  1. It is truly amazing how the old stone cutters would carve such beauty with only handmade drawings.

  4. Great images - we have a lot of Georgian doorways in Edinburgh too. Cobh Cathedral must be amazing inside, judging by the doorway alone!

  6. Hi Jill, and Jo, and Carol,

    Thanks so much for your comments; I really appreciate them!

    Hope you're enjoying the Scottish Census Jo! Cobh Cathedral is magnificent inside and out. Maybe I'll post it next Wednesday.

    Cheery Be!

  7. What a great post! From such a simple theme, 'This way in', you provide a terrific, wonderfully creative selection of images, so very diverse both in locations and forms. Three minutes of viewing has made me feel as if I just experienced an amazing tour of Ireland.

  8. OK, Jennifer, make that read

    GREAT POST!! Not posy!

    It may be flowery, as in a posy/posie/posey flower, but, that is not what I meant

    OR Was it????
