The stunning William Winslow House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1893 will be on the market for the first time in 55 years. This home, built in River Forest, Illinois was the first residential commission Wright took after leaving Louis Sullivan’s firm. The home exhibits many of the traits which later became his trademarks. Using Roman brick and a low, wide roof with a deep overhang the home was a huge departure from existing neighbors. The entire home has been meticulously maintained. Just look at these photos from the Chicago Sun Times and listing agent’s website.
I am happy to have discovered ShopTerrain.com. A website full of beautiful and inspiring items, many for the garden and outdoor living but also many kitchen, spa and entertaining items, I have found lots of beautiful gifts on this site to help me with my holiday shopping. I love these gilded shadow boxes and these advent houses.
Another wonderful place to find unique gifts is Ten Thousand Villages. This fair trade retailer has been sourcing beautiful objects for us since 1946. There are over 390 retail stores as well as the website, with the business objective being to improve the livelihood of tens of thousands of disadvantaged artisans in 38 countries. No small task! The inventory is varied and unique. I love this handmade blue leaf tray and this rings of steel mirror. I am so happy to have a store in my neighborhood.
How’s your holiday shopping coming along?
