Be Wild, Snowdrops & Treeingham Palace!


Over at UK Stampers the journal page challenge for this week is to use one predominant colour and some doodling. I remember I saw an exhibition by Mark Rothko which was dark grey with a tiny touch of orange so thought I would have a go at making a similair background for this page.


my favourite arch (an old orangerie)

secret passageway..kids built a chair with a load of found bricks

Treeingham Palace

Beautiful snowdrops

We all went to the nearby woods today which has excellent trees, old orangerie ruins and is one of my fav places to visit as its always an adventure. We found a huge tree which the kids called Treeingham Palace as it was their den and they had a great time climbing all the twisty branches then later exploring some old orangerie ruins and building a chair with found bricks..great day out and free!

Magical times when your children are young.I always used to take my boys to Charmouth/Lyme Regis in school holidays for a day out. To hunt for fossils on the Jurassic coast.Happy memories.
