Little old cottage


I'm keeping an eye on this little old cottage and took this photo of it last week in the afternoon sun because very soon I think it is to be torn down. The new owners of the site have been building a new home behind it and I will try to photograph it too.

There is just something wistful about this photo - not really sad, but thoughtful - a life well lived and a quiet dignity that can rest in peace...

Thankful that I have a home full of love and laughter.

  3. It seems sad, but sometimes we need to act practically. It's like chopping down a big, sick tree. It's hard, but these things have to be done. Beautiful shot though.
    HAve a great day,
    Andrea

  6. I love this cottage. Looks like it should be pictured on the front of a good book! The gate would be lovely to use as a trellis for climbing roses!

  8. I agree with you. Quiet dignity seems a perfect way to describe this pretty place. It will be a shame to see it go.

  11. What a lovely photo...and what sad news. Maybe you can take a peek inside...so many wonderful things to be salvaged, maybe? Mantels, doors, light fixtures, a claw foot tub? And yes, even the gate! I'd move right in...sigh. Thanks for sharing, it is so pretty.

  14. It's sad that it is going to be torn down. It doesn't look bad. New owners, new ideas, I guess. I love that gate, hopefully it will be used and not thrown out.

  22. I don't think I could be in the demolition business. I love old homes, and all I see is potential and what it might look like with a little (or lot) of TLC. Great photo, by the way!

  23. I agree there is something quite wistful in your image, something sort of dreamy in that soft light. What a shame the house has to go but maybe, just maybe, they will consider retaining the fence. I think I'd really want to retain something from the history of a place.
