home sweet home



This is a typical rural farmhouse. What makes it unusual is that interesting combination of standard windows and plastic that have been cobbled together to enclose the front porch.

Living out in the country helps you develop the habit of using what is at hand.

Use it up
Wear it out
Make it do
Do without.

Somehow this photo reminds me of the vulnerability of these homes, standing alone in the open as tornado season fast approaches.

Well, this is a clever solution to a need. What I thought you were directing us to see, though, was that odd little window on the second floor. I'll bet that throws the look of the whole house out of balance.

Yes it does, and I am positive it's not original to the house.

What a wonderful blog! I love all the pictures. I enjoy reading the details that tell the story behind them. Super work! Thanks for sharing. I'm curious as to what camera and lens you use?

Reminds me of country life and that is such a great thing to be reminded of.
