Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and are ready for a relaxing weekend. We will mostly be in the car this weekend, luckily I have the best company!
I will update you along the way with some pics too!
How true is today's quote, I have used many embellishments to hide little accidents!
Karen's Waddesdon Manor Highlights
These chairs reminded me of Charlie and that the backs look like buckets
Look at that ceramic pot too The flowers may have been punched/cut but to then to have to stick that many onto the pot!
Karen has kindly shared some of the Highlights from her trip to Waddesdon Manor.
Obviously the chandelier, it's stunning and one of the things that stayed in my mind from our visit a good 10 years ago. Here is Some information about it:
This chandelier is made of broken porcelain and cutlery and was commissioned for the Blue Dining Room in 2003. Its energy and irreverence make it particularly popular with visitors. Its appearance is the result of both accident and design. Maurer and his manufacturing team dropped the ceramics on the floor or smashed them with a hammer, further broke or smoothed some pieces, and then arranged and mounted them, with cutlery, onto the metal armature and light source.
Those chairs are so lovely, so different too. So unusual in style.
Now only a crafter can appreciate the work that went into that vase, just look at all those individual flowers.
I wonder how much that bottle of Wine is worth, especially with Diana's autograph on! Their Wine cellars are just something else. I have had the privilege (? Not sure I would have classed it as that but hey) to taste a couple of different wines from Rotheschild Wine Estate, Chateau Lafite & Chateau Mouton, when I worked in a fancy Wine Merchant in Colchester, I'm pleased that we were allowed to spit it out!! Clearly my palette wasn't 'refined' enough! I am no Wine snob, but I was proper amazed by the sheer size of their wine cellars.
Thank you so much Karen for sharing the special parts of your day. XXX
That's all for today Ladies, I hope that you all have a lovely weekend.
Sending Love and hugs to you all,
