We thought this was a good post to kick off Spring Cleaning Month (and this is not a scene from Harry Potter). There are so many details to capture when visiting a place like Hancock Shaker Village. One that we would like to copy one day is the abundant use of peg rail around the top of EVERY room...

These lines become part of the visual decor of the room while also doing endless duty as a place to hang anything from brooms to chairs to you-name-it.

When the Shakers cleaned up the room, they really liked to clear the floor. As a result, all their furniture was movable and much of it was meant to hang on these pegs.
