I look forward to checking out your posts!
So without further adieu here is my 5th trinket.
2013 – Britain – Chatsworth House Print
Chatsworth House is a stately home in Derbyshire England. I bought this print in a flea market in Chesterfield after visiting Chatsworth with my good friend and her beautiful children who are my godchildren, affectionately referred to as Jedi George and Princess Emily.
I have fond memories of a day of laughter, a picnic, exploring the vast grounds, paddling in the fountain stream and ice cream!
The next day I was exploring Chesterfield and found a great market happening in the town square. There were lots of trinkets and second hand junk but this print really caught my eye as it was somewhere I had been with people I love.
It’s a lovely picture of the grand house, it hangs on my wall and houses grand memories of a wonderful day.

Aww… The view from the little bridge too. I love Chatsworth. The fountain stream where you paddled – was that in the stepped waterfall in the formal gardens? The river in front of the house in your painting is often full of paddling cows in the Summer!
And yes – there’s a lot of weird junk to be found on Chesterfield market! You have a very nice painting there though. All those little ornate pointy bits along the roof line were reguilded a couple of years ago to a bright gold which glint (practically blind you!) in the sunshine. It’s all very bling, lol!
I’m so glad you had a lovely day there – you can never quite rely on good weather in the UK. It’s why we’re all so obsessed with it! 🙂
