PROJECT 6 of #52PROJECTS Evolution Started in Year: 2015 Completion Year: 2024
It’s the little things . . . like thermal curtains in winter.
Finished a day late and late in posting, Project #6 was a quick resolution to the cold.
A few years after we draped the dining room exterior door with thermal curtains, we decided to also re-drape the window that shared the same wall. The existing curtains were not lined. Fast forward to 2024.
After a simple start, supposedly, my part-time handyman, full-time son determined more height, span, and hands were needed. Enter the fabulous Spiderman Handyman to take to the walls.
End result? Matching thermal curtains have been completed. Thanks, Spidey!
Quintessentially British, cheese wheel wedding/celebration cakes–usually with white roses involved– are the only cakes we make here at the White Rose Manor and only by special request (I am a baker, but not a talented piping decorator, so I do not claim it). Most often, we serve as the Bed & Breakfast lodging for guests or families and their small events up for up to 20 attendees. If you desire a small event like an intimate wedding, bridal shower, memorial service, etc., the White Rose Manor may be just right for you. If you need a cheese wheel cake, we can do that, too. Come to Lincolnton. You will love it!
Pictured here is one of our Cheshire Cakes. Produced here on a larger scale for approximately 120 people, this cheese wheel cake was featured at our 2023 Christmas High Tea as the table centerpiece and then portioned as gifts to our guests. While we can create several styles of scalable cheese wheel cakes for weddings, charcuteries, etc., many cheeses work well for this lovely, edible addition to your table.
Fun fact: “Cheshire is one of Britain’s oldest and finest cheeses.”
We had such a great time in Lincolnton! We loved exploring the area and learning the history of this little town. We had a blast celebrating the marriage of two of our favorite people at the Laboratory Mill. And we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the White Rose Manor.
We tried to bring a bit of ‘home’ to Lincolnton. According to this guest, we nailed it!
Thank you Allison and John for the enjoyable time in your lovely English-style Manor. My husband did not accompany me to England so did not know how it was there . . . just like this! Am so glad we could experience this together and we will be back and he will want to keep in touch. We’ll spread the word that Lincolnton has a lot to offer.
When you have beautiful roses like “Miss Peggy” (named for Peg Mauney who lived here), it is wonderful to find someone else who was in just the right place at just the right time for the show.
Waking up in my majestic bed in the Grandstaff Room, the daylight seeping through the blindings, beautiful roses catching my eye and the smell of good coffee seeping through from the kitchen below– I’m gonna miss all this so very much!
Thank you for making our stay so wonderful, Allison. I hope to come back again someday.
