This week we have our son and daughter-in-law visiting from California and I am taking a short break from blogging. We don't get to see them very often since they live on the opposite coast. We also have six family birthdays to celebrate in the coming week starting today with my mother-in-law and great nephew. Happy Birthday to Felicia and Henry!
|Orchard House, Concord MA|
On Tuesday, our son did a day of volunteer work at the Orchard House Museum (the home of Louisa May Alcott who wrote Little Women and many other books). You can find the website HERE to learn much more about this historic site.
We were able to enjoy a picnic lunch with him when he took a break from painting the inside of the new basement under the School of Philosophy building located on the grounds of Orchard House.
|Concord School of Philosophy|
You can read a little about the Concord Summer School of Philosophy HERE. The school was founded by Louisa May's father Amos Bronson Alcott and was one of the first adult summer schools in the United States.
There are lovely gardens full of flowers on the grounds. The photo at the top of this post is a close up shot of some of the pink phlox.
If you are a Silhouette Portrait or Cameo user, be sure to download this week's free image from the Silhouette Online Store. This week the freebie is a collection of images perfect for seaside adventures.
There is also a sale on subscriptions for the Silhouette - 20% off if you use the code "SCHOOL" when you sign up. The subscription greatly lowers the price of the individual images but you need to remember that it is an annual commitment - I wrote about some of the pros and cons and did a comparison of buying individual images vs. cartridges HERE.
There is also a 25% off sale on "School and Education" images and a 50% off sale on Licensed Designs this week. The promotion ends August 15th at 11:59 p.m. (mountain time).
I wonder how many of you read "Little Women" when you were younger? It was one of my very favorite books. There are several movie versions too - have you seen them? Do you prefer Katharine Hepburn or Winona Ryder as "Jo"?
