Happy Tuesday to you! On Saturday I headed south, to visit with some girlfriends that I originally got to know through blogland. Unfortunately, neither gals blog anymore but we do try to get together every three-six months to catch up. It was a gorgeous day and we went on a walking tour through the Historic Homes in West Longmont. This area was settled more than 100 years ago by pioneers from Chicago. The homes in this area are Craftsman, Queen Anne, Four Square, Farmhouse and many other variations. The tour was a fund raiser for a local charter school and in each home were arts and crafts. The area is centered around Thompson Park, where it is said the original woman ordered trees from Chicago, planted them and then each day walked to the river to get water for them. Many of the homes were decorated in period style; I also loved seeing individual touches throughout. This window frame is a great way to display family photos.
