My Sentiments Exactly

"I have spent my life obsessed with houses and the beautiful things that go in them. Not for the false glamour of having “things”, but for the art and story behind the homes—the designers and the craftsmen and the ingenuity of it."       Haskell Harris (Garden and Gun magazine)

I could have written these words myself.  I have always, as long as I remember, been obsessed with houses, too.  So many people think that working in this business means that you are into what Haskell calls "the false glamour" of it all, but I know, for myself it is just as she feels; it is about the family who lives there and their story.  Even the stories of those before them.

Maybe it's just a Southern thing.....

If we can't take a real vacation, a small virtual one helps!
