the UK . . . all I could see were shapes


I've been in England and Scotland this week.  All I could see were shapes 

Chevrons?










Does this one look familiar? sooooo cool.











Gates are my weakness. . .





gates and ironware . . . totally addicted.



everywhere there was a big lawn, croquet was set up.







The Cotwolds. . . the bricks on their homes looked like gold.




Do you see a beautiful house? 

 I see a wall with a patch work of rectangles with a nice design for the border.  I see sashing around the windows, triangles, squares, shadows, straight lines, long lines, thin lines and circular lines for contrast.  Oh!  AND there IS a beautiful house :)





the slate roofs are "boss", as my nephew would say . . .



and color?  just look at the color!!!  It all looks good together.  


















Isn't this old wood desk the coolest ever?  It's actually from the school that William Woodsworth attended several hundred years ago.
