Mac: Those are certainly some great homesteads in England. Lucky you could capture a wee folk.

I'll nominate you this week, not because I won your competition yesterday, but because you've highlighted how lucky you are (and me up to a point) to live so close to so many historical houses.

Gaelyn said...

Me thinks you have high aspirations for your home by the gracious look of these estates, but I be more comfortable with the young lad. Your header certainly wins for cuteness Imac, but I've yet to see FG.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Very creative, Mac.... I like it!!!! Good Luck!

Carletta said...

These are some very stately homes -beautiful.
I like your header - very clever.
Must go see what Darla came up with.

Craver Vii said...

I like this little guy, and wish I could go inside for a nice ROOT beer float!

I'll go ahead and vote for this header. Nice job, Imac!

Cezar and Léia said...

Magnificent houses, I mean... wonderful castles!!!
You are a great artist dear Imac, and that tree house is also fantastic!
England is really a place to be "elegant"!
