New England

A few more photos of the New England trip.  Above is Harbor Candy Shop in Ogunquit, ME.  One of the best candy shops in the country, in my opinion, and in the cutest town. 

 The streets of Marblehead, MA. 

 The houses are all so old.

 Most of them have plaques with the house history.

 Little church in Marblehead. 

 Another candy shop, this one in Salem.

 Harbor Sweets, also a great little candy shop.

 A few recent things I've picked up at estate sales and antique shows.

 Antique door plates - I've been trying to find some old ones, to replace a few missing ones.  These are solid brass with a pretty design.

 Some old books.

Beautiful Homes pamphlet from 1886.  It shows house blue prints from the late 1800's.  I've notice some similar style houses in Minneapolis, particularly in the older neighborhoods.
