November Windows

Time to share the windows we have found to photograph …

This month I have been noticing Shop Windows – this one in my little rural local town

cake shop, meringues

Who would buy those lurid meringues? Would you?

And yum-yum ….. A Splat Cake! ??????

Oh dear.

In contrast how about the window of The Grand, Piccadilly, London.

and this shop at the entrance of the Burlington ArcadeLaduree, shop window

Laduree, which apparently invented the recipe for Macarons.

In contrast again the shops in Bethnal Green Road are a little more earthy

The Green Factory

like The Green Factory,

then turn a corner into Brick Lane and all manner of amazing street art assaults the senses

This is the side window of a leather goods shop.

I look forward to seeing what windows you have found in your part of the world – archive or current, all welcome. Just leave a link in the Comments.

Next Year

I have really enjoyed having one subject to focus on this year, it has made me look at the world from a slightly different perspective, I do hope you have enjoyed it as well.

So, what about next year …. thank you to everyone who has offered suggestions, all wonderful ideas, …… one of my great loves is Textiles and this has gone up a gear since being part of the Stitchbook Collective.

Next year Wild Daffodil’s photographic monthly sharing of photos will turn into

Textile Tuesdays

Still on the first Tuesday of each month, it will be wonderful to see what Textiles you find to photograph.

Whether the textiles are in your own home, something you are working on, or have seen when you are out and about, I’m really quite excited to see what turns up on

Textile Tuesdays 2020

Windows

It is the first Tuesday of the month, time to share some photographs of WINDOWS, our theme for the whole of 2019.

I have to admit it crept up on me this month, as the last few weeks have been busy with grandchildren on their summer holidays – I’m one very happy but very tired Granny!

So I have been dreaming of holidays – and thinking of windows seen on holidays in the past – this one with shutters in a little beach shop on Nevis in the Caribbean in May 2017

Love those colours together.

In contrast, this one seen on a walk to Pickering from Whistle Stop Cottage last Novembercobwebs and ivy

Do you have any window photos to share this month.

All are welcome whether they are current or archive posts – sometimes it is fun to revisit blog posts from a few years ago. To join in you can put a link in the comments of this post anytime until the next month begins on the first Tuesday in October.
