Sweet Inspiration

I was digging through my photo files a little while ago, gathering photos for a couple of other posts I'm working on.  In a file from 2006, I found THIS ...

I took this photo outside Caravati's, an architectural salvage yard in Richmond.  Little did I know at the time, but I guarantee that there will be elements of this gorgeous Victorian gable repeated later as we renovate one of our outbuildings into a guest house.

THIS is why it pays to ALWAYS have a camera in your purse!


  1. My gosh you post often. Great image. I wanted to stop back and let you know I linked to your blog via my new blog GreenApples. I posted so readers can jump to your blog and meet you before your Blotanical approval. It helps.Here is the link.

  2. This is just great! I love the style with all the shingle work and gingerbread! What a lovely guesthouse you will have-

  3. Oh, can't wait to see the guesthouse! Love this gable - reminiscent of the gingerbread cottages on MV. Now if you could only swipe the green door to go with it!

  4. I totally agree. I love having my camera on me for those moments when inspiration strikes!

    This gable is beautiful. Can't wait to see where you'll use it!


  5. Ok, and WHY didn't you buy that piece??...beautiful, and I have no doubt that your outbuilding will be gorgeous with something similar! Purse camera woman strikes again! ;)

  6. That is gorgeous! I can't wait to see you out building...this is an inspiration for sure.
