I've taken so many photos over the years and usually only a handful make it onto the website in any one post, so that means I have tons of unpublished leftover photos. Many of them are very good so I hate to just let them gather dust and not share.
So these are unpublished photos from the kitchens of an Amish home I visited in Aylmer, Ontario in Canada. Now this was unusual in the sense that these Amish had the last name of Martin, a very common Mennonite last name. It's a fairly common occurrence to have an Amish person convert to Mennonite, but unusual to have a Mennonite leave to become Amish. This Amish man converted so he could marry his bride.

Why do the Amish use plastic?
Same reason anyone else does: convenience, cost...there's really no reason why they wouldn't use plastic...
I do occasionally do some quilt posts, I'm not the most 'crafty' person, so I don't do a lot of those type of posts here, but, welcome, Susan!
If you have so may extra photos, why not publish a book with your photos and a small description of what is going on in the picture? I would buy it! Thanks Sheree Hyde
Sheree, it is not a bad idea at all...I think the only reason I wouldn't, though, is that color photo printing is super expensive, even with advances in printing technology....and especially in the small batches I'd need...I'll look into it, but I have a feeling we'd be talking a $50 book which is too much for most people.....but I will look into it, thanks for the suggestion!
