Sanctuary rustic-exterior

This photo was taken on a very cold winter morning. The landscape is untouched except for where the snowplow came through. I pulled back from the house so it wasn't blocked by the snow piles and your eye is drawn to the roof lines and mountains. I could have taken this at dusk, but most of my interior shots needed to be done in the morning so I decided to catch the glow of the lit windows at dawn. Knowing that this house is a place for creativity and contemplation, it felt right to take this "quiet" photo early morning. I envisioned people starting to get up, pot of coffee brewing and the morning light slowly beginning to filter in through the windows.

Joanne Palmisano, Salvage Secrets added this to My Houzz: Hillside Sanctuary in Vermont
Wehr and Hart shared time here together as a couple and with friends, and it was truly a sanctuary for them. Hart passed away in the home in November 2011. The hillside home now serves as a personal grounding for Wehr's sojourns from her home on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. As a fitting tribute, Wehr has commissioned a separate small fairy house with a meadow and a grove of trees that meet off the west end of the house. The fairy house will be about 36 inches tall, 18 inches wide and 22 inches long. Wehr has dedicated the small structure as a celebration of Hart's life study of the relevance of fairy tales in storytelling and in Jungian psychology.
