Truro Historical Society Highland House

I love old houses.  It's no wonder, therefore, that I bought an old house.  I've always been delighted by their quirky charm.  Touring old houses is actually a passion that Steve and I happily share.  So you can imagine our delight at stumbling upon the Truro Historical Society's Highland House.  The first floor is set up as a museum with cases full of historical artifacts and a brief history of the local shipping/fishing industry.  But I was most drawn to the stone fireplace and the gorgeous molded tin ceiling.

The second floor is a rabbit warren of themed bedrooms.  I particularly liked the painted dresser:

All in all a very sweet museum to visit.  We took a quick walk down the lane to the Truro lighthouse after the museum:

Inside the lighthouse were these kids coloring book pages...

...and you know what I love about them?  There are just 3 white lighthouses.  Every other version of the lighthouse imagines it as something totally different and I loooove that.  Why do we ever teach people to stop imagining?

Here's to imagination!


P.S. Tune into HSN today during the 10am and 6pm EST hours to see me demo sewing, serging, and the PTouch Embellish!
