We’re traveling to Webster House for today’s doodlewash. Webster House is one of Kansas City’s most unique destinations. It’s both filled with shops which contain beautiful European antiques, gifts, clothing, jewelry and personal accessories and serves an amazing lunch!
In a previous post I alluded to something new and exciting that was happening with me. The news was that I got a brand new job as Executive Creative Director for a new company that’s just starting up! I’m super excited and I can see the Webster House from my office window. The company hasn’t quite launched yet, so I’ll tell you more in a month or so. Stay tuned!
According to their website, Webster House was originally constructed in 1885 as the Webster School. It was designed by the Kansas City School Board’s architect, Manuel Diaz, in the Richardson Romanesque style. Webster House is one of the oldest remaining public school buildings in Kansas City and is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
My boss took me to lunch here on my first day and I had an incredible carrot soup. I should note that Philippe is also amazing at making soups and his are still better, but this one was super delicious. The Webster House is a very iconic looking building in the Kansas City Crossroads. My new office is just a block north of Mildred’s Coffeehouse when I posted yesterday.
Life has been a little up and down and crazy these past few months, but I’m starting to see the future and it looks pretty darn amazing. Beyond a wonderful new job, I get to doodlewash daily and feature amazing fellow artists on my blog. Meeting new friends all the time as I start a new adventure. I think that all adds up to just one thing – gratitude. Thank you all for the amazing friendship and love you’ve sent my way. Your positive energy powers me each and every day. I love you all!
