Wednesday is Lensday: Irish Acres Edition

I’m actually posting early for me. Usually my Lensday post ends up being on Thursday technically speaking. I guess with this whole blogging thing, though,I will have to plan ahead on some days or post during lunch when I have some available time.

I wanted to first off share a few photos from my lunch at Irish Acres last Saturday. I mentioned last week that I would share details. If you are ever in these parts, or if you live here and haven’t experienced it, it is a real treat (It’s just outside of Versailles in the heart of picturesque KY horse country). It’s one of those types of places that has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens. It’s actually an old converted school house that was turned into a antiques gallery (not much into antiques but the bakelite jewelry was to die for) and a restaurant in the basement. It has a lot of character and it is decorated with lots of twinkle lights and charm.

blanche rides again
As far as showing off my photo skills, this isn’t the best photo, but I sure found this image funny from my view during lunch. It was a gigantic painting. Very Blanche Deveraux if you ask me, don’t you agree?

gentlemen prefer pink
I loved these pink walls mixed in with chandeliers and gold ornate accents. And of course the fact that the adorable gentlemen sign was mixed in with it. I’ve always been a big fan of hot pink + gold + black. I think a Christmas tree in those tones would be awesome, actually.

about as goth as I get
Here’s me in front of the ornate gothic-looking mirrors. It was gigantic and black and very cool…but only for the right décor. They did need to Windex it though.

what about baubles
The décor in that place is plentiful and all the hanging lights, ornaments, crystals, and baubles are stocked up on, in the event that you saw something that you had to have at home. They had 2 inch plastic gemstones that are gigantic versions of the ones I make earrings out of. They weighed a ton!

a horse is a horse
They had a carousel horse too. I think they are very pretty, but this one was especially girly (well, actually the whole place is girly, what did I expect?)

The reason I actually went there was for a bridal luncheon for my friend Dana. Here’s a cute pic of her. I’m actually making her jewelry for her wedding, so I gotta get on it like right away…it’s a week and a half away.

Hope you enjoyed looking at my photos. Lunch time is over. Until next time swellions!
