Beauty in Unlikely Places, Flaneur

Beautiful (Old?) WIndow

I usually find more visual interest in old things.  It’s no secret that I {heart} decay.

To be truthful, I don’t know how old these windows are.  I was drawn in by the lines and the colors, and since I was in downtown Grapevine, I just assumed they were as old as the area claims to be, which is a little over 100 years old.  Another thing that leads me to believe that they are old is that when I tried to “straighten” lines, the lines refused to be straightened.  To me, this means that the window (and/or the building it’s attached to) has settled over time.

Aged things hold mysteries, and my natural curiosity is drawn to that.

    1. You have me at a disadvantage with aged things living in Scotland 🙂
      BUT – my maiden name is Ferguson and I married a Glasgow, so I’m destined to explore Scotland someday. Sooner rather than later, hopefully 🙂

      1. Not IN Glasgow (I wish!!!) but my husband’s surname is Glasgow. They intermarried with MacInturfs last generation. We are trying to follow the family tree but aren’t having much luck…

      2. We have some Glasgows in our family, my Granny’s sister married Harry Glasgow, so there is now a line of Glasgows living in Plockton!
        Sorry for the misunderstanding, but I still think you are an honorary Scot!!
