I love this bench even though it's a bit rusty. It's still sturdy, and beautiful to me. A great place to read a book in the dappled shade or sneak a tasty baked crumpet. Even a place to rest your body while your mind continues to dream.
This poor chippy white house needs some loving. I had to stop along the road and take a picture of it. I try to imagine a happy family living here at one time with a fire in the fireplace and bread or cookies baking in the oven. I wonder how many years this home has been vacant? It is not close by, in fact, it is in Southern Virginia outside of a town called Tappahannock. Wouldn't it be great if it came back to life again. For now it's only company is a beehive and a round haybale. If this house could talk I would be listening.
Do stop by Faded Charm for lovely white wednesday photographs. Probably none so sad as this deserted home.
