ABANDONED....

How eerily beautiful is this abandoned building not far from my home.  I have been wanting to take photos there but I was too afraid to go by myself.  I was with my husband who shot these for me on our Friday together.  We were out running some errands and since I had my camera and I am usually dressed, I asked him to drive around back for privacy.  There are some empty plates back there that the stray cats eat from...you know I was looking for them.  No luck.  I think there may be squatters living in this building with such easy access through the broken windows.  I would love to throw a huge haunted Halloween party in there....how cool would that be?  I would want to scare the pants off the guest though.

Today I wore a simple Ann Taylor thrifted skirt, my new snake skin flats and added my vintage shoe clips, a nude shirt that I found on clearance at Marshall's and a vintage necklace that I scored at the flea.   A simple side braid in my hair was just perfect since the humidity is slowly creeping back.  I hope it stays cooler as my hot flashes are getting worse.  Wait until you experience them..it's fun when all of a sudden your body feels like someone lit it on fire and you have to rip your clothes off and and stand in front of the air conditioning unit.  We put a portable unit in our bedroom to amp up the air.  The ceilings are high and it takes a lot of central air to cool the room.  But yeah, I always make my bra the first or second thing that comes off.  I have really come to strongly dislike bras, especially in the summer.  We all have our issues!!!  Don't come to my door without calling first because you may get an eyeful if I answer the door without my bra!!!!  Actually I won't answer the door without one on so if you are going to visit, you better call first or you will be ringing and knocking until I put one on, if I know you.  Here is a post about my bra situation from the past just click here.  Have a great night darlings...Dawn xo

You are so funny! It always makes me sad when I see old beautiful houses abandoned. I just want to love them and make them better.
That's what we did with our cabin. It was a sorry site and now just as cute as it can be with flowers and wind chimes and FUN written all over it. Maybe I'll do a post on it someday. Probably in the winter when I am missing the little place and the flowers so badly.
You look great as usual. I do like your shoe purchases from the other day.
Hope you have a great holiday weekend!
