  1. Gosh, these are amazing It makes me think of how people strive to have more and more and then less and less becomes very appealing. But there was a lot of hardship associated with these homes.

  9. Lovely, lovely. And all those pretty items everywhere. I always enjoy going to these kinds of museums, admire the people of the past and their ingenious way of coping. And than…return happily to our modern home with kitchen appliances and real bathrooms ;0)

    These are incredible photographs, Linda! Why am I missing you? It seems you are not in my reader. Isn’t that special? Thank you for the work you put into this post. I really enjoyed it!!!! Love, Amy

    • I don’t think we’re the only ones experiencing the case of the missing posts in the reader, Amy! I’ve noticed ones missing from mine and I’ve read others complaining about the same thing. Ah, technology, ain’t it grand! πŸ™‚

      • AmyRose says:
