About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center.

This is one of the elegant old houses in the battery area. There are such strict ordinances in this area of the city that when a homeowner wants to paint his home, he must first petition the society and is given three choices of paint colors to select from......

And here is the John Rutledge House, one of the many beautiful homes located in the downtown area.
There is an open air market located in the old slave quarters nearby, where slaves were auctioned off to the highest bidders. The best way to view the area and learn about its history is to take a carriage ride. There are a number of companies that offer carriage tours that originate at the old slave quarters. Charleston is a truly beautiful city and I'd like to visit again someday. Hope you enjoyed my post and have an awesome Tuesday!
