A wonderful week-end

We had an awesome time last weekend.

First we got to spend it with our best friends,
(a big shout out to W&J) who we don't see often enough!

Second we spent it in a wonderful B&B.

The Inn at Irwin Gardens in Columbus Indiana.

A wonderful mansion built in 1864 and updated in 1910. Wonderful hosts Jim and Eve , wonderful food , and BEST friends what more could you ask for? This lovely historical town has submerged it's self in Architecture and the arts, boasting architects/ firms such as Gunnar Birkerts,Harry Weese,Taft Architects and Artist's Dale Chihuly's wonderful sculpted glass in the Visitors Center, and Jo Saylors scupture "Puddles and Frog Pond" which can be found at the Bartholomew Consolidated Shchool Admin bldg.

Here is a quick view of our visit.

All of the furnishings are original to home.

Great Fun!
