Belvidere NJ Victorian Days
Know you guys enjoy house tours now and then, so this year I took a camera to Belvidere's Victorian Days and snapped a few.
This one first has the most amazing wallpaper on the ceiling EVER. It was all cut and pasted a piece at a time and it's been up there over 100 years (1896). (it wasn't quite so bright pink in person as it looks here - poor camera I guess).
(I'm still in the entrance, between 2 sort of parlor spaces)
Yes, that is their TV!
Dining Room ceiling!
This next house style is very rare in our area. It's a Spanish revival from 1929 with amazing tile work.
This floor is tile, not a rug.
I am in AWE of her Fiesta Ware collection!!! It was also on top of all the kitchen cabinets, this is the breakfast nook.
Other side of nook.
This green house has been in the same family for 3 generations. Many of the decorations they recently found in the attic and brought downstairs.
Gotta love the porch!
And the porch floor - original recently refinished.
More wallpaper. (nobody here worries about paint colors)
Guest room with some attic treasures.
That's all I have. Lots of crowds in the way.
Did anyone else go? It was such a beautiful day.
