Awwww.... kinda sad! It's a little more than a fixer-upper.... *grin*
looks like it could use a little love... wonderful photos
Poor house. When I see these abandoned houses, I always want to know their story. Who loved them and who left them to die a slow death, and why. Great shots. I'm particularly fond of the vintage look.
Sad. Sad. That one is past saving. =(
Surprised high winds haven't taken it down to the ground. Too late to salvage, but I love your eternally positive attitude about saving stuff like this! Margie
The vintage look fits it well. A bit of charm, a bit of haunted. :)
That does look like a brown dog! I always wonder about old places..who lived there ..what were they like..why is it abandoned..is it haunted..
I feel sorry for those old houses. I am glad it isn't a pup on the porch!
How sad. I always think that there must not be any family left who wanted the old place when places get like that.
I do believe that's a certifiable log house. But what big windows it has. Usually, because glass was hard to come by and expensive, the windows were quite small. Wouldn't you love to get behind the fence and peek through those windows?
"that's not a brown dog on the steps"I needed that, looks like it could've been sitting there for centuries awaiting the ghost of his owner or something.Looks quite beautiful in its way.
So sad to see houses abandoned like this. It does make you wonder what the story is behind them. LOL....that brown leaf does look like a dog!!!
Love the vintage treatment ... of course you knew I would. LOL! I like the thought of the dog on the steps .. you couldn't have planned that any better!
I LOVE these! Growing up, we used to find old places like this and poke around them. It was a great time to imagine the days gone by.
i always feel sad when i see houses abandoned like this.you cannot help but think of the waste, or of the happy times once spent there.btw. great vintage treatment!
OH MY, I was just going to say...is that a brown dog...how funny! Aren't old places just filled with wonder, character, and charm...very nice~
Even though it's sad to see the abandoned houses, it makes you wonder about the story of the people who lived there.
Perfect choices fro that vintage treatment. That leaf sure does look like ad dog. :)
Yes, kind of disintegrating...ancient but interesting. I had to chuckle because I did think that might have been a dog on the porch--LOL! ;)
these buildings do tell a sad story, but I really love seeing them, they have so much history and i wonder who lived there and when and about their lives. it really does look like a dog on the porch. is the property abandoned? or does someone live there in another house? it looks well kept except for the house and barn.
I like the vintage treatment and, yes, I thought there was a dog on the porch! LOL!!
Wow - whenever I see a place like this, I start wondering about the folks who lived there? What their life was like? All the babies probably born there? Good times spent in the yard?Okay - I'm a bit sappy about old houses. Thanks for sharing this one!
These are awesome photos! I'm glad you took the time to stop. The vintage treatment is perfect for the subject.
I always want to buy places like this and fix them...may I will. right after I pick up my lottery winnings..:)Love the processing
The vintage look you gave to a couple of the pics really fit the subject well. As much as I like color, B&W or Sepia tones, just seems to make some scenes make a statement.
What a cute little places. I love abandoned houses...
These are great! Love the Sepia look. Neat old place with a lot of character.
Great shots of this little old place! Don't you like to think of when it was new and some family was eagerly moving in? With those big windows, it must have been so light and cheery inside.
Thank you thank you for this post ...What a little hidden treasure!
Looks like my kinda place to shoot, too =)
What a neat little house. I would fit in well with it. Sometimes that is how I feel. This is the type of subject I like do a pen & ink art piece of. Now where did I put my pens? Have a nice Christmas Theresa.
Great photos! Love the vintage treatment on them!
One of these days when you drive by it's going to be a pile of rubble on the round, so it's good that you took these great photos now. Really nice shots, and yeah I would have thought that was a dog, waiting hopefully on the porch.
Nothing more poignant than abandoned farmsteads. Makes me want to cry for the lost dreams of someone. Beautiful pictures though and thank you for sharing them -- we always look long and hard when we pass these kind of places.
Many times out here a family moved into town and just left the house to rot. This one is very interesting.
haha that is what it looked like too.Oh don't you wish you could restore it. It looks like it was a lovely little farm and home at one time. I would love the timbers that are in that barn. I love old wood like that.
Hmmm. Not gone yet...but not long for this world either. :)
When I see really old abandoned houses, I wonder what happened...way back then. (One thing that caught my eye was the green in the photo, which is so different from here right now. Of course, you're in the "warm" part of Texas, I think.)
Nice pictures. I love old houses even in disrepair. It makes you want to know the story...
Thanks for the leaf explanation. I thought the same thing, for a moment. :)
Wonderful pictures!! Just love old building...even if they are falling down!!
Very nice! Whenever I see places like this my brain fills up with questions about the people who lived there.
Just makes me wonder and think about what used to happen there... these are lovely!
I must say, that house kind of looks like a bigger version of our Love Shack. Don't know why the human can't make it look fantastic they way you've done for this old place.
T, definitely seen better days! I can still imagine what it looked like when it was brand new! Someones pride and joy!
I wonder what the story is, why it was abandoned.
You should zoom in on the front of that barn as the criss cross old wood is fascinating... and I love your texture! I like the thought of the dog awaiting his masters return (sad as that would be...)
Looks as though it was a lovely place at one time. Sad to see it in such ruins! Terrific captures as always. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday filled with lots of love and laughter!Sylvia
It is sad to see houses so run down... but the photos are GREAT!
