Dreaming of having a classic crisp white glass house in my garden someday, love the shape/design of this one.

New York City’s 1911 Beaux-Arts main branch library on Fifth Avenue has many incredible rooms for individual collections and smaller libraries within the majestic interior. This is the Rose Main Reading Room. The cavernous room is the length of two city blocks and is lit by chandeliers and lamps that grace the long oak tables. The ceiling, 52 feet above, is decorated with vibrant murals of the sky; a perfect place for getting lost in the clouds. Read more: http://www.mnn.com

Snow scene (actual photo, not a Christmas Card!) of lovely huge Christmas red barn with white trim and a Red Ribbon Christmas Wreath at hay loft level. Excellent photography composition of snowy tree branch in the foreground to give depth perception. -DdO:) http://www.pinterest.com/DianaDeeOsborne/intriguing-architecture
Christmas Market Vienna. Travelling to spend time with family is important. if you live away from your family as many people do, then one of the number one ongoing regrets you may have is the fact that you don't keep in touch as well as you'd like. The old world (Europe, etc) and the New World. It's so funny how many familial connections remain.

Istanbul,Turkey~No shoes allowed in the Blue Mosque or any mosque for that matter. Women must cover their legs and shoulders when entering the holy mosques. The Muslims practice Islam and its five Pillars. One of the pillars is to pray five times a day. Prayers can be heard over the entire country from loudspeakers coming from these beautiful mosques.
