My reading recliner, and you can see the edge of the frame of one of my favorite pictures.
Below the picture is " Shakespeare's Birthplace" It is part of the " Dickens's Village Series'
Christmas Village. Melanie gave it to me for Christmas and I will probably get an edition every year. She collects two different sets and thinks I need to collect one too. I know what she has in mind. When I croak, she'll inherit it! I really do love it !
This is the history of it.
" Steeped in culture and history, this half timbered residence on Henley Street in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon is one of the most famous literary landmarks in England. Set in the beautiful rural Warwickshire countryside, this is the house where William Shakespeare was born in 1564. The exterior was originally made of local materials: oak from the Arden Forest and
blue stone from the village of Wilmcote."
