~Close Up~

I seem to be drawn to ornate architectural elements these days. The flood of excitement I feel when I see that "special something" in the distance, whether at a flea market or the local thrift store. Since my trusty camera seems to be missing from its post (I bet my oldest has snatched it to take some Friday night pics of her friends), I will post some photos of close-ups of some of my special goodies. Enjoy......


  1. Great pics! I love the little details in architecture too:)

  2. I love ornamental architecture too. I have taken some great photos of old buildings with tons of architecture & always find it so interesting. Have you noticed the work on the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas? I took some photos before Christmas & just never have gotten them posted. Thanks for the reminder! I also shop at Lone Star Antique Mall, & make pillows like the ones shown on your banner. Isn't the world a small place! Do you know Dorothy at Lone Star? I would love to meet you sometime when you go there. Maybe we could have lunch. Always fun to meet fellow bloggers.

  3. I, too, love the details... So many times we tend to be so busy we overlook them!! Thanks for sharing!
