You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

205 Lavania


Monday, Jun 11, 2007 from Milton, Delaware

Angela pulls through in desperate times. Here’s a challenging task for you. Drive a few hundred miles away from home to a town you’ve never been to and start making cold calls to try and find a host family for the night. Not an easy thing to do. And while I was making tons of calls myself (you’d be surprised who says ‘yes’ and who says ‘no’), my dear friend Angela helped me out and went on a limb to find a host for me.

So I found myself at 205 Lavinia in Milton, DE. It will be an eclectic and memorable stop on the trip. I’m being hosted by Jeannie who operates a small art community out of her home. She has a beautiful property that stretches out to the pond with a most adorable little dock under a tree. Around the house are art pieces by artists. At the house she’ll host exhibitions and events. What I give Jeannie great respect for is she tries to bring in artists across the world to stay here, tell about their work, their home, and teach. Currently she’s hoping to bring in some artists from Ecuador.

I was able to meet an eclectic group of friends last night as we shared a great home cooked dinner. Arthur is completely right. After a while of eating out, it becomes boring. The food all becomes the same. Nothing can truly beat a home cooked meal. Right, Mom?

Welcome to 205 Lavania, a little retreat for expression and creativity. Check it out at www.205lavania.com.

I do agree about home-cooked meals! Especially if someone else is cooking them! (just kidding) Poor Dad says meals around here just sren't the same with you boys gone! 205 Lavania sounds like a wonderful retreat/art gallery - just what you enjoy!!
