There are times when I feel simply overwhelmed by the creativity of others. Thus was the case here, my husband is used to my hollering “stop the car, stop the car” and having to pull over turn around and bring me back to the “whatever” that brought on this outburst. I was totally taken by this building, it was once an antique car lot. The detail, the whimsical character of the architecture. I would have loved to have met the previous owner.
See the tie man!! I loved, loved, loved it. I toured around the building, as much as I could without being an intruder.
The second floor balconies made me itch with curiosity. Wanting a ladder or access to the inside to I could get closer.. I’ll post a shot from the road, so you can see what I first saw.
Like HELLO.. how could I just drive by and not get a closer look. It was on getting closer that I saw all the details, and the charming way the owner had put character into the building.
This is what life is. Think about it. How often do you meet someone, or see someone and think, how interesting, I wonder?? But, we never follow through, we never take that chance .. we are polite, and go about our business. I was blessed that in growing up, I was encouraged to meet and greet the world in a positive light.
Not only in old abandoned buildings and lost,left behind vehicles do I see beauty and wonder. I see it in my fellow-man.

There will be more pictures of this house, (Norm’s “Thursday Doors” ) but before I sign off, please let me show you the car that was left behind. It was being textured by Mother Nature, she was looking “some” good…=^_^=
Beauty if in the eye of the beholder, isn’t it ….
For those of you who love “rust detailing” and the different patina that Mother Nature can bestow on metal
this car is showing a lot of promise
