Just a few more backroad pics.......

Any picker would brake for this sight on the road! It's a 160 year old house/antiques shop in Cave Spring, GA. Not great pickin' as it turned out--you just never know......but the architectural features were awesome.


I don't know why corbels are so fascinating.....the craftsmanship and creativity of the woodworker makes these amazing works of art. I wish I knew how they did this with basic tools, which makes me think: could I do this with my humble little hand jigsaw, files, etc? Maybe, if I had a week to spend on each........our lives now spin on a faster scale, so it would never pay.

Everything looks like it was custom made to fit!

When I see wonderful places like that, I often wonder if the people living there realize what they have, if they appreciate the workmanship in the details. Sad that many of these old homes are going away... great that many of us appreciate them and are trying to salvage the pieces!~Jacque
