Love the carving...I'd bring a little cushion before I plop my little derriere here now in the cold!

Looks more like a shot from England than Birmingham. You did mean Birmingham, Alabama not England, right?

Cool bench. Very fancy!

Exquisite!

Thérèse said...

More like a sculpture than a confortable seat!

Daryl said...

Ken Mac said...

a carved in wood bench? Wonderful

Jacob said...

Doesn't look all that comfortable, but the carving is quite beautiful!

Very nice detail and muted colors! But I have to say...it looks like it's made of cement to me....what would it be called? cast cement? cement relief?

KM,
Actually it's concrete or something similar. Beautiful isn't it!

B2,
Merry old Alabama!

Char said...

Bob Crowe said...

No, it couldn't be. This looks like it has to be in Italy. You nailed the atmosphere of the place.

Virginia said...

Wait till tomorrow's post on both blogs.
