Farm Bloggers at Walnuts Farm

Just for one day we were farm bloggers.

On Friday April 4 Geraldine, Lottie, Emily, Catherine, Tina, Igor, Bridgee, Kat and I got Walnuts Farm in East Sussex to ourselves for one whole day. 10 photographers and bloggers running wild at this beautiful farm was an idea that started on Twitter about six months ago. Emily wanted to go, Will, Igor and I wanted to join and soon others followed. Unfortunately Will couldn’t make it in the end and he was dearly missed.

Stepping inside Walnuts Farm was like stepping inside an antique shop. Everything in the home of Nick and Bella is old and displayed as if one was travelling through time.

I love visiting properties like Walnuts Farm, I love how people can live simply and don’t mind people running around their home. I couldn’t deal with all the mess or with the chipping paint. I would love to go back with a bucket of hot water and fresh smelling soap, a paint brush and a hoover. I could spend all day cleaning, painting and washing until everything looked brand spanking fresh and new. How simple my life could be if I didn’t care about mess and dirt ;o)

We had to play around with my book so Igor styled this nook using Kat’s scones and props she brought with her from The Hambledon. Kat also made the beautiful spring wreath, you can find out how to on her blog.

Thanks gang for such a fun day xox

    What a fun trip to visit so many nifty farms, I love the cart and old stove, my grandmother had a wood burning stove she kept even when she built her new home. And I found your blog when I was looking for crochet coasters. I am a beginner at crocheting and think I can handle your instructions! Thanks for making them simple. Have a great week, Karren

    I bet if you offer them for free to go and clean and paint their house they won’t complain one bit.

    You could do it as a blog challenge. One week at Walnut Farm.

      Now that would be a fun challenge. It’s just that I get upset when I see a beautiful old property not looked after. But well eh …

        Oh you know that’s the charm why you loved it 🙂 If it was all perfect and shiny it would have been not English and it would be Disneyland.
