UK + The Netherlands + Finland

I should’ve updated this blog a long time ago. :-/

So, I got this postcard from my pal Anu a while ago.

It’s showing the Wightwick Manor on the outskirts of Wolverhampton. I Googled it and this is what it says: “A late Victorian manor house, built in the Old English style by local industrialist Theodore Mander, Wightwick Manor is perhaps the best surviving example of a home furnished under the influence of the Arts & Crafts movement. The rich interiors feature many original wallpapers, fabrics and furnishings by William Morris, artwork by Rossetti and Burne-Jones, glass by Charles Kempe and ceramics by William de Morgan. The house sits in seven hectares (seventeen acres) of attractive Arts & Crafts gardens, designed by Thomas Mawson, which are Grade II listed in their own right.”

So, the next postcard is an official from The Netherlands (NL-384290), showing old local clothing.

The last one is an official from Finland (FI-849397) and I was so happy when I found it in my mailbox. It’s been one of my favorites for quite a while and I really appreciate Petra’s effort to look at my favorites section and to actually send me one!
