So lovely to meet top Brontë expert and author SR Whitehead at the #Parsonage Haworth whilst researching my role as #CharlotteBrontë in Polly Teale's play (opening this Saturday @oasttheatre ).

A BIG Thank You to our ‘small city with a big heart’💙 —- you all made that ring true yesterday when I posted on Michael Clark’s FB group page ‘Milford CT, Then and Now’ asking for any info people may have on our ‘new’ home. We hadn’t been able to find more than 2 photos of the home, even though it is downtown and dates back to 1859. The amount of people posting comments and trying to help was so kind, really humbling, and tremendously helpful. Without that page (thanks Michael!), we wouldn’t have this booklet from the 1989 Garden Club house tour in our hands ( thanks Penny for dropping it off!) which gave us the name of the builder (had been really causing @jkranzcarpentry some anguish) along with all the other info that various citizens were offering us. thanks also to the Sopers- @dopeykat76 has sent us some wonderful photos of their time living there. We’ll continue to piece together the mystery of this centrally located home, with little to no visual past... 🙃- but really wanted to thank everyone for their efforts. It’s not lost on us!!! So happy to be among all of you! 💕.

Holy SMOKEs(!)... literally. 😊 @jkranzcarpentry found these items during the demo...seems fitting that the smokes found in an old church Parsonage would be called ‘Fatima’ 😉— also we think the half bottle of some type of ‘scalp lotion’ was for lice.. the other 2 were magnets tucked away on the side of the fridge.

From what we’ve heard, this is a rare sighting these days, yet used to happen all the time ——-ice skaters on the duck pond! 🦆❄️🧣⛸️ (📸taken from the living room window)

I was SO excited to do this massive confetti cannon shot with help from Claire (the lovely wedding coordinator at @theparsonageatdunmorepark and now pro with a confetti cannon release!) I left Carolyne and Jamie after capturing their first dance and set to party on and welcome the new year in style! What a way to start your married life! #carolynhenryphotography #weddingphotography #weddingphotographer #confetticannon #blackandwhite #whatamoment #theparsonage #scotwed #scottishweddings #brideandgroom

Marriage certificate of Charlotte Brontë and Arthur Bell Nicholls... no indication of her being a writer under 'rank or profession'

The back of the house has now been updated with a little window-refresher. Took out an odd small window on the 2nd floor, and gave the bump out on the first floor a more historically accurate look with the double hung windows vs. the casements. We’ve learned that this used to be a back porch that had extended the full length of the house. At some point, they shortened it and enclosed it. Swipe to see the ‘before’ and ‘during’ of this part of the project. .
