▌♥ ▌& Oaklands Historic House Museum

Went to Oaklands Historic House Museum yesterday with my friend Diana. It was pretty interesting, and our guide was able to answer all our many questions. I now covet these sofas they have that have three distinct upholstered backs, which I have just this second learned are called medallion backs, like this (only theirs had red patterned upholstery).

I had taken the day off for Canada Day (it just feels wrong to be at work). I joked on Facebook that I was going to celebrate by eating maple cookies and crying and rocking myself silently, and I did indeed end up having maple cookies, which Alan got for me, but despite my predictions I had a lovely day. I’m spending today writing, for my sins.

Speaking of writing, my friend Eleonore Schönmaier has just had a beautiful poem in Prairie Schooner.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a sofa like that. It’s very posh and would be really lovely with embroidery on the backs.

    Also, that is a lovely poem ad I’m glad you had a nice Canada Day 🙂
