How exciting! Where is this Denise? xx
Morning Mo... I'm back ;DAlong with visiting family in Cheshire, we went to Plas Newydd and stayed in a house right on the beach. We also visited Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens in Llanfairpwll, Isle of Anglesey. The artist paint box shown above belonged to Rex Whistler and there are lots of his work on display. As we walked into the house there was a pianist playing classical music and I also saw my first red squirrels out in the grounds. 'It was a great short break. Chat soon xoxo
It remains me about my grandparents :-)
