A Ruin

Two posts today and both of them for some of my favourite challenges

This one is for Every Inchie Monday and we are doing 52 inchies all different subjects which I think is a really terrific idea. This week the subject is RUIN.

My favourite ruin has to be Whitby Abbey which I visit as often as possible. It has such an air of mystery and if you can see it on the horizon at night it is even better. Difficult to capture the total magic of the place on an inchie but I had to try. The Abbey picture was one I took myself last year.

Hope it doesn't look like a parachute landing at the side but no picture of anything Whitby would be complete without something to do with Dracula as Bram Stoker is said to have written the famous book there. I used the bat image with dripping blood--YUK.

Love Chrissie xx


  1. I love this... the whole of Dracula on an inchie - fabulous!

  5. WOW I say it every time and I'll say it again - I can't believe how much you get on one of those tiny, tiny squares.

    It looks awesome, I love the shadow around the abbey and the dracula is a brilliant added touch!!
