Springhill visit

This is Springhill, a Plantation House built in 1660's by the Coyningham family from Scotland.

It is now owned by the National Trust and we visited it recently.

This is the drawing room

The dining room
 Mrs Charlotte Lenox-Coyningham who followed the fashion of the day avidly

 and purchased this rare basalt Wedgwood pottery in black

Tomorrow I'll share some more of the photos I took at the Costume museum at Springhill.

But for now, i leave you with best wishes for the day


  1. Top o the morning to ya (oh wait, it is nearly what 1 pm there, right?)--I have never seen black Wedgewood, how interesting.

    I can't wait to hear more. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you friend...Blessings

  2. Great place to visit !!!!

  3. The t shirt certainly made me smile. Love the black Wedgwood, I have never come across that before, amazing.

  4. Happy St. Pat's!

    That mansion is a wonder. What strange and rare pottery! And in the painting, I guess turbans were the rage of the day.

  6. Happy St.Paddys Day Christine!!!! What a lovely mansion, so elegant.Blessings Francine.
