A Holiday CardPosted: May 12, 2012
Last year Lucy went on holiday with her Momma and Poppa to Gloucestershire and sent us this postcard from a visit to Snowshill Manor.
Charles Wade spent his live collecting; everyday and extraordinary objects from across the globe. He bought objects because of their colour, craftsmanship and design and restoring the house to keep them in.
The house is packed to the rafters with 22,000 or so unusual objects – from tiny toys to splendid suits of Samurai armour.
The hardest part of this piece was copying Lucy’s handwriting (and mis-spelling!)
“I have been in to Snowshill Manor and garden. The picture is of the house. I would like to live in the house, without the collection, with my family”
