Karen is a birdlover and had many gorgeous 'birdie' decorations. I loved this one in our bedroom.
All the light switches had decorative covers and were beautiful.
|Richard, their son (who stayed with friends while we were staying at the house) was starting some herbs on the widow sill ready for summer.|
This sculpture of birds on a branch was made of different types of wood. It sat on the window sill in the dining room.
Her pantry was huge but also contained the spearpoint well for their water source and the hot water service which heated the house with pipes running around the edge of the floorspace in every room. They still call the hot water service the 'furnace' which still conjures up pictures of shovelling coal into a big fire box! Karen's basket collection hangs from the pantry ceiling.
Karen's kitchen with the ceiling painted blue with clouds. A welcome sight in winter.
I loved Karen's night light covers. So much more imaginative than the ones I've seen in Aus.
Another vignette. This time a tin lantern, an antique candle mould and a horn of some animal.
