Highlights From The Home On The Hill

Well… all I can say is, I hate it that you missed this one.  What an amazing home to run through. Evening was falling; and yet, the entire crew was converging fast.  Filled with anticipation.  Darting through Atlanta’s traffic with a single purpose in mind.  I knew that we would have a great turn out, but, I was truly impressed when I turned the corner onto Andrews … Read More Highlights From The Home On The Hill

Here’s A Twofer

Well ~ It’s that time of year.  The holiday season is upon us and a ton of cool events are comin’ down the pipes.  Stay plugged in here and I’ll feed you as many as I can. Let me start out these postings with one of my favorite groups:  The Insitute of Classical Architecture and Art. The other week, we had a guest lecture and … Read More Here’s A Twofer

ICAA / Bobby McAlpine / And, an Amazing Evening ~ The Follow Up…

First, to the Home. Once again, the ICAA knocks it out of the park.  This time with a guest lecture (for members only) by McApline Tankersly’s own Bobby McAlpine.  The location was in a Home of one of his few Atlanta projects.  Even though it’s tucked away in the heart of Buckhead, I’ve driven past it many times and always wanted to check it out first hand.  Before actually … Read More ICAA / Bobby McAlpine / And, an Amazing Evening ~ The Follow Up…

Well Worth the Ticket

Hey All ~ Quick post here about an outstanding event that I went to last Thursday evening.  It was the Atlanta Symphony Associations Decorators Showhouse.  These are always incredible tours, not only because of the unsurpassed talents of the participants involved, but also, because of the spectacular venues which they are able to showcase.  And this one was nothing less than amazing.  We were lucky enough to actually have a private guided tour … Read More Well Worth the Ticket

Touches of Blue

So, I’ve been sitting on a post for a while now, but, hadn’t been able to pull it all together.  While watching the events unfold in the news with North Korea, the timing seemed to be right.  What a miserable, pathetic, impotent attempt at proving something to the world. The worst part though was when the “State” run media outlet made the announcement of the failed launch with … Read More Touches of Blue

Spring, Spitzmiller, APC and The Grant Mansion

What a magnificent day this Saturday turned out to be.  It started with some good times, hanging out with the tennis crowd and capturing a swift victory.  It wasn’t me though.  I think I need to give almost all of the credit here to Ted.  {Who, by the way, runs an exceptional company called North Georgia Windows.  If you ever need to get some windows replaced, give Ted … Read More Spring, Spitzmiller, APC and The Grant Mansion

The Soul of the Home

Man, I can’t wait for spring.  This past Saturday morning I wanted to go for a run, too cold.  I thought about working in the yard or washing the car.  Again, too cold.  But, what I really wanted to do was to attend an architectural lecture presented by the ICA&A and held at “The Little Chapel”.  However, I had already decided to pass on this opportunity so that I could … Read More The Soul of the Home
