Buttons

I was away this weekend visiting a part of England which was famous for its wool mills. I was expecting to see some shops at least which would reflect its history but I didn't find any. However look what I found. These beautiful ceramic buttons in Cirencester whose Council is promoting various art and craft programmes. We stayed in a little village called Blockley, which was unspoilt. As you can see the streets were devoid of traffic and there was no commercialisation at all. It was all peaceful and a good get away to relax.

  2. I love rural England; I spent a couple of days in York and the Yorkshire Dales recently and the quaint houses, gardens and unspoilt countryside all around were absolutely stunning..!
