Gorgeous photos!

The window shot is my favourite. What's with the yellow and red patterned plaque on the wooden building?

I love the window. In fact, I love it so much that I'm thinking of doing something similar to my kitchen window at least. Everything in my house is tidy and there are many bare surfaces; I hate housework and want to keep dusting and cleaning to an absolute minimum, but when it happens at the cost of a bit of colour, then maybe I'm overdoing it.

I also love deliberate typos. I hadn't heard the quote that way round!

Glad to see the quilt block up. Have you formed an organized trail in Madison County?

Kath said...

Love the assorted animals waiting to go 'owwwt' on the window.

Martin -- that's what they call a barn quilt Many communities encourage people to put these on their barns or on public buildings. They become a bit of a tourist attraction and often there are maps posted so an inquisitive rambler can travel about the area, viewing all the 'barn quilts.'

The kitchen window is double-glazed and faces south. Over the years it has gotten cloudy, alas -- it's not as dirty as it looks. And it's a wonderful spot for rooting cuttings.

Jim, I believe there is one. We're not on it -- none of our barns are visible from the road and besides, we don't have a barn quilt, though I keep threatening to make one.

Oh I love your window....!

Love them all-but especially the one of the window-such a homey feel to it.

Brenda said...

Well, there it is! I agree, the window photo is charming.

Love the window picture. Your arrangements remind me of my Grandma's windowsills. She always had a bit of this and that, and pretty bottles and always a plant start or two growing.

Ali Ali sure is a pretty boy.
