This Old House

This Old House

I think I have shown this old house before but I just love the colours and the rustic-ness of it.  It was an old house that was out in the middle of a field that my husband and I spotted during a ride in the country one day in the fall.  I always wonder who lived in it and why did they leave it.   I used Pdpa texture “age it” over the top and added a vintage frame that I thought went with it from The Coffeeshop Blog.

Friday is Photo Art Friday at Pixel Dust Photo Art.  The theme this week was entrances and exits.  Have a great day.

I am drawn to old houses ... I have seen this likeness in Colorado in a ghost town. It does make you wonder who has passed through that door ... Nice choice!

A beautiful piece of art. The building is so weathered. I agree.....there must be an interesting history that goes with it.

Hard to imagine a better image for the theme, Valerie. Beautifully edited.

Love your addition of a ghostly, golden cowboy hovering in the bold sunset, Jeanne!
Hello Val
A real fixer upper with walls that could tell stories.

I just love your old building. It has so much character. One can just imagine the people coming and going through this doorway.

This is a beautiful photo. I love old falling down houses and barns, as sad as it is to see them, and wonder of the families that lived and worked in them. A great discovery. Enjoy the weekend. Pamela

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
