Ravenswood Victorian Yuletide Event

Hello Everyone,
 
I was so honored to be asked by the docents of Ravenswood Historic Estate to put my quilts on display during their Victorian Yuletide Christmas.   A beautiful, crisp morning in the vineyard greeted us as we arrived early to stage the quilts.  The first quilt I placed was my very first design, The House on Edgewood Lane.
 


Second up was Country Charmer.  It fit right into this country setting.


Spoken For is very shy, and preferred to be in the corner.


This quilt is called Christmas Windows by Brandywine Design.  I love putting it out every Christmas.


Mr. Joe marveled at the wood in the doors above Heritage.  So beautiful!


Madrigal was singing a song along with the Victrola.


Every bathroom needs to have a Grammy Square quilt to cover up the commode!


The master bedroom was decorated with For the Love of Baskets, and Emilie Elizabeth.


Lil' Orphan Scrappy had a bedroom all to herself.


The living room was so cozy.
 


Toyland Tree has it's own bed too.


The shoes under the bed was an amusing touch.


I spy a Party in the Garden quilt!


The house is charmed and charming.  It sat vacant and run down for years!  During that time, not one stained glass window was broken before the restoration took place.



The cottage is so inviting.




Mr. Joe and I walked through the Ravenswood grounds once the quilts were all settled in for the day.



This is the main house on the property.  I can only imagine the events held at this house throughout the decades.


This road leads to one of the old buildings from the original winery.



Not a cloud in the sky.

 
 The leaves aren't giving up their hold on the vines just yet.
 
 
 
I hope you all have a wonderful week preparing for Christmas.  I so enjoy the days leading up to the Holidays.....except for the shopping!  I'm headed out to finish that off today.  I love to wrap the presents, do some baking, send out cards, and listen to Christmas carols.  It's the most wonderful time of the year!  I feel a song coming on.

Soon,
Lynn
