Windows of Switzerland

It is said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. So it is with the windows of the house. They are a hint of the interior of the house.
The traditional mountain houses of Switzerland are beautiful. They display the skil of the carpenter's and joiner's craft. Each house is unique made with love, designed especially for the family that has lived there generation after generation. They are almost never sold to outsiders.

My favorite

Great post! Love any kind of old windows!
Being German all these images make me a bit 'homesick', although I'm living in the most beautiful part of France, the Périgord, where we're surrounded of old historical houses!

But these windows remind me on my time in South Germany.
Best wishes for a sunny weekend,
