Victoria is the name of my house, she is a Victorian Italianate, freestanding terrace. The grand old dame is often used as a location for photographic stills and film shoots. It's an interesting occupation for a house, even more interesting for us as we get to meet lots of creative and interesting people, photographers, gaffers, actors, scriptwriters and even chefs who turn up and prepare delicious feasts to keep everybody happy during the day. It's a hoot! Some days I make myself scarce, but mostly I love to hang out and do what ever I can to get in the way. The image below was taken looking out from the main bedroom onto the balcony to the grand old magnolia tree, and there is one of my vintage suitcases and that is one very beautiful quilt, featured in the latest 'Pink Edition' of the Homespun magazine.
