Aloha to the Hammond Harwood House - the Jewel of Annapolis (part 2)

Continuing our tour of the Hammond Harwood House, the Jewel of Annapolis (link),

The museum proudly showcases the finest collection of colonial furniture in Maryland. With authentic works from Philadelphia, New York, Massachusetts, England, Ireland, and China, the collection represents a broad spectrum of 18th century artistic endeavors.

The ballroom entertains all ages, including a doll's tea party ...

... and classical music!

Garden clubs decorate the rooms for the holiday season ...

... one club included symbols of Maryland in the master bedroom ... 

... including the calico cat, Maryland's official feline.  The calico cat is the same color as the Maryland flag - black and gold.

The upstairs guest room offers sweet treats for overnight visitors ...

... including Santa!  What is your favorite sweet treat?  One randomly selected commenter from this week's posts wins a book choice from my convention stash.  Comments are open through Saturday, January 3, 10 pm in Baltimore.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, January 4.
