A house in my home town

This gorgeous room is in the Irwin Millar home - Columbus, Indiana (my birthplace).

My Mom worked with Irwin Millar in the 50s. He was a great businessman and philanthropist. His foundation paid architectural fees for public buildings making Columbus a modern architecture destination.

Take a look!

It's now available for tours.

We had a similar Saarinen table and tulip chair set when I was growing up. I can't believe we got rid of it because it was so heavy to move!

I think I need more color in my house,

Blooming in my garden

The deer love my garden - but they don't like daffodils. Yay!

My Grandma and Grandpa Schultz had a beautiful garden in Chicago, where I grew up, with meandering paths through beds of daffodils. I still remember walking those paths as a child, examining each unique blossom, and just soaking in the beauty.

So - here's a start on my daffodil garden.

Just look at their gorgeous faces!
