Whilst we were on honeymoon, Mr PS and I took a slight detour to visit Haworth in Yorkshire. Apart from it being a ten-minute drive from where he lived many years ago, it's also the home of the Bronte Parsonage Museum. The opportunity to visit where the Bronte sisters lived and wrote their classic novels was not to be missed. If you have the chance to visit the Parsonage, go. You can almost feel Heathcliff and Catherine's presence as you walk around the brooding village, surrounded by the moorland of Wuthering Heights.
What really made our visit special, was taking part in the re-creation of Wuthering Heights. Running from April 6th until December 31st, artist Clare Twomey is inviting visitors to be part of a hand written copy of Emily Bronte's famous novel.
Changing the subject, but sticking with books - when we were planning our wedding, I already knew I wanted something rather unique and different for my bouquet. I needed one that could travel with us on our long journey to the Isle of Skye and I wanted to be able to keep it. After a lot of research, I discovered bouquets and button holes made from book paper. What could be more perfect?
It took me a while to find a seller I was confident could make one I'd love, but I'll admit I still had some doubts before it arrived. I'd even promised a close friend that if it wasn't right, I'd switch to flowers. In the end, I needn't have worried.
