The Brandywine Museum of Art, Chadds Ford, PA

 

Dolores and I visited the Brandywine Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, PA for their Brandywine Christmas displays and events. We were there for the final day of the annual Critter sale. Critters are handmade Christmas ornaments created by the talented volunteers and the sales are part of the fund raising for the museum. There were many Christmas trees on display that were decorated with these ornaments. I will share some photographs in a future blog.

The Christmas music was outstanding and the displays included the remarkable Brandywine Railroad O-gauge model train display which features trains running on nearly 2,000 feet of track and includes more than 1,000 pieces, including locomotives, passenger and freight trains, and trolleys that pass through a small town, a farm, factories and even a carnival.  

We also enjoyed an enchanting antique Victorian dollhouse (circa 1900) which is a masterpiece of intricate detail and incredible craftsmanship. The eleven-room house is true to Victorian decor-cluttered rooms filled with overstuffed furniture, wax flowers, gilt mirrors, fringed cushions, and knickknacks--all made to scale. 

And, yes, we also enjoyed the art on exhibit. You may already know that this is the home museum of the Wyeth family of artists.

That Chrysanthemum (Single plant with over 1,000 blooms), seems like a miraculous impossibility, Roy.
