Why not record your house for posterity in a memorable way like Baron Kuner did in 1760 of Memmingen, his country estate in Kunersberg -paint it on a platter. Of course, he owned his own faience pottery factory which helped! Have you done anything to record your estate?

Wonderful. I love it. I do have a wonderful rendering by "Schematic Life" and now will need a new one with the after addition. I do love the charm of this platter.

I always think it wise to recall it in some form or another. My mother once did our rabling 19th century farmhouse in crosstitch. It turned out beautifully

I have sometimes made a sketch that featured some part of my house for my Christmas card. But a set of plates would be lots of fun!

wow, what an estate! my house would actually fit perfectly on that tea cup you gifted me! hah!!!
i can't imagine how gorgeous this must be in person. unreal.

If I had an estate like that to commemorate, you can be sure I'd have its portrait painted. But I don't, so for the last thirty years, I've been painting my own rooms instead. Everybody should do this. Here's my living room as it was 25 years ago.

That is a very cool idea! Certainly does put a whole new spin on the saying "drinks on the house!"
