On a Thursday


A bit of loveliness and sunshine for your Thursday.

Isn't this an inviting exterior? I love the gates, pathway, sheltering, arch-like trees, true shutters, and a very friendly and fresh façade..."All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons inside that space" Philip Johnson

  4. Wow, my eyes just popped open when I saw that beautiful courtyard. I'm all over that arched tree and the vine (although I think it would be a lot of work keeping it trimmed), and the gorgeous facade. Just what a plain old Thursday needs.