I thought there was a dog sitting on the porch. A bloodhound or something. But it turns out to be a leaf caught in the fence!
What an amazing looking place.
I love the photos. I wonder what this place was used for in the past.
Lots of potential, for the handyman. It did look like a brown dog :O)
nice photos....bet there are some stories in those walls...
Those buildings need some TLC!I thought that was a dog on the porch and then I read about the leaf. LOLMerry Christmas Teresa!
I don't think that anyone is living there, or do they? Good pictures.
It's more of a knocker-downer than a fixer-upper. Neat images.
What a shame. It looks like such a sweet little house
Nothing a little spackle and paint couldn't fix ;-) I'd have to look for a hole in the fence.
Now, that's what we call a real fix~er~upper here in the Ozarks! Heeehehehe!!!I actually did think that was a dog on the porch. God bless and have yourself a bright and beautiful Christmas.MERRY CHRISTMAS YA'LL!!! :o)
There's something so sad about a house that's forgotten and so alone...I always want to take pictures of them, so they're remembered.
Great photos, I love the black&white ones!Lots of greetings!:)
I like this old place...wish it had a nice family to love. Great shots!
I don't know what it is about old rundown homesteads but I am attracted to them. I love this post.
What is it about this kind of decay that is so beautiful? I love these pictures!!
Alittle spooky but in the same time very charming...great photos!
If walls could talk. Great job capturing these sighs. If they only knew they were famous!
I always wonder what the story is behind old homes. Was it full of love once? I hope so.xo Catherine
I love these - looks like it was once a really quaint wee house.
Wow! What a rundown, yet cool looking place! Makes you wonder what it was like when it was new and who lived there over the years.
Such a shame to see a house in decay, but its very interesting to see! I wanted to wish you a very Happy Christmas and New Year xx
I love the vintage style. Poor little house, needs some TLC, ok more than that! Love the photos!
Love the vintage treatment.Sad to see old, abandoned houses.They always make me wonder what are their stories?Great shots!
It certainly has seen better days. The sweet old house looks great with the vintage treatment and full color too.
Now that's what I call old, but it is sad to see the house and barn so run down, it makes me wonder why?.Hugs,Pam
A wonderful little place to see...It's Christmas and the title of this post sounds like me :(
Lovely Blog...I wish you a merry christmas
I would so love to check that place out! What a great homestead at one time! I wish someone had 'rescued' it before it was too late. As with any old vacant house, I'd also love to know why such a great place was abandoned.
Hi Theresa, Seeing that old place made me wonder what kind of life when on there one day. Too bad there aren't some family members who want to keep that place --and fix it up!!!!! Thanks for sharing.Merry Christmas.Hugs,Betsy
ooooohhhh this is so sad to see, so sad to think about the families that have come and gone.all the people who loved this place, those that called it home!! i always think about my home and who will love it after me!!
You know Tex, in looking back at posts I've missed in the past few months, you create such remarkable visions with your lens, this one is true to form. I love that last photo and imagine it to be a jigsaw puzzle. Very lovely Tex and I like your header...
They always make such interesting subjects.
Ooooo- what an interesting place. I would love to happen upon something similar here. Picture paradise.
The B&W photo of the front of the house is particularly poignant and actually made me more than a little sad.I'm sure there were many happy times spent in this little home but in its present state it just evokes sadness.
Beautiful pictures :0) Its a bit sad though and see the old house like this ...wonder how it was once ? Merry Christmas to you :0)
"Hanging on by a Thread" I'm sure there is so much history tucked into that building.
Had to be a cute place in it's day. The double windows on each side must have been unique. I can hear a young wife saying, "....but I need enough light to start my seeds!" glad you cleared up that was a leaf....it does look like a dog LOL!
Why is it I am now thinking about band-aids? The shed looks like one big owie!
It is sad to be abandoned even for houses.Good photography.
I'm afraid we'll be seeing more old abandoned houses... it's just too expensive to fix them up and make them energy efficient. Much simpler to just drag a mobile home onto the property.I'm with everybody else.... so sad. But love the photos!!
So many feelings about this....its beauty, wondering what it was like "in the day", sad, and even a little spooky. I like its symmetry and all the trees. And I'm glad you said something about the leaf because I was wonderin' about it.
It just needs a little TLC, and a coat of paint, a handy man's dream!
Aww....the stories ......
Exploring places like this makes my heart beat faster!And that does look like a dog on the porch! How strange is that..xo, misha
Really "pull me in, take a look" photos . . . I love "stories" and can't help but wonder who . . . why . . . when . . .
They could use this property for a photo shoot or in a movie of some kind. Neat.
I'm happy you stopped there. This are great pictures!
Okay - it has seen better days for sure. sandie
Wow !!I love the last photo !! Very special mood !!Thank you for your comments on my blog !!
Interesting looks. Reminds me of my great-grandparent's old home place. The vintage look adds such warmth to it.
i do love these sad, old structures.
I love this one! It's kinda cute in its own creepy way. You need to use it for your "put a fence in front of it" series...or whatever the heck you call that series. No, really. I do pay attention to your blog. I just think you need to have all male dogs and all your series, linkies and such, should just be called "the Series". Quit confusing meeeee!
Places like this always make me wonder who lived there, what memories were shared there, etc. It's bitter sweet.
I love it in vintage flavor....that leaf did look like a dog...are you positive it was a leaf;)
Glad I got to see this! ♥
