Tracy Savage art & afternoon tea

Yesterday I met a friend for her birthday outing and being as we both enjoy art & ceramics we visited Tracy Savage's studio in Hornsea which neither of us had been to before. I was familiar with Tracy's work which I love for its nostalgia and quirkiness so it was great to see huge canvasses of the little vintage caravans perched on cliff tops. 

You can't help but smile when you see the artwork and the humour which is hidden in some of the pieces. I was unable to afford anything much more than a few greeting cards but I did treat myself to a couple of birdie coffee cups. I could have gone mad with the lovely ceramics and the prices are quite reasonable buying direct from the artists.

The afternoon was rounded up with a visit to Wassand Hall where we had a delightful afternoon tea in the conservatory in the walled garden, mine was the lemon cake seen here, the homemade cakes are delish!
After refreshments we did the woodland walk which was spoilt by the amount of flies and bugs hovering in the humid air yesterday.

Hadn't noticed the wonderful statue of Pan before with the wicked glint in his eye!
