I dug up an old photo of my daughter so that I could compare it to her daughter.
I think there is a remarkable resemblance!
Joe and I take the train into Boston to work each morning.
I get off at Bowdoin station in Beacon Hill
and this little tree is all alit for me
early on the morning of Christmas Eve
with a light snow falling ~
A few weeks ago my mum treated me to a visit to one of our favorite places.
The Isabella Stewart Gardener museum.
It was all decked for the holidays
and John Singer Sargent's painting of
Gretchen Osgood Warren and her daughter, Rachel
was on display in the Gothic room.
It is on temporary loan from the MFA.
It was painted in that room and we could see the chairs they sat in
and all of the other items that were in the painting.
Everything in the Isabella Stewart Museum must stay exactly as it is
per her wishes.
