Such a relaxing week was had that we found it a struggle to drag ourselves away from our fairytale log cabin at Eagle Brae and return to city life in Bristol. We enjoyed a week of country walks, highland drives, snow, slow cooked stews, wine (of course) and warm fires. Heading back has been a bit of a shock to the system as my husband is straight back into a busy working schedule that doesn't let up for many weeks ahead.
|Claudette found a snug little corner of the suitcase.|
|Toasting my feet, Claudette seems to fit right in with the log cabin decor! Walking boots! (because sometimes you just have to put glamour aside)|
|The little children's beds had heavy wool curtains to pull across when you were ready to fall asleep. Reminded me of '42nd Street' when everyone is in their beds on a steam train singing Shuffle off to Buffalo!|
I obviously did a little bit of sketching and painting while away (don't go anywhere without a sketch pad) and came up with some new ideas for dolls and projects I'd like to give the Pip treatment. I also drew flappers and land girls, cheeky ghosts and prim school mistresses (another story for a later post)
I hope everyone had an adventurous and happy week and rest assured if you have sent me any correspondence I will mail you back next week.
Happy Sunday! x
