The front door.
I LOVE this old window, I wonder did she set pies there to cool?!
When I first moved into my house, people lived in this one, now you can barely see it.
I am amazed at how fast a house can be taken over by nature.
It sure takes a lot to take care of a home ♥
This one is my favorite, I have been truly inspired to paint an old house ☺
