December on Roan Mountain by William Jameson 12×12″ Oil

Doesn’t this painting just scream WINTER? To me it looks like the perfect winter day. I feel like I have taken a hike through Roan Mountain on a sunny day. Crisp and cool with snow, but warmth from the sun makes the hike absolutely perfect! Of course I haven’t been on a hike in the snow (I’m in South Carolina, which rarely sees snow)…

Camellias in Charleston, SC!

Camellia’s in Charleston, SC

Charleston, South Carolina. Always beautiful, always something blooming, even this time of year. Camellias are beautiful flowers and they are abundant here. Some people like to float them in a pretty glass bowl – I snapped this while out on a walk 😉 There was a tulip tree nearby budding, so hoping a frost doesn’t zap it before I can get some beautiful photos!

24 Ocean Springs Boulevard by Our Town Plans!

24 Ocean Springs Boulevard by Our Town Plans!

A pretty remarkable use of outdoor space, right? This plan has a wonderful porch on the main level and a large roof deck above. There is also a screened porch off the back via the master suite (upstairs). I love the carport too! A carport is enough to help keep hail off of your car at least! In sunny South Carolina it would also keep your car out of direct sun, a major bonus!

#75 by Tom Hoitsma 74×60″ Acrylic & Latex on Canvas

We have a mix of art in our home. We love different forms of art and I think they work well together. Paintings can evoke wonderful memories of special places, moments in time. Art makes life more colorful and happy! After 2020, I think ART is something we all need… desperately!

Seabrook and Kiawah, SC

Kiawah, SC

Islands. We love them. We have so many in close proximity. Some feel more “islandy” than others. A friend offered for us to visit her place on Seabrook Island (SC) – we took a quick day trip and were astounded at the beauty. How could something so beautiful be so close? Unless you live or are staying on the island it’s gated. So that’s probably why we’ve never had the opportunity prior to this.

Unfried Fried Rice with Shrimp!

Unfried Fried Rice with Shrimp

Well, this was an unexpected treasure to find! I’ve been hooked on making meals with brown rice, sautéed kale, some sort of bean or pea and usually and egg. Next pass I will make this with an egg (scrambled) and some green onions sprinkled… it’s quick (especially if you sauté a batch of kale early in the week then use it throughout the week).

Between A Rock and A Hard Place by Cody DeLong 40×30″ Oil

Cody DeLong. Many of you probably know about Cody and his incredible work over the years, his paintings continue to wow! I think this painting is so interesting. Just look at the light this painting has in it – look at the water which is so incredible with it’s subtleness. Beautiful! The background (jaw dropping Grand Canyon) is gorgeous and I love the bighorn sheep – especially the one that’s on the move. It brings this stunning painting to life!

View from a morning walk…

View from a morning walk… Charleston, SC

The other morning my husband and I went for a walk – it was such a nice day. We are so fortunate to be so close to the most beautiful scenery ever! The ever changing vista (colors of the marsh grass, level of water that changes due to the tides, the birds, etc). Absolutely spectacular! This was one of our views…
