An invite into an late 1700s home













Hello everyone, Just thought I'd tell you about one of our encounters with a wonderful gentleman artist names Edward Brown. We had met him when we went to this really wonderful old mill that had been redone into a restaurant. It was amazing! Just put this into your imagination.....upon opening the door to the restaurant being greeted with a wonderful log cabin smokey scent, then add dimmly lit candle lites all around and the wooden walls and floors as a backdrop....WOW! Anyways, we were admiring the mill and atmosphere of this place and my husband happened to get up and go to the end of the bar and introduced himself to this kind older man sitting by himself admiring the conversations unfolding by others. The man and Ross had exchanged very simular interests in old structures and of course the mill. I was introduced to him, he is a very colorful person. He invited us to his home to give us a tour. Wow, it had a walk in hearth fireplace that had a crackling fire. And anyways lots of interesting pcs to boot. One I took a picture of was this wall hanging pc which was a solid pewter rabbit upsidedown on a wooden plaque. I never seen anything of its kind. So enjoy a peek into his home which he generously let me take pics of our tour. And I took his picture also. Hope you enjoyed my ramblings.
