The Elmwood Time Capsule

I'm having trouble finding just the right words to properly convey just how much happiness there is in my heart right now. I think I woke up from a dream this afternoon as I slowly wound my little car Eastward around the twisty back roads of New Hampshire. I spent my yesterday and this morning visiting the most charming and beautiful house I ever did see, with the two most beautiful and charming girls I could ever imagine existing.

Elmwood


Everything was perfect from the moment I opened the front door and saw Amy's little dress collection, and heard Paul Whiteman drifting around the rooms...

Amy's pretty lil frocks


I basically ran around the house on my tip toes like a little bebe in a candy shop taking pictures of everything. With my phone mind you, because I'm an idiot and forgot the battery/battery charger for Alice's little camera I've commandeered (I thought I'd charge it up a bit before I left, and instead I left without it!)

Sweet 'lil sink


I'm almost 100% sure that my time at Elmwood will have been the very best part of my summer. Canoe rides, garden flowers, bare feet and wooden floor boards. screen doors, fire flies and maybe a mosquito or two... I'm so happy I got to peek inside that wonderful little house and be part of Amy and Ginny's world!!

That house is truly amazing! Kind of what I'd always imagined GReen Gables to be like, or at least thats what those photos reminded me of!
