No WordPress Challenge – So Read a Book

Now that was a great idea Debbie..  not sure what the suggestion, was then pop along to this link and all will be clear

So just for fun here is my contribution.  An image of a great and genuinely old bookshop in South Wales…..not sure what was more interesting – the outside of the shop or the interior and the shelves of books.

DP Weekly Photo Challenge – Unlikely


Not just unlikely but highly likely to be impossible!

When is a Door not a Door…..when its a Jar. But in this case the door is an architectural fake…. a solid wall painted to look like a door.  In fact it is one of several on this stable block that have been painted to match a couple of real doors.

Just a suggestion and a little bit of fun for this weeks Photo Challenge.

DP Weekly Photo Challenge – SWEET


The Old Sweet Shop, Southwell

Take your pick of ‘Old Fashioned Sweets’ in this very special little Sweet Shop.  I bet that over many generations children have spent a good deal of their pocket money here….and no doubt a good number of BIG KIDS that we call adults have also enjoyed a sweet treat.
