Bougainvillea in Charleston…

Bougainvillea in Charleston, SC

Such a pretty setting, isn’t it? All the pink blooms, with pops of white (and the cool blue chair) – all set in an English green space. Gorgeous! We stopped in Elizabeth Stuart Design (ESD) a week or two ago, looked around and then took a peek outside at the beautiful plants, furniture, etc. This setting is simply gorgeous! Bougainvillea’s are pretty amazing…

Spring is springing up in Charleston!

Abide-A-While – Mount Pleasant, SC

Well, it seems as if spring is about to spring in Charleston, SC! One of our azaleas is blooming, camellias are always in bloom this time of year, and the garden stores are full of stunning and colorful plants. I know our garden centers get CrAzY around here, like we all need to get some pretty things planted after our long, hard winter (hehe). It IS always exciting to do just that! The anticipation of what you’ll find and how it will transform a space is always so much fun!

Sun, shadows and a new (vintage) rug…

Charlie in the sunroom, one of his favorite places…

Sun and the shadows make for amazing photos. No matter the subject, the shadows are always so interesting to me. Shadows, reflections, different ways of seeing a view, they all pique my interest. Our sunroom has been one of the favorite rooms in our house, a special place to sit back (or at times, a great place to work). The sunroom is being updated so photos soon, I hope. We started with…

Some Of My Favorites… Sharp Task Lamps!

Some of my favorites. I am an inspired individual. I love to leaf through magazines, search catalogs and scour the Internet in search of just the right piece. Whatever it may be that I’m looking for. Often I/we (my husband and I) run into fabulous things that we absolutely love. We keep these things on a list if they one day fit into what we need/the look we’re going for, etc. I think it’s a good thing that we don’t buy what we want when we want it, because when we look back over our lists, things that we loved (usually related to home, like furniture, lighting, bedding, etc.) at one time are not things that we still love now. Whew! Let me also point out that I realize that THINGS are just things. They can be replaced. So when I say “I love” this or that, I am mindful that they are just things, but things that make a house a home 🙂 Continue reading “Some Of My Favorites… Sharp Task Lamps!”
