This is the pretty redware plate Bonnie gave me as a thank you for doing all the driving.
Here are a few of the very old colonial homes on the road into Frye's Measure Mill in Wilton, NH. For me, part of the allure of going to Frye's has always been the drive through the countryside with the really old homes, stone walls, farm land and rural setting. In the winter, it's easy to imagine how isolated the original residents would have been with just handful of houses in the this area. The stone walls rising above the snow would be the only marker between field and roads. In the fall, the foliage is just the best - a canopy of warm colors. In the spring, there are huge mountain laurel, wild forsythia, and lilac bushes in bloom and in the summer it is green and lush and it is so quiet.
This old home has been added on several times over the generations and it is gorgeous.
I didn't even get the barn/garage addition on the right. It's huge!
The front bobbin, little hanging bowl and basket were all good finds!
And I finally have a slaw cutter. I have been looking for one at a decent price for ages!
I have to be honest - I am not sorry to see summer end. Except for the last week or so, the weather was horrid most of the time. But on the bright side, being stuck inside, I spent more time exploring all the wonderful blogs out there and meeting more wonderful gals. They say there is always a bright side to every bad situation and meeting and getting to know
I hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend.
