A couple more sketchbook/diary pages

A visit to Snowshill Manor (NT - Broadway, Glos) is always worth a trip if you're looking for inspiration. It's jam packed to the rafters with everything imaginable. I love the Chinese cabinets with endless drawers full of tiny treasures. The page has a panel of key fabric which Laura used to stock - think she still does (here's a link to check if you're interested)

Left are some keys and a beetle. There are cabinets of both on the landings and stair wells.



Stratford Butterfly Farm, which is near enough to make a quick happy visit with small grandchildren- even if they're frustrated with not being able to touch the butterflies!
