On July 27 and 28 and 29, Claire and Morgan and I stayed close to Chipping Campden. We went to Meg Rivers Cakes for lunch, and peeked at the home and gift store connected to it.
We also visited The Court Barn:
Talented artists, designers and craftspeople have worked in and around Chipping Campden and the north Cotswolds since the time of the Arts and Crafts movement in the early 20th century. The Museum celebrates their lives and their skill.
I love the Court Barn. I went there three or four times this summer. Here are two of my favorite books, handmade by Katherine Adams, who lived from 1862 to 1952.
We walked around Chipping Campden a bit more, too. I miss you, Chipping Campden.
We also visited The Robert Welch Studio Shop in Chipping Campden. It has been there since 1969, and is his flagship store. Now you can buy his knives at Crate and Barrel! His pieces are so lovely.
Morgan's mom was Claire's first-grade teacher, and is my friend.
And Morgan is our friend, and we were very sad to say goodbye to her after such a fun week together.
