One of my favorite places to visit is Mount Vernon. I tend to love historical things anyway and the home and gardens of George Washington have always been intriguing to me.
On a recent trip during the 12 days of Christmas, which is still celebrated there from Dec 25th to Epiphany, (because once upon a time we all knew when Christmas was, and thankfully they like to be historically accurate), I decided to photograph the property with a vintage feel.
Part of me would still love to live in the Little House on the Prairie days, (with indoor plumbing and central heating/cooling of course). When I was little, I use to have a long prairie skirt that my mother made me and that I loved to wear, imaging myself living in a cabin surrounded by lots of fields that I could explore and play in.
So here are my images of Mount Vernon in winter. Hope they transport you too back in time. I highly recommend a visit there if you’ve never been. Enjoy!
