Anglesey Abbey


Last week the girls and I spent part of a day at Anglesey Abbey, a National Trust property. We had lunch, walked through the old house, shopped at the second hand bookstore (it’s M and I’s favorite place, can’t beat £.30 chapter books), walked around the garden and then parked ourselves in the middle of one garden to read. Jovie ran around crazy (as photographed above) like usual while we read.

Today I asked M what she wanted to do and she said, “Let’s go to the garden again.” We couldn’t go though, it rained and so we just went to our local park after the sun came out. We’ve been having a great summer break. We still have a couple more weeks and we plan on doing as many fun things as possible. Tomorrow we’re hoping for a maze maize outing but if it rains it might just be a big indoor playground. We’ll be going with some friends and very looking forward to this part!!

I have here a digital page of our outing. This was at the Abbey’s rose garden. The flowers were starting to wilt but from a distance, they’re still pretty looking. I used some cute goodies from Jessica Sprague: Elle’s Studio Sweet summer paper and tags, Kitschy Digital Fabric Flowers, Carina Gardner stitching and staples, and Cosmo Cricket alphas. I had a fun and relaxing time making this page. I love the soft feel, the layering while still keeping it simple and the fun buttons. LOVE the buttons!!

Hope you all have a great one! Until next time!

    1. Okay thanks – I missed it initially I guess because it just shows a small part of the paper. I’m going to put that on my wish list 🙂

  1. Great layout! I love Anglesey Abbey. Did you go in February when they have the winter walk and all the snowdrops? If not, try to go next February. Also last Christmas they did a special event for kids where there was carol singing and the kids made paper lanterns and then at twilight they had a procession along the winter walk so they could display their creations – it was great seeing all the kids excitement!
