I wanted to go out after being in bed for so many days. So I dragged my sister and fiancé into the city to the historical society museum, a gorgeous Victorian mansion full of magnificent things! Let me show you some of them.
Below is one of my favorite things from the museum. They had this tiny table covered with crayons and with a pile of coloring pages of the United States presidents. This was hanging up on the wall above it:
|Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (artist unknown)|
After the museum, we headed down the street to see where its former Victorian owner made his fortune. Apparently he was the owner and founder of one of the first shopping malls in this country. It has been beautifully renovated since I was a kid (I was happy to see), and currently looks a little like a European outdoor market:
To the left is a charming little antique store that we went into. I got an antique key from the 1900s (1906, I think) and one of those lovely Pollyanna prisms (read: chandelier crystal). At the end of the hallway pictured and also to the left is a metaphysics shop. I picked up several stones there that I hope to wire wrap when I get some more of my favorite wire. Can't wait!
Here's hoping for a relatively healthy spring for everyone! <3
