AwEsoMe ChiPPy-WHiTe Window Sighting!!!


A Break From the DEEP-FREEZE
Had Me On-The-Hunt,
driving the backroads of Wisconsin...

The Real Deal!*!*!
ViNtaGe Cathedral Window Drive-By SiGHtiNg...
LoVe the FRAME & ALL!*!*!



I love driving through these 
"sleepy little towns in Wisconsin"
Fab Old Mill - Ready to "Collapse"...
I couldn't figure out what the signage was about...
I'm most certain if they were "OLD SIGNS" -
More Patina would be evident, &
they would be LONG-GONE by now...
