Here it is, an abandoned asylum in all its cracking, peeling glory...

My boyfriend and I went exploring a few weeks ago, he took most of the pictures.

This is my favorite:

And these are my other faves of the 100-something pictures we took:

Do you see the spiderweb in this next one?

That's pretty cool.  I love those old buildings and glad they don't have many of them left tho!  I'm laughing at the people cut-outs in the window.  Smiley

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

I didn't know there were fellow Urban Explorers on this site!  Musty old buildings are the best, eh?

Eco-friendly items, patterns, hippies, and more.

I'm on Ravelry, too!

The last picture looks just like the abandoned corridors in this old TB hospital in my city....it's such a creepy place, Waverly Hills.....My favorite pic is the one of the cardboard people though....they look a little insane lol.
