Then, I left London for part 2 of my vacation. I went to Harrogate, North Yorkshire where I took a 3 day Art Journal course from the fabulous Dyan Reaveley. I had a great time meeting Dyan and making friends with all the other awesome ladies who were in the class. I wish I could go back soon!!
Finally, I left for part 3, a tour of Scotland. I took a 9 day tour that started in Glasgow, went up through the Highlands and ended in Edinburgh. I found out all about the 2 clans I'm associated with and realized tons of men there look just like my brother - I definitely think we're part Scottish.
While I was gone construction started on my new house. I planned the trip long before the house, so I still went. My parents took care of things while I was gone. Not much happened because we've had unbelievable amounts of rain for the past month. I hope it dries up soon so house construction will continue at a much faster pace. I started a blog to write about what's going on at the build site. It also has the floor plan and front elevation if you're interested here is the address http://donnasnewhome.blogspot.com
Below are some pictures. I'll be back on Thursday with this weeks Play Date Cafe post.
