May Scavenger Hunt 2017

Lichen and moss.
It always reminds me of an aerial view of the countryside and imagine a town or village or hamlet and people going about their business in there.  Think of the stories that could be written......

The stained Glass window featuring Henry VIII at Hampton Court Palace

Week Twenty

Last Wednesday the BBC Antiques Roadshow rolled into town!

It was a very wet day, and we went down at about 9 am to West Somerset Steam Railway Station and there was long queue with a variety of bags, and some things not in bags.........

I took my teddy bear and dolls.  I just missed seeing Hilary Kaye.  The gentleman I saw was informative of my bear, which is a Petz Bear which although rare not worth much.  Been loved too much!  His fur is rough and his stuffing is escaping and his growler doesn't growl anymore, but he is my bear!  Petz only lasted a few years and there isn't much written about them.  The stuffing is wood wool.

Not much about the dolls.

We found a path which walked along the Thames,  A pretty walk - where we saw the the back garden of Hampton Court  The path didn't quite take us to where we wanted to be though
