Goodbye Old Shed


A bit of a sad post as I say goodbye to a shed . It's not just any old shed it has been next door to me at my in-laws and I have looked fondly at it for a long time . The shed is very old , probably over 50 years and has lovely tree trucks inside for supporting the roof and walls . Some may feel it is a bit of an eyesore and it certainly has some safety issues but I love that this shed has such character and sense of history . It will be coming down in the next day or so and my studio looks directly at it . I think the day it comes down I will leave the curtains closed .

I am glad someone else finds sentiment and beauty in these lovely old weather and age beaten sheds...We have some beauties aroundwhere we live and I always think I should take pics because they too will probley not always be around.
It is a good picture to remind you of your old friend
