Good evening everyone….as I settle back into my routine here at home and the office, I wanted to share with you my highlights of the last 10 days. The day after Christmas we? traveled to Palmetto Bluff, yes we cannot seem to stay away:) More on that subject in a few days….. Then ended the year in Charleston…another favorite city. Having a son who will not fly no matter what (and that has included some serious bribes on my husbands part)? has limited where we go as a family, but the important thing is that we were together and had an absolute blast, not to mention a heatwave…we had days of high 70’s and one day that it got to a whopping 83!! Seeing that in NY today its in the 30’s…..I would love to be back there right now:) Very little narration necessary as the pictures do most of the talking….. These were all taken Christmas morning….. And onward to Palmetto Bluff…. Arriving to Charleston on New Years Eve…. Any restaurant that features cake on their BREAKFAST menu….especially coconut cake has a fan in? me for life!! (Peninsula Inn for breakfast) Even their elegant sitting room off the foyer is beautifully appointed with a pretty little coffee bar (and GREAT coffee too)! Even in the rain, Charleston is full of charm You can imagine my disappointment to see this gorgeous shop was closed on New Years Day (my husband…not so much) Charleston is a beautiful place to go front door shopping…….this was a beauty! And back at home it’s freeeeeezing here, was very busy over at the warehouse getting the orders out the door and of course putting aside a stash for all my hard work:) Remember my “infirmary” for my plants? Well happy to report several “patients” are being discharged:) And so happy to have a my great Ilve stove? for marathon soup cooking! Loved coming home to my beautiful new extra long chinoiserie lumbar pillow for my bed….. And finally as the Christmas takedown begins (always bittersweet) I quickly came up with a pretty new blue and white vignette for my mantle! And with the antiqued version…. So thats a little recap…..such a fun week. I swear going there is truly a happy place, it is like stepping back in time and entering a happy zone. If you have the opportunity to go….by all means, do! Thank you for stopping by, wishing you a wonderful evening. Until next time…..
