One of My Favorite Places

We got to spend a few hours at Old Sturbridge Village on our weekend away.  It is one of my very favorite places in the world to play at being a photographer.   


This young lady was braiding straw, something the women would have done to make some extra money.  They would sell it in yards and hats and baskets would be made from it.


I love watching them dye wool but whew what a hot job!





The General Store's shelves are a visual delight.

What great nature shots. I love visiting places like this. I know they worked hard, but life seemed simpler.

Lovely photos! I like the ironic pic in the next post too.
I haven't been to Sturbridge village in a long time. But we visited Strawberry Bank in Portsmouth NH with dh's cousin and her dh when they visited New England last year. It was a lot of fun.

Thanks for commenting on my blog!

I can see why you like to go there and take photos. I love the picture of the yarns of wool and the one of those stacked store shelves.

I really want to visit there. I did once about 30 years ago and I am still charmed by the memory.
