Ordered this as a farewell present for my neighbour of over 20 years. She was in tears as it’s so bitter sweet for her moving on… It’s just a perfect reminder of the many happy years she had in the house. Thank you so much!
Ordered a sketch for my Nan’s birthday. She was moving house after 50 years and it was a perfect momento for her new home. She loved it!
I ordered a drawing of our house for my husband for our 12th anniversary. He hasn't seen it yet but I am delighted with the result and think he will be too!
