Cynthia has been a long time customer of Bradshaws and incorporates some of our favourite brands and products into her own styling and the work she does
for her clients. Bradshaws was excited to collaborate with Cynthia to curate a fall picnic scene that was a feast for the senses.

Cue Gone with the Wind, with the stunning backdrop of lingering fields of late summer harvest beyond the wooden fence and a majestic old tree that
was planted in 1888 that's presence is felt just as much as seen. If that glorious black walnut tree could talk, it could fill the pages of a beautiful
story of over 130 years of the changing of the seasons, and the many fall picnics it's seen.
Cynthia recently received a copy of a transcribed logbook from Eliza-Ann MacFarlane, one of the daughters of James who built Bannockburn. The
entry in the logbook is from 1887-1901 and has snippets of daily life. In an excerpt from 1888 Cynthia read "Father and Mother planted cherry and
walnut trees." Not only does it pinpoint the possible age of the tree but the date on the entry is May 5th which just so happens to be Cynthia
and Kent's wedding anniversary!
If you think Cynthia's country landscape is magical, you are right and it's made complete with a few show-stopper characters. Willow the miniature
pony, Ty the handsome doberman and Emitt the incredibly cute weenier dog, all living the country life dream together. Another member of the family
is their vintage 1938 Nash LaFayette, stunningly gorgeous and lovingly taken car of, Cynthia and Kent enjoy taking this cruiser out for country
