I loved this and it brought back some lovely memories of traveling with our children when they were young to Williamsburg and Jamestown. When we travel, I just love to visit churches and libraries. So much history there.

Oh, I love the third one from the bottom. Do you mind if I print it for myself? There is a sweet old chapel on the campus of the University of Denver. It's so small and pretty. Why aren't there more tiny churches?

Sure, Pom Pom. Feel free to print it. Take a photo of it when it's hanging in your house so I can see it. Please?

Thanks, Debbie! I will!

Have you seen the book Sacred Spaces by Tom Rankin? Beautiful photography of churches in the South.

Your pictures are marvelous!

I loved that church in Williamsburg! We had a great guide who really knew his history.
