About MDWRIGGS Photography

So many people ask me what the heck is an MDWRIGGS. So, I will give you a small breakdown so you can see how it came to be. Not that it matters, not that you are asking but I need SOMETHING to write in this section and so this is it. M is for Michelle :) Simple enough right? D is for my maiden name *unimportant really* WRIGGS is just a short nickname from my married last name. Those who know me will appreciate the shortened version because its a fun tricky last name to say and spell :) Thats it, there you have it.

A piece of the past | Here today, Gone tomorrow

Monday, July 28th, 2014

This is a farmhouse.  Built in the late 1800′s and sold to my aunt and uncle in 1980.  I remember being a young child, maybe about 12 years old.  I remember visiting my aunt and uncle and being intrigued by this house.  Somewhere between when I was 12 and now (never ask a lady her age, lol) they moved from this house and built another house on the same property but this old house remained the same.  A piece of furniture on the old farm.  A favourite rocking chair if you will, that maybe no one uses anymore but everyone has to stop and give a try.  OK, maybe not everyone, but I sure did/do :)

There are pieces of this house that I remember all too well.  Which says a lot because I was just a little girl and we only use to come visit once every year or two.  It wasn’t until 2005 that I moved here and began to see the old farmhouse more often.  I remember the cow skull my aunt kept at the front door, lol.  Strange but true. I just assume its what you do in the country :)

I remember the kitchen.  I remember where the kitchen table sat and I even have images of my aunt cooking up something in the kitchen.  I remember the cold storage room, I remember the wood beams in the living room. I also remember the large gaping hole between the upstairs and the living room that we as kids were told NEVER to play near.  (FYI, its still there)

I remember the old wooden steps up to the upstairs, the bedrooms, one in pink and one in blue.  Oddly, I do not recall the bathroom, lol.  This made me chuckle today as I walked through what was once a family home.

Dawn dragged me down (flip flops mind you) into the basement.  Not something I anticipate doing again any time soon.  I’m not sure what freaked me out more.  The mouse that scurried across the floor or the spider I was convinced ran up my sleeve.  In hindsight, I am happy I didn’t drop my camera.  I believe I may have been mistaken, lol.  I think it was a string from my sweater :)

Things about the property in general have changed a lot.  I remember a chicken coop in the back of the house.  There is also now more modern buildings, but in all this time the one constant has always been the old farmhouse.

A farmhouse that will slowly over the next couple of weeks, come down.

I plan to document it here.
