Being in the house was going back in time to my childhood and visiting my Grandma McQueen's farmhouse in Ohio. Fond memories of happy times I keep in my heart.
|The Christmas tree was adorned with hand-made ornaments.|
|Fragrant pomanders to make by the Christmas tree.|
|The stairway was a perfect spot for hanging the stockings.|
|Earlier someone was playing Christmas carols.|
|This photo of an early spin in is a treasure.|
|I was in this room on Saturday. It was very cold! |
(Notice the chamber pot--I remember those.)
On Sunday I was just outside this room near the kitchen.
|The dolly dishes are set up for a tea party across from me. |
My sister would have loved this! I think I heard her giggling...
|Sitting across from this window, I could watch the children playing on the kick sleds.|
|There was a lot of activity in the kitchen, which was warm from the wood stove. |
The aroma of baking was heavenly and included baked rice pudding, Lefse, ginger cookies, Krumkake, and cranberry-apple crumb topped pie!
|A fun picture of the Nisser preparing for Christmas.|
|Pine boughs decorated each doorway and window.|
|Maybe I will be able to come back when the weather permits to spin or paint on the porch.|
|In one of the bedrooms, visitors could make paper chains and ornaments.|
|Clothes for the little ones.|
|The well-dressed teddy bear was under the tree. Such a handsome little fellow.|
|The barn and out buildings.|
|I love my doorways.|
With some leftover yarn from the Ariana Shell I whipped up the Knitbot Simple Hat (slouchy style) for the shop.
