Once, this house had the grandest view of Stone Mountain. Owning most of the land in the view too. Recently sold, its estate sale is on now. Multi-colored marble, below.
Iron security gating INSIDE the mansion, below.

Grand rooms, multiple bars, this house was built for entertaining. Now, carpets pulled up, tables

loaded with trinkets, the good stuff was leaving in several trucks as I arrived.

In the garden, above, a mailbox post completely grown thru a tree.
Hunting old garden tools finding few. Bought 2 old swing blades. $3 each, a common price for the average old tool. Was hoping to get a better deal. Will be creating tool bouquets for my interior & exterior.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Pics taken Thursday.
A clam rake I found in Hogansville, GA last summer set me back $12. But it's hardly average!

I love your tool bouquets.
These photographs illustrate perfectly why I so often find estate sales rather depressing. An interior security gate??? Sigh.

Wow...what is to become of the house...surely they are not tearing it down..any idea?

Brenda Pruitt said...

Tool bouquets. I can't wait to see this!

That excites me and breaks my heart at the same time. Are they demolishing this home? What did you get?


Terry said...

What is (was) this place? 12 clams for a clam rake seems like a deal to me.

Beautiful house needs human to be completed - on the pictures, maybe it doesn't look like hunted yet, but soon...
