Orchard House

House of my girlhood dreams -- oh to be one of the March sisters!
Surely one of the best loved houses in America!
Orchard House ~ Concord, Massachusetts ~ Setting for Little Women

Favorite lines from Louisa May Alcott:

"Help one another is part of the religion of our sisterhood."
from An Old-Fashioned Girl, Chapter 13, "The Sunny Side"

"Housekeeping ain't no joke."
from Little Women, Chapter 11, "Experiments"

Here's a more romantic view of tidying up,
my girlish idea of what it would be
like to live in charming Orchard House!
Thanks to my brother Aaron for giving me
this little tray back when we were kids
