I pulled one out of the archives for this week's Sepia Scenes, since what could be more appropriate for sepia than an old-time kitchen. This one is a model from a musuem about 40 minutes out of Victoria, BC in Canada. During a family trip to the Pacific Northwest (one of my favorite parts of the world) about two years ago Jay and I were lucky to be able to sneak off for a weekend in Victoria while my parents watched the kids. While we were there, we spent an afternoon hiking near the town of Sooke, and then stopped by this really great little museum, the Sooke Region Museum, which was full of models and diaramas and full-scale mockups which really made the history of the area come alive.
I love the way they've left a load of unfolded laundry in a basket on the counter - a timeless touch if ever there was one.
