Up the Down Staircase

By Joline
This is the beautiful stairway in the center hall of the Wedding Cake House. The workmanship is so beautifully done, and all before power tools or even electricity. According to our guide, this type of exceptional wood working skills were typical of shipbuilders' homes so they could show their skill to visiting potential buyers. Makes sense.
This will be my last upload for a little while. I am having back surgery tomorrow which will limit me for about a month. I do hope to pop in an comment on yours though.

Super curves and lines in the woodwork and nice to have
that lovely wall painting of the landscape too.
(Tones well with the viewing b/g colour you have)

All the very best with that back surgery gal.
I didn't know you suffered.

Catch you again as soon as you're able.
