Becca at “On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea” hosts Sunday Trees each week. One tree determined not to give up!
Hugh’s View & News says: Like you and I, every window can tell a story. Some will show you those stories, while others will only show them to a chosen few. Some won’t reveal their stories to anything in our world.
These are a few pictures I took this past summer when I went back to my childhood home town. They’re very amateurish (which is what my photography is) and taken on the run. I used my iPhone8+.
One of many store fronts found on Main Street. This one happens to be unoccupied. Love the 1890 at the top!
So sad to see our elementary schools fall into complete disrepair. This is Anthony Wayne and I attended here in the sixth grade. It was built in 1931 and our schools depended on open windows and doors for air conditioning! The elementary school I attended from second to fifth grades (Franklin Elementary) has already been torn down and is now a neighborhood park.
Standing in front of the County Courthouse looking up. It’s such a beautiful old structure. So much history. Built in 1876. It is still in use today. This is a view of the second story circular window from the outside.
Sitting in my family’s sun room looking out across a farmer’s field.
After about 15 years of not putting up a Christmas tree (shortly after we acquired three kittens and then continued to add), we decided this year to try with a small tree on a small table. For the most part, it’s working. Of course, this go-around, all the ornaments are shatterproof! This is not a good picture at all as the ceiling light was on and reflecting in the window so the lights, etc., on the tree don’t really show. But, you get the gist. After having the tree up for a few days, I thought we were going to actually pull it off. We came really close as you can see. But he didn’t stay there too long and he didn’t try to do anything to the tree (shocker)!
FROM OUR HOUSE TO YOURS,
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR
And for all of those who may not celebrate Christmas,
