This past weekend was another of Walker Homestead’s very hospitable open houses, a New England Christmas by the Hearthside. I managed to sneak away from the dyepots to spend an hour or so enjoying the scene which included many, many delicacies from the kitchen, warm fires, hosts in period costumes, Father Christmas and, of course, shopping opportunities.

Kris Casucci and her elves make wonderful seasonal garlands out of natural materials. Who can resist? And, this year, Pied Potter Hamelin and Garine Arakelian were on site with a roomful of their redware pottery. Yes, I succumbed to temptation. I thought you’d like to see a few pictures of the event. If you are in the area, it’s well worth putting it on your calendar for next year.
