Today we went for a ride south down to Pueblo, Colorado.  We drove by the 37 room mansion built in 1893 which was the home of John A. and Margaret Thatcher.  I took a couple photos to share and will let you know they serve Afternoon Tea in the Carriage House for special events several times a year.

The home (museum) was not
 open to visitors today.

After noting how lush and green these photos are, I thought I better mention it is 10 degrees warmer in Pueblo than where I live and springtime was definitely advanced here.  Last night it even snowed a little during the night where I live!


  1. I just love visiting historic homes! This one is a beauty. Going to tea is already a special experience, but having tea in this type of setting really elevates the experience. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week.

  2. Wow that house looks like out of a story book. Shame you didn't get to go inside. Must be interesting to see what iti is like inside.
    I can't believe it is still snowing in your area. Looking forward to seeing your beautiful spring garden Bernideen.

    Hope you have a wonderful week

  3. Good Morning!
    This was a lovely surprise to see! As I have been there many times! Christmas is always a special treat! I will be coming up to visit your shop very soon! You have such a blessing to us ladies who love tea and teacups and all things lovely! And we adore a perfect little teapot! Blessings, Roxy

  4. I wish I lived close by so that I could attend the tea, Bernideen! It looks like a lovely spot.

  5. OMGOSH! I would LOVE to tour that place. It is always so interesting to see how they lived back then. xo Diana

  6. Hi my friend: You were right. My first cup was from England. I did not even know that Lefton was made in England too. I thought they were all from Japan. I have a good collection, I will have to check. Thanks for stopping by. I wish we could have looked inside this home. Looks fun. Have a great week. Hugs, Martha

  7. Lovely buildings. What a nice setting for tea!

  8. Beautiful buildings. I would love a tour!

  9. Wow, that lawn is almost as beautiful as the house! (Well, not really, but it is gorgeous!)
