|View from Seven Mile Bridge on way to Key West, FL|
So lovely to have a get away with no agenda
|Vintage style stamp dispenser|
We had a long weekend staying in Key West, Florida at
the Southernmost Hotel at the quiet end of Duval Street.
(Walking distance to everything)
|Fantastic tilework at Hemingway House|
I had ONE thing on my try-to-do list
(no MUST do's this time around!):
visit Hemingway House.
|You can touch the cats - but don't pick them up!|
Famous for the six-toed cats as well as the home & writing studio of author Ernest Hemingway.
Hemingway's wife Pauline had her collection of chandeliers installed throughout.
Below, I was fascinated by the ceiling medallion,
and the aged piece of lace hiding the support chain.
Tall ceilings and large windows let in ample light despite the large balcony overhangs
- perfect for steamy weather and good island breezes.
I was drawn to details - here the deep baseboard trim and chalkpaint-like surfaces.
Gorgeous storage chest with decorative tile inserts!
The writing studio above (what is now) the bookstore.
Clean and simple.
Yep - I think I'd visit here again!!
Thanks for stopping by!
