WOW. who knew thomas jefferson was such an amazing talent? apparently everyone but myself!
we visited his home "monticello" last sunday and the tour was BEYOND amazing. .....charlottesville is a beautiful place to visit anyway, but seeing jefferson's house, his masterpiece of a home......AMAZING!
not only did he design all the window treatments, but he shopped for all the fabrics in paris-LOVE YOU TOM!!
and his house is full of angles-i'm an angle girl so this was fun. octagons everywhere and skylights too. a self taught architect, jefferson's creations in charlottesville (which also include the university of virginia) are a treat to see!! what an impression this day has made on us!!

R is equally excited about the fantastic railings!

a bed built into the wall-SOOOOOO cool. what an innovative idea!

love this life size satue of thomas jefferson....he was 6"2"...a giant for back then!

it was a great day!
