Birthday, Recital, and Bramwell Trip

We certainly have had a lot of fun things going on here.   Thursday we went down to Jessica’s.  We got 2 more gallon of fresh strawberries.  We put 1 gal. into the freezer and just enjoyed the other gallon.  Friday was Hubby’s birthday and the girls piano recital.  We celebrated Hubby’s birthday with burgers and cake.  Then got ready for the recital.  Saturday, the ladies from our church made a trip to Bramwell WV.   It is a town where the extremely rich coal barons lived.  Very fancy and extravagant houses.    The above picture shows the town from one of the houses.

Most of the houses had amazing lawns-huge.  The kind you know had to have several gardeners just to keep them looking nice.

Several houses had cooper sinks in the kitchen.  When the wealthy were living there, they all had servants to do the work.

I think every house had stained glass windows.  This one was in a bathroom.

Another house.  Altogether we toured 9 houses.  It took over 3 hrs to walk through them all.  On the third floor of one of the houses, there was a ballroom.  We did not get to see it though.

Every house had tables set with old dishes, Mrs. Faye.  You would have loved them.

The old furniture in these houses was amazing.  The wood floors, cabinets, everything.  I have so many pictures it was hard to choose which ones to show you first.  We had a great day! 

I hope each and every one of you had a great Mother’s Day.  God bless.
