An Afternoon's Rumination

On our recent trip to Newport, Kentucky we were blessed to get to stay in a gorgeous home  a block from The Levee on the  Ohio River. 

So gorgeous  in evening... like  a starry night!

 The magnificent skyline of Cincinnati was  our backdrop...

  the  area  was  so very charming.... homes similar  to this.

 each one  quaint,  well dressed, and  family friendly!
I   was  completely entranced with the decor of our  short term abode.

I love this  mantel  decor.  In the first place I  have already checked out  getting a deer  head for my living room... it is on my  Christmas  wish list on Amazon!  The   decorative  bone and antlers  make such a statement, as well!
   The papered wall  highlighting the  fireplace was   a very special touch!

Is this ceramic quail  just the most darling  accent piece atop a stack of old books.

The  simplicity of this  table setting  was  most appropriate for any season.

But, of course,  this accent wall  as you entered the parlor,   just took everyone's breath away!

So as the sun sets on my twilight  reflections     of the last week...

A  lovely cup of steeping  Earl Gray  is  such a cheery  topping   to an afternoon's muse!

A Return to Loveliness


  1. Looks like you had a charming place to stay in Kentucky. I love the quail too atop that stack of books. The stained glass window is amazing! Earl Grey in a red transferware teacup sounds lovely. Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea.


  2. What a lovely place and a wonderful post you shared with us today. Sounds like you are having an amazing time. Blessings, Martha

  3. Looks like a wonderful place to stay. Love the contrast of the rustic decor and the stained glass window. Such a pretty teatime vignette! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!
