Yesterday I posted the most incredible bridal shower for my SIL.
It got long and I said I had a few pics of the house itself.
For those just joining in, this Tudor style home
was built in the early part of the 1900s.
It is GORGEOUS - with so many unique architectural details!
I was busy with the baby shower visiting
(and stupidly forgot my camera)
so had to use my phone....and didn't get nearly enough pics!
These dark shots don't do this lovely home justice!
It has beautiful terraces and gardens
and has an awesome conservatory room.
Almost every room had a unique fireplace,
some wood and some stone.
The lights were originally gas sconces, per the time period.
Remember Mrs. Patmore's and her assistant Daisy's
fear of electric lights on early Downtown Abbey?
Sure hating next season is the last season.
They seem like friends to me now, do you feel the same?
So many rooms had beautiful crystal chandeliers.
How I would have loved to have had more time
to look upon the gardens and grounds.
May have to just stay there sometime soon
now that it is a Bed and Breakfast
and get some more shots!
I love the old fashioned candlestick phone
sitting next to a modern laptop computer on this marvelous
old leather-topped half round desk...
the contrast is interesting to me.
The above pic is where we had the dining portion of
the baby shower luncheon -
this is how the room looks before set up.
(If you missed the baby shower post, just hit "older post" and it will take you there,)
As always, thank you for your visit.
