Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge : Metal and Wood

Window on the world

Window on the world

We came across this quaint traditonal old farmhouse near Kenmare, Co Kerry, that has been renovated to the style of the 50s,  and we enjoyed a cuppa and pastry in this room.   On the window along with the teapot and candlestick is what looks like an old meat safe, which would have been used for storage of perishables, and placed in the coldest part of the house.   I think the picture fits perfectly with Cee’s challenge for this week.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge : Weathered Wood

The wooden shutters and balcony on this house have been given a little Tender Loving Care to spruce them up, in contrast to the house below, which has been neglected and left unloved.

Sunday Stills : The Colour Brown

I came across this lovely tree house at the weekend, it fits very well for the  ‘Brown’ challenge, though I am sure in another week or so the leaves will be on the trees, and then it will be more suitable for a ‘green’ challenge.

Wood : Ailsa’s Travel Theme

Sometimes, we can’t see the wood for the trees, and get caught up in the small things in life when we should see the bigger picture.   These pictures show a little bit of both, so there is a bit of balance in my life!

These wooden sculptures are some of my most treasured carvings, which I bought many years ago, they are all hand carved from one piece of wood, by a very clever man, who used to live in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.  Each piece is an original, and they give great pleasure to look at and to hold.
