RURAL SPLENDOR:
ABANDONED BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

This jewel of a farmhouse
shows the craft of hand made beauty
in rural Illinois, 100 years ago.

Unoccupied today,
but carefully left standing,
as a reminder of a simpler life
in elegant style.

The detail and workmanship
shine through,
each door and window intact
with privacy preserved by country lace curtains.

I wonder how each room is still furnished.
Beautifully, I'm sure.

  3. I've always dreamed of a house, it's beautiful ...
    You're not going to believe, but I found a similar one in my town ... something so special, it seems an imitation ...
    A thousand kisses Rick, when you want to go to the beach.

  5. I love these kind of houses so much, seeing this in real would be a reason for me to visit America once. If I would have a lot of money and a beautiful piece of space I would build it here in Belgium my own :).
    Wishing you happy holidays and all the best for 2012.
