Our house hunt continues, and summer is in full swing so we’ve been out and about enjoying the great British countryside. Let’s see what else is in our Top Five
We’re a little bit obsessed with blue and white pottery, so when we stumble across some vases in a local charity shop we snapped them up. If we carry on at this rate we will have filled our new home with pottery before we’ve even found it!
Whilst we were out and about on Saturday we decided to pop into the north Hampshire village of Overton to scope it out as a potential move location. Our visit coinsided with their sheep fair held every four years. Although only started in 2000 it is a tradition the harks back to the villages medieval history. It is now a well attended community event with music, stalls, morris dancers and of course the parade of sheep!
After years of coveting a Anglepoise lamp Rich finally bit the bullet and bought a 1227 model in black (thanks to Amazon Prime day, and a massive discount). Anglepoise lamps are design classic, as stylish now as they were designed in 1932. We think it is a great investment!
On Saturday night we had a date night at the end of the garden. Rich set up the table and Calum cooked dinner. It was lovely to unwind with good food, good wine and a peaceful setting.
We love the Cotswolds. It surely has to be one of England’s most beautiful and charming areas. On Sunday we went for a little a Road trip. We stopped of at Snowshill Manor to eat our picnic and a wander round. It is a curious place stuffed to to the beams with eclectic treasures collected by Charles Wade. From Chinese cabinets to Penny Farthings cycles, it is all here.
