Carriage Hill

My daughter and I took a daytrip to Carriage Hill Metro Park.  Carriage Hill is a historical farm dating back to the 1880’s.  They have livestock and wonderfully restored buildings.  On the weekends there are demonstrations about life on the farm in the 1880’s.  

We enjoyed wandering around the farm making discoveries around every corner.  

The chickens were not in the chicken coop.  My daughter was chasing the chickens in the field to get a good picture of them with her phone.  Later she used few apps to finish up the photo.  Hmm… I wonder where she got that from?

I love doors and windows.   When I see an old, beautiful in it’s own way, window or door, I have to take it’s picture.  I may have gone overboard...  No, I don’t think there is such a thing as too many pictures, is there?

School starts on August 13th. That is next week.  I can’t believe it!  The summer has flown by…  

We are going on one last little summer adventure Friday, the 127 Corridor Sale also known as the World’s Largest Yard Sale.  The sale stretches from Michigan to Alabama.  We are not shopping the entire route, just a portion.   Next week I hope to have a few Friday Finds to tell you about.

Today I am joining Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday.  My images today are all textured with Kim’s texture ‘teatime’.  

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
Have a great week!

  3. Oh these are wonderful, great light, love the single bowl and the old buildings. Fun stuff.

  5. So nice you and your daughter had a great time, Michelle, it looks like a wonderful place !
    Beautiful photos, love old doors and windows too ...

  6. Hi Michelle,
    yes you are right: Summer has flown by.
    But you had a great time with your daughter I see.
    I love windows and doors too and cant wait to take pictures when I see one.
    The red chicken coop looks great also the second picture...so calming.
    Thanks for showing.
    Have a nice august week,

  7. Love the red of the chicken coop.

  8. What a wonderful place to explore! I love the the bowl on the table, and all its simplicity, the wood and the light. A friend of mine goes on that long yard sale, starting in Indiana and south. I hope you find some great pieces!! Are you taking a large van or something to haul things? :-)

  9. Beautiful photos Michelle. I too am a big fan on windows and doors. I always see a story in them, kind of like windows to the soul I guess. Enjoy the yard sale, that is on my bucket list to do someday. School starts so early, and I thought college was bad. Mallory has a couple weeks yet, thank goodness, since she won't be home until this weekend after being gone all summer.

  10. Wonderful photos, I LOVE the bowl by the window shot !

  11. Beautiful series of photos. My favorite is the first one. I love that magnificent tree with its curve bringing your eye to the cow.

  12. It looks like a wonderful place! Glad you had a great time with your daughter. :)
