Lexington, KY


Tiny dangle earrings for my friend Eva, perfect since she has a baby that likes to grab jewelry. These are made with 14K gold findings, rainbow sapphires and faceted crystal.

Lexington favors horses in a major way, erecting beautiful statues of them all over town. We loved the variety of techniques used to decorate them, especially this decoupaged crazy quilt.

This one is an homage to Van Goghs 'Starry Night', executed in mosaic. It was so beautifully done.

This beauty was our favorite, one we spotted while driving. Azalea made it our quest to find The Magic Wishing Horse. It took awhile (and many blisters later) but we found her!

Our friends live in this amazing house! Its filled with gorgeous details, like carved railings and decoratively etched doorknobs, each fitted with intricate keyholes. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that fairies lived in the garden and brownies in the floorboards! We really enjoyed our visit to Lexington, especially since we get along so great with our friends that live there. Luxuriant chocolate tastings and True Blood-we are so alike. I can't wait to visit again.

We can't wait to have you here again! So glad we were able to see you guys and meet Max. Tell Azalea we found a sculpture of a mama horse and two foals--we'll have to find them again next time you're here. Henry sends kisses!
