Charlecote park kitchens, laundry and brew house

August 8, 2014

Oh boy, I was in heaven in these Charlecote park rooms.

As a collector of all things vintage, my heart went all out to everything here and I just wanted to move in. As a matter of fact, I contemplated applying for the volunteer job the lady had in the kitchen, making scones for the children and petting the kitchen cat all day.

Except I’d end up painting in these rooms…lol…I just know it. Great big canvases stood up all along the walls. Might not go over too well with the National Trust.

Anyway, have a look and this incredibly photo-heavy post…but then you already know that’s the standard round here. 😀

What follows is the most beautiful vintage house porn you’ve seen in a while, and, if you’re like me and love old copper and black steel and ironstone, let’s move in here together.

You can do the scones and I can paint. ;D

    I cant imagine how hard life must have been back then. Really no time to play like we do today. Wonderful photographs! I love all the stone and wood!

    I’ll paint, we’ll have to find someone else to make scones. I love the colours, textures, the sense of home, the era, but not all of the work! I like to play too much!
