This month’s Veranda, that is. Ever since Dara Capinigro took over as editor I have loved every issue!
This house was a big “wow” for me. Great colors, scale, architecture and antiques. It is the Georgian house of Furlow Gatewood,
John Rosselli’s associate and southern antique buyer for the last 40 years. He apparently came across the 19th century gothic
house that was just about to be demolished, and had it cut in half and moved onto his property. Gatewood restored, decorated andcompleted the landscape design on the home in 18 months. Did I mention he is 90 years old. Cheers to Furlow, well done!
sorry for the distorted pics, don’t know how to resize them!
These are snowball viburnum cut from the yard. They bloom for many weeks in the spring
and when the petals start falling, they look like snow on the grass. We love them best
when they are just beginning to bud in that beautiful green!
Eight years ago, soon after moving to C’ville we met the lovely Abby Kasonik. She invited us
to her awesome cottage where we saw some of her art…it was love at first sight! After a little
coercing we became her first ever commission.
She has just built this fantastic studio in her backyard and is painting away!
Abby’s large work is represented by the Lowe Gallery in Atlanta and we are
fortunate to be her only other outpost. So when she recently dropped off
a dozen new pieces from her aquatic series we were jumping for joy! Her following has
spread nation wide and she really seems to be on the fast track. We love knowing her
and are honored to be able to have her pieces in our collection at And George!
Check out her website:www.abbykasonik.com
Here is the collection currently at And George.
Everyone should have an Abby painting, if not several!
Vol. 3 is here, come in and grab one!
These gorgeous spring days get my landscaping juices flowing. Here are a few yards that
make my head start reeling and my pocket book pumping! Here is to spring!!!
