Today, my mom and I visited Concord!
We visited the Colonial Inn (allegedly haunted), the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery (where all the authors are buried), the diner, Orchard House, and some antique stores.
We've been a couple of times in the past, but I think this is the perfect time of year to visit!
The Colonial Inn, where the haunted room lives. :)
The ladies working at the inn let us visit the room.
We ate at the main street diner.
A 19th century Amanda!! :)
At Authors' Ridge in the Sleepy Hollow cemetery.
Henry David Thoreau. Pens, fruit, and a pumpkin have been left on his grave.
Giving a pine bough to Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Writing down my favorite quote by him.
"every word was once an animal."
Louisa May Alcott's grave: covered in pens, pennies, and pink glitter.
and also a bird's nest with a brooch placed in the middle. I thought the things that people left for her were very sweet and personal. I remember when I visited Emily Dickinson's grave in Amherst, people had sprinkled glitter on her grave as well. I like it.
At the Alcott's house.
the barn/school in the backyard.
Things from Concord today: swan spelling cards from the 1800s and wooden blue jay (early birthday presents from mom!), old brass pin-backs, and 25 cents-a-sheet stickers from the Alcott gift shop. Yay!
I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend. The Brown project has been taking up all my art time, but beginning with November I'll have more art to show you! Enjoy the fall weather!
