One of my favourite ancient sites is Pompeii. Among the ruins is pieces of art that have remained intact since the fateful eruption of Mt Vesuvius in AD 79. Take a bit of a scroll with me and have a poke around the houses and buildings of Pompeii.

The courtyard of a wealthy citizens house
Birds figured in a number of designs on the walls
Repeating patterns on many of the walls decorating the houses
I am getting so lucky with photo challenges lining up for me, although it’s a bit of a stretch for Jude’s Orange challenge where she asked “Where have you seen orange?” It is a Past Square from #SquareTime and it is from the distant past. A wonderful vessel at Pompeii which held the families food. A bit big for my pantry though.
If the vessel isn’t orange enough, maybe the columns from down the road a bit are?
This months photo challenge in square format from Becky is Time
This month I will put a song with the photo.
The December theme is TIME. I am sure everyone has found at least one #timesquare, but just in case you are struggling here are some #timesquare ideas;
Timepieces – clocks, watches, sun dials and egg timers
Sayings – Time & tide wait for no man (or woman!), A stitch in time saves nine, Early bird catches the worm, In the nick of time or More haste, less speed
Synonyms – era, moment, season, infinity, interval, lifetime and age
Out of the box – nighttime, downtime, pastime and mealtimes!
