Well its been a while since my last post, with upholstery courses, crazy busy with work and celebrating the hubbies 30th and my best friends wedding it has been super hectic!

So I thought I would kick start my blog again with this post, a friend and I went to an antiques valuation day at our local National Trust country house Calke Abbey. Set in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside Calke is maintained as a ‘country house in decline’ and has been left in a certain state of repair by the trust. Never the less it has a lovely cafe and stunning grounds for a walk. We didnt get to go in the house or the gardens but from previous visits they are fun to explore too!
