I do love looking around people's houses- seeing how they live, what they choose for decoration. Shops too- how they are styled, the care taken with the displays.
I had a feast for my eyes today- when I went to see some lovely interiors in Middleton...
First of all- The Library...
A pretty hallway,
and last but not least- this lovely Haberdashery;
actually- let's have one more- the Apothecary;
Well, there's a whole street I didn't know anything about. It has several houses, an Apothecary, Haberdashers, Booksellers and a Flower shop.
It's true that no-one goes there much, just those that know about it.
And there are very few of those.
To get there, you go to Middleton- to a little road between two others, near to Weston Manor. Then, you drive down the lane almost to the end of it.
Now you must go- on foot. Only a few paces, through a gate, and knock on a door.
If you are very lucky you will be invited in, taken through the hallway, kitchen, conservatory and back garden.
Then, you go up some steps, through a door into another dwelling-and there Em is the street!
No, I'm not making it up- it's all true...
There on a workbench is the Street.
all in miniature and made by Patricia!
Look what she made for me too;
Amazing work, eh?
Lots of love to you and Annabel,
