German Farmhouse

And now for something completely different...

Built in 1787

This is an old North German farmhouse, built in 1787. Taken in the state of Lower Saxony {Niedersachsen}. It's rather typical for the area and there are many of these old houses in the exact same impeccible state of upkeep. It's amazing when you think what they have seen in terms in terms of history. =)

Another beautiful home, Hacienda-style, or Spanish style as they call it here in California. So inviting to me.

So...when I grew up in Brentford, South West London. The local park is called Boston Manor, and has a motorway running through, (right through the 'nature walk' infact). Anyway, near the canal there has always been a section where gypsies live (i hope thats the pc word to use). My good friend and neighbour and i were going through the park taking photographs...and we stumbeled upon the gypsies camp. caravans and tables and no people. it looked completly abandoned. anyway, we decided to go epxlore.. but the whole time we were crapping ourselves with fear. we climbed over and snuck about... thn noticed that on the picnic table there was a small glass, with a freshly cut daffodil inside. of course i freaked out, becuase this meant someone must be living here.. and i didnt feel in the mood to get glasses/shouted at/shanked. Toni and I freaked out and started to tiptoe out.. then suddenly this horrendous beast rearer its ugly head at us and we legged it. i actually thought it was ome sort of monster beast! t was just a goat with long fur, and big horns... but still very scary.
Anyway I lost that roll of film, GUTTED, the place was amazing. it also had life size toy skelington hung from a tree! gutted.
I think they are actually building a house there now.. despite it being in the middle of the park/nature walk!





feel free to add my journal. ots of pretty photos of interiors/exteriors

My friend just sent me pictures of the holiday home she's staying in in Turkey. I liked it and thought of this community so I'm sharing.
I really like the mountain views and the balconies.

gutted




I wish I had not only the money to buy a beach hut, but the money to be able to take time off from real-life to retreat to it for a while.

The weather is rubbish today, so I will not be going to the local beach (which is hutless, full of litter.. and stoney.. not sandy... )
