A visit to Found Around / Fred's World

On a recent trip to the Hill Country we had a chance to visit Andy and Susan of Found Around. They shared their family and 10 acres of Freds World, where they are turning a former Army warehouse into a home. My camera battery died, so I had to take these shots of the area with my cell phone.









An Outside Living area of Fred's World



















More room outside!!
















This is the Bucket tree a hill country exclusive




























This is going to be a table someday. Andy has the eye of an artist, the dreams of a cowboy, and the skills and abiltiies for both. Susan is supportive of their dreams, and Andy too.
















This represents what happens in the Hill Country for stuff that stays a little too long. It is a metal vulture at the trough.










This is Andy and Susan's grand baby who won a blue ribbon for best cow at the Halloween Carnival that was held in town.















I look forward to more road trips, hearing from you, and seeing more of this grow.

I gotta admit that this is one of the very best blogs of the kind I've ever visited yet.
Congrats! Take these words like a blossom blessing as I'm bloging around and,
if you do drop by, at least blogbang me by watching cool french creativities at the left of my page.
Scratch my back and I'll scratch yours.

Great blog, I enjoyed it very much. Your pictures are great. I am from North Texas and we have some of those metal birds around here. None displayed as well though. Keep up the good work.

Loved it when you said, "Andy has the eye of an artist, the dreams of a cowboy, and the skills and abiltiies for both."

Rene,so good to meet you and spend some time visiting. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Love the idea of re-purposing a building into a home. I'd love to have a barn...the ones in PA are built with stone, so cool. Blessings. Peg

Rene, I didn't get your e-mail photos of "God"! I tried to e-mail you and it was returned. Please call me when you're not working. There's an estate sale in Thorndale Saturday 15th. Susan
