inspiration from the ulster folk and transport museum

The other week I took a trip to the Ulster Folk and Transport museum, it must have been about ten years since I have been and I have to say I will be back again! I had forgotten how brilliant it is, so many amazing things to look at.  As you can imagine I was particularly taken by all the old packaging and machinery.  I will definitely be working on some illustrations inspired by my visit!

Being the nostalgic type it made me want to go home and bake soda bread and light the fire - I also couldn’t resist stopping at the shop on the way home to get some peat for the truly authentic smell! Heaven.
