My love and admiration of antique and vintage memorabilia is exponentially increased by the wonders of our forefathers' talents and accomplishments.  Occasionally, I just have to stop and ask myself,

How did they create such beauty with the
most basic of instruments and equipment?

"How were you good today?"

"I shared beauty."


  1. I find that the architecture of Europe is so much more appealing to the eye. I guess the U. S. just hasn't caught up yet with the importance of design.

  2. Such beauty - and built to stand for centuries. Thank you for sharing.

  3. What beauty! I would love to visit some of these places in person but for now, your pictures have taken me on a vacation.

  4. Amazingly beautiful! One stone at a time.....xo Karen

  5. I hope 2014 proves to be a good year for you and yours.

  6. And also the Mont Saint-Michel :
    Have a nice friday
