    Okay. Yes, that is completely amazing and I wholeheartedly endorse this post and all it contains. That being said, you really, REALLY should make a trip here to Charleston, SC. You may want to bring a moving truck and probably bail money too.

    My sister lives in the city and has never taken me there. Sort of questioning her love for me.

    Victoria,
    That one shot looks almost like the giant furniture piece you found on craigslist. This place should be your template for your kitchen.
    I can hardly wait to see your Halloween film, do you need extras?

    Omg, not gonna lie, when I saw those pictures of Sassafras, I thought they were of one of my favorite bars in my area- City Park Grill in Petoskey, MI. They have so many identical elements, although Sassafras does look admittedly older. Still! Cool digs!

    I have only been to Philly once and it was a quick stopover, never left the airport. But my favorite Philadelphia export is G. Love.

    I love the Free Library in Philly. I live way up north so I don’t get down there very often but when I do I take my laptop and write in the literature section. I keep hoping that all the inspiring architecture and being surrounded by the works of the great genius’s will work like osmosis and I will write a brilliant novel. So far no luck but you never know!

    Could you please go back there and steal for me the lintel above the mirror? I’ve been looking for one for above one of my doors. I wouldn’t lind the old radiator also, but it must be heavy, please exercise before going!

    Amd here I though you were the definition of stupendous magnificence! I completely understand the need for the tile. My favorite restaurant has a fabulous mirror in the ladies room that if they didn’t want me to have would me much more securely attatched to the wall but it’s way too big for my current handbag.

    Thanks because I didn’t want to move out of the suburbs even more and now I am really starting to miss the City. And it’s not like I’d be moving to the US anytime but just the environment of that gorgeous architecture. Sigh. You’re killing me.

    I love your blog. When I lived in Philly as a child my father took me to the Cherry Tree Bar on Baltimore Ave. at the bottom of South Melville St. I would sit at the bar with him and have a soda. Your blog made me remember that time as a child. Today I guess that would not be permitted but I loved sitting there with Dad. (It was only once or twice but I remember). I wonder if it is still there?

    I was drawn to the link to your Halloween porch, and, oh, my! You are a woman after my own heart where Halloween and also sparkly things are concerned. Looking forward to your starring role!

    Ahhhh Victoria you make me want to visit Philadelphia again. I have been looking around NH for a Kingdom mirror and now I will have to broaden my search to include a really nice old bar. Wait it just occurred to me that I have 2 already in my house they just need to have the nice white paint I put on them years ago scraped off. You see my home used to be the general store/post office/phone company/town clerks office/library and I got 2 beautiful 18-20 foot counters with the house! Back in the day I thought clean and white, but I am definitely thinking I like your look better. I think the movie is your best inspiration yet and the opening of it will give me the excuse I need to race down to Philadelphia. Maybe I’ll broaden my search for a Kingdom Mirror to all of New England after all CT is not too far to go for a treasure like that.

    The place looks A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!! I was so imagining what I could have been wearing while I was sipping wine from my bone china tea cup & fingering my string of pearls during probation. ;} The ceiling, the woodwork, the bar, the mirrors…it made my heart & chest sigh, longingly.
    I have been dying to (no pun intended) get into the Perry Hannah house on 6th Street in Traverse City, MI. He was the City Father & local lumber baron… they are using it as a funeral home right now & will do limited tours but no one will go with me….if you’re ever in MI….
