Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday.
It's the fabulous Nance's turn to host our Paper Players card this week and she has a code word that really appeals to Lou:
On a personal note:
It's still cold here.... but... the weatherman has promised us that it is definitely getting warmer this week and I can tell you that I am very happy about some warmer weather!
When we were walking around Haddon Hall we came across this Spinet and it dates from the first decade of the 17th century. How amazing is that? I was amazed that I was standing in front of a musical instrument that has been played for over 300 years.
Isn't that paneling gorgeous, too? The spinet is at the end of the grand gallery. Which is such a beautiful room
The grand gallery was designed to allow the women of the time to get some exercise without being affected by the sun or rain. Keeping their complexion white and not sun-kissed was very important for the women of the 15th century. I love the paneling on the walls and the beautiful ceiling. The windows were fascinating, too. this is original 15th century leaded glass - you can even see how the glass is buckling.
Here's an outside view of the Hall.
I'll be back tomorrow with another card. In the meantime warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
