Okay - Here are the pictures of Kay's historic home that I promised yesterday. It's old (by Utah standards) and small and packed to the gills with primitive goodness. Here is the front of the house - I love the colors, and the roof line, and the curved door.
Here is the doorway to the building behind the house that is Lorin's art studio. Lorin does oil paintings, watercolors, and he also does some wood carving. It's kinda cool that he uses this building for a studio, because a previous owner did also - LeConte Stewart was a famous area artist.
This is the barn covered in climbing morning glories - unfortunately most of the flowers had closed by the time our meeting started, but I know they're gorgeous when all the blooms are open first thing in the morning.
OK - let's go inside. We'll start in the living room.
This is a needlepoint picture that Kay did after she asked Lorin to design it. It depicts the historic neighborhood that they live in - the small yellow house in the top middle is their home.
Dining room - Kay used to insist on buying ONLY antiques, but has relented a bit in recent years when she finds really good reproductions - like this cupboard.
The Americana/Guest Room/Schoolhouse
And I think her laundry room is my favorite room in the whole house.
As you can see, Kay loves old childhood toys - she collects toy sewing machines, toy washing machines, toy ironing boards, toy irons, and vintage textiles - OH - and I didn't take any pictures of her china head dolls - she has several - the smallest is about 3" tall.
Hope you enjoyed the tour. I've visited Kay & her home dozens of times, and never get tired of seeing it! She's very talented and has a real eye for putting things in 'just the right place'!
