We discovered this National Trust property quite a few years ago and have been going back regularly ever since. It is definitely one of my favourites - the house is quite small and incredibly homely; you can imagine the Brunner family living there. And the gardens (with it's ancient wisteria) are very English and beautiful, surrounded by lush rolling hills. Perfect for an escape from the hustle and bustle, with lunch or a cream tea in the lovely cowshed tearoom.
Very quick blog post today I'm afraid. I'm not sure where the week has gone, feel like I'm on a bit of a roller-coaster really. But I didn't want to miss writing on here. It's so easy to get out of the habit so I must make sure I find time.
I love old buildings, especially the fine details that architects used to incorporate and that are often missing from new builds. I also love drawing old buildings. So it made sense to set myself a challenge to draw my favourite local ones as a personal drawing project. Something to do in between making lampshades, working part time and being a mum (not much time there then!)
