The spice in variety


Both in William Street, same side of road. Not adjacent, but not far apart at that. Yet so very different style.


There is a French 'feel' to 'I like birds' and its new and vintage homewares. I suspect it will suit me down to the ground, so feel compelled to return and unzip my pockets a bit. The other terrace, which really is ME, is simply labelled McLean and I think to be a private lodging.

Gorgeous Julie!

While the one on the left looks bigger, the one on the right looks so much more appealing. It wouldn't take too much effort to make the former look a lot better.

Such intricate decoration, iron as lace?

It looks almost like lace, made so beautiful.

Dianne said...

Yes Julie! definitely a French feel with lacey ironwork balconies and those trailing pots of colour - you could be some-where in the back roads of the old Montmartre.

Julie said...

Rue le Pic comes to mind, Dianne. I will do some comparisons on my French blog when I get time. I am doing a lot of childcare at the moment. They both have a fever today.

Wonderful collection, Julie.

I spy good stuff in that shop.
I like that table out the front, and inside the window - top shelf - the three thingyed aqua vase on the right.

They are sweet houses now but I can still remember how run down they looked in the 50 & 60's.
