Home again, home again, jiggity jig.....

Back from a couple of days away now. We stayed at Walton Hall, Wellesbourne, near Stratford - a special deal via Woman and Home magazine ( - it was a stunning place (owned at one point by Danny La Rue!) -

The chandeliers in the dining room were amazing -

The production of The Winters Tale (Dir Lucy Bailey) we went to see was also brilliant - a really good production. The computer generated images on the backdrops were superb -

Prior to the theatre we had a lovely meal at Carluccio's -

The Lemon sorbet was delicious! -

Yesterday, we went to Barn Antiques - a few miles from Stratford - BARN  - and I rather coveted this sweet cupboard in the cafe there! -

Some interesting units there - a good mix of different styles -

Bought a few items for my unit while we were away - like this child's chair -
And this unusual wire windmill - ? -
Off for some pasta now - pretty chilly here!


  1. Your hotel looks wonderful and from the exterior quite French looking. I'm glad you thought the performance was good as I'm looking forward to seeing it fairly soon. I like the wire windmill:)

  2. Hello Abby:
    What a wonderful time you had in Stratford. It is far too long since we last went to the theatre there which used to be a regular haunt when we lived in Herefordshire. The productions are always so imaginative and inspirational, clearly 'The Winter's Tale' was no exception.

    And, Walton Hall looks wonderful. Just our kind of place to stay.

  3. Beautiful. I have been dreaming about seeing a Shakespeare production in England, and that looks like the place to go!

  4. How exciting and that dining room looks very posh! Xxx

  5. Sounds wonderful! I have been drooling at the window of Carluccios today, at all the lovely pastries!

  6. Wow, amazing rooms!!!! I love the little cupboard as well,
    so cute!!!
