Plum Orchard is a mansion built by the Carnegie family on Cumberland Island, a wild, undeveloped island off the south coast of Georgia.  Trae and I are on the island for Thanksgiving, and we got a tour of the old mansion, thanks to a volunteer tour guide on duty. It's been a few years since I've been inside it, and what struck me most this time was all these beautiful wallpapers!
