Well I came back, splurted out three posts and then vanished... I do have a good excuse, I've got tonsillitis and a cold so have been rather wiped out and snotty. I know I still have a few promised posts but they require brain power and deserve a lot of loving planning so I shall leave those till another day and leave this little featurette I wrote a while back but never got round to posting to keep things ticking along until I feel a bit brighter!
A wee while ago I went on a trip to Eltham Palace, a deco dream of a place ad well worth a visit. It's extremely deceptive, outside the original Medieval building stands proud, but as you enter you're faced with deco splendour. I have since been swooning over the memory of two of the rooms (and an ex-resident)...
The entrance hall. It's been used in lots of films. And is responsible for haunting my interior decor dreams. Alas my "entrance hall" is roughly 6ft x 5ft so I fear this look is rather inappropriate!
Lady Virginia Courtauld's bathroom... If only I could fit that into my poky little bathing room... Sigh!
The Courtauld's pet Ring Tailed Lemur "Mah-Jongg". I would feel too cruel owning one as a pet (and surely it's illegal now-a-days?), but would love to see one in the wild... what beautiful animals they are! Fly me to Madagascar!
