As we arrived for our shift this morning, I asked the homeowner if she would mind if I took a few photos of her decorations ... she gratiously agreed. All of these photos are taken with my Canon Elph using available light, so please forgive the quality. Concentrate instead on the beautiful decorations and the incredibly homey quality of this room.
Every year, the family goes to the country and cuts a Virginia Pine for their Christmas Tree. I love the airy, Charlie Brown quality of this tree ... and the way it showcases the family's ornaments.
This portrait is of a Revolutionary War-era ancestor. You can count on seeing a hint of these lovely mantel decorations at my place during the next week.
Such wonderful vignettes! An antique walnut table, a Santa from Texas, a nautical painting of French ships, and antique chairs with needlepoint pug pillows blend together beautifully.
My three-hour shift flew by, as I related my information ... elaborating on it as necessary, of course. I love to do things like this, and I am very grateful to Miss Katherine for asking us to help with the tour.
Today was rainy, so it was a lousy day for camera equipment outside. Later this week, if I get a chance, I plan to take the dogs downtown for a walk and I will see if I can get some good photos of the beautiful outdoor decorations.
