Country Woodwork

Here's another drawing of some of the interior of the country house I visited on New Year's night in 2005-2006. I admired the woodwork around the doors and the authentic hand-made rustic furniture. The house was heated by burning wood and the warmest place was in the kitchen where we could sit by the banked oven fire. There was more woodwork going on as the owners were renovating a room. They had bought furnishings and bedding for it, all with a "dinosaur" theme and called it "The Dino Room." This room was not, as you might suspect, for a child, it was the master bedroom for Mr. and Mrs. Homeowner. These folk and I have drifted apart and I miss them and this rural retreat home.
