Last week Tara Dillard in her wonderful blog posted this photo and declared it a status symbol!!
All the time I wanted mine a bit more polished, more details more manicured, more expensive…
Sometime it is benificial to look through the eyes of someone you trust and admire to realize what you already have
Sandra!! Bravo! You are so RIGHT!!
That is my favorite driveway I have ever seen in a book!
(may I say the name of the boos? (I think it is the same house..and in a new book!)
What elegant restraint not to put a “paved in any way driveway!!)
The Great American House; I think is the book by the architect Gil Schaefer!
it just came out……….I almost locked myself in the closet to read it cover to cover! My favorite in many years!
Right on, Tara, and Sandra! We are in the same tribe!
Pox on all those paved and perfect driveways! May those volunteers sprout and bloom through the crannies in walls, paths, and driveways!
Thank you Penny, to be in your ‘Tribe’ is indeed an honor!
ps the first typo is “book” that was some “correction” I will try to “disable”!
It is the natural things we love!! As Tara calls it; the “poverty circle”! Money does not buy taste. In fact; most of the time it devours it.
Oh dear, am I the only one who cannot see the photo in this post? I am dealing with driveway decisions right now and it sounds like I really need to see this! Help!
My error, pushed the wrong button and published a draft.
The style of your drive would depend on where you lived. If in a community, there might be requirements you would have to follow; in my case I live in the country and the drive (fine gravel & weeds) is appropriate.
You might like to check http://fortheloveofahouse.blogspot.com/2012/09/so-lest-you-think-weve-been-sitting.html to see another idea.
Keep us posted on your progress.
SANDRA, you are my leader !
You lived in a rental for years while searching for the right antebellum home & property.
Only problem with your home? Too far from mine.
Too far indeed, fortunately we can still drive!!!
