Not a craft post from me today, but I thought I would share with you a few photos my OH took when we visited Wallington Hall in Northumberland on Saturday . It is half an hour by car from where we live and owned by the National Trust. It was decked out in all its splendor for Christmas.
I think the stone gargoyle heads in the lawn look as if they are waiting patiently for some one to try getting past them.
This was the fire burning in the entrance hall.
Mother Christmas , who had just finished telling a group of children a story in the Drawing room.
We did have a good chat about how Christmas has changed, but we agreed that Traditional ways were best.
The Dining room all set for the festive dinner.
No we were not invited.
This was the library, with an array of gifts waiting to be opened.
The Clock Tower with Santa's sleigh outside, all the reindeer were made with rushes.
I had to add a bit of craft interest, sitting in the corridor was this child size, hand made model, complete with his Guide Badge.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed seeing the photos.
