Luverly of the Week: Abandoned Home in Restoule by finder1957


This is a house I always pass by when I am in Restoule to visit family, our ancestral cemetery and other sacred spots. Apparently it was the home of a second cousin, but I only remember it as being dilapidated.

Finder1957 also took a photo of another abandoned home that you pass on the way into Restoule:


I am one already prone to nostalgia and passing these houses always bring that out in me. But I don't mind in the least.

Besides my ancestral lands across the pond, Restoule is certainly where my heart is.

Sláinte!

Amazing! The first one looks like it's being ever so slooowly being sucked back into the forest as it also folds into itself, until one day it just *poof!* disappears! :D

They look like a mirage. Wonderful!

What beautiful houses - they may be old and worn, but they're not unloved by passers-by such as yourself :)
I love those old abandoned houses and always want to go in. Sometimes I do with the ones that are quite rural and have been empty for decades.
It's "trespassing" (heh), and generally quite dangerous >.>, but some of them are so interesting inside having original fixtures and such.
Beautiful!

Beks: Hehe, Nature is still Mistress of that area. :)

Margelaene: I am glad you liked it. :)

Cammie: Sorry about that. I hope you read my post "Blogger Stole 'Em" for an explanation as to what happened.

Medusae: I get that same urge too, especially with old barns! :D

we have an abandoned farm mill and small cabin in the woods near our house where I practice my craft. I will take pictures and post them =3
