While we were in Cornwall we walked across a field to Brad’s Aunt Nan and Uncle John’s house. Remember Aunt Nan’s shadow box art that I mentioned here? Turns out she loves to make paintings as well as sculptures out of gourds (so many gourds!). She even creates giant chocolate chip cookies, fried eggs and slippers by felting wool. The kids loved exploring her art and yoga studio (created from a chicken coop) and had even more fun using the dog door near the front entrance!

The house tour is great as well — we particularly loved the blue kitchen with appliances hidden in the counter tops!
