Yesterday I spent the day at a local heritage park The Folk and Transport Museum with my sister and my two little nephews.
It was a clear, bright but cold day just right for wondering through yesteryear times and leafy country tracks. The smell of peat was heavy in the air (I love that smell). After trips like this I appreciate the simplicity of peoples lives from long ago and I also appreciate the benefits of modern living such as electricity, central heating, plumbed water, the internet and doorways that I can actually walk through without banging my head! But there are some special things that really appeal eg the everyday crafts that are almost forgotten now, the wonderful art of make-do, the patchwork quilts, home baking, things that were built to last! These are a few of the photos that I took on our day out, I hope you like them.
