Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

18th Century oil on canvas lady from Massachusetts Estate

A very pleasant looking lady is on the way from an estate in Massachusetts.

She has no frame but her size is 25 x 30 which I have found to be not as difficult to locate, not to say that finding an 18th century frame here in Alabama is a common thing.

Her wrap appears to be earmine.  I like her slight dignified smile.  She should be here by next week.
