NOT JUST DESSERT
The original of this replica on tin was made for a royal banquet in London in 1851. Charming enough to go on a wall, serve petit fours to 10-year-olds, or for picnics. Other patterns available. Not for the dishwasher. $12. The Monogram Shop, 11 Newtown Lane, East Hampton.

Rumors swirled as more and more work was done in this huge ex-farm field overlooking the ocean. People tried to get a look at it. They flew over it and crept up from the beach to try see what was going on.
