Little house on the prairie?

I've always liked the looks of this tiny place. It just kind of sits out there, rather forgotten.

Classic Typical Texas Country Homestead. I like it, too.

Linda said...

I like it too! It does look forgotten, but looks to be in pretty good shape for something abandoned!

R.Ramakrishnan said...

What a charming little white cottage in the middle of nowhere. Far from the madding crowd:)

Betty Roan said...

It makes me want to call a carpenter and get to work. Poor neglected house.

Steve Gravano said...

It's charming to me, the perfect prairie starter ranch.

Tanya said...

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

Charming and lonely

Paula said...

So neat~ it almost looks like a little dollhouse!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

It is a cute little house!

Sandra said...

this is exactly the type home we would love to live in, but i would want it in a lot of trees, not in the prarie. i love the house, i zoomed up close and it looks like someone lives in it. i thought the box on the side was AC but it is a window box. love it

A lot of detail went into the construction with the little dormers. It reminds me of a little pink house not far from my home. (from my old blog)

Oh boy would I have had fun taking photos there what a photogenic old place it is

Liz said...

It's gorgeous!! I love it!

Lynne said...

Hmmm . . . I like it too! It for sure, is a Little House in the Prarie . . . great photographs!

DJan said...

It certainly does look all alone out there. Are there any pathways to approach it? I don't think anybody lives there; there's no signs of it anyway.

Jana said...

It looks so peaceful...that is as long as I'm not the one needing to do the repairs on it.

Rohrerbot said...

This is an extremely interesting place. Alone. Peaceful. I'd live there. Not that I'm a loner....just like all that open space!

Catherine said...

And no trees beside it. Is this in Saskatchewan? LOL!

Gone Country said...

What a great little place!

It's nice to see old places like that. We have a few around here; the original homesteading places called Florida Cracker houses.

Jan n Jer said...

It's really cute but looks so lonely!

Judy @ daily yarns said...

That is sooooo cute! I could see that as my sewing studio.

Negerigeletschtempoit said...

What an adorable little house. It makes me want to go and renew it, make it alive again.

bj said...

I WANT that little house.!!

Mamabug said...

I'd love to live in this little house. I think it's kinda cute.

S. J. Q. said...

That's a very cute little house! No one lives there? Such a shame if they do not, must be a great view!

Jill said...

I can't help to think of Little House on the Prairie when I see it. It's adorable.

Ginger said...

A few shades tree around it and it would be perfect for me! Tiny means less cleaning and more time outside!

Ms. Becky said...

wow I want to live there!!! perfect size for a home - it would be difficult to keep clutter in that house. great find. happy day to you TWG.

Linda said...

It looks as if it was built with great attention to detail and was probably someone's pride and joy in its early life. It does look lonely now, though.

Pam said...

What a charming little house on the Texas prairie.

rainfield61 said...

A little but very attractive house.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

What a cute little house on the prairie!

Lois Evensen said...

It almost looks like it could be folded flat and pulled away to another place to be set up once again....

Sylvia K said...

The perfect little house on the prairie! What a fun shot! Does look as though it could be folded flat if need be!!

Susan said...

It is a cute place, to bad it's forgotten.

bailey-road.com said...

Oh, I love it!

islandwonder said...

Absolutely adorable. It is a life size play house.

Ron said...

Where's the trees? How can you live somewhere without trees around? (and a lawn mower LOL)

Inger said...

You certainly came up with the perfect name for that place.

Hanne Bente said...

Oh, a wonderful place, "Little House on the Prairie"
There has been a TV series in Denmark called "Little House on the Prairie," based on the American author Laura Ingalls Wilder's own real memories.
Thanks for your comment on my blog, hope you have solved the problem.
I also have a blog called: Mad about everyday life ("The immediate thing") house / garden / nature / kayak etc. If you want to see it is addr. www.finus.dk
Wishing you a good Wednesday night.

Farm Girl said...

I want that house!!! That is awesome. It seems like I have seen it like in Country Living or something. Looking at it I can swear I know what it looks like inside.
That is a great little house and I like it being surrounded by green.

1st Man said...

What a great little house. makes me want to go up there and take care of it. Some flowers, a few fruit trees, a couple of rockers on the porch and it'll be good to go!

Brita said...

Looks simple and easy going out. I get the feeling that the skin is not occupied. Is it a deserted houses?

Red said...

Obviously someone had a dream! They ended and the remains of the dream still stands. Nice photo to show the loneliness of this little house.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

It's so charming! I'd love to get my hands on that place and rehab it. Awesome!

Kelly said...

...beautiful scene. I can only imagine all the hard work that went on in that house years and years ago. It still looks like it's in good shape for being abandoned so long ago.

Buttons said...

Wow I like it too. B

Sall's Country Life said...

A work in progress (just like home)!

Terri Buster said...

Cute little place- I wonder why it is abandoned?

Robin said...

T, right out there on the baldyass prairie!

Laura Delegal - Leroy Photography said...

Oh, I like it too. It unique and cozy. Looks to be about the size of what I want when I retire. Of course, I need a big barn in the back to put all my "stuff." :) Hope you have a good week.

Nancy said...

I like it too...Looks like a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of life.....

Charade said...

It looks like it could have been built as a studio prop. Wonder if they've ever rented it out for movies? It would make a great studio.

It's me said...

Great !!...lovely day darling....love Ria...xxx..

Bob Bushell said...

Brilliant photos of a wonderful house.

Eyeliquor said...

Love the first capture!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Isn't it sweet, kind of like a little play-house out there. It's probably a lot bigger than my house, but we live in a neighborhood of tiny houses.... it's all that space around it that dwarfs it.)

