A Wreath For George Stephensons Cottage

Having collected some lovely wreath making materials near the birthplace of world famous railway pioneer George Stephenson, I thought it would be nice to make a wreath for the cottage. It is owned by the national trust. The 18th century cottage is furnished as it would have been in 1781, when George Stephenson was born there. It is the smallest national trust property in Northumberland and is open to visitors March 'till November. The cottage is occupied all year round and is situated on the country park footpath, that was once a railway line, on the banks of the River Tyne.

Kindly, Joy, the lady who lives and works there, said she would put my wreath on the front door of the cottage. Sure enough it was there this morning when I walked up there with the dog. It looks a little rustic, but this probably suits the style of the cottage.
