That first one will take some extra skilled fixing upping.

That house is beautiful! A perfect setting for The Ballad of the Sad Cafe.

The first photo makes me think of my Mom "You need another shirt like you need a hole in the head!".

That store front was probably quite the sensation in it's day.

PS - did you ever seen the PBS special on abandoned/decaying Iowa farmhouses? It was beautiful. Much of my childhood was spent exploring them.

Even with the hole in its head, I would vote for the head over Michelle Bachman.

I agree with Kirby. That house is beautiful.

Yes, beautiful decay. Strangely comforting! No idea why that should be.
