Imagine being surrounded by all that beauty indoors and out -- mornings spent lounging in the sunroom enjoying a freshly-squeezed glass of orange juice, taking in the lake views and palm trees swaying in a gentle breeze, the vivid bursts of color from exotic tropical flowers and mouth-watering scents of ripe-on-the-vine garden produce. Not to mention lazy over-water naps in the dockside hammocks, the enticing smells of outdoor kitchen barbecues, watching the brilliant sunsets from the shaded pergola with a favorite drink at hand.... That's a full day right there! How time flies when you're living in paradise.

No wonder the dynamic duo of pink flamingos Bertie and Gertie don't want to leave the Blog Cabin!

So much more to see in Atlanta than I've ever scheduled time for, CplusE, so I'll have to look at my travel bookings and see if I can work something in. I know I'd enjoy the botanical gardens and would put the zoo on my must-see list as well.

Toss in a few museums and, who knows, possibly a stay at the Mandarin Oriental, and that would make a worthwhile trip in itself.

And yes, if you have the opportunity, let us know where you find Virginia's mystery photo subjects.

The thought had crossed my mind, CplusE. Seatbelt and no scarf, but definitely goggles and a leather helmet.

Beautiful indeed, twoTERRIERS, but can you imagine paying all that money for furnishings and only getting the lamp shade frames? http://www.atlantaskyrise.com/site_data/atlantask...

Not too much bling for me, please. Or too woodsy, unless it's a mountain cabin. When it comes to tiles, bigger is better to my eye. The same with those expensive stone backsplash materials -- live a little -- spend a bit more and make an impact! Am I too tediously traditional?

The most unique backsplash material I've seen that really left an impression on me? Stainless steel squares in a mix of matte and gloss of various sizes. It was stunning in an ultra-modern home.

I'll have to give a thumbs down to the hand sculpture (especially gloved) as an item of home decor.
It's more suitable for Halloween or a doctor's office visit, thank you.
