Local benches, II

We are still in the neighbourhood of Stølen. This time the benches have a more sturdy, but "homemade" look. They fit very well into this area of old and well maintained houses at the foot of Mount Fløyen.

With both Christmas and the new year coming up, I probably will not be posting benches for a while. And I have got to find some that are worth posting :-)

Slike kan vi like vet du, men hadde nok ønkset meg naturstein i stede for murstein som føtter til den utrolig flotte steinplata der!!

Uansett, et trivelig lite hjørne på estlandet, det var det jo :-)

Meget bra.
Men skrekk og gru. Brann hydranten er jo kamuflert i disse miljø og climatider.

Man tager hva man haver,
og med det blir det veldig sjarmerende og personlig...
Flott! :)

Sturdy homemade bench.

Will we still be meeting at your blog on Fridays for our benches?

My Chanuka bench will be posted in about an hour.
Shalom!

Pretty cold to sit on in winter; I guess your benches will soon be under snow.

Fine bilder og veldig originale benker.
Ha en fin helg i vest.

This was definitely worth posting.
Interesting bench and photographed very well. I also enjoyed seeing your photos from the other day.

These are the best benches! The homemade appearance always is better than the manufactured! Although, the scenic quality is what really matters! What a wonderful neighborhood...absolutely charming.

These homemade benches are well done and suit the purpose perfectly.

My bench is up at one of my favourite locations.

As soon as I saw Rune over at Ken Mac's, I knew you were a Norski.

Wow, that Bergen photo knocked me out.

Pernille said...

For en vakker benk! Jeg elsker slike benker og denne er jo bare perfekt plassert i omgivelsene sine. Der kunne jeg ha sittet å filosofert lenge:)

Ha ei nydelig helg og tusen takk for koselig kommentar. Du vet vi jenter tar til oss alt skryt;)

The perspective in the first one kinda reminds me of a home-made outdoor fireplace.

Wonderful photos, Bench-Master!

The colors are vibrant. Wonderful photos.

Malyss said...

The kind of benches made to last a long time. . They perfectly match with the surrounding.

PERBS said...

Wonderful old benches and I am sure they care about them having so many to sit a spell on. I finally got a thumb drive and can work it on old computer but not the PC in the community room.

this bench is in a very pretty setting - it looks like a nice place to sit and rest

This is a lovely area. The benches really are in keeping with the rest of the landscaping.

I have not been posting benches because I also need to find some worth posting. ;-)

Still more benches. I really like the rustic feel to these. Although the word 'rustic' has more of a woodsy feel to it, the slate and brick are Yorkshire 'rustic', I think
