Days Gone By

Country Boy is working an extra half shift today so I called a neighbor to see if she would like to go out to lunch.  There is a cafe in a neighboring town that I have been wanting to try since the first of the year and I thought she would like the place so that is where we headed.  We were not disappointed... what a cute, quaint and fabulous place!  The food was delicious, the patrons were friendly and we had a really great time!  The cafe is in an old house and has two shops located in the house as well.  After a delicious lunch, we spent some time browsing the shops, oohing and awwing at all the cute stuff!

Behind the cafe was another old house that is up for sale.  I would love to purchase this house and have it moved onto our property.























Upon closer inspection, it would definitely be a fixer-upper if it even survived the move!
























Country Boy and I would love to purchase an old house like this and renovate it to its former glory!  Maybe someday!
























Yep, a little work needed!
























Look at all the details on this house!  I can't help wondering why this (and many other) fabulous old houses are abandoned and unwanted.  They just don't build houses like these anymore with such fine craftsmanship and this large.

We are being blessed with an awesome rain right now!  The birds are chirping, the frogs are croaking and my yard and plants are soaking it up!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Till next time,

It reminds me just a bit of our house. That double wrap-around porch is to die for! I must show the hubby. :)

What a beautiful house! I can picture the wicker rockers on the lower level porch and the woman leaning on the railing upstairs faning herself. That would certainly be a big project...but oh what fun!

I love old houses like that. They have a certain character that the modern cookie cutters can't even approach.
