Hello from Florida!
We had lunch in this cool restored warehouse and stables.
I love black and white painted brick.
Its called the Oxford Exchange in Tampa.
There is a book store as you enter (great floors).
We ate lunch in the solarium.
The freshly brewed iced tea is cooled in martini shakers.
I liked the patterns in the restroom.
Then we went to Gainesville,
hugged my boy a lot and got him a haircut.
And watched the Gators win!
Now we are in Sarasota at the Ritz Carlton...
on vacation and milking my birthday week.
I love this flower arrangement in the lobby.
Last night we ate in the hotel at...
Delicious food and fun interior.
The wood sculpture on the ceiling could be a
net or sea gulls...either way,
it is nautical for a seafood restaurant on the water.
Great light fixtures in the private dining room.
The dishes are earthen pottery
and recycled wine bottles.
Isn't this a great salt and pepper fossil marble server?
I bought one for my husband in the gift shop.
Notice the fish silverware and the simple craft paper
place mat with a stamp.
Love the details.
It rained :( most of the day...but I am headed to the pool now.
Thanks for visiting.
