Yesterday I went along with two other
bloggers (Gina and Janice) to take a
tour of the Elgin/Cottrell House on the
the Mississippi River town of Clarksville.
Every room in the house was vibrant in color and
held mostly authentic Victorian interiors. These
were just a few of the wonderful chandeliers:
These are pictures of Janice, Richard Cottrell,
the home owner
with his dog Buddy and Gina.
I caught Gina
enjoying a chocolate Richard put
out for us to enjoy!
The accessories in this house were amazing:
Richard made the Victorian Style Paper ornaments on this tree:
He designed and made this needlepoint
mantle scarf after finding a piece of an
actual Victorian one which inspired him:
Richard made the large center house
as a replicate
of his home
and others are Bethany Lowe.
Now (below) in the kitchen - what a lovely window!
The kitchen was cozy and warm:
And in the pantry off the kitchen:
And now to the entrance foyer of the home:
I loved this shelf with lovely vases in the upstairs bathroom:
