Brodie Castle

This weekend im in Brodie Castle, located inbetween Nairn & Forres east of Inverness.

”This imposing castle stands in rich Morayshire parkland. Dating from the 16th century, Brodie has unusual plaster ceilings, a major art collection and tells the fascinating story of the Brodie family”. – http://www.nts.org.uk/Property/Brodie-Castle/

It was a windy rainy morning and just before we were due to open for the day, the skies darkened and the snow swept in.  It was quite bonnie seeing the snow flakes out of the grand windows.

Hopefully in for a good weekend, didnt expect to see many folk today but the numbers were okay considering the miserable weather.  Im always interested to see what sells from the table first especially when I have a bit of a selection.  As usual its the item I only have 1 of that was a bit of an experiment.  I didnt get a photo of it but it was a wintery looking tree, 3 layers of paint, a tracing black structure and a dusty matt coat with scratched out branches then grey green branches ontop. It started as a Rowan tree but kind of deviated.

Looking forward to the rest of the weekend, ill post extra photos on sunday…
