Windsor Ruins, Port Gibson / Alcorn, Mississippi, U. S. A.

Windsor Ruins, near Port Gibson / Alcorn, Mississippi, U. S. A.

What an awesome experience to stand next to these huge pillars and imagine what it must have been like to live in a home such as this.  The home survived the Civil War by being occupied by the Union Army, just to burn down in 1890 from a carelessly thrown cigarette.

The sky was disappointing the day we were there, but the websites below have some better shots.

Old Courthouse Museum, Vicksburg, Mississippi

We took a short trip to Vicksburg and Natchez, Mississippi in December.  The Old Courthouse Museum in Vicksburg has a lot of history and memorabilia.  Visit if you can.

Happy Birthday, Robert E. Lee

It's cold in Alabama

The weather man down the road from us reported 5 degrees on their farm this morning.
Thought a sunflower might make us feel better.
This lady was 12+ feet tall and that sunflower is almost 2 feet in diameter.

Old Sheldon Church Ruins

Once again, I post something very old and beautiful that is definitely not rubbish.

Old Sheldon Church Ruins, near Beaufort, South Carolina.
I have included the Wikipedia link, but I recommend Googling it as there are several other informative sites about the ruins.

Edsel 2

At car shows my husband looks at muscle cars and I look at Edsels. 
What does that say about me?

I feel guilty when I post a beautifully kept/restored vehicle to Rubbish Tuesday, but hey, it is old.

See more at Rubbish by Roan!

A Barn Collective message

Barn lovers, I'm going to skip The Barn Collective this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday.  I know everyone will be busy and I am two weeks behind on visiting your entries.  
It will return the Sunday night following Thanksgiving.

Thank you for your participation thus far!

Have a great holiday week!

Window rubbish

Hi, everyone.  I am terribly behind as we were able to have a little vacation last week.  We went to Tybee Island, Georgia, and then to Charleston, SC.

This rubbish is not from either of those beautiful places, but I hope to get a few photos from the trip up soon.

Classic fall decor

One of the many beautiful old homes in Franklin, Tennessee, U. S. A.
This was mid-October this year.  Most of our fall color down south comes in November rather than October.
