My Ol’ Kentucky home

As many of you know. I’ve spent the past week exploring the stomping grounds of my childhood Louisville, Kentucky. I thought many these photos from my visit were worth sharing. On a day trip to Indiana, I found myself enthralled by the cloudy sky rolling over the farm.

The visit to Huber’s farm in Southern Indiana was a pleasant departure from the bustle of L.A. It proved to be just as picturesque as any of the vineyards, I love to visit in Napa Valley. Best of all were the deep fried (yikes!) biscuits to slather with homemade apple butter, orchards to pick apples from. and ducks to feed.

Another snapshot from East Market street is quiet buzzing with galleries, design shops, and places to chow. We tried out Toast on Market, and the bread pudding pancakes were tasty!

Another form of artwork threaded throughout the city is are the painted horses celebrating Gallopalooza, a local event. Another mid-western city does painted pigs and cows too. The Derby, being one of Louisville’s most famous equestrian events inspires the horses around town.

This got me thinking about all the cool equestrian inspired design out there. I came up with tons of ideas.

Check back here tomorrow, when I reveal my favorites.

SImply gorgeous.
