W Is for Winterthur

I'm happy to say there's lots for "W." We're having a wonderful weekend in Wilmington, Delaware, and spent a beautiful afternoon at Winterthur. Winterthur is a museum of American decorative arts, surrounded by magnificent gardens and grounds. We had a tour of the museum and then visited an exhibit of costumes from Downton Abbey. Downton fans, I'm sorry you weren't with me, but I promise a full post with lots of pictures on the exhibit,

As ever thanks for visiting. I hope your weekend is equally wonderful.

Glad you are enjoying Winterthur. My sister and I did a tour of the Dupont mansions several years ago. Wonderful homes.

Many years ago I had the pleasure of visiting Winterthur with a friend of mine who lived in PA at the time. It was a wonderful place. Thanks for bringing back the memories.
