I want one of these!

I just had to share… isn’t this the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?

I want one, to go on my desk for writing inspiration.

Also of interest… many of use who love to read and write fiction set in England fantasize about the perfect English village, knowing full well that we have to set our world in a historical period (Regency, Georgian) to make our story believable.

However… it appears that there is still an English village – church, shops, manor house etc., – surviving, and it is called Chettle, in Dorset! Read this article in the Daily Mail!

Cool, how the owners are as committed to the village as the rest of the people who live there!
