My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear
unto my sayings. Let them not depart from
thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
For they are life unto those that find them,
and health to all their flesh.

  Beloved, I wish above all things 
and be in health, even as thy soul prosper
 that thou mayest prosper
Do You Know JESUS?

  1. Dearest Linnie: You need to stop by my blog and view my latest post. I have a "surprise" for you. :)

  2. Wow Linnie amazing pictures!! thanks for sharing all those yikes with all those tools though kind of scarey hehehe Love Heather

  3. Dearest Linne!!!

    I LOVE your tours that you give us. The photos of the most AUTHENTIC settings I have ever seen just call me into a history lesson. AND TO SEE THE MOUSEKINS there as well! Everyone looks fabulous by the hearth! MY GOODNESS, the medical practices of the day, what horror! But what a magnificent journal of our history dearest. SO WONDERFUL! And thank you again for your visit this weekend! Anita

  4. wow, this is amazing! Like truly stepping back in time. Thanks so much for sharing this!~

  5. Linnie,Thank you for your kind words on my painting.What I've heard for years about it being good therapy has been so true for me.There are about 10 of us in the relaxed Senior class,All cares seem to be gone as I paint.Your wonderful photos are so interesting and fun to look at.I could see me living in that home.I am now going to make sure I've seen the first part.Did they have the mouse family as part of their display? Blessings to you. Denise

  6. Dear Linnie,

    What an interesting place! I must admit, though, that the tools and pictures of surgeries give me the heebie jeebies!

    The Mousekins are so talented in the old time skills; they could set up their own historical museum. :)



  7. Hi Linnie,
    GREAT photos! As an antique dealer and collector, I just LOVE the one of the livery cupboard (with the cutouts).
    So glad you are getting my stays! They ARE a must for the 18thc. woman!
    They have Dutch linen tape for the lacing. If you need to lace them larger or looser, and the tape is too short, just get some 1/4 inch linen tape from Wm. Booth Draper or Burnley and Trowbridge, etc.
    Will be featuring posts on our own 'Revolutionary weekend' at Sturbridge this weekend, on my blog next week!
    Hugs and love,

  8. I am always thankful for those whom are devoted to keeping parts of living history alive for us.

  9. Dear Linnie and the Mousiekins,

    The hearth cooking implements, as well as the medical and apothecary items, were interesting to see! How nice the whole Mousiekin family looks enjoying Father Mousiekin playing the fiddle in front of the fire whilst Millie prepares a meal!

    Your friends,
    Diane and daughter Sarah and Tillie Tinkham and all the Mice at the Corgyncombe Courant

  10. This was such a neat post. We are studying this time period in our little homeschool. [o=

  11. Linnie,
    Thanks for featuring the open hearth cooking at Fort Niagara over the F and I weekend in July 2011- I am the 'cook' in the photo along with a few of my native friends who help out through out the weekend. A fun time with lots of laughter and an abundance of food!! The cooking implements are mine-most women ask for silver and gold from their husbands- I want iron and copper!!
    Thanks again- stop in and say hello in 2012!

  12. Hi Heather,
    SO GLAD you stopped by to say HI!
    I shall look for you in2012!!!
    Were you at the 12th Night Ball?

    Blessings, Linnie
