Mom and Aunt Cathy came to C’Ville for President’s Day Weekend! It was great having them here and we stayed pretty busy. Busy as in eating from-scratch cupcakes, shopping, and more eating. Bliss.
Guess who brought her gourmet cupcakes? Drool.
A store-bought cupcake that was just meh…Cute though!
Pretty Scout bags at Caspari
Love this display.
Paper place mats at Roxie Daisy . Genius!
This store was a dream!
The Barbeque Exchange’s ‘Porkapalooza’ Oh-em-yum!
We took a ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour of TJ’s home. One observation: The pine floors are painted green. Jefferson wanted the floors to appear to be grass as to bring the outdoors in.
Jefferson said that this was the most beautiful view in Charlottesville.
Montalto: Big Mountain. When TJ died, they sold his property, house and all in an auction. Part of that property was Montalto, which is that big hill. It means ‘big mountain’. The piece of land was sold as part of the auction. Fun fact: TJ bought the Louisiana Purchase for $15 million and the foundation regained Montalto for $15 million.

Teej was obsessed with three things: Time, space and light. This home had recurring themes of all three.
