Ever Changing

Ever Changing
As many of you know by now, I love vintage, old, antique, and retro.
I love a good junk or thrift store! Yes I do!
I love to photgraph old houses, barnes and other buildings.
Things from days-gone-by are my love.
They reflect the past; tell stories, and illustrate the ever changing times.

 As I passed this fairyland house while shopping the 502 Miles of the U.S. 11 Antique Alley Yard Sale one year, I came to a sudden stop, turned the car around quickly, stopped and jumped out…I stood mesmerized at its beauty and the story it would tell. My imagination ran with thoughts of the people it raised, gathered round in each room, working and playing. I pictured the work that had to be done to keep up this place, make it run, and support its families. God’s beautiful nature outside just adds to the scene. A small church sits to the left in the foreground next to the road making it a place I would love to live in….out in the rural country…quiet and serene. I clicked photos for a good 20-30 minutes or so…trying to capture its true splendor and glory. Oh what I would have given to go closer and even inside this home. Needless to say among my great yard sale finds of old and vintage; I found this place…a place of the past bringing beauty to the present.

17/30 Today I am grateful for the past…all things old, vintage, retro and antique!
PS: plus yard sales, thrift stores and junk!




Note: My photo has been worked with an aged, painterly look using textures, etc…
