Birthday at the Museum




Yesterday we had the pleasure of celebrating a milestone birthday with a good friend. She had chosen a local organic farm as the sight for the gathering.  The owners of this farm also have a private museum, coffee cafe and gift shop, all housed in a huge barn.




It proved to be a wonderful setting to mingle with other guests and to enjoy the museum as well.



















Family, friends, good food and a birthday cake made for a very pleasant afternoon. If it hadn't been raining we could have also enjoyed the olive grove and animals, including alpacas, sheep, cows, horses and poultry, all by the river.

Podziwiam pasję Twoich przyjaciół. Trzeba kochać takie rzeczy, żeby je z pewnością wiele lat zbierać. Są tam na pewno różne, które chciało by się mieć. Tort urodzinowy z pewnością był pyszny. Pozdrawiam.
I admire the passion of your friends. You have to love these things, so it is certainly many years to collect. There are certainly different, which would have wished. Birthday cake will be delicious. Yours.

What a lovely occasion and especially as it was such a treasure trove for the children to see all of the old objects. I used to have a little Brownie camera like the ones you showed when I was a young girl.

What a great idea for a setting - a good common ground for people to have something to talk about. I hope you are starting to feel a bit more on top of things healthwise. I 've got 3 little people under my wing today as it's pupil free day.

Debbie said...

what a great place, so many wonderful things to look at.

i remember those sewing machines!

Lisa said...

What neat pictures. So many lovely things to look at! Looks like a fun day.

Rick said...

Always SO many interesting things to see in museums - good that children were also taken by things from the past. It's good to stand back and reflect on what were once considered luxuries or indispensables. [my mother would love to get her hands on a Singer like that - she used to have one just like it].
