I really like the jewelry. A bit pricey though.

A bit? More like VERY pricey! But since it is made from broken china that Laura owned, I'm guessing they're one of a kind.....but STILL!!! WHOA!! Yikes

Interesting, I don't think that I had ever seen that photo before!

Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum:

"Laura Ingalls Wilder's sesquicentennial continues to be celebrated frequently during 2017, but this year is also a landmark here on Rocky Ridge Farm. It was 60 years ago this month that plans were made to open the Wilder home for the first time. An open house was scheduled for May 1957. Kudos to Lewis D. Lichty for his leadership in this endeavor, to Rose Wilder Lane for her cooperation, and to the Mansfield people who supported this beginning. This photo of the house was very likely the first one taken for publicity use in April 1957, as the property was making a gentle transition from the Wilder family home to a museum in their honor."

Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum:

"Springtime at Rocky Ridge Farm is one of the best times to pay a visit to the Wilder Home. Dogwoods, apple blossoms, violets and leafing trees abound; many species were growing here when Almanzo, Laura and Rose lived on this land. Laura commented to Rose in a letter written on May 4, 1938, that "Trees are in full leaf now and the very light in the yard is green. It is so restful on the eyes." "

Can you believe they came all the way from Iowa?!?!  For the 45th year in a row???  What an amazing school program they have!!!    
Applause

Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum on May 16:


"Today we welcomed Coon Rapids-Bayard all the way from the great state of IOWA!! This is their 45th year to make the pilgrimage to Mansfield, Missouri to see where the Little House books were written. Enjoy some snapshots of the kids!"

One of the parents had this to say: "Thank you for the warm welcome you give our children every year! This year our youngest child is visiting and this was by far where she was most excited to go! I can see in the photo that she is definitely enjoying herself and it makes me thankful for everyone that helps to give our children this experience. Her father made this trip in 1974 and hearing our kids share and compare their experience with him is wonderful!"

Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum:

"A lesson for today: Dean Butler did a speaking appearance last week at Frankenmuth, Michigan's museum, where Laura's 150th is being celebrated. He brought up the pronunciation of Almanzo's name, citing the fact that the TV show "Little House on the Prairie" created the misnomer "Al MON zo." Laura's beloved husband was also called Manly, 'Manzo, and A.J.--but he was definitely Al MAN zo."

Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum:

"Thank you, Carol Wong, for sending us a picture of the Little House books as published in Hong Kong. And for good measure, here is FARMER BOY in Dutch. According to Harper Collins, the Little House books are distributed in 71 countries--both in English versions and in foreign languages and dialects."
