A William Morris celebration

On this day in 1834 a true genius was born. I give thanks every day for the amazing and beautiful designs of William Morris. Below is a self portrait at the age of 22.....
 Aged 23...........
 Aged 53.....those years of hard work are showing. This is a portrait by Frederick Hollyer and my most favourite image of Morris......
Lots of sites will be celebrating "Topsy's" birthday today including Red House and I did not realise Morris purchased the piece of land to build Red House on his actual birthday! I can't wait to return to his two homes later this year.....
