MOUNT STUART HOUSE, ISLE OF BUTE



I was sorting through my closet, and I came across a lost memory card in a pocket of a bag I hadn't used in a lonnnng time. (It's amazing what you find in those sometimes, a lot of trash but there's treasures too!) I was THRILLED to find it was one of the cards from the Fife Regatta in 2008, photos I'd lost in a computer crash years ago.  The regatta is an epic trip, racing vintage sailboats for a week from island to island in the Firth of Clyde.  I had to share these photos from a wine party at Mount Stuart House, on the Isle of Bute in Scotland. This is where Stella McCartney got married.  I think she had the right idea.  If it were up to me I'd take the master suite with the glass breakfast room, and all my friends can have a wing of their own.  We'd meet for badminton and champagne on the lawn, then for grand banquets under the starry domed ceiling in the Marble Hall, where stained glass windows depict all the signs of the zodiac. How dreamy is this place?

and a one, and a two, and a one two three...

You should come to Finland and Helsinki and you would really soon notice that I don't wanna see snow ever again!!:D
It's crazy how it has snowed all the time in these past 3 years! And those photos in my blog they're really nothing, nothing, the situation is now even worse.. or should I say snowy!:D haha, thanks for your comment anyway!:)

Btw, these photos are so beautiful! I love those green plans and the church! Plans and gardens and old churches inspire me a lot!:)
