- What a fabulous finale to our holiday. Salt's Mill and Saltaire are just as wonderful as I remember. It might sound a bit melodramatic but seeing all of Hockney's "The Arrival of Spring" iPad drawings printed so large, in such a beautiful setting made me feel a bit teary. I think they are tapping into some deep yearnings within me, plus I read a book of interviews with Hockney just after my dad died in which he talked a lot about creating these pieces and how much that particular East Yorkshire landscape meant to him. Anyway, there you go, the power of art 'n' all that. . . Also pictured - Beginner's Guide to Sewing With Knitted Fabrics in the Salt's Mill bookshop 🤗 was the cherry on today's cake. Plus some gorgeous paintings of and inspired by Salt's Mill by @kittynorthartistHow I love thee Yorkshire 💚 I know I'm probably biased but I really can't think of anywhere better. Pictured: 1 - me and @gypsyandmarmite on the Trans Pennine Trail yesterday 2 - ultimate house goals 3 - river Don 4 - no description required 😜We also found some little treasures in the local antique shop ✅ Wade porcelain ✅made in England 🐟👌 #madeinengland #englishceramicsDoors that go on forever, marble as far as the eye can see and views that go on forever @wentworth_woodhouse Is packed full of amazing craftsmanship and artistry. That mosaic is made of pieces only millimetres in size and that chandelier has more sparkles than a diamond. Such a fabulous place and brilliantly entertaining and knowledgeable guides.
