The Little Red Schoolhouse

We had a full and a wonderful day with friends arriving from Paris, Texas. This was the first day I felt I didn't have time to give as much consideration as I'd like to taking a photo, and, coming through Mahone Bay on the way home, I had Ken stop the car to take a picture of this home...isn't it adorable? Not a very creative photo, but a darling house!


My friend Nelda told me she'd been showing her 365 photos to her son when they just visited him in NYC, so anytime I told her something about our stay up here, she was already a step ahead of me, quoting something I'd written with my pictures. I really get gabby, don't I!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on yesterday's picture and with my buildings in the fog. I want badly to thank each of you, but I know you understand. Sincerely, Thank You...
Congrats on being in the top 20 this week!!!!! Way to go, Louise!

Absolutely perfect!

Another charming photo. Reminds me of watching Little House on the Prairie with it's size and classic charm. I could never imagine going to school in a building that small! I'm glad places like this little gem are still around though!!
posted June 27th, 2010  
This is to good to be true, but I know it is. Beautiful composition.
posted June 27th, 2010  
A wonderful photo! It reminds me too of Little House in the Prairie and Anne of Green Gables.
posted June 27th, 2010  
beautiful photo, i love the red house- its fantastic!!!! i just don't see buildings like that where i live!
posted June 27th, 2010  
Schoolhouse? That's a cute building for a school. I love the red. It reminds me a bit of the Swedish houses.
posted June 27th, 2010  
Wow! Gorgeous. Such a beautiful vivid red and then it's highlighted nicely by the bright red and green chairs.
posted June 27th, 2010  
Of course, you know I meant BLUE and green chairs, doh! :)
posted June 27th, 2010  
Ah, Mahone Bay!! I love this so much. There is so much color in NS I think because winter is so long that they need something to brighten the long cold days.
posted June 27th, 2010  
This is just awesome!!!
posted June 27th, 2010  
Oh my, what a quaint building. :D Made even quainter by the name of the place and the gorgeous colour it's been painted with. :D
posted June 27th, 2010  
Gorgeous little building!
posted June 27th, 2010  
Cute building! I can't imagine teaching in a small school like this, but then again, maybe I would like the freedom that would come with it. Yeah! I think I would.
posted June 27th, 2010  
love it !! i want to visit this place
posted June 27th, 2010  
The red is SO intense I love it. Is it really used as a school?
posted June 27th, 2010  
Love the old scool houses. It looks like beautiful country.
posted June 27th, 2010

Very charming and I love the bright colors in this. Your photos are telling a great summertime story!
posted June 27th, 2010  
This is so neat! I love the colors!
posted June 27th, 2010  
Love the coloured chairs in the front they really give perspective to the size of the barn.
posted June 27th, 2010  
I don't know the history and if it ever was actually a school house, but it's owned and lived in by a family now. I've passed by and seen them szitting out in the yard a time or two...

Thank you for all the nice comments...I just dropped in post "Breakfast Club" and we're on our way out again in a minute. Lovely weather...lovely friends...

l Love your picture of the little red school house, it looks like it should be used as a picture in a childrens book it so cute.
posted June 27th, 2010

Blue and green chairs outside the house....perfect.

thanks, Louise! You put a song in my heart! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♫ ♪ ♬ ♥ ♥ ♥ :)

At first I thought this was really a school! (Did it used to be?) Have fun with your friends and stop apologizing for having a full and happy life! LOL!
posted June 27th, 2010  
It does look like a school. I love that shade of red :).
posted June 27th, 2010  
Oh, this is beautiful! I wish I had been to a school that looked like this instead of some huge big building! Every child everywhere should have stuff like this!
posted June 27th, 2010  
awesome building!!
posted June 27th, 2010  
Lovely building, glad you're enjoying your holiday with your Texan friends.
posted June 27th, 2010  
I love this! Great colours!
posted June 27th, 2010  
OH...isn't this absolutely gorgeous??
I want to live there!
If I can't live in YOUR Luney home, of course! ;-)

Oh...I finally finished the painting I started and posted, a while back!
And thanks for all of the love, Louise!
Have fun with your guests!
Don't worry about replying!
I know! ;-)

I really love this! It's such a sweet little school house and the bright red contrasts so well with the blue and green chairs out in front. :)
posted June 27th, 2010  
i love the color, louise. you say you didn't give that much consideration taking this, but it still turned out beautifully.
posted June 27th, 2010  
Lovely pic Louise, such a great little house, so different to anything around here in the middle of France. 365 is so good in that you can see so many different things from all over the world.
Don't worry about not posting too much, enjoy your holiday with your friends. My family is coming over tomorrow from the UK so I shall not be around much although the camera will be busy taking pics of my little grandson and my big girls!!
posted June 27th, 2010  
I would like that house! Although red is one of those colours that is meant to influence mood? People might start walking past it and feeling terribly mad until they get out of the front yard and have no understanding as to why! :P

I thought i'd add you to watch because I always check your photos when I remember, so this is a lazier way to keep track - having them delivered to me!

Hope you had a good time with your friends! :)

Stunning colors, love the pop of the chairs in front.
posted June 28th, 2010  
Beautiful!

So very charming.
posted June 28th, 2010  
I thoought this would be an old school...not a house!! Did it USED to be an old school? very cute :)
posted June 28th, 2010  
This is so pretty! I love the vivid colors! Not bad at all for a quick grab! ;-)
posted June 28th, 2010  
Nice!
posted June 28th, 2010  
charm to the billionth degree! I'd live in it!
posted June 28th, 2010  
So cute!
posted June 28th, 2010  
That is such a neat house! I love the two seats in front, too! Ha, by the time you leave Lunenburg, we will know it like the back of our hands! Just watch us!
posted June 28th, 2010
