She must be enormously talented, the paintings and curtains and rugs are to die for!

I have been through this album a number of times and each visit I find even more little details. A superb house, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful photos Rosemary.

When the mummy is pushed in, the panel slides down and the painting then is placed on the two nails, thus concealing the opening The Escutcheon Davenport is pushed back into place and the secret is completely hidden.

What a talented lady! She has created a true gem of a house. This ingenious hidden compartment with its suprise resident is wonderfully humorous.

I've looked, not studied in depth yet, Rosemary and yes, this is a really beautiful and loved house with lots of my own hobbies in it at the fore,it's a very special house. I'll go back for a longer look when I get home from work...

For some reason, I am unable to edit these pictures, so cannot put them in the correct order or give the comments on the contents, as is usually done. This is an amazing and unique house, furnished with some of the best furniture from artisans who are now retired. All the floors and curtains were made by the owner. All the paintings are done by her. All the carpets - beautiful carpets, are stitched by her. The Egyptian room with the secret panel, the mummy - all made by her. The lovely panelling her work. The bookshelves and the books - her work. The re-done QA footstool her work. Sadly the basement, with wonderful items waiting to be placed. is unfinished, due to ill-health. When I first saw this house some years ago, I was not so "educated"about skills and makers as I am now - thanks to DHP&P. Now that I am and can identify most pieces and am aware of the time and skill it takes to make a carpet, I am so impressed by this house. There is even a John Finn desk - a maker one rarely sees. Maybe one day I will be able to edit this album but meantime, you must amble through it and make your own decisions on what is what!
