Hello…..feels like a long time since I did one of these Bluff Diary posts. In fact, last one was in October.  Now that we are officially settled into our beautiful PB home, there is not as much to share. We make small minor tweaks here and there, but overall we are just about done there.

Added a pretty chair to my bedroom, working on doing a gallery wall with family pictures and always tweaking things here and there. Still love and so anticipate my visits there and just wish I cold go more and stay longer. One day!

Anyway thought it would be fun to post on my recent visit, more about being out and about in Palmetto Bluff, a few behind the scenes of a photo shoot for Southern Home magazine which is very exciting and a few house pictures.  This post ended up being very picture heavy (good thing I enjoy taking pictures) so it’s a great time for a coffee break. Putting this together made me wish that I was there right this very minute. Hope you enjoy…..

The very first thing I always do is make myself a cup off coffee, go sit on the porch and exhale

And arrived with new loot, added these garden seats to the front

Just a few scenes from biking around Palmetto Bluff one early morning-

They opened up a mini Paris Market in Palmetto Bluff which is so pretty and beautiful merchandised and a great place to pick up gifts

This is a. new “village” in Palmetto Buff called Mooreland. Its really nicely done with a few shops, a bike, exercise/gym, fantastic game room/restaurant/amazing bowling alley and more. Really well done. We got there before they even opened one afternoon which was the perfect time to take a few pics-

Ended it with bowling….coolest bowling alley:)

Because I had a revolving door this time of friends and sister with my niece, we went into Savannah twice, did a little shopping

When in Savannah you have to visit Olde Pink House, feels obligatory. Yes, it’s touristy but guests always request it and it does exude such Southern charm:) However diets must be left at the door!

There are several rooms to dine in, each very beautiful and different, this time we were in the green lacquered room which is a beauty

A few behind the scenes of the photo shoot day (for Southern Home magazine, coming out in summer)

Added blue and white pieces to my interior cabinets

Put a new chair in my bedroom:)

We were driving around on the golf cart and these incredible lemon trees gracing the beautiful front door of this house stopped me in my tracks. I must get them! I went on a. nursery search locally to see if anyone had big beautiful ones likes this but could not find them (found smaller scrawnier ones but nothing like these), so next time may need to. knock on this persons door to find out where they got them, so gorgeous!

My last morning at the Bluff, a friend had sent us a huge arrangement of magnificent red roses (they stayed out overnight to take in the cool air, it was such a beautiful morning! I miss that view and sunshine!

Hi Tina, I often see Myer lemon trees at Home Depot or Lowes when I’m at Amelia Island. Good luck!

My crystal ball ( I luv crystal) foresees a “shop of your own” in the future….just think of the fun names…WELCOME to “SKYE”….blue & white clouds, etc….oh, the possibilities…franki

Tina, they look like Meyer Lemon trees. We can grow them in pots in San Antonio. My cousin in Houston has one that is growing in the ground and is 10 ft. In height. She has picked over 200 lemon in January! The juice is wonderful in lemonade and chicken piccata!

Mariannel on

Everything is so beautiful! Your taste is impeccable and inspiring! We are building a beach house ourselves and I am getting such good ideas from your posts! Love the pictures from Savannah and Palmetto Bluff, so beautiful.

The photo shoot looked like fun, cannot wait till it comes out. Would love info on the new chair in your bedroom- looks like it has lucite legs? Love that detail! Thanks for sharing Tina

Cindy on

Your home is gorgeous!!! Going to Palmetto Bluff in April for a big wedding and staying 3 extra days!

Maybe you would consider a post on visiting there for the first time?

Claire P on

So beautiful! I love those garden stools you put on the porch when will you get them again? I need a pair!

Your bedroom is so welcoming and peaceful, love the colors and carpet. I don’t blame Southern Homes for choosing your home, it’s perfect.

Haven’t been to Savannah in many years, but would be fun to go back some time.

Maria on

I was there the same time you were! Always love visiting PB!

Elaine on

Incredible! Just stunningly beautiful and so inviting, all at the same time. Thanks for sharing.

Susan Hayes Long on

Summer can’t come soon enough to see that fabulous spread. Those new garden seats are so beautiful. Thanks for giving us such joy on a gloomy winter day.

Tempie martin on

Tina, I think you need to buy Meyer lemon trees from Lowe’s or Home Depot and grow them yourselves. They might look scrawny at first but will grow out of the ugly duckling stage an be beautiful with care. I have to give lemons away here in Watkinsville, Ga.
I love Savannah and go any chance I get. Lovely shops and historic district. The Paris Market a favorite.

Linda Cashman on

I have the blue and white bone mirror in the bed picture!

Linda Cashman on

The problem is that you will have to plant your Meyer Lemon trees after the first year because they get so big very fast. I have 2 of them and they are over 15’ tall and I get so many lemons I have to give them away. Satsumas also grow great.

Pat on

The blue and white floral tea towels are beautiful. Is there a source that you could share?

Mary Johnson on

How exciting to see PB coming out in Southern Home! That is my all time favorite magazine ! They have such elegant appointments and PB is perfect for it. Can’t wait!

Sharon Foster on

In the photos for the Southern Home shoot there are gorgeous topiary tea towels hanging from the stove. Are they yours or do you know a source for them?

Merilynn Bergstresser on

Hi- where did you get the beautiful canvas wall art pictured on the piece of furniture with the two glass lamps and vase of two toned rose colored tulips? Looks like small river with trees on either side. Thanks!!

Vicki on

We live on Skidaway Island in Savannah. One of our neighbors has a huge, old lemon tree in their yard near a lagoon. A few weeks ago, during a spurt of warm weather, an alligator was out eating the lemons off the lower branches!!
Be careful where you put yours ~ would not suggest the back porch.
