Details.....


Just when you thought I was finished with St. George's Cathedral ...!! These are a few detail shots from my visit to 'Roses & Raiment' last weekend. Things have been crazy hectic around here today I haven't had a chance to scratch my.....head!! Quieter day tomorrow and a chance to catch up with everyone. On our way out of the cathedral I spotted this bench with embroidered cushions and immediately thought of Malyss and VP so this is one specially for you.....
A 'cherubic' detail on the stationary font at the entrance to the cathedral.....
and two of the many beautiful stained glass windows around the cathedral.. Cannot believe that the weekend is here once more but am very glad that it is, I hope you have a good one, see you tomorrow..take care and stay safe.....

  6. Es ist schon sehr beeindruckend wie diese Kunst zu so früher Zeit hergestellt wurde, und alles in mühsamer Handarbeit. Das erste Bild zeigt wahres Geschick, einfach klasse...
