Found this as Deborah and I were re-organizing my Design Studio last week.
So touched, as Mrs. Sparks, was, by far, my FAVOURITE teacher......she ROCKED as a 5th-grade teacher,....and she ROCKS today,....as a volunteer, walker, and fund-raiser for The American Cancer Society.
Here's to TEACHERS everywhere!!!

The Season is upon us,.....since MOST of us do NOT wait until Christmas Eve to decorate their tree (I'd LOVE to hear,...and blog,...about those of you who wait.....), here's a national contest that all of my Peeps can enter...
As you might remember from LAST YEAR (2011),......my fireplace at Christmas at Callanwolde, which Norren Kloc, my decorative artist and faux-finisher, decorated for me, WON FIRST PLACE in Scot's mantle category,......AND, my tartan-filled Christmas tree, also at Callanwolde in my Billiards Room, won SECOND PLACE in Scot's "Best-Christmas-Tree contest.........
So,....of course I plan to enter again this year,.......YOU SHOULD, TOO!!!
...and, while you're at it,.....sign up for Scot Meacham Wood's blog,.....bar-none,...the BEST blog on Interior Design I know of.......

One of my favourite things on Earth is my Front Garden,....my Side Garden, and my Back Garden. Here are some photos of my Front Garden,.....I just weeded and swept the sidewalks,.....and gave the garden a good drink.
When I bought this house in 1995, it had a front yard (that I mowed), a side yard (that I mowed) and a back yard ,.....a BIG backyard....(that I mowed). Over the years I've replaced all grass with GARDENS, fountains, and stone patios. BTW: I DONATED my lawn mower over 6 years ago to our Local Fire Station, Atlanta #23,....right around the block from me. Uncle Mark don't need to mow no more..........!!!
I had this River Rock fountain installed in the Side Garden......(with my many goldfish...). Scott Arnold's company did a GREAT job on my fountain, ...AND those killer columns I designed out front.
I'd LOVE for you to send me photos of YOUR Gardens!
Gardening: It's A Good Thing!
