No one puts baby in a corner....

Just a normal farmhouse up a dusty potholed track. I didn't really hold much hope out for this one, but wow was I surprised ๐Ÿ˜Š As I cautiously pushed open the front door I was greeted by, in my eyes the most incredible kitchen, peeling paint, a once grand aga and bits and bobs of lives left behind..


The lower level had small rooms one with a set of bunk beds in, years ago this wasn't so uncommon with large families..


As I headed up stairs the wall paper bowing to me as I made my way across the landing, the first bedroom once ide imagine the parents room, with the cot beside the bed and the wardrobe with suits and dresses still hanging since the day they were neatly put there.


The calender on the dresser holding the date time stood still decades ago.. An old suitcase in the corner with letters and old cheque books thrown around it..


The adjacent bedroom had nothing but everything in it.. 5 or 6 layers of wall paper falling to the floors a radiator hanging on for dear life and photos dotted here and there hiding amongst the decay..

The landing that led to the bathroom was so funky! 1970s wall paper led the way to a small cupboard..


Damp rat eaten boxes filled half the cupboard.. letters tied in twine.. Little trinkets and buttons on trays.. Birthday cards.. telegrams.. Little envelopes with identification books in them.. photos, letters from a soldier on active duty in the war.. a cupboard full of precious memories now forgotten and left to rot..


As I sat there on my cushion of old newspapers I was filled with stories from lovers overseas excitedly awaiting her soldiers leave so they could be reunited again.. black and white photos of families having fun and the reminder of how tough life was with hand made toys and ration books.. Soon it was time to go, I packed up my Flask, dusted myself off and quietly let my self out, leaving behind the beautiful once loved house that nature herself was now reclaiming...

Old documents, just the king of finds! I noted one said Anglesey. I have done several over there but this is not familiar to me, it seems that island is full of these things.

That wallpaper would be cool to look at while tripping hehe...

Avoiding the bloody farmers is a pain over there.. I am not a fan of those species.., 'Beware of the Pigs' - does that sound familiar?

Oh wow, indeed, no one puts a baby in the corner...๐Ÿ˜…

What a beautiful find, and excellent photography! Must be exciting to open that door and find this surprise! I even see some music scores there, among the old photos ๐Ÿ˜„

Welcome to Hive, and enjoy! I wish you a lot of success!!

Hi again @ninjakitten!

I figured I'd shout out and explain the reply you received above from the awesome @hivebuzz team - as today is the first of the month, we are celebrating Hive Power Up Day on the blockchain by staking (aka powering up) liquid Hive. A couple years back, Hive Buzz had the wicked cool idea to offer Power Up Helper to people who power up to other accounts.I had so much fun doing it for the badge that I'm still doing it every month!

So you should now see 11.111 added to the Hive Power in your wallet. It's not much, but I hope it helps you build your account & interact with the community.

If you have any questions about it (or anything else), please feel free to shout out, and happy Hiving! ๐Ÿ˜Š
