It's always fun discovering the hidden corners of western New York, with its dusty old houses, relics of former grandeur, as yet undiscovered by tourists, a magical place where you don't need a passport to go abroad. To Warsaw, for example, former home of, among others, the cowboy poet Earl Alonzo Brininstool. Here's the Wyoming County courthouse.
A place where lawyer hubby spent many happy hours. And opposite, a gingerbread mansion that once belonged to a lawyer colleague.
And now houses an arty crafty antiquey co-operative full of frothy folderol.
How's that for cool decor?
A superabundance of teapots.
Would that we still had afternoon tea. (Question: am I more likely to host this in Florida? Possibly. So more breakables to go south in sister-in-law's car.)
But what a magnificent library it would have been.
