Farmhouses.

I spent Christmas with my boyfriend in his hometown in rural Saskatchewan, Canada. Needless to say, we made time one afternoon for my favorite pastime...


Edit: Thank you for the lovely comments everyone! 
1. First stop was the only place that wasn't actually a house. It was a one room school built in 1908. Nothing to see inside except snow and pigeon poo.



2. House Number One actually might have been my favorite. I thought it was so beautiful! Also built in 1908.



3. I loved the door in particular.



4. We didn't go inside the one because someone lived at a farm across the road.



5. House Number Two. Built in the same year, but in my opinion, not quite as pretty.



6. House was locked up pretty well but the garage was open.

9. Loved these old skates! 



10. Peeked in through the living room window. On the left is an old sewing machine.



11. House Number Three. I was amazed at how straight and tall this one was. I didn't go near this one because the snow was too deep!

12. House Number Four stood out to me because it was so lonely feeling. There were no animal tracks or anything in the yard.

13. Playing around with the afternoon sun...

15. Loved the details in the stone.

16. Opened the door to peek inside but nothing about it looked safe.

17. House Number Five was tough to get a shot of because of all the trees and bushes around it. I loved the red brick.

19. The back porch door was locked up tight (above this) with recent looking locks...

20. ...and the front door was wide open.

21. There was so much amazing stuff in this house, from the furniture to the lamps to the staircase. I'd have loved to have seen the rest of it, but this picture was the only one I got before we heard something rustling around upstairs. Raccoons are not uncommon in the area so we decided to leave before we faced an angry one.

22. Last but not least, House Number Six. The exterior paint was interesting.

23. This one was really out in the middle of nowhere and the floors looked safe(ish) so we went inside.

24. A livestock book with a 1975 print date.

26. You may have noticed that I like doors...

27. Worn out from too much two steppin'....

28. We didn't chance the upstairs. However it has an open concept layout up there which I found interesting because most of these old places have narrow halls to every bedroom.

30. Just in case you need to light some dynamite.
