Kitty & Company will be conducting a series of short interviews with local Chelsea Residents for 52 weeks in order to appreciate differing personalities and design thoughts and styles in our community. Perhaps you will meet someone new through these weekly interviews or perhaps it will be YOU! Stay tuned and follow us each week – we look forward to introducing you to the finesse of 52 Chelsea individuals. Up next – Mr. David Riddle.
3.When did you move to Chelsea? I was born and raised in Chelsea and haven’t left yet!
4.What do you love about where you currently live? I purchased and restored the home in which my grandparents raised their family. Within one mile of my house, there are nature trails, bike trails, many lakes and tons of wonderfully social neighbors.
5.If you could have a second home anywhere, where would it be? My second home would be in Saugatuck, Michigan. It's a cute charming little town to explore around and relax by the water. I love watching the sunset over Lake Michigan.

Kitty’s Note: As a fellow Bird hobbyist ( chickens) I loved seeing David’s beautiful bird house and even the chandelier inside – what else would you expect for the majestic peacock? This is the Taj Mahal for birds! David is the perfect interview for this time of year, as he turns a Christmas tree a beautiful piece of art showcasing all kinds of feathery birds and textured ornaments. Merry Christmas to you all!
