The folks at the lovely Antebellum-style Carl House welcomed me onto their property a couple of weeks ago for a tour. The home was elegant and the gardens lush and beautiful. Given the special place in my heart for all things old, I was in hog heaven viewing the details of the woodwork, ceilings, crown molding, antiques and more. It's easy to see why this is an award-winning wedding and event venue. After wandering the property and home for about as long as I thought appropriate for a drop in visit, I had a hard time convincing myself it was time to leave. Now if I could only convince them to let me borrow that beautiful couch for my next bridal show.
