Is it any wonder why I was compelled to buy this Painting by William Mize? Love the shotgun house and his use of color. It is stunning. And it’s size is deceiving. Looks so much bigger in real life. We love art and love to support local artists.
We have a firepit for those spring evenings with a chill in the air. This amazing fire was created with a log that was scored with a hole in the middle.
One of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood is Barcelona Wine Bar. They have a cozy ambiance, great wine list and delicious seasonal tapas. Recently they had a Paella cooking class that I went to with a foodie friend.
We don’t get too fancy with breakfast at the Urban Oasis. During the week we set out a continental breakfast spread with great coffee, teas, fresh berries, yummy breads, granola, yogurt, juice, hard-boiled eggs.On the weekends we actually cook to your order bacon, eggs, and omelets along with the afore mentioned spread.
Had to make some breakfast for myself after feeding guests. Yum!
All those fools crowded into that noisy expensive Krog Street Market don’t know what they are missing at Serpas right around the corner. This perfectly cooked porkchop, on a bed a grits with braised greens hit the mark. Yum.
Back in the day, when Duane and I got married, I had no idea what to get him for Christmas. Guys can be really hard to buy for. I decided he might like a robot collection so each year I buy a vintage style robot. This year, I loved this one. I am partial to the girls.
Very excited to get our new Flor Carpeting at the Urban Oasis Bed and Breakfast. Soothing blues.
My new Eames Shell Chairs are now assembled! They look just like the photoshopped pic I did. I love it when what is in my mind is manifested so precisely. With this much color in my place, I have to be careful adding to it.
I found a turtle in my garden this morning. I think that must be a sign of good luck. It really is an Urban Oasis.
Most bed and breakfasts are not in lofts. And most lofts don’t have gardens. At the Urban Oasis we do things a little different. Here are a few shots of the loft gardens on a morning in early June.
