I was cleaning out the pictures in my LightRoom file and came across these pictures around the UVA campus that I realized I never shared here on the blog. If you’re ever in Charlottesville, VA, make sure you take an afternoon to stroll around the grounds of the University of Virginia. The school was designed by Thomas Jefferson, so it is stunning down to the last detail.
I especially love the dorms and professor’s housing that line the lawn.
The doors, windows, shutters, columns, porches, porch rails, transoms, shutters, the symmetry….just get me a spoon, so I can eat them up!
One of the most beautiful aspects of Jefferson’s designs, is how he uses arches and columns to draw the eye through a space. His architecture looks amazing no matter which angle you’re viewing it from.
I hope you find it as inspiring as I do.
And, just a head’s up for those who have been waiting to shop my Lucketts leftovers… As I’ve been recovering from my surgery, Kriste has been busy photographing and listing all of our leftover ironstone, so we can have one large online sale. That sale, which I have been jokingly referring to as the “Lucketts Leftover Ironstone Extravaganza”, will be happening this Wednesday, July 8, 2015, with the listings going live at 8:00 pm EST.
Just click on the shop tab in the nav bar at the top of the page. I’ll post some reminders as well.
We mostly have tureens, sets of plates, lids and gravy boats, but there is a good variety and everything is on sale, so we can flush it out and start shopping for new stuff!
