This Post for Mel and her Nanna

Yesterday, Mel left me a comment and told me her Nanna was born in Keswick -- wistfully wondering if perhaps I'd walked by her Nanna's home. I wonder, too. All photos below are from Keswick. You could stay here if you wished -- it's one of Kate's favorite buildings, just the look of it. Inviting walkways. Signs with personality, huh? James Bond Museum? Not so much ... but the pencil museum, that would've been FUN! My love, Ciera, has a box of pencils from here. I love light fixtures and sconces almost as much as I love stone. Window border like lace! Isn't this a photogenic little facade? My Lovely Mother took a photo of this very building on her trip last year - I was happy to meet it in person! Looking over a gate between two buildings -- ever since traveling to Italy, I seek out laundry shots! The only place I saw any of these: WELLIES, BABEEE!!! Red poste boxes ... Kate, holding Luke, heads up the street.

What a kind thing for you to do, to make it possible for someone who follows you to see some of their 'roots' thanks to your images! You really are a doll!

Oh, and I napped the red and white building, but at least I'm being honest and told you!

Her birth-house is now a holiday cottage...my great-grandfather and his brother built it themselves...

Thank you so very much for this....
