It is Texture Tuesday once again, and I'm sharing more from my archives. These photos were taken in October when my dad and I visited his old birthplace in Pleasant Shade, TN. The property owners of this church were gracious enough to let us inside and I was able to get some nice photographs. For the image above, I used Kim's "Embrace" texture.
I was able to find some history on this old church and about the Sanderson family in particular. It is interesting to consider the history of a place and imagine the people who lived there. I'm always struck by the fact that it seems so long ago and yet, it really wasn't. When I think of the advances we've made in such a relatively short time, it sort of boggles my mind. We have much to be grateful for in these times.
The seats in the long pews that you see above were made of a single solid piece of lumber.
Mr. Sanderson was, among other things, a cabinet maker. He was also an elder in this church. I wonder if he built the pulpit and the rail around it.
I'm in a bit of a rush this morning, as my writer's group took up my blog writing time last night. It was great though. Stay tuned for more details.
Have a great day!
