Random Five Friday


An evening sunset with a log cabin that was built in the 1840's.  Not occupied anymore, but the prior residents had one of the best views in our county.  

Interested in visiting Kentucky?  Hope over here to check out the best things to do in my fine state.  I have knocked eighteen things off of the list so far.  I need to get busy. 

An older building, on our historic main street, is have some renovations completed.  A small group of Amish men have been working on the facade.  Seeing them work on it is like a snapshot from back in time.  

Have you ever thought of running away and buying a 13th century thatched cottage in England?  If so, you will like this sweet place.  Click on, "brochure", at the top to check out the property.  

Words cannot describe how relieved I am that Spring has finally arrived here in the Bluegrass.

Linking up with Nancy today!

  14. I have cousins in Kentucky. Loved spending time with them when I was a kid! Kentucky is a really lovely state. Of course, I am partial to Ohio, though!

  15. I've never been to Kentucky but it sounds like a lovely place to visit. That Log Cabin home is wonderful, I bet in it's time it was something else. To bad no one keeps it up now.
    That cottage is also really cool. I've long wanted to visit Ireland and see cottages like that.
    Happy Spring!

  16. No spring here yet. Today our kids did a make-up day of school to make-up for all the snow & extreme cold days this winter... and what do you know - it snowed! Messy-slick-sloppy day.
    We've been to Kentucky a couple of times and LOVED it.

  17. Never went to Kentucky when I was in your country, looks like I missed out.
    The cottage in England not to my taste to live in, they are very pretty to look at

  18. We need to visit your state. Any time we travel through, I am in awe at it's beauty. The Amish are so good at their trade. We had a group build our new building at work, and the way the guys handle things (without safety equipment) is truly amazing!

  19. What a pretty cottage! I grew up with these cottages all around me in my small village. all over really. I never actually lived in one but always dreamed. Now my dream is well, if I can't have a cottage, I would love to live in a log cabin. The one in your photo looks beautiful, that's a beautiful photograph!

  20. Love the wide sweep of land and sky . . . xx

  21. That is a more interesting list of things to do than many I have seen for other states. I only have two checked off. A day at Keeneland races isn't on the list, nor a round of golf at Valhalla. Did I do those things for no credit?

  22. Sounds like you live in a wonderful place!! What a beautiful view of the sky!!

  23. Your log cabin scene looks very enticing, beautiful wild countryside. The 12th century English home looks cosy with its low ceilings - love the thatched roof.

  24. I love, love, love wandering through KY. My parents were both born there. They moved to Michigan before I was born. I am still here. It is my dream to someday live in the Smoky Mountains.........if it is God's will. I am happy here.......have a nice home, great family and wonderful church but those beautiful mountains call to my soul. I have no desire to live in a thatched cottage.........but would love a cabin tucked away in the mountains.

  25. Hurray for Spring! Wonderful shot.

  26. Beautiful views from the old log cabin - and that thatched cottage is just so sweet! I have never been to Kentucky, but it is on my bucket list. (I am humming that song, My Old Kentucky Home) I just love the word, Kentucky. It really has a nice ring....Lots of great history there. xo Karen

  27. I've always enjoyed our trips to Kentucky.

    Have you ever read any of Karen Harper's books? She writes Amish mysteries. I'm on my third - they're fun reads.

  28. Yes, it looks like your 'world' is coming back to life, slowly.

  29. I have been there a few times and it is wonderful. Love the the photos and the views.

  30. Gorgeous photo! Such a shame the cabin is empty . Yay for the beginning of spring, we all deserve it!

  31. Love the view from that cabin. I imagine what the first family were thinking as they built it. Kentucky is on my list of must visits...so pretty!

  32. Quite a variety of things to do in Kentucky, pleased to hear you are making your way through the list. Food seems to be prominent in the middle of the list.
    The price of the house is reflected in the area it is located in ... North Cotswolds. The surrounding neighbourhood might not seem as authentic these days but possibly more affordable than other properties in central Cotswolds.
