The Guest House

My daughter is coming home for her birthday today and is spending the weekend with her boyfriend at or guest house. I went down this morning to tidy up and get ready for their arrival. I wound the cuckoo clock. When the clock chimes, Hansel, Gretel and the Witch appear and it plays Bavarian music.


It is always Halloween at the guest house. This way, when I need a Halloween fix, I just come down here for a visit!


Potion bottles.


A with in a pumpkin string dispenser.


Pieces I picked up in Germany.


The kitchen.

An old apothecary cabinet hold glasses and dishes.


My Wurlitzer filled with my favorite old songs.


A sideboard from Belgium.


A matching sideboard on the other side.

More photos tomorrow. I was so busy I forgot to take shots of the birthday table!

I love your Guest House. Can I move in? :-) I like how you have many items from other countries that you have traveled to. And, there is so much detail everywhere you look. +++Can you tell me what kind of mixer you use when you make your breads. Thanks.

Happy Birthday to your daughter. Tell her to find a room at the Inn. I'm moving into the guest cottage. That's it. End of discussion. I hope you're helping other people decorate, too, because you have an exceptional eye. Hugs.
