"I will make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life."~~Elsie de Wolfe

enchantedengland:

   Trentham Hall is one of the “lost country houses” of England- magnificent historical manor houses that have fallen into disrepair or been demolished. Trentham Hall, on the fringes of Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire, had an extensive history as an Augustinian Priory, a convent, and housed the Dukes of Sutherland. (no, I don’t know where they live now. Maybe they are wandering aimlessly around Stoke peering into ceramics shoppes). All that remains is the garden, parts of buildings, and the parish church. 

   I am quite sorry this house was Lost but the overgrowth in this palatial archway is the most gorgeous example of beautiful decay EVER! I think it is perfect just as it is. (photo Peter Juerges on flickr)
