One Adventure

Hi all

One of my adventures while on break was going to Clarksville Missouri to visit Richard at the historical Cottrell / Elgin Cottrell Mansion.
.

I want you to look at Gina's blog Victorian Wanna Be to see one of my vacation adventures, Gina drove and we had such a good visit on our day trip.
Gina took lots of fun wonderful  pictures and so did Richard. he  posted on his facebook page also.


This is just an old 1800 sugar bowl  of mine I had to get in picture on my blog it is from the era of his mansion 1850's.
I am falling back in love with the Victorian years

    1. I didn't know what a" snood :was either,
      It has a long cupped hair net below the flowers to put your lovely long hair in
      Richard knows about anything pre civil war on , anything in the civil war era and time his home was built 1854?
      My sugar bowl is that time also

    1. Hi Susie

      I believe the green transferware sugar bowl to be early 1800's
