I love the details of a person's life - how they lived, what they wore, how did they cook, what did they cook. I should have been an anthropologist. I guess I'm an amateur one!
Jamestown is early 1600's. Williamsburg and Yorktown are 1770's.
I am so much like you! I think I passed that gene down to both of my daughters too because we all love stuff like that. (Maybe their reading the American Girl stories helped a bit too.)ReplyDelete
My favorite shots are the ones from Williamsburg. I'm just an old soul in a not so old body.
Oh, what treasures! I so thank you for sharing the tour!ReplyDelete
Nice to see these things that draw your eye. I especially like the delft tiles as i love anything Dutch and tiles such as this always remind me of the story of Heidi as there were tiles around the stove at the house down in the village, I think. I even collected some and arranged them as a back splash for my stove one time. Loved it!ReplyDelete
I also tend to be drawn. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Oh that Delft tile! That silver tea set! The lovely dining table at the Peyton Randolph house! Swoon!ReplyDelete
