I love visiting those places that harken back to another time.  I always wonder what life was like for them as I wander through the spaces.  I may have to visit this one.

Great info. I've never heard of this museum. BTW, I drove past your office this morning for the first time. I would have loved to stop by and say hello but I was with family. Next time, for sure.

Sounds like a lovely way to spend the afternoon.  I love antiques and bet I would just love an afternoon checking it out.

Geri it's a small museum but pretty nice and right in town.

Jill stop in anytime.  Maybe when it's not freezing we can do another meet up.

Tammy the tough thing is sometimes I see something in an antique store and I remember it being in my Mom's kitchen.
