Doors Open 2018: Ross House

Neither Lottie nor Shirley have seen Ross house and it had been some time since I had last seen it, so we decided to make that our second stop on our Doors Open outing.  1

This little house was fairly grand in its day and was the first post office in the area.

There were a few people from a group that is interested in the early Selkirk Settlers.

Here are some of my favorite things in this little house.

There was a lovely lilac tree in bloom (my all time favorite flower) so I decided to take a picture of Lottie and Shirley and play with my photo app.

It’s like I am Van Gogh!

At this point we were hot and hungry.  Our big plans for a picnic on the grounds disintegrated in favor of eating in my air conditioned car!  This proved a good move as it gave us the strength in see one more venue.  7 Oaks House.

We have been to this house a few times. The little porch is nice.

If only I could draw…(wink wink…)

I liked the door bell.  You pull down on the lever…

…and the bell on the other side rings.

Just inside the door is this holder with this nice parasol/umbrella with the metallic handle.

I had been chatting with a friend on Facebook and we were talking about our favorite dish patterns. We both had to look up photos of each others favorite. When I walked into the room of the house, there was the pattern my friend had mentioned! I hope she gets to the house to see it for herself!

Next post will be about how I spent my Sunday for Doors Open.

    Again I am jealous of your group and the great venues you can visit. What a great house and very nice interior. You all look great and your Artsy shots are great!. That is my sisters favorite dish set and I haven’t seen that many pieces put together. Thanks so much for sharing.
