Any Old Iron!
This is where we live! We have lived here for 8 years this month, having moved from a Bristol suburb. It is a stone house built in 1930 from the local stone. It was once the village post office and has also been a B&B. We have recently added a stone porch to the front entrance- something I had wanted to do for a while, as the wind used to howl under our old front door in the winter time! I finished painting the new front door the other day and have added a vine wreath to welcome visitors! I am not keen on the roof line where the tiles meet the stonework though-too much cement showing- so I am now on the lookout for any old ironwork to cover it up! Or maybe some carved wood salvaged from a Victorian Villa...you know the kind of thing! That's another trip to the local reclamation yard then! Oh my husband will be pleased! I'm sure he's thinking 'Why can't we get something from B&Q like 'normal' people!'
to be continued....
