Great anniversary gift

Lovely keepsake

I had wanted a trio of images of our three homes for a while and finally was able to save enough to warrant the purchase. I'm so glad I did. It's lovely to have a reminder of our homes in our hallway, I am finding myself standing and remembering times spent in them.

Hi Rachel,
So glad you like the illustrations of your past homes. You are so right, it's all too easy to forget all the special moments spent in a place. Glad we could create something for you to keep the memories alive.

Have a lovely weekend, and thanks for taking the time to write a review. Makes all the difference to the team here in the studio and working remotely to know we are doing a good job.
