In common with most country homes,
everyone comes straight to the back door.
My Utility Room houses racks for coats and wellies and Bruce's tack,
and the washing machine tucked into a corner.
The carpet is sufficiently elderly that no-one is precious about muddy boots!
This old sewing-pattern cupboard is SO useful for keeping all the
household paraphanalia in one easy-to-find place.
A quirky old set of pencil drawings with handwritten captions,
still in their original "economy" Passepartout frames.
I love aged writing, and all my old signs have have gathered here
giving the room a loosely grouped theme. . .
. . .Estate Agent's sign. . .Edwardian shop window price label. . .
. . .a Bournemouth hotel guest-room list. . .
. . .this old theatrical trunk makes a roomy boot box.
Lots more drawers for hats gloves scarves, walking socks.
(Unintentionally this pic looks a bit "posed"!)
Kit's feather cushion on top with a grand view over the back garden.
She prefers to do Sentry Duty in the warm!
