Christmas Past

xmaspast-attic-textile-workers-opt Dennis Severs’ home is a time capsule of the Victorian era. He bought it in the 1970s and made few updates. His desire was to create a ‘still-life drama‘…as if each room were an oil painting. Touring this historical home at Christmastime makes it an even more profound and thoughtful experience.

Note- Look for open house Christmas tours in your area. I’ve been on several over the years and I’m so glad I went.
