The woods are full of surprises...
But how can we get there?
Let's get closer...
It looks like a house...
"This house that looks to east, to west,
This, dear one, is our home, our rest;
Yonder the stormy sea, and here...
The woods that bring the sunset near.
The wind from out the west is blowing...
...dark grow the pinewoods, dark and drear; The woods that bring the sunset near.
When o'er wide seas the sun declines,
Far off its fading glory shines,
Far off, sublime, and full of fear;
The pinewoods bring the sunset near."
I hope you have enjoyed our walk through the woods! I have mentioned that I do not "do" Halloween, but it did seem like the perfect opportunity to use this old house as a backdrop for a table. This was a guesthouse and sat behind my grandparent's house until it was torn down to make way for a more modern house.
My great grandmother lived there alone until they built an apartment in the new house for her. Let's take a look inside...I had never realized how I love the shade of blue in here. Obviously, it is in a very bad shape and would require a lot of work to renovate. It is filled with doors, windows and trim from the old house.
And other treasures...
I love the intricate detail of a carpenter from a hundred years ago...
Now for the table...
