We recently presented our program,
'DRESSING A COLONIAL LADY'
For professor Dr. Dane Morrison's advanced degree history class at SALEM STATE UNIVERSITY, SALEM, MASSACHUSETTS~
In a state of '18thc. undress', with 'bedgown' over shift, stays, and pocket hoops, I am ready to leave for our program at the university...
Our program was a big success, and we were delighted to be able to present it to Dr. Morrison's graduate students~
HERE IS A REALLY LOVELY EMAIL WE RECEIVED RECENTLY~
(Aww....Thank you so much D., in New York~)
Dear Mary and Adam,
Thank you so much for sending the photos of the document box. I am so
excited...but truly, your antiques are so pristine. They are
I saw the pictures of your upstairs spare room....it will be just
beautiful. I love the way you both put the beams up...the room will be
spectacular. I just love what you and Adam have done. The tiny leaded
window that you put in the wall of the stairway was lovely.
Your ideas are amazing. You both are so talented.
I just went on your webpage to see your projects. I am absolutely
blown away. First of all, your bed is done so well it looks
original...I mean it.
The carvings on the headboard are so precise, I
love your bed more,by far, than the picture you have from
the UK. Your bed was made with such skill that it really looks like it
all came from the same period. You both have outdone
The spare bedroom is just lovely. The beams make the room. You did
such a wonderful job putting the room back together
that I know it will be one of your best projects. Your home is so warm
and cozy and unique. Every where you look there is
something precious, and something that you made with your own hands
like skilled carpenters. There is such a feeling in
your home as if you both have hugged it. I know that sounds
ridiculous, but this home is so very special. I love the tones of
wood in your home. Your antiques are so spectacular (carvings) that I
look at your pictures in such awe...people dream
of homes like yours. I know that special feeling that your home has
because I have been in your home and it was such
a special memory for us....I feel honored that I have seen a lot of
your work myself. You don't receive credit that
you both deserve. You both are so talented....God bless you both;
thank you for bringing this home and your work to so
many of us.
Take care of yourselves and enjoy your old fashioned oven you made
outdoors. It is so hard to believe that you could make such
a working oven....you should be published. Every idea you and Adam
have seems almost impossible to achieve and yet, you both
dig your heels in, study, and do it. What a couple! I wonder if Early
American Life would be interested in seeing your home again
with all that you have done? It is a treasure....I mean that, your
home is just a treasure.
FROM A NICE NOTE WE RECEIVED~
"...You guys are so different and unique and your house is just the BEST because of it...~J.P."

Below is just one of many letters we have recieved from guests from other parts of the country, to our home~
"Hi Mary and Adam, oh my gosh what a perfect day! It was so much fun meeting you both and touring your fantastic home! In every room we entered we could feel the love and care you have brought to this lovely home! And it is truly a home not just a house set up like a museum. The lunch...no words. It was not only the best food we have had on the trip, we both agree that it was the best lunch we have had in years. The scenery along the quaint country roads was beautiful especially the old graveyards. Thanks so much for taking the time to make our visit so special. This day has been the highlight of our trip. Love, Sue and Mary."
