Two beautiful house posts

One of the most rewarding aspects of blogging is the virtual connection I have made with people around the world who share many of the same interests as me. It is particularly interesting when someone emails me from Atlanta, because we often speak the same language when it comes to houses, architects, stores and designers. Many of my blog readers in Atlanta serve as an extension of my eyes and ears in the real estate and design scene, letting me know when a great new house has come on the market, when a sale is going on in a great decor or antique store, or when an architecture or design event is going on in our fair city.

Two of my Atlanta virtual blog friends, one old and one new, have started blogs of their own that are welcome additions to the Atlanta architecture and design blog scene.

First, an 'old' blog friend, James. James is a long time reader of my blog, and was incredibly helpful to me as I looked for a lot earlier this year. Although we both love architecture and design, James' style is a bit more transitional and clean lined, and I appreciate his interpretation of design elements from both my posts and the houses he finds while exploring Atlanta. James has finally decided to take the plunge and write his own blog. He calls it 'Limestone and Boxwoods' - a wonderful blog name inspired by two of his favorite design elements (check out his blog header - it is fabulous).

And a 'new' blog friend, Blayne Beacham. Blayne is a talented young photographer and artist, and is behind many of the real estate pictures that I have featured on my blog. When she found my blog, and emailed me to let me know that she had photographed some of the homes I feature on my real estate posts, we made an instant connection and have been emailing back and forth ever since. She has even given me a tour of one of the homes that her mother's real estate firm, Beacham & Company, is listing.

I toured the home in this post last May when it was featured on a fundraising event, and it is spectacular. Photo credit: Blayne Beacham

Both of these blogs are very promising and I look forward to reading many more wonderful posts from James and Blayne!
