Love the resting beanie, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Ray. smile Thanks.
a place to hang your hat on Ginnie... i like the texture is the ceiling and walls... with cracks and patches... they were being very safe with the mirror... it is sitting on a dresser but still has a big hook holding it onto the wall....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: It's fun to notice the details, Peter, isn't it! Thank you.
Ah yes, so true! Very nice find, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Elizabeth...and happy birthday, again!

Somebody was cold arriving home after the service. I like those Nooks and Crannies, so many things to see. Great picture, if only the walls could talk...the stories to be heard.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, MLMA. That would have been a better title: If These Walls Could Talk!

Well spotted Ginnie. We have a hat & coat stand like this. A couple of days ago it did what this one appears to be doing, it broke in half, leaving a pile of coats, hats & scarves on the floor. But we have now reunited the two parts, sorted the clothing (chucking some away) and found various things we thought we'd lost forever. So some good came of this domestic trauma.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, how fun, Chris...to have a real-life story to match this image. smile Thanks for sharing.

I hope the cap will find its owner again before the winter time will start - what your eyes do discover wherever you are!
Ginnie Hart: That's what I hope, too, Philine. smile Bedankt.

Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, JP, and room for some coats, too. smile
Well spotted indeed Ginnie! A great eye you have.
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Richard. Thank you.

I well remember when Chris last sorted out his coat-stand, and Charlie came out the winner with a new gilet! Love the Church bits and bobs here
Ginnie Hart: Bits and bobs are the most fun of them all, Lisl, aren't they! I loved hearing about Chris' own story.
Now there's an interesting place! Nice photo Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: The things we see when we look hard, Martin! smile Thanks.

You've captured the atmosphere so well, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, dear Pauline!
OMG! You're not gonna believe this!
I have been there too!
I think there's another place nearby called Alton Priors.
Been there too smile
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, LC. We were at Alton Priors, too. So, let's chalk up another one to posterity for both of us! smile
Like me you enjoy the nooks and crannies Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Bill. Is that because we're both Gemini??? smile
I wonder how long that hat's been there Ginnie. Nice shot capturing the age of the place and it looks like it had that old church smell too.
Ginnie Hart: One might assume that the hat has been there for a long time, Janet, and be correct! I don't recall a smell but on a rainy, humid day, I'm sure there is one. smile

It's good to have somewhere to hang your hat. I like Chris' story.
Ginnie Hart: Chris has a good story for this image, indeed, Alan. And yes, it's very important to have a place to hang our hats!
This looks domestic with this view Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Nothing better than a domestic church, Chad, right?! smile
Great find Ginnie, funny how things get left in churches, we had an umbrella in the vestibule of our chapel for ages and then it suddenly disappeared.
Ginnie Hart: I'm very familiar with nooks and crannies in churches, Brian, as you know...but none this old. smile
there is an atmosphere of peace here...
Ginnie Hart: Good. As long as it's not spooky, Larry! smile
Love when that happens!!
Ginnie Hart: I know you do! Me, too. smile

The treasure being the moisted over walls and ceiling? Since you are supposed to be in summer, that noggin warmer is a long forgotten item, I guess.
Ginnie Hart: I hope someone finds his/her hat before it gets cold again, Louis. Yes.

the everyday things are sometimes the most interesting
That is a very unusual find in a church....
I would go for that picture on the right.
With the object on the hat stand it makes me think it should be nooks and grannies smile
