OK, back to Leesburg. . . .
On the grounds of the Old Lucketts Store you’ll find things like these sherbet-colored Adirondack chairs.
Next to the Adirondacks you’ll find a charming place called the Beekeeper’s Cottage. Yet another space filled with wonderful things. It was crowded when we were there, so no shots of the interior.
Also on the grounds, a pastel yellow shed.
Not sure if the shed itself is for sale or not, but I liked the colors.
Remember the Crybaby Antiques sign from Part II? Here’s the space to go with it:
Once again, a melancholy band uniform. Something about the way the hat hangs.
Another mystery shed. I do like the prisms and flares caused by the sun hitting the stained glass.
You can see the rustic ambience* of the place in the setting sun here:
I wanna’ go back.
*According to grammarist.com, “ambiance is the French word from which the English word is derived, and ‘ambience’ is an anglicization. But in fact, the anglicized word has been in English longer and was well established long before the French spelling entered English as a vogue word in the 20th century. So it makes sense that ambience is more common. It’s been an English word longer.”
Now I understand why people spell it both ways. Was kind of driving me nuts. 🙂
Love the photos. Everything looks so quaint.
Thanks. It really is a lovely place.
Thanks for the photos, Carole…..it would be quite interesting to go “exploring” in all of these places……..maybe some day……..Shelley
I hope you do, Shelley.
Love all the photos. Old buildings are still my favorites to photograph.
I love old buildings too, Jeanne. The character just can’t be matched.
Absolutely LOVE the polka dot picket fence … I want one! Great array, Carole.
I look forward to seeing one in front of your new house, Cheryl. 🙂
I hope this means you are planning a trek to Ontario for a visit when the house is done?! Definitely should have a polka dot fence in front of the Studio I plan to build there don’t you think? …
Beekeeper’s cottage… What a lovely name.
The light in the last shot is quite special, I was wondering why, but then I saw you mentioned the setting sun.
I appreciate that, Caroline. I don’t have a lot of experience with sun flare in my shots, so I never know how people will receive them.
I’ve never seen ambiance spelled with an e!
This whole place looks magical.
You’ve been in France too long. 😉
