~ Old & White :)

Two things I love are almost anything old/vintage or antique, and the color white. Which brings us to what I am doing right now, painting the backs of the bookcases, and touching up the moldings, in the studio. Nothing is quite as wonderful as crisp white shelves. Everything looks good on them. Even though walking into a fabulous library with wood shelves can be rather pleasant, white is the choice today. The ones in the family room used to have the accent red of the room on the back of them and that got painted white a while ago. It was nice for a short time, but the total white look called me back just as it is in the this room.

In the meantime, here is a bit of old. A few shots from St. Augustine. More photos to crop and resize for blogging soon, after I get this paint stuff done.


The Old House Village Gardens


From their website: — the former Hotel Alcazar, built in 1887 in the Spanish Renaissance style. Railroad magnate Henry M. Flagler commissioned architects Carrere and Hastings to design the Alcazar and the Ponce de Leon Hotel (across the street). The two young architects later designed the New York Public Library and the U.S. Senate office building. After years of accommodating vacationing wealthy patrons, the elegant resort hotel
closed.

Lovely Garden Area at St. Francis Inn, for St. Francis of course.
(The best breakfast we have had yet at a B&B.)

I'm glad you stopped by. Come again.

  4. How lovely.... is this St. Agustine, FL? I'd probably be visiting this place sometime in the next weeks, as we're going to FL for our vacation and my sister, who lives in FL wants to show us around St Agustine... :)

    thanks for sharing
