A Beautiful Home ~ Someone Special

Hi Everyone, 
I have wanted to share my friend's home with you for awhile.  I'm only showing some of her beautiful property. Her home is on the Bluffs overlooking the city and she has decorated the interior with a 1930's  flair.
This fountain is overlooking  the city and at night the fountain is lite with the water flowing over the top.  It's amazing.     

In 1885, J. A. Bauer (John Andrew "Andy" Bauer) bought out Frank Parham's Paducah Pottery in Paducah, Kentucky, a pottery whose main products were brown-glazed, had-thrown wares including crocks and jugs.  J.A. Bauer moved his family to Los Angeles in early 1909, and selected a new site for a pottery. J.A.
Bauer Pottery Company was built at 415-421 West Avenue 33 in Lincoln Heights. an area between Los Angeles and Pasadena, California. Bauer found a demand from the nursery trade and added new products to the pottery's wares including flower pots, garden ware, and planters.

Around 1930, Bauer Pottery introduced California Colored Pottery.  By 1933, the company added ruffled or "ring" dishes. 

The collection is just amazing.  I would love to open the doors and photograph the beautiful dishes and show you more of the collection.  

A beautiful home inside and outside.
And a beautiful women inside and outside lives here.

Beautiful rose gardens and different areas of interest. 
It's a treat when this wonderful lady invites a group of friends to share the view on the Bluffs to watch the city's 4th of July fireworks display.  It's a half hour show around ten in the evening when the sun goes down the temperature can sometimes still be in the 90's.  
What a great time we have.
Thank you, dear friend for entertaining us all those years.
I love you.
