There's just something . . . about going home


Farm fresh eggs

I love this birdhouse

Corn in Hico

I call this Rusty Flower


I love this little house in Puryear, Tn.  My favorite is the yellow door.

I love going home.  There's just nothing like it.  Even the word "home" evokes thoughts and memories of a time spent playing outside from daylight 'til dark.

I remember one summer, when my sister and I were about 4 and 6, we decided to dig to China.  We got mom's silver spoons and commenced to digging in the back yard.  We didn't get very far.

One of my favorite memories was spent under Grandmother and Granddaddy's Catalpa tree eating watermelon.

What a unique house! Who says you can’t use a door for a gate? Well, not this house owner! Whoever owns this house has a unique and unconventional design in mind!

A door used as a gate was awesome indeed! :') People may consider it as good inspiration when it comes to beautifying their house. What do you think? It really depends on the homeowner’s preference. If you think that this certain thing will make your house stand out, feel free to use it.
