My husband and I indulged in a feast for the eyes yesterday--a housewalk in the Southwood Park Neighborhood of Fort Wayne. ARCH’s Annual Home and Garden Tour raises money for its mission of preservation and identification of historical architecture in the city.
Every home on the walk had its unique style. We saw lovely antiques, fascinating art, and individual tastes in decorating. Pictured above are three of the nine or ten houses we saw. (One was an amazing 13,000 sq. ft. mansion!) The lawns and gardens were also very interesting. We enjoyed every minute of our time. We gathered many ideas for our own home and garden and had a late lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, Casa D'Angelos, before heading home.
I left in the late afternoon to meet our daughter and her family. Abigail and Titus quickly moved their seats into the backseat of my car and we made the hour and a half trip home. The trip passed with happy chatter. These will be exciting days for Grandma as they stay with us for a few days.
