September in glass

Painted glass window at Strawberry Hill House

This wonderful illustration of the month of September was spotted on a recent visit to Horace Walpole’s Strawberry Hill House in Twickenham.  Walpole described this wonderfully eccentric building, with its incredible interiors as,

a small capricious house…built to please my own taste

A visit to Birmingham Cathedral reveals some breathtaking examples of stained glass a bit closer to home.  The Edward Burne-Jones windows will be the main focus for Heritage Open Day at the Cathedral on Friday 9 September and Mrs History will be there to help visitors create their own window hanging to bring some autumn colour into the home.
