through the window





Sorry.  My apologies.  I haven't used up all my pictures from Kings Landing yet.  Haha

All houses have windows and I've taken many photos of the windows at Kings Landing each time I visit.  I find a new window or a new view through a window to capture.  I like this shuttered window and the old windsor chair in front of it, above.   A good place to knit, crochet, mend, or read with lots of light coming in.

The table in front of this window holds a candle and some nicely knitted mittens ready for the cold winter months ahead.  

This is a dry sink in front of the window with a nice view of a barn and a pretty maple tree outside.

This is the store and I noticed the Union Jack flags in the pitcher in the window.  The barrels contain turnips and beets.  I love the bench.  They make them at Kings Landing and sell them in the Emporium but they are longer than this one.  

This house has running water from an artesian well at it's sink in the attached shed.  I like the flowers on the window sill.  What do you think of the sink and faucet?  Do you see the small building through the window?  That is a rare octagonal shaped outhouse.  Isn't it fancy?

There is also a beautiful view of the St. John River out this window while you do the dishes.

This is the little chapel with it's beautiful stained glass windows.  It was decorated for Thanksgiving that weekend.

Each of the side windows had these beautifully decorated baskets of dried flowers along with gourds and leaves.

Don't you just love the gorgeous colours in this bouquet of flowers?  To me, orange, gold and cobalt blue are a perfect colour combo for fall.


How's your week going?  Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day!

Blessings,
Pam

  3. I love sitting next to a window and I guess people have always loved it...lots of natural light, too. Aren't the mittens or socks in the stack neat. Enjoy your day! Hugs, Diane

  4. Yes, those colors perfectly echo the vivid, deep blue October skies with the trees in full color. Course it's pretty much gone by now...though there are still a few colorful trees here and there. I am very intrigued by the white taper standing on the saucer...how clever! Looks so charming and it would be easy to do.

  10. I know all those windows. Once, on a cold day, we went into the church, where a lady was playing that organ, and you could see her breath as she sang. She didn't know we had come in and jumped when she saw us. She was playing "The Willow Tree." It was very pretty on the pump organ.

  14. Beautiful windows, Pamela - I love windows with small panes - they remind me of New England and my childhood. I love the first photo of the chair by the window and all the beautiful flower arrangements. Yes, cobalt and bright orange are very lovely together. Lovely scenes today. xo Karen

  23. These are wonderful window scenes, Pamela. I love the way the church is decorated for fall, and that they put flowers in the house, too - makes it seem more alive. I enjoy seeing how people lived way back when, but I'm so glad I don't have to use that octagonal outhouse!

  24. That is just beautiful. Love that window with the chair nearby. I've become so spoiled by the amount of light available to me. My very earliest memories are of a house we lived in that had a pump at the kitchen sink! I enjoyed these photos! What a wonderful view of the river.

  26. I never get tired of seeing your windows and beautiful pictures. Yes, i see the outhouse, fancy. The faucet is original for sure and the wooden sink. Lovely window dressings, I so have always admired guards and the wonderful colour and shadows they provide for picture taking. Have you run out of pictures from King's Landing, lol Take care, we are at a stand still in Red Deer as the fog is to thick to move

  28. I know that window photos are not always easy to take, but you did a wonderful job handling the light to dark aspects, Pamela I like the autumn decorated window, and the rustic, country appearance eof the others. The little chapel was charming!
