Autumn has arrived 2

Standard

I have always loved the colours of autumn, the warmth, the golden colours emerging from the greens of summer, treasure.
I have been carding my naturally dyed wool with commercial fleece i.e. bought from Bristol wool fair, along with re-cycled sari yarn, silk, alpaca, jute, linen etc etc. All together they make a pallet of autumn or so i felt.

Jon has worked hard putting lots of love and life back into Daisy. She is a 1970’s Stirling one of the last ever made. He bought her at a local classic car auction. She is painted with Annie Sloan paint and has lovely Cole & Cole curtains. We have put  Daisy in the paddock, she seems to like being under the oak tree looking out across the Mully Brook valley. She will be available through airb&b in August and our website devonvalleyglamping.co.uk  we just have to make the final safety checks, electrics and gaz. She has a double bed and is quite luxurious.

 

A holiday for lily and the doggies

We decided to try out our latest little gem, she is a Carlight Cassetta, we think circa 1976, she has been brightened up with a little Annie Sloan paint and a new floor. Well how lucky were we with Mediterranean sunshine in Cornwall.

A glorious Easter weekend in Devon we have set up Ruby for glamping in the beautiful Taw valley in North Devon. She sleeps two and sits in our apple orchard with a fire pit nearby to warm yourself in the cool of the evening. A perfect place to relax and digitally detox.

Jonny just gets the feel of the landscape around here, wonderful undulating hills, ever changing hues of green and the autumn colours can take your breath away. I keep telling him to paint small domestic paintings (hoping they will sell) but he can’t help himself and needs to do BIG as the vista’s are BIG and sweeping, from one side of ones vision to the other.
