Tot's Kentucky Home

Hello
I hope your week is going well, we are well into January and we are still waiting for winter to get here. In Chicago today was gorgeous! Bright sunshine and in the 50's, I even worked outside. I think it will be short lived but I have been saying that for two months now. Everyday that we have this fantastic weather only makes the winter shorter and that is fine by me.

I am finishing up my road trip with you today. I promised you pictures of Tot's  house and you won't be disappointed. She has such an eye for detail but more than that she is such a warm and loving person. I so enjoyed my time at her house.

.


Tot and Craig (her husband and partner) took us (Miss Donna and I)  to a great Mexican restaurant. We met her daughter Sarah there with her two beautiful children. The food and service was wonderful and we spent the whole evening laughing and having a great time.


The house has been featured in Country Living and also in the book they published. That was a few years ago and now Tot and Craig are redoing the whole house.
 She has changed her pallet to grays instead of white on the walls and it is gorgeous.


If you follow her blog, Time Worn Interiors you know they just put hardwood floors throughout.












She has an infinity for seashells and her collection is amazing.
I love them too, so my camera gravitated to them...



Especially the coral.


















They have gathered the most amazing collection of architecture I have ever seen.

Here  I caught Donna daydreaming...


And of course we had deep discussions... as girls often do!


Not to mention the French linen sheets we slept on... pure butter.


I loved these Mohair French chairs... if only I could have fit them into Donna's little VW...


Now... the studio. I really had a hard time leaving this room!












This was memorable... not because of all the beauty I was surrounded by but the beauty of friendship and love.


Thank you Tot, Thank you Donna...

Blessings
Rebecca

  8. R.E.,
    TOT is the tops when it comes to displays! Tell me...did y'all send out a memo detailing what to wear before going out to the house? Y'all all matched the decor perfectly. In fact...the three of y'all are the perfect accessories for a well dressed room.
    XOXO

  11. Rebecca,
    Wow 2 of my favorite people from blogland together in one of my favorite homes! You know how I feel about yours. Tot is a wonderful person, I really enjoyed spending time with her at the blog party one year. I loved her home before & the changes are wonderful. Love how she housed all her findings in glass jars. Note to self...steal that idea.
    Glad your trip was fun.
