ORIGINAL BRAYTON HOME: BRAYTON HALL, ENGLAND


Have I mentioned that the Brayton Family who built my home, the Brayton Homestead, in 1796, came from England where they owned Brayton Hall?
Sadly,the estate is mostly gone but there is a lovely hotel and golf course. Even the cows are beautiful.


While researching details on the house, I also discovered this picture of the barn; even the animal's towels are
 monogrammed. Will build a barn in the future!
 Enjoy...

Now that is what you would call fancy living. Monograms on the animal towels.

It would be great if you could buy that first picture. That is a nice image of the house and the cows.

A lovely history to share. the towels are a hoot. The life of wealth and leisure is always interesting. Love the photos.
