Window Suprise

I had never noticed the fantastic fan lite in the gable of this historic home in Sag Harbor. There are more gables on the house with more of these great windows.

Today we used a wood copy of Eddie the dog I designed first for ARF. Eddie is now proposed for the Southampton Village Dog Park. The "real" dog will be made by Liberty Iron. John from Liberty helped with placement and working out the mounts.

Other Hamptons

Hampton Court Palace built in England by Henry the 8th seems larger than the whole village of Southampton. What did they do in all those rooms.
