Hello,

This week we visited Warwick Castle as we had some vouchers to use up.
Although it's very near to us it's a while since we last visited.

It has become more commercialized, in my opinion and lost a little of the charm it once had.
Despite that, it is a spectacular English Castle, full of the most beautiful paintings and furniture.

If you have the stamina to climb the towers four hundred plus stairs, you will be rewarded by the amazing views of Warwick and the surrounding countryside.
You will find more information here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warwick_Castle
I have a few more brooches to share with you, one added recently to etsy.
My store will be closed soon as we will be away on our holiday, hopefully I will have some time to sketch then!
Many thanks for your recent comments, they are very much appreciated.
Bye for now. M x

I love your embroidered trees!

The view of the Warwickshire countryside looks like the sort of place I'd love to explore.

I love your trees - they are magical. Great photos and I can see where your inspiration comes from. I haven't been to Warwick for many years and once had a spooky moment in the castle torture chamber - it was quite unnerving and I'm not usually susceptible. It's a magnificent building. Those Edwardian ladies are so elegant and make me feel a proper scruff! They weren't there when I visited. Hope you have a lovely holiday.

Firstly, absolutely gorgeous brooches! Lovely colours!

I went to Warwick Castle a few years ago and I agree with you about the commercialism but would still recommend it to anyone who hasn't been, it is a very pretty castle

Hope you have a wonderful holiday M
Enjoy your sketching and painting
