The Jayne House

Today I am looking the Jayne House in Philadelphia, Pa.

I found this beautiful house restoration on, yesterday.  I love the skylight.

The Jayne House (Frank Furness, 1895)
With its intriguing and idiosyncratic terracotta façade, the unique power and vision of Frank Furness is immediately evident. Every square inch of the house was studied by architectural archaeologists and historians who joined the design team to restore this astonishing structure to its original use as a family residence of inimitable character. Custom sconces blend with period lighting fixtures, 19th Century antiques blend with original built-ins and a scenic mural based on English country house precedents supports the astonishing 400 square foot leaded glass skylight.



Woohoo! If you celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, I know that you are looking forward to a 4 day weekend.  I am planning on eating lots of great food and spending time with my family.

This lady doesn’t look like she is going to hurt this turkey.  She looks at him like he is a pet.  I certainly hope so for his sake.


I have so many things to be grateful for this year!  I hope you do, too.


Enjoy the long weekend, relax, and be thankful.

I will see you back here on Monday!
