Five on Friday


Welcome back! Here are five more photos giving us a sample of life back in the simple past here in Ulster.


This is the Rectory and one of my favourite houses in the park. The Rector enjoyed a higher standard of living.

This is another bedroom with crib.  It really does look spartan.



A wonderful old slipper bath in front of the fire.  I'd definitely want to bathe first!


So many wonders to see in the corner shop!

Another very well recreated shop was the haberdashery.



Hope you enjoyed this very quick peep into the past!

Thanks for all your comments and don't forget to visit Amy at Love Made My Home for more Five on Friday.





Best wishes

  5. I love the door's blue borders. I was told people in Morocco use blue paint like that, and the white, to keep insects away. I am curious if that works and if it may be the reason it was used here. Do you know?

  6. The packets in the grocery are fascinating but what I really love is a haberdashery. Could spend ages in there. Thank you. x

  7. The rectory is lovely isn't it, but I imagine a lot of work to keep up on a vicar's stipend. It is always interesting to see these old shops isn't it. Glad you enjoyed the visit. Thank you for taking part in Five On Friday, I hope you have a great weekend! xx
