Over Thanksgiving weekend, my family and I took a trip down to Detroit (technically Grosse Pointe Shores) to visit the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House. Edsel was the only son of Henry Ford. He raised his family of four children in this mansion on the shores of Lake St. Clair.
This is the gatehouse and garage, where the cars (all Fords, of course) were kept.
This is the playhouse given to Edsel and Eleanor's only daughter, Josephine, on her seventh birthday.
This is the house. It was built in 1927 and is about 20,000 square feet.
This is the one picture I snapped of the interior before I was told that I couldn't take pictures inside the house.
The house was fully decked out for Christmas. This is a glimpse of one of the many Christmas trees, viewed through one of the many leaded glass windows.
Saturday Snapshot is hosted by West Metro Mommy.
My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
