In the steps of Virginia Woolf...

as well as visiting the wondrous Charleston Farmhouse, we took a trip to Monks House, the country home of author Virginia Woolf and her husband Leonard... Virginia was also the sister of Vanessa Bell.










































This was my first visit to Monks House. One of my favourite things was that large quirky lampshade!

We also visited lovely Lewes, which I loved! Full of independent shops and lots of antique and secondhand shops. My kind of shopping!

























Enjoy your Wednesday!

At last.....Charleston Farmhouse

last week we set off on our little jaunt down to Kent/East Sussex, and on my wish list of places to visit, was the glorious Charleston Farmhouse, home of artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant. I can't quite remember when I first became aware of Charleston and the Bloomsbury set, I think there may have been a TV programme, showing the renovations of the house, but for a long while I have been fascinated by the lives of these people and their homes.



































Unfortunately you are unable to take photographs inside the house.
It really is a wondrous place, the garden was wild and lovely, the house just as I remembered it from my last visit...

Enjoy your Bank Holiday Monday!
