Oh by the way...

You understood the pic in the last post right? It was a stack of 100 (fence) posts; get it? for my 100th post? Yeah I knew you got it, but I was just making sure.

I entered a give away as well as posting one. It is for a charm pack and a pattern book. You might want to check it out here because if you were lucky enough to win mine and then win that one, then you would have a pattern book to help you with your 100 charms. Hope to post a pic of the100 post anniversary prize maybe tomorrow. I have some cutting to do though...
Can I bore you with a few more vacation shots?


Don't you love the character in these old stone and thatch cottages? They seem to hold such a charm and romance about them to me, although I think that the long ago residents may have thought differently.


another lovely Scottish image.


the very charming little village of Grasmere in the English Lake District quite close to where Beatrix Potter spent her summers and where Wordsworth is buried.


"The best portion of a good man's life is his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love". William Wordsworth

Train station in a little village in Wales. This village has the longest name in the world. It means "The church of Mary in the hollow of the white hazel near the fierce whirlpool and the church of Tysilio by the red cave". I'm sure glad I  was not the conductor who had to call out the next stop at this junction.

My maternal grandmother was a Gladstone and my paternal grandmother was a MacGregor so I was always on the look out for those names while touring. Below is one of the times I was not so impressed to see the Gladstone name. (click on the photo to enlarge to see what I mean)



You've heard it said, "Somedays you're the statue, and somedays you're the seagull".
Today I wish you a "statue" kind of a day.
