Abandoned



















Abandoned 

Left Behind

These photos were taken a few weeks ago while on a walk, exploring in the woods.
It was a pretty afternoon filled with adventure and anticipation.
After a week of steady rain and too much time to think....
they seem a bit sad now...
Thank goodness the sun is supposed to shine today
 and throughout this weekend!

Hope you have some fun things planned!
:)

What lovely photos! Couldn't you just spend hours going through all of the vintage goodness in there. Do you know who the owner is?
We need rain so badly! Be careful what you wish for, right? I am sick of the sun shining day after day without moisture but how lucky I am to be dry without floods!

It is always moving to see abandoned lodgings. It makes me wonder who lived in it and I start imagining stories.

Don't you wonder who lived there? Think of all the great things you could do with the old wood and those wonderful windows. My favortie picture is the wood with the nail and moss. So interesting. Glad you are getting sunshine!!

Wonder why the jars were sitting on their tops? Wonder what they did with that big ladder, which, by the way would make a lovely thing to hang old linens on....S0 many things to wonder about. I had to look twice at this post!

Hi Laura

Such an interesting find. Places like that make you wonder who lived there, when and why they left. We have a barn opposite our house which has been left empty for decades. I plan on posting about it soon. I love it as it is but part of me also wonders how long it will stay up for...
Have a lovely weekend!

Lovely. I wonder what joy went on inside against the pretty aqua blue walls. SEa Witch

Looking at those jars I imagine the place may have been used by moonshiners!

Hi Laura, we finally had a sunny day here in Massachusetts.
So sad to see a building falling down, though I love the patinas and textures. I love the bright turquoise inside the building and that jar thingy.
The ladder on the tree reminds me that I want to claim Dad's old wooden ladder before it falls to pieces.
I'm looking forward to exploring the woods around here in the Fall-my most favorite season.
Enjoy!
Sherry

I'm always excited when I discover places like that hidden in the woods. My curious mind begins to concoct the history of the place and the owners. But...I'm also struck with a bit of remorse, when I witness the effects of "abandonment."

Glad you now have sunshine. ;)

Have a blessed weekend!

I can only imagine the history that cabin has... who lived there? when was it built? Love the rustic ladder!

Evi said...

looks downright spooky.....could scare me.
At the other it is interesting how Mother Nature claims everything.
XOXO, Evi

Good Morning Laura:
Just getting caught up after my trip to England. As for all of that moss found on that 'abandoned retreat', it did show that life still does go on in some form anyway. I was so taken with all of the moss covered stones and fences in the English countryside. Discoveries are exciting and your photos were wonderful!

Wonderful photos and it makes me wonder who lived there and why it was left behind. I am imagining that it was once quite charming. Love that window!!

Hugs,

Vintage Home said...

wow I wonder what the cabin was used for??..a home?...I would love to see all the things that could be made with the reclaimed wood...befor it is truly gone ...The picture in the window of the jars is my favorite as It looks like someone just left after washing he dishes!....

Vintage Home said...

...and the blue bench...wow I always wonder how that colour became so used years ago and is now one of the most popular of our time!
