The Schafer Baillie Mansion is an exquisite Bed and Breakfast on Capitol Hill in Seattle–walking distance from Drizzle and Shine, my daughter’s eco boutique.
I wore my new gray Synergy top (fair-trade, made in Nepal) that I bought at Jean’s store. I love the hand-stitching and dolman 3/4 length sleeves.
Although the house has been renovated, it has kept its century-0ld charm. My favourite space is the sunroom where daylight pours in and bathes the room, an uplifting contrast to the dark, yet elegant, dining and living rooms.
We met Brenda, the friendly innkeeper with southern hospitality. She took us on a tour of the rooms and we spent some time in the library reading about the history of this luxurious mansion. Here’s the Photo Gallery Tour on their website.
I can imagine magnificent parties being hosted here in days gone by, a feeling of nostalgia overwhelms me.
Blooper … my photographer (AKA husband) was recording and didn’t know it.
