Summer Place - update 9th November

by kingfisher68(2) » Fri Nov 03, 2017 11:46 am

Another John Hassall design which I started on 1st November

The middle is the porch so started there

PS I thought the name Summer Place was familiar but couldn't think why until I realised I was humming 'There's a Summer Place'. A popular tune from way back when!

Such a beautiful cottage and a nice start! I especially like the poppies in the foreground.

Now you have started me off There's a Summer Place - darn it. Oh well I will survive and just have to superimpose another tune over it.

A really good start on another lovely row of cottages. Well Done.

That is a beautiful start and I don't think I know the song, so the ear worm is not here in VT :)

That's because you are too young to remember the movie.
