1800's home and garden pics taken by me

I had to repost this! I love it sooo much ;) Enjoy if you missed it the first time around:)Alyssa   
My love of Massachusetts in the 1800's will never tire.  I love the simple things and feel a sense of calm and inspiration.  Enjoy!

I've been in love with this garden since my first visit here in 5th grade. Do you think I can get my talented gardener (my husband) to replicate it?
And I need to build this table...It's still on my mind!

  1. that bedroom is really neat...really kinda Laura Ingalls. The garden, how would you get it perfectly round? I like this post. I like history. you live in a beautiful part of the country rich with history!

  2. I once visited Boston and Cape Cod and absolutely fell in LOVE with the houses!


  3. We certainly share the same love; old houses are what I love most about New England! ♥

  4. Hi Alyssa,sometimes I think I was born in the wrong century...
    Love the pics..xx

  5. I live in a small ranch home that I call "our cottage." It's a ranch with a farmer's porch and I love it. It's New England and it's home. I wouldn't have it any other way ;) Thanks for all of your comments and excuse my crooked photos! Can you tell which way my son was pulling on me on each shot? lol!

  6. Alyssa, Thanks for following my blog. It is always fun to find another "Massachusetts-er" in blogland. I am looking forward to reading yours too !

  7. Love everything in your post. I was born in the wrong century as well. However, I do love bathrooms more and more as the years go by! I think that talented husband and son can replicate that garden for you! Hint! Hint!

  8. I love the history in old homes. New England is beautiful.

  11. I've never been to the East Coast and really hope to do so soon. It looks so quaint and it's like you are stepping back in time. Great post!

  12. Hi there! I am a fellow massachusetts gal as well. I live in Rehoboth (near R.I.) and have a shop too. Where did you take the pix? Is it Plymouth Plantation?
