6th Photo

Hello, Dear Ones. I usually don't do tags or games anymore at my blog, but I played this game because I never have played it before and because my sweet friend, Trish, at Homemade Quilts By Granny asked me to. If you've not met Trish, pop on over to visit with her a bit and tell her I sent you!

This photo was from my second post ever and I was traveling around in the olden district of my town showing your pictures of some of the little Victorian homes. I love this house. Just look at those porches - the archedness of the fist floor railings and the crownedness of the second floor porch railings. I'm sure the iron fence is original.

There you have my 6th photo from my beginnings of blogging. Now the rules are to pass this along to 10 friends. I just don't do that any more. But if you want to play, be my guest. It is fun to see what we come up with and how our photography skills have improved. I hope mine has.

Thanks for popping in to see me today and...
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Won't You Be My Neighbor?

It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
A beautiful day for a neighbor.
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?...

It's a neighborly day in this beauty wood,
A neighborly day for a beauty.
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?...

I've always wanted to have a neighbor just like you.
I've always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you.

So, let's make the most of this beautiful day.
Since we're together we might as well say:
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Won't you be my neighbor?
Won't you please,
Won't you please?
Please won't you be my neighbor?
~ sung by Mr. Rogers


  1. Hi Shelia...
    Girl you sure look good as a Grandma...

    What a doll!

    Sweet Up-North Mornings...

  2. That is such a neat house Sheila! I think you do very well with the photography skills!

  3. This game has gone round the world and back, it seems!

  4. Hi Sheila
    The house is so pretty. I will go back to that post and read it sometime. I would be so interested to see your olden district.
    Thanks for your comment about Knaresborough. I actually though of you on the way there when I saw a road sign for Otley. I expect you already know what my next post will be all about. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

  5. I could move right in that home...or maybe just camp out on the pretty porch!


  6. Shelia~ what a charming house. I adore the history that's created within the walls of a home. I still have to take in the thought we've been in our home for over 27 years and counting. Hubs, kitty and I ramble around this old empty house, waiting patiently for it to be filled again.
    Now your walls will be filled with the joys of your precious Chole.

    My son and DIL have a(small)but possible chance of moving back to our area from Seattle. It's difficult for me to travel, so if they were closer it would be wonderful.

    Sweet wishes,

  7. What a beautiful house...I would love to sit out on the deck and have a diet Pepsi and chat the afternoon away with YOU! Come say hi :D

  8. Beautiful house, just my type!....Christine

  9. Oh Shelia
    Do you know that Mrs. Magpie asked me to be her neighbour? She wrote this same note song that you have here.
    I would love to be your neighbour...what a hoot that would be... I know, let's all gather our favourite bloggers and buy the street. OMG wouldn't that be fun??? I've got my thinking cap on don't I?
    Love You
    Love Claudie

  10. Hi Shelia,
    Yes, it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood for sure.

    I'm just loving the picture of you and your grandbaby.


  11. Really this old house is very pretty. I like this kind of house, who not?
    Shelia, you are professional photographer! Your pics are beautiful and show the atmosphere in your beautiful home and family!

  12. Your a sweet heart to do this because I asked..sorry I didn't relize this was something you didn't do.Thank you. Trish

    This is a very nice house...I would love to set on the front porch and visit...drink tea and use one of those olden hand fans...what we use to do at my grannys on sundays.God Bless Trish

  13. Hi Sheila, I wonder what my 6th post was. I have been posting for almost two years. I might just take a look. your photo of the darling home is so lovely. I too love the old homes and love the gingerbread on them as well.

    Happy days to you dear friend.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  14. Morning Shelia,

    I LOVE that home. It is so gorgeous! Of course, I know there are lots of wonderful homes in your area!!! If we EVER manage to go to Houston to get Mom & Dad packed up to come live here I DEFINITELY still want to meet you!!!

  15. Congratulations on your new Granddaughter....she is gorgeous. Now, try and tell me that this is anything better than being a Grandma.

  16. Beautiful porch and house.
    I'm sure your skills have improved as a photographer. I hope mine have.

  17. Could I just have that house? Would love to be sitting so cozy on it and watch it rain. I always admired all yyour photos I think you have a great eye for details. Stella

  18. I think this is a great picture! I love that beautiful house and can see why you wanted to take a photograph of it.

    Hope little Carter is doing well.

    Best wishes for a beautiful weekend,

  19. ahhh, I'd love to be sitting on that pretty porch..
    It is almost 3 in the a.m. and i am not ONE BIT SLEEPY..*sigh

  20. It's a beauiful home and the neighborhood must be a lovely place to take a walk.

  21. Love it! Love you! Out the door in a few!


    Sheila :-)

  22. Good morning Sheila!

    Oh how I adore that lovely home.....isn't it wonderful? Kind of like a wedding cake house..

    And, didn'tcha just love Mr. Rogers? We sing that little song around here once in awhile. He was such a nice man.


  23. Well, at least you had a good pic for your 6th. With my luck it would have been a before shot of the basement! :)
    Have a great weekend...I bet you are yearning to hold that sweet baby!

  24. I've been so behind on reading the past two weeks, but wanted to tell you that the photo of you with your baby granddaughter is just the sweetest! She's so pretty, and so are you.
    I love seeing this old house too. My aunt lives in an old house, and although it's had lots of work, the floors are still a little crooked and there are other quirks, but I just love it. The character of these houses are just wonderful.
    Have a great weekend.

  25. Hi Sheila, Oh that house is simply gorgeous. What memories must have been made within those walls.
    Love the song sung by Mr. Rogers and remember my son watching many years ago and that great song.

    Congrats on your new grandchild. You are a beautiful and young grandmother. Beautiful pic of you all in the bathroom. Love it!

    Thank you for stopping by and your kind words. It is always special when you visit. Have a wonderful weekend.
    Hugs, Celestina Marie

  26. Oh, Shelia, I LOVE the breakfast room.

    This home is gorgeous you present ... Sherry & I visited some divine Victorian this week ... stay tuned!

    Sherry left this AM & now we are off to Ansel's 9th birthday party.

    Have a lovely weekend.
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  27. Hi Sheila, THANKS for the visits to my blog, I sooo enjoy your comments. Your song today brings back such sweet memories of when my youngest boys were little. How we loved Mr. Rogers.

  28. I think you do very well with the photography skills!
