We took a day off this week, whilst the sun was shinning and headed over to Arley Hall and Gardens in Cheshire. There’s a little more about it’s history here and here. It’s a pretty big estate, with plenty of space to wander around without bumping into people all the time.

Some very pretty architecture, the cottages look like a film set for Larkrise to Candleford lol

With a good book and cup of tea in hand this was my view of the world for an hour.

Always keeping one eye on this character, who was busy watching out for anything that scampered or hopped ! Yes you Boo !! All in all a great escape for everyone involved.

When we got back, I completed framing some new pieces to drop off at Wall Of Art, who exhibit and sell my work in Manchester’s Craft and Design Centre.

Always good to get some new work in progress. Do drop in and see what’s exhibiting, there is always a great range of work on show.

    Your work is always so fun. Nice little mini frames. I’ve always wondered about those huge homes and castles…. were all the rooms actually filled with occupants? Who would need so many rooms? At any rate, you are so fortunate to be able to visit and enjoy these places. The gardens are beautiful.

      Thanks Joy…. (can you keep a secret ? …. we didn’t actually go in lol) Stately homes and castles often leave me a little cold, I often prefer the gardens and ornate outbuildings to the main houses. You’re right tho, I am lucky to see these places and the gardens are beautiful : )
