Warning - Nostalgia Overload!

Well, I suppose it will only be a nostalgia overload to those, like me, of a certain age!  Shortbread & Ginger fans - bear with me!

What a dresser!!!!!  How gorgeous is this wonderful crockery filled dresser.

What about this living room from the 50s - just reminds me so much of my Granny's house!  Is that why I felt that I wanted to go in, curl up on the sofa and sleep - I'd have to shift that cat out of the way first?  (Or was that down to the late night and too much wine the night before?)  Seriously - I wanted to live here.  If I thought I had only hours to live I'd want to spend them in this room - I even feel the tears starting just thinking about it - I must be seriously ... nostalgia prone (or something)!

All these photographs were taken at the Highland Folk Museum at Newtonmore.  They have lots of houses from different eras which have been brought and rebuilt on this site, complete with contents.  It would take me weeks to describe all the wonderful things that they have here (look out for a few more blog posts over the next few weeks).  Their attention to detail is amazing!  I loved this place so much.  I almost wore out my camera!

The Museum is set out over a couple of miles so there's a lot of walking, although they have a transport for those less able.  I know I often say this, but for fellow vintage fans - this really is the place to visit if you are ever in the area.

PS - Am I the only one who thinks that our new little Princess looks like the Queen?

Love, Liz

That living room is so sweet. Oh my gosh, that's the first thing my daughter and I said. The little baby looks like the queen.

I absolutely love those interiors. Near to us there is Avoncroft museum which has a fully furnished Pre Fab House which I can always imagine living in. Yes I thought Charlotte looked like the Queen. But did anyone else think she was being held in a strange way. Like a solid doll and not held like a baby like George was.
