Amish Country Day Two: Inside an Amish House

So. I am a bit overdue with this. In fact, I have been back to Amish country twice since the original post. Whoops.

Anyway, I figure I should on occasion finish what I started…

So, on the second day I wanted to visit an Amsih house. This was an Amish styled house – we didn’t just turn up to a random person’s house. Not this time, anyway. We took a tour of the house, the barn and the school house.

This is the garden outside. I thought it was really quaint and pretty.

I believe this was the washroom.

In some Amish orders, dolls don’t have faces to avoid making graven images.Image

Bedroom. The beds looked so snuggly.ImageImage

Super glad I don’t have to try and cook  every day in a kitchen like this. On the other hand, I’ll happily eat Amish food forever…

The craftsmanship of everything is amazing.

I really love Amish country. It is so peaceful and quiet and welcoming. I will find myself there a few times I suspect!

    I’m still waiting to be taken to visit an Amish village etc, but Hubby has told me all about the craftsmanship of the items they make. They last a lifetime and I would buy some if I had the money – including a quilt! I want a huge quilt!
