  1. Perhaps a few words, a clever and elegant arrangement, or recipe would be a wonderful trade. My father was born and his mother gave the Dr. a fresh chicken.
    I just posted the illustration….

  2. You have a very lovely home. I love the details on the top on the column (is that doric architecture?).

    Patricia’s illustration is very elegant.

  3. Hello and welcome Kathy, the capitals aren’t as plain as Doric and are not as ornate as Corinthian (no acanthus leaves scrolling upwards from the column.) They are some combination of the two. Whilst they are modern, they are copies of the ones found inside the house. Mrs. PvE has a very elegant hand, it’s true.
