Rummaging through photos from last holiday season, I found a few from a winter visit to Shakespeare country. (It really is my favorite place to visit!) Here, then, are a few holiday postcards from Shakespeare’s birthplace, and from Anne Hathaway’s cottage.
Caput apri defero / Reddens laudes Domino
The parental bed … with Tudor rat.
Shakespeare’s cradle. Or something like it. Fortunately rat-free.
Prep area in the kitchen. With another rat.At the cottage, there is always an effort to share pieces of Shakespeare’s plays and poems. Last year, there was a holiday theme.
The gardens are put to bed for the winter, but the festive tree was a fun addition to the scene.
