1844 Pumpkin and Bittersweet

It's done!!! This is my latest original design, 1844 Pumpkin and Bittersweet. It is decorating my antique red stepback cupboard in my kitchen, surrounded by my collection of yellow ware bowls.

Circa 1844 Greek Revival Kitchen

Welcome to my circa 1844 kitchen! I live in the historic Horace Bogart Residence in the Village of Romeo. Horace Bogart was a wealthy merchant, who owned the Old Reliable Carriage Factory. He built carriages, sleighs and Conastoga wagons. I love to build a fire in the fireplace on a cold, blustry day while I am baking or dyeing wool for my primitive rugs.
