Winterthur

A weekend in Delaware is what everybody needs.  And when there, a visit to Winterthur Museum is a must.

  Who or What is Wintherthur?

 Winterthur was the childhood home of Henry Francis du Pont (yes the DuPonts)  and 60 years ago he opened Winterthur to the public.

Upon entering Winterthur you immediately get the grand feel of the home.IMG_0917

Imagine walking up these staircase every night.  IMG_0918   

Almost think that the staircase could keep going straight to heaven.

Who has an eagle guarding their plants?  Wintherthur does.

Dining room to dine for.  Don’t have to worry about over inviting guests. IMG_0914 A Sitting room covered with wall paper straight from china.IMG_0940

A chandelier to die for.  But could not help thinking how long it takes to clean all those gorgeous crystals.

Now that winter is finally gone I will be using new light and relaxing Springtime fragrances. Love the gentle breeze scent of Raspberry Vanilla Velvet and Pineapple Sunset takes me to Summer on my own tropical island paradise. The perfect combo is using the body wash and then layering with the mist.  Best thing about Vitabath  they are free from sulfates, parabens propylene, DEA, TEA, mineral oils and silicone.  They will soften and moisturize my skin from the outside in with an antioxidant blend of Vitamins a, B3,C,E and pro-vitamin B5. Vitabath is so affordable too and easily available. Welcome Spring and Hurry Summer!!
