The Plantation Desk

I bought a plantation desk. It is signed by stencil on the back Mitchell and Rammelsberg, Cincinnati, Ohio. They were in business together from 1847 until 1871 and are the company who made the bed in the Lincoln Bedroom in the White House. This desk has no flaws and is complete and looks right at home in the front log room. It's a bit more crowded now ( June 2012). This was taken at night when colors are rich. Here it is with the front lowered. The top bonnet will lift up to reveal storage. Still as sturdy as the day it was made.

Quilts in the sun

On sunny spring Saturdays, it is the custom to air out the quilts. Here are three of my favorites as seen from the front yard. The front porch of the old cabin is the perfect place to give them all a breath of fresh air.
