Lowcountry Marsh

Lowcountry Marsh

I snapped this photo while walking – it’s so hard for me to not stop and take photos. I’m not sure my other half appreciates this trait in me, but it can’t be helped… So I snap away, then try to catch up only to stop again.

The marsh here in the Lowcountry is dramatic and beautiful. Always changing – low tide, high tide, grasses change, birds, sky and oh those trees! Continue reading “Lowcountry Marsh”

The Nantahala House Plan by Allison Ramsey Architects!

This is the Nantahala house plan by Allison Ramsey Architects – from the Blue Ridge Inspirations Book (Vol. 1). This plan is 2,438 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. I love how the front porch is situated at an angle – also love the deck along the side of the house! Wonderful lines on this house!

Shaggin’ on the Cooper!

Dust off the dancing shoes!

The Charleston, SC area has so much to offer. Something is always going on. Always. There is always an event of some sort. Fred and I went to the Mount Pleasant Pier (located in Mount Pleasant, SC) – it’s a park on a pier underneath the Ravenel Bridge. It is so nicely done, plenty of seating, a gift shop, areas to fish, clean fish, watch people, walk, visit, read a book, and… dance! Continue reading “Shaggin’ on the Cooper!”

Tis the season… Supporting local artists (of all kinds)!

I grew up in an artsy family. We were always doing something, art, crafts, etc. We grew up playing outside mostly (in Michigan), but in cold or rainy weather we were plenty busy with arts/crafts. My dad was always tinkering on something. He would buy a book and learn how to do whatever it was at the time and then he would do it. Amazed me every time. Made jewelry, polished rocks, made wine, developed his own photos in a dark room he built, watercolor, oils, gouache, fly tying, canoe building, wooden bowl turning, adirondack chair making, jewelry box creator, lamp builder with wood he turned, the list goes on and on and on. I think that’s why I love to figure things out so much!

This bowl has been in our family for what seems like forever. Not sure which art fair my parents bought it at – I’ve always loved it – on a visit several years ago we brought it back with us (thanks Mom and Dad)! So if you see an art fair, take advantage of an opportunity right before your eyes. Find something special that speaks to you and support an artist! They work so hard!

Catch you back here tomorrow!

We recently popped into Taco Boy for a weekend lunch. This place is full of atmosphere. I love how the windows behind the bar roll up making the inside and outside one fabulous space! Continue reading “Cinco de Mayo & Taco Boy!”
