Visiting Open Studios

In the pretty village of Wing in Rutland, in the village hall, Pearl and I stumbled upon Open Studios. There, my favourite artist was Julie Wade for her amazing textile jewellery and Pearl took a shine to the cat.

Pearl visits Toot Sweets

Pearl found herself amongst the chocolate mice and lemon sherberts at Toot Sweets of Oakham - purveyors of traditional confectionery. The best traditional and vintage inspired sweetshop ever! Check it out at http://www.toot-sweets.co.uk/

Pearl's Half term Horticultural Antics

Whilst visiting her cousin in Rutland, the first stop was Clipsham Yew tree Avenue owned by the Forestry Commission, then off to Barnsdale Gardens which Pearl remembers from Gardeners World.
