Beautiful Biddestone... Part I















Yesterday afternoon, my oldest son went to a birthday party in one of our neighbouring villages, beautiful  Biddestone. Meanwhile, his younger brother and I took a stroll around this gorgeous little English gem... Aaah, this neighbour is easy to love!

I always feel a little uncomfortable taking photos of other people's houses, but I hope the owners don't mind my admiring their beautiful homes through my lens... Something tells me I am probably not the first one (nor the last) to go a little snap-crazy in this village either.

Wishing you a lovely day and thank you SO much for all of your kind, encouraging comments - I really, really appreciate every comment, every word.

Helena

  10. Beautiful photos, Helena - the village looks lovely. We used to live in a lovely old Grade 11 Listed half-timbered house and people often used to take photos - I never minded - I was rather proud! Pouring with rain here!! Abby x

  12. Oh I yearn to live in a village like that. Your photos have done it justice - it looks like heaven to me.

  13. Så vakre bilder:) Jeg er glad du har tatt bilde av andres hus, ellers hadde jeg aldri fått sett de. Du er heldig som omgir deg i så vakre omgivelser:)

  14. Vilken vacker by - har svårt att tänka mig att ägarna misstycker att Du tar bilder på deras hem, pga av att de är vackra!!!

    Man ska inte underskatta detta med barnkalas - kan ge en själv inspiration på många fronter - även om vissa urhäftiga tak kanske inte får en att göra mer än att just beundra - fara hem och snickra om sitt eget låter litet väl, ambitiöst...

    Kram,
    Lena

    Thank you darling for showing these pictures and hungry for more of these:)

  18. Sagolikt vackert Helena! Du bor då alldeles fantastiskt till med såna underbara miljöer runt knuten :-)) Så charmigt med krukorna som står på fönsterbrädan och de stora klippredskapen lutade mot väggen. Lavendelhäcken på muren...... ohhhh..... jag får habegär så det står härliga till. DET är en dröm. Håller faktiskt på att fundera över om jag kan få till något sånt. Hrmm.... Förstår precis vad du menar att det ibland känns lite 'sådär' när man fotar :-) Att man liksom tränger sig på.....

    Här har släpats bräder hela dagen. Äntligen är 'bra-att-ha-brädhögen' borta. Sköööönt..... Dygnet har dock alldeles för få timmar. Hinner inte riktigt med mig.

    Hoppas att du mår bra och har det bra!!

  19. Hejsan Helena, kan instämma i dina beundrande ord om engelska hus och trakter eftersom jag har turen att få besöka England ett par gånger om året pga av att makens dotter bor i London och vi försöker alltid göra en tur bortom storstan och hitta, för oss, nya ställen att besöka. Och visst är det svårt att avstå från att ta bilder på dessa vackra hus som du hittar i din närhet, jag tror nog ägaren uppskattar att andra också fascineras av huset.

    Och som vanligt fascineras jag av dina otroligt vackra och harmoniska foton, som ändå har ett stråk av mystik som jag gillar.

    Tack rara du för dina trevliga och uppskattande ord hos mej, det gör mej så glad. Alltid roligt att läsa dina rader som är personliga och välformulerade.

    Ha det gott i sommaren, kramar Birgitta

  25. Såå fantastiskt vackert, inte konstigt om du (och andra) går i foto-spin ;))
    Här var det mycket vackert att kika på efter mitt blogguppehåll, jag hoppas det är okej att jag lånar din bild på dukning i förra inlägget - behöver massor av inspiration till en speciell dag i juli...
    Ha en fin dag!

  26. Det är helt otroligt att det bor människor i de där vackra husen! Jag har aldrig varit i Storbritannien så du får resfebern att växa med dina bilder...

    Tack också för att du har kikat in hos mig flera gånger, tyvärr kan jag inte erbjuda lika fina omgivningar som du gör här i bloggvärlden! ;-)

    Ha en fin vecka!

  29. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers
    and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  38. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  39. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
    video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why
    throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving
    us something enlightening to read?