Kay said...

Do you know how old this little homestead is?

~from my front porch in the mountains~ said...

I love it! Since I was a kid, visiting places like this makes my heart go pitter-patter!
OK, your next assignment is to find out the history on it!!! :)
Have a great day, Theresa!
xo, misha

John McElveen said...

COOL PLACE--Thanks for letting us see it!

Dianne said...

I am right now watching Nate Burkis and he's doing a segment on the growing trend for tiny homes

how cool is that!

I love this little place
I'd be happy there

RoeH said...

Love abandoned homes. But they made me sad also. Imagine the stories they could tell.

Sandy said...

I like it too. I would be crossing some fences to go check it out *hint, hint*. I bet the inside holds some treasures and great photo opportunities.

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

I'd like to buy it and fix it up.
Where are Pa and Half Pint? ;)

Honest Abe said...

Is it the apparent isolation or something about the contrasts that appeals to people?

I like it.

EM Illustrator said...

Oh, I wouldn't mind escaping to a place like that right now :)

holdingmoments said...

I like it too.
I think I could be happy there :-)

MarmePurl said...

I want that little house. On my farm. For my mother.
Perfect.

Daffycat said...

A lovely little place. How sad it's all alone =(

Lindsjö taxar said...

Lovely house, why dont somebody live there? Very nice picture!

Montanagirl said...

How cute is that !! Like a mini chalet. Maybe it's just a summer cabin??

aarond said...

Oh, would I like to get ahold of that place and fix the inside up. Adorable!!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi TexWisGirl, Having come from California where everything is all permitted zoned and master planned, it is nice to see some originality in housing. The wide-open spaces encourages people to build small or huge, it seems. Great pictures! Have a fine day!

Denise said...

What a lovely place. Even in its decline, it still has a lot of beauty.

bon bon said...

it almost looks like a doll house. your captures are beautiful with the blue sky and wind-swept grasses...

Chatty Crone said...

Gosh that is out in the middle of nowhere - nice and pretty though. sandie

Cat said...

Did you think we'd ever see grass that green again!? Delightfully charming.

CameraCruise said...

It's wonderful, love it!

rkbsnana said...

Is that a photo or a painting. Beautiful.

Tiago Braga said...

once day i will have a house like this one, i love the nature and things like this =)

Jo's World said...

Looks comfy to me, but you really got to get in and check it out to know for sure!

Cheers,

Jo

Debbie said...

so neat and cute, i love those dormer windows!! someone must be caring for it??

you gave this entry the perfect title!!

Barb said...

I'm always intrigued by places like this. I want to know the story.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I always want to know the stories of places like this too. One of the reasons I was drawn to our house was because it had been empty for more than 2 years and just seemed so lonely and void of life and needed us...

Tammy said...

Great photos~love the colors. Ok, and I'll admit, I loved Little House on the Prairie when I was a kid..

Susan said...

I love the size, shape and isolation of this house.

Annette said...

That little place is wonderful!!

Randy said...

Love it! I have the perfect piece of property for one that size.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great pictures... What a cute little house... I loved that old show and watched most all of the episodes....

Hugs,
Betsy

Candy C. said...

What a cute little house, love the style! :)

Paula said...

I love it and the porches but I would sure be planing some trees. The ones I see doesn't look like shade trees.

SweetMarie said...

Love your new header! This is a perfect title for this post. Pretty pics!

Daniel LaFrance said...

The house looks bare with just a fence. Could use some colour to create a little contrast.

Just say'in.

Rita said...

Okay--senior moment. This reminded me of that painting of the girl half lying on the grass or field looking up at the house on the hill--and I've drawn a complete blank--even though I can see it in my head. LOL! Oh well. ;)

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

It's a very charming little house. Look at those little dormers!

BlueShell said...

Oh..that is so nice, so peaceful: yes....I used to see that movie: little house on the prairie! I was a child and I loved it!
Lovely photos dear!
Hugs
BShell

Jeevan said...

Would love to be a resident of it! It looks little and lovely :)

Betty Manousos said...

such lovely views and photos!
i really like that first one.

heyBJK said...

Wow, that's awesome! What a great little house!

SquirrelQueen said...

More like the big house on the prairie but very cool. I would have had to plant at least one or two trees.

Nancy said...

What a neat house! It looks like it's had some siding work done -- a mystery, for sure!

Thank you for sharing at RT this week, Theresa. xoxo

Stewart M said...

That house does look a little lost.

As you can imagine I did get rather excited when I found the woodpecker in my friends yard!

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

ladyfi said...

Wow - what an adorable little house. Fabulous!

Kristy LifenReflection said...

It is adorable, it would make a great retreat for the weekend!

JM said...

So cute! Love the little windows on a row.

Kathy said...

Such a cute little house. I'm thinking it surely can't be very old because anyone living there for any period of time at all surely would have put some trees around it.

georgettesullins said...

What an oasis for someone in a sea of green.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

I too love the fences and sure would like to explore that Little House on the Prairie.

Millie said...

I would really enjoy a cute little house like that for me and my kids.

Michaele said...

Love, love, love the little pop-out window : )

missing moments said...

It looks so charming sitting there. I wonder if someone lives in it?

pattisjarrett said...

Interesting little house. And green grass as far as the eye can see!

Rose said...

I have a place I call "The Little House on the Prairie"--I don't know how many photos I have of it. several...and I would be taking photos of this place often, too...

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

AWK! there it is again. Why didn't you tell me you did an older post? Are you recycling pictures? tsk tsk
