Thanks for the great information Amelia these do look to be well used timbers alright

Amelia Royan on May 11, 2009

Hi Nick, they have obviously been used, and may be re-used once more should the occasion arise when the old dwellings need some op-pussing as they say her i Norge :)

Greetings, Amelia

I found these timbers before I found the old dwellings Mira, and I didn't understand at first why they were shaped like this. I also found stacks of old tiles - and you were with me on this woodland hill at that very moment. They were nowhere near as attractive as your beautiful tiles, so they remain unseen :)))

I like the softness of the colours as well as the patterns and purposes.

Thank you for your lovely compliment Arthur. The timbers are stored to renovate old houses which have been moved to 3 sites, from the area surrounding Drammen, as part of the open air museum.

Dear Billy, I was thinking of both you and Mira when I went walking in the hills above Drammen. I thought you might like this one. There were also stacks of tiles too, but nowhere near as lovely as Mira's photo :))

Weathered and grainy, with roughened texture .... just like me!

Amelia Royan on May 13, 2009

Thank you Ian. It wasn't until I came upon the old house in the open air museum that I realised why they were shaped like this :)

Bonnie Lad - a bit like me too I'm afraid, but you always make me smile - and get even more wrinkles :)))

Ca canny noo, Amelia

Thought I should provide a link from this image to its Aussie mate, Amelia.

Amelia Royan on May 14, 2009

I hope this will prove to be a good link for other people Ian. I have already replied to your photo more fully - great minds ....

Greetings, Amelia
