…I took a break from all the work and walked up the street to the ArchitectureChicago Open House, a city-wide event.
Of course, my sole architectural interests were a mere block and a half walk away!
As much as I wanted to see inside, I passed by because there was no waiting line next door at the Cat’s Cradle Bed and Breakfast, another renovation financed a few years back by Col. J.N. Pritzker of Tawani Enterprises, Inc.
I almost felt as if I had somehow ‘gone back in time’, to a much gentler, more civilized era.
Cat’s Cradle contains five bedrooms, each with the flavor of that bygone time, yet each is technologically up-to-date.
I’ll title them in the sequence I viewed them.

Because I’ve been so busy in the apartment, painting not only walls but also furniture, and doing some fall cleaning in between, I haven’t gotten around to processing any other images from this wonderful tour.
There’s just one ceiling area to give a third coat, and then only the studio remains…I’ll take my time and do that piecemeal, as it is small and requires a lot of shuffling things back and forth—and I’m pretty ‘pooped’ right now!
I did, however, have a fine chat with one of the Innkeepers, Wayde Cartwright, which was both informative and most enjoyable!
If you plan to visit Chicago on business or vacation, give Wayde or his fellow Innkeeper, Bruce Boyd, a call at 1.773.764.9851, or you can visit www.catscradlechicago.com.
The rates are extremely reasonable, especially when you consider the surroundings and all the amenities provided!
(Yes, that was pretty blatant advertising from me, but if I were visiting, I’d surely love staying here!)
