Historical Home Tour


Earlier this month, I went on a Historical Home Tour
around Fairmount Park in the city of Philadephia.


  Welcome to Christmas ... done with simplistic elegrance.



 I love the decorations and the windows in the dining room at Lemon Hill
There are three big ones like this that can be removed to allow access to the wrap around porch overlooking the Schuylkill  River - imagine the parties that happened there.





A child's Christmas


 A woman designed this kitchen in Cedar Grove Mansion
 and efficiency of it (for its day) shows that.


 Beauty and wisdom from 1804!


Sweet doors at the Woodford Mansion

 
Merry Christmas!


Note: Winning Wednesday will return in January
