Kay England is a world famous quilter and fabric and pattern designer. She is a good friend of Brian’s and she invited us to see her house, pool and gardens. (We couldn’t see the sheep and llamas. They were inside the cool barn.) She was a delight to be with and graciously opened her home for us to tour , see her studio and her quilts. It was a very big treat. I can’t put a picture of her on my blog. I promised her I wouldn’t because she was in the pool cleaning it when we arrived.
I went to the wedding in Indianapolis, Indiana. Karin drove and I didn’t even see the Mississippi River when we went over. I really hadn’t looked at a map yet. But I want to see where we went. I was busy in the car doing stuff. LOL! But, two days after the wedding we got to go downtown to a couple of antique stores. The town is amazingly clean and the people were nice. We really had a good time getting the tour from Brian.
I never know what to get for wedding presents for those who don’t have a list at a store. Well,. For the wedding reception I was going to , I decided to wood burn some kitchen wooden spoons and utensils with a wooden container with a handle. I, also, did a frame for a wedding picture. And, I found a cut glass big biscuit jar and put peanut M&Ms in it. I really think they enjoyed the surprises.
The day after the wedding Brian’s parents invited us to see their new home. It was a beautiful, wonderfully laid-out home. It had charm and personality in each room. I loved her work areas and her pin cushion collecting and making. it was such a treat to see.

One of the most unique and different homes I have ever been in is the home of Kevin and Brian. The live in the back wing of an antique store/flea market. Sound weird but if you’d ever see it, it is a wonderful place. Lots of big rooms and a great layout. Spaces to work and play. Simply great. But, the neatest thing is the decorating. Brian is a decorator and boy does he know his stuff. I was amazed at how so many collections and so many items could be displayed in such a wonderful manner. It was really breath-taking. Their home has been featured in magazines. So, I wanted to share some pictures.
