Cozy Autumn in 1664

Oh happy times as I dream of The House of the Seven Gables in Salem, Massachusetts or even the oldest house in Salem, which was built in 1664, known as the Pickman House.

Welcome to my kitchen friends. The candle is lit and the teapot is simmering.


  1. And what shall ye be cooking on the hearth?
    xo Susan

  2. Ah, dear Susan, for you we will enjoy shepherd's pie and apple tansy. Yum!


  3. mmmmmmmmmmm....may I humbly take a seat as well? I can smell the apples now Christine and they smell heavy and w*o*n*d*e*r*f*u*l

    ps...as you mentioned before, mabey taking up a small salter on some property there in Ore~ I think you need to talk Gregory into reporducting the 7 Gables there! Im sure he can whip one out in his spare time ;)

  4. Oooh, I love those houses! I am so envious of those who get to live daily in places so rich in history and beauty, although the prairie has its highpoints too. I would love to have a kitchen hearth...how cozy...with a corgi napping nearby of course!~

  5. Ah, Salem! I love it there. We pass through it frequently on our way to other places north of there.

    It is so beautiful in Southern New England right now. The autumn foliage is peaking here, but we have much raking to do this weekend. Yesterday I made the first casserole of the season. Autumn is just the best!

  6. Oh...and what shall we be enjoying from your hearth? Oh I see that dear Susan has asked that and you have answered it...Shepard's Pie and Apple Tansy, how wonderful, I shall draw my chair near the fire and join all of you. What a lovely time we shall have.


  7. I have yet to visit Salem..you must share more photos and tell us some scary stories ..!
