I've just returned from a 4-day trip to visit a friend in CT. This trip had three purposes: drag me out of the house, visit her and the 1740s house in which she lives, and show her how to use a pile of crafty stuff she scored at a yard sale. This post will be about the house and a few adventures, and I'll do a separate one about the crafty part.
[Please excuse the fact that I used the word "cool" in almost every sentence here.]
For starters, here is the house:
A few other cool things are the ghost doors in all doors leading upstairs (and there are a few):
Also, check this out:
One other feature: Indian Shutters:
A couple of other cool things ... there is a fish pond out back:
This is just one side of it, and you can't see the fish, but there are 8 fish - some koi, some regular pond gold fish, and all are named "Olivia", so we went out to see the Olivias. :)
The last house feature I'm going to share is her dogs. She works with the Malamute Rescue, so naturally she has Malamutes. May I introduce Charlotte:
We were mostly slugs while I was there, but we did have one adventure that I caused. I needed to go get new glasses before the end of the year (nothing like waiting until the last moment, eh?), so we went to ... The. Mall. ... ... I KNOW, and I survived! But it took so long for the eye exam and getting the frames and stuff that I took my friend to Mystic for lunch. See:
We ate at the Ancient Mariner, and had the BEST potato & bacon soup and pastrami sandwich. It really hit the spot! The first thing that caught my attention when we walked in was their decorations:
Check out this drink that we did not have:
A Bloody Mary with LOBSTAH! OMG, I must go back!
Okay, that's enough road trip sharing. I'll post some pics of our crafty sessions next.
Thanks for stopping by!
