My friend Susan owns Hillside Homestead, an historic inn where she hosts farm stays and traditional meals. She is a fascinating woman who learned her old school skills during the several years she dressed in colonial costume and worked at Greenfield Village in Detroit, cooking over a wood burning stove, etc.
Farm cat Bina
The centerpiece of the kitchen, an enormous wood fired stove - it heated the whole first floor of the house
vintage cook books
Decorated risers of the stairs to the second floor, Susan said she has a love/hate relationship with this detail as it is not authentic or original, but nonetheless unique and pretty - I loved it
Susan is a master canner - this is just one shelf of her work
