colonial days

So this is coming a little late, but forgive me…it’s been a busy month!

On Christmas Eve, hubby and I visited Colonial Williamsburg with my parents for the afternoon. We needed to pick up a couple last minute gifts at the nearby outlet stores (and maybe a few snacks for ourselves from Harry & David…yum!), so we thought we would go into town so I could take a few pictures with my early Christmas present (LOVE my camera from my hubby!).

The colors of this door with the contrast in the wreath and the warm lighting…love.

I spent most of my life before college in Northern Virginia so this was definitely not my first trip to Williamsburg; in Virginia, school field trips tend to be in places like this, Jamestown and various locations in DC. (We were very lucky to be so close to these places!) But even so, the beauty of it never gets old. And I love feeling like we’ve stepped back to a simpler time, even if only for an hour or so.

Please forgive the photo dump…I narrowed it down the best I could!

    Grace, your photographs are breathtaking! The ribbons on the bonnets blowing in the breeze, the soft light on the skeins of embroidery yarn and the bell jars all in a row have to be my favorites, but each of them are works of art. You have a gift…and I don’t just mean your camera! I look forward to seeing more of your work.
