i'm finally breaking the radio silence after a tour of florida..
(thanks to beth for letting me escape the winter for a couple weeks!!)
so excited to share my adventures!  
ernest hemingway's key west home was a-ma-zing. 
love the old fixtures, colors and gorgeous grounds. and what's with the 46 cats hanging around?! take a look..

one of the 46 cats in and around the house... in its own little house. 
poet elizabeth bishop's words about the pool: “ . . .The swimming pool is wonderful -it is very large and the water, from away under the reef, is fairly salt. Also it lights up at night -I find that each underwater bulb is five times the voltage of the one bulb in the light house across the street, so the pool must be visible to Mars -it is wonderful to swim around in a sort of green fire, one’s friends look like luminous frogs . . .”

tiles, tiles, everywhere in the gardens!
so many amazing architectural details
