When this Village Lane home was still new, one of its neighbors was a much smaller home. It was built with lowered knobs and windows to accommodate diminutive members of the Tuthill family. Addison and his sister Emma both stood under three feet tall. Their aunts, Cynthia, Lucretia, and Asenath were just slightly taller. They were descendants of one of Orient's founding families and were known to some as the Tiny Tuthills. P.T. Barnum crossed the Sound to visit in an effort to get the Tuthills to join his sideshow. Barnum brought gifts and General Tom Thumb to tell tales of traveling the world and meeting royalty as the smallest human alive. Addison was even smaller than Tom, but the Tuthills turned down the offer and returned to their quiet lives on Village Lane. Addison was a farmer who raised turnips, brussel sprouts, and potatoes, while Emma and her aunts were skilled seamstresses who were themselves said to be quite fashionable. The tiny home no longer stands, but visitors to the Oysterponds Historical Society Museum can see the furniture made for the Tuthills as well as the tiny pocket watch and walking stick Barnum brought as gifts. There is a photograph of a young Emma and an oil painting of Cynthia with rings on every finger, a satin dress, and an elaborate hairdo that may been designed so she appeared taller. Also preserved are Addison's miniature Parchesi pieces, Lucretia's sewing box, and Asenath's tiny silver thimble.

E da quel giorno mi è letteralmente cambiata la vita....❤️

My 80+ yr old auntie keeps giving me pieces of her antique, peach cut glass. I remember being with her when she'd find a piece in an antique store in WA or OR. While this is a wonderful gesture, it makes me feel sad too. Then there's the violets. My grandma could grow those beautifully and in every color. #mixedemotions #nostalgic #memories #aunts #grandmas #antique #antiques #cutglass #peachglass #violets #heirlooms #rememberwhen #familypieces #passeddown #patchworkacres #patchworkacresretreat #patchworkacresquiltretreatcenter
