Playing the Music

It was too hot to do anything outside this past weekend but we managed to fit in a family wedding.

Charlie had to provide his own equipment which he carried in with the help of our son.

The wedding and reception took place in a 100-year-old mansion/museum in Pennsylvania.

We tucked Charlie into an alcove where he could see the bridal procession coming down the central staircase and the entire service.

Naturally Charlie was on hand with the music from the traditional wedding march to “L-O-V-E”.

I used my phone to take a few photos of interesting details in the mansion.

Beautiful cut glass doors.

There were lots of stained-glass windows but I especially liked the beveled, leaded windows.

I loved this large urn.

There were a pair of large repoussé urns on either side of the front hallway.

Charlie and I are exhausted. (And I did nothing.)

Next week: back to house projects.

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
