Scenic Sunday.

Some time ago we went to visit friends of us who live in a beautiful  old village called Oirschot in  the south of Holland. Those old houses are so lovely and all built in the 16th and 17th century.
I will show a few here and some art that is showed here and there in the village.

What a pretty old town. I like the fancy step gable on those two buildings. (there's probably a different term for those ones, than 'step')

Hi Riet,
What a quaint and lovely village. It reminds me of the time I lived in Belgium. I just love the old style European buildings.

Thanks for sharing.

Hubby said he believes we were there, Riet. Just wonderful villages in Holland, so historic, beautifully clean.

Have a beautiful week.
