Another story untold....

We passed this old home a few days back on one of our drives....someone lives in it. It is another house full of untold stories. I would love to see inside. Have you ever noticed how some two story homes seem so dark and dreary inside and others seem light and airy. I wonder why that is. One would think it was the direction the houses face, but I am setting here thinking to two houses that face the same direction...one is like walking into sunshine when you walk in and the other feels like waking up to a cloudy day when entered.

I'm like you Rose, I see places like this and I want to go inside. I want to know the story behind these interesting places.

I see your grand baby is getting big. What a cutie pie. I too love old barns and houses like this. We got the chance to go inside of a 100 year old house and visit with it's Amish occupants. It was a visit I will never forget.

It would intesting to see the inside of this house. The outside definitely needs some TLC.

A fine looking older place. It shows signs of wear and tear, but appears to be basically sound. Much more important would be those inside.It would be nice to visit and see whether this one was one of the bright airy places or the "cloudy day" variety.

Neat picture/story, Rose. Looks like someone painted as far UP as they could go without a big ladder.

I hope the inside is in better condition than the outside looks. Wouldn't it be fun to take an old house like this and renovate it???? Probably would cost an arm and a leg.

Thanks, Rose.
Hugs,
Betsy

I know what you mean, and this one looks like it's had a lack of care...perhaps only for want of resources. It could be fantastic, though.

I wonder how much it costs to heat a house like that.

There is so much to see and think about in these two photos...

Lorelei in dreamland is precious. The sleep of innocence born of trust her needs will be taken care of...

The second, almost spooky. What doth go on behind closed doors. Lots of stories there, probably.

How do you remember all those old rhymes? Oh, that's right - good ol' Google!

Have a great day!

Very interesting! The photo is interesting and so are the words. Love to imagine what's inside.

I remember the Teddy Bear rhyme, Rose, from my own childhood. Boy, these rhymes sure get around, don't they?

I just got back from a few days in Upstate New York and there are tons of old houses like this along the road we travel to Rochester. Many were grand homes once...but times have changed. Looks like insulation has been blown into this one through all the holes so whoever lives there is at least warm.

You need to do a book called "Untold Stories" with photos of all the interesting houses and barns you see. Of course, I know it would frustrate you to not really know the stories :-)
