Wouldn’t you like to snuggle up with a good book in a “bed in a closet” on a cold winter night?! I’m not so sure about that Dutch head gear though!
Women’s work was definitely harder back then, but I do love the craftsmanship of things like this treadle sewing machine and weaving loom. And the corn husk dolls at the quilting frame….adorable!
The mother framed by this Dutch lace on the window reminded me of my own mother and how she would have loved to be out and about at Pella Tulip Days!
