It's been a busy couple of days. I met up with Visual Vamp and her husband on Thursday night for a lovely dinner. They are in Baltimore from New Orleans to teach a series of tango classes around the city. I will also be having breakfast with them on Sunday morning and then taking them to Book Thing. They are staying in a great little area that I have written about a few times.
Today, I spent the morning at the Maryland Historical Society beginning research on a book I've been commissioned to write. MHS is the repository for the papers pertaining to a number of historic properties, including this one, beginning in 1650. They also have a gorgeous collection of Maryland silver, especially Kirk and Stieff. It's just spectacular and I spent lots of time looking at it, and salivating!
One of the other things I found was a copy of a photograph of Tivoli House, where I work, probably from the early 1900's. It looks very different. The back porch is still there, but the side porches are gone. I now know the source of the image and can get a copy for our archives. Whatever you are doing and where-ever you are, I hope you're having a lovely day!
