This first table was in a log cabin.
This was taken in the House of Seven Gables- a gorgeous 2 story- the walls are all heart of pine. (picture of house is a bit farther down.)
I am hoping someone can tell me what this is? I am thinking some sort of butter bell? Not sure.
We were told by the guide, that a wealthy family living in this home would have several sets of dishes. This one had a peacock or some other bird, therefore it was used for poultry. There were other plates decorated with fish- for eating fish!
This is the parlor were guests were received for tea.
Love the lace tablecloth!
This is the House of Seven Gables.
Another house in the park.
Pretty little church!
The day before this picture was taken, we had torrential rains and it was very muddy and puddly.
The House of Seven Gables had a bathroom, but I guess not all houses did back then! (I remember having to use my great-grandmother's outhouse when I was a teen and that was waaayy after the turn of the 20th century!! 3/4 of the century had passed, thank you!)
Hubs took a pic or two of me!
We had a good time! Thought this made for a little bit different tablescape post. As always, thanks to our hostess, Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for giving this tablescape party every week. Congratulations on the 155th post. I have participatedquite often since the 60th week!
