First a little about Callanwolde. The Gothic-Tutor style mansion was built in 1920 by Charles Howard Candler, eldest son of the Coca-Cola founder, Asa Candler. It is located in Atlanta's historic Druid Hills neighborhood and is 27,000 square feet. It was saved from demolition in 1971 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The estate consists of 12 acres with several other buildings including a retreat, gardener's cottage and conservatory. It also has beautiful formal gardens.

Here are some of my favorites!
|Tree in Great Hall|
|This lively room provided great examples of "working with ribbon" - the tree was magical!|
|I loved this fireplace and the beautiful wallpaper in this room - naturally I was attracted to all the great chairs!|
|I will want to come back when the gardens are in bloom - what a lovely setting!|
