Weekend windows

**Edit**
A wee list of where the photos were taken:
1. The toilet cubicle at Anne Hathaway's Cottage in Stratford upon Avon (good light does not discriminate)
2. St. Conan's Kirk
3. Stirling Castle
4. St. Michael's Church in Linlithgow
5. Lauriston Castle
6. A hotel near Skeabost, Isle of Skye
7. an old shop in Edinburgh somewhere (can't remember)
8. Anne Hathaway's cottage (the cottage itself, not the toilet)
9. Crammond Island

If I weren't already convinced that you live in the most beautiful of places, you have to go and pull out the rainbows. Also extraordinary!

All your pics are gorgeous. But your banner is breathtaking. I saw it and immediately smiled and a little "oh!" escaped my lips.

what lovely windows, the top one is my favourite I think - all those leaves trying to get in! I love your new header too!

What lovely windows! I especially like the second one, the stained glass figure--where did you take it? And who is it? He doesn't look like your typical saint, is he a knight?

Travis Erwin said...

Thanks for the window into you world.

LDWatkins said...

Beautiful stained glass windows. Wow!!

I wonder if our outlook on life varies depending on what kind of window from which we view it.

I think # 7 might be an old shop in St. Stephen's Street - I grew up in Edinburgh and live in Vermont now - I've looked at that window many a time.

Madame DeFarge said...

Great photos. Now racking my brains as to where that shop might be.

I would love to have breakfast in that glass dining room! Esp. if it was cold and windy outside and I had a cup of good coffee or hot chocolate. Lovely detailed photos!

PurestGreen said...

Oh - the shop is on St. Stephen's Street - I remember now. Near Mr. Purves. Thanks, Shona!

Lille Diane said...

Thank you for taking me somewhere I've never been before. How cool is that???

Indeed, good light does not discriminate...one must take it where one finds it, whether dunghill or rose garden.

Lovely...
