Out and about this past week. Over the border into the county of Hampshire, we paid a visit to Winchester the old capital of Wessex and England.
Our feet trod the same ground as Kings had done. The same streets and stone that rang with cries of the black death.
In the cathedral my footsteps echoed the ghosts of footsteps, almost a 1,000 years worth of them. Did I stand in the same spot and glance at the same piece of ornate carving as Queen Mary Tudor might have done when she married Prince Philip of Spain here back in 1554?
A hushed but sleepy presence filled the cold silence.
If I could be granted a super power it would probably be the gift of flight? However it would be a hard decision to make as oh how I would I love to be able to go back in time! Which would you choose?
In the garden outside the cathedral we found a sleeping stone fox.
Winchester is a lovely place to browse around if you get the opportunity. I hope to go back soon as I haven't seen everything that I'd like to yet.
My sleeping fox has it's own story this week as I've been busy making these pendants out of my odds and ends and scraps of wood.
So, if you would like to win one of these packages that contain a postcard and pendant...
