Prettying up the city

You would think that a city that is full of buildings like this

Oxford 1

and this

Not to mention bridges like this

Oxford Bridge

wouldn't need any extra embellishment, but that is where you would be wrong.

Wandering around Oxford last weekend I came across this!

Yarn bombing 2 Oxford

It is safe to say that this square in Oxford had been well and truly yarnstormed.

And very pretty it looked too!

  1. Gorgeous photos! Hope you're enjoying your travels :D

  2. Loving these photos, a trip down memory lane for me, as Oxford is my home town.... I hope you are having a great time - yarn bombing is crazy!!!! x

  3. Your photos are wonderful. I love the beautiful, old architecture.

    1. Thanks Cheryl, Oxford has amazing buildings everywhere you look!

  4. Mmm that bridge is pretty! The yarnstorming ain't too bad either :-)

  5. That's very pretty! I hope people leave it there and don't nick it!

  6. Gorgeous photos Fiona! I wish one day I could visit the UK.

  7. The yarn bombing is fantastic!!

    I used to live down the road from Oxford in a little village near Banbury and we'd often go into town on a Saturday. There are some amazing buildings - but there's an equal share of vile, 60's monstrosities that can spoil many a photo opportunity!! I always wondered how they managed to film Morse and Lewis and leave the viewer with the impression that the whole city is beautiful!!

  8. I love yarn garlands! I have one on my very own staircase. Beautiful, really.

  9. I wonder if it had to do with knit in public week?

  10. I do love a good yarn bombing! What a beautiful city (even without the yarn!)

  11. Oh we saw evidence of Guerilla Knitters in Boston, how funny.

  12. Ha, no-one is safe from yarn-bombing!
