Sheltering Tree ~ Part 3 Autumn ~ Inspired by West Stow Anglo Saxon Village Trip

Sheltering Tree stamp set, Stampin' Up!

Good afternoon all!
We had a great day yesterday at West Stow Anglo Saxon Village. For those that aren't from this part of the country or have never been before, it is an archaeological site and open-air museum. There is evidence of human habitation at the site which stretches back to the Mesolithic period. There is lots to see and do and you can walk around the village and enter the dwellings and see how our ancestors lived.

We took Little Hippy plus her two stepsisters and had a lot of fun! The children really enjoyed walking around the collection of houses that make up the village:

We all had a go at dressing up in some Anglo Saxon clothing, too!

Not a great shot of me but I had to put this up! I love the simplicity of the dress but the contrasting vibrant colour:

 Mr Hippy tried on a replica of the Sutton Hoo mask:

Much fun was had by all.

It was the colours of this trip that inspired me for today's post. To stamp the leaves of the tree I used Calypso Coral, Hello Honey and Watermelon Wonder:
