Wednesday Smile

Today I want to share with you one of the little hidden treasures in my neighborhood. So many times, I have driven on the highway and seen this little place tucked away on a little side road. Yesterday I decided to drive off the highway and find this little place. I'm so glad I did, because I truly enjoyed seeing this charming little spot near Level Cross. As I was taking pictures, I saw an elderly gentleman, dressed in overalls, working on another barn a few buildings behind this one. He threw up his hand and waved, so I walked back to where he was, to speak to him. He was Mr. Frazier, the owner of this sweet little building.
Mr. Frazier has several barns and projects to keep him busy. He enjoys collecting old things and recreating old barns as a hobby. Don't you just love his old green truck?

Mr. Frazier was very sweet and invited me to come back "anytime except Sunday" and he would be glad to take me and my family on a tour of his buildings and collections. Sunday is church and family day.


Please click on the picture to enlarge so that you can appreciate the true beauty of Mr. Frazier's hobby. I hope this makes you smile, too.

Wow, this is a great place to go when we are on the way to the mountains some time. I'll send a link to my hubby. He will like it. Sometimes the best things are right up under our noses and we don't even realize it. We're always looking for the big things, when the little things are better.

Very 1950's huh? Sometimes its a very good thing to stop and see what goes on along the way.
I see you are all getting ready for that new baby, I know how exciting that is.

What a wonderful place, it reminds me of home and my Grandfather and Uncles. They all had places like this. Garages and farms, and trucks like that one. Thanks for the memories. I'd be there all the time, just for the memories. Thanks for your sweet comment about my little Dusty. Come back often.
