The Griffon

I do love this little pub in Charleston, South Carolina. There is something so simple about it, and I loved the simple wreaths out front. Have a safe night out there everyone! Happy New Years!

Gingerbread Biltmore

I liked the setting of this as much as I liked the Gingerbread House at The Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina.

Christmas At Graceland

Christmas is my favorite time to visit Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee. It is so pretty with all the decorations up.

Santa Gets a Present

Even Santa deserves a present at Christmas time. I took this at the Thomasville, Georgia Christmas Pageant as well.

Christmas in the Library

Also at The Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina. What a great room, and even better decked out for the holidays.

A Biltmore Christmas

I’m going to try and get a few Christmas photos up from the last couple of weeks in honor of the season. Wishing you all a very happy holiday season, wherever you are. This is at the Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina. I love the triple fireplace.

South Carolina Sunset

Wildfires in the area made for some beautiful sunsets. This is outside of Charleston, South Carolina.

The Holy City

The prevalence of beautiful churches in Charleston, South Carolina has led to it being called The Holy City. This is St. Phillip’s Cathedral and a beautiful palm lined street.

A Very Pink House

If Barbie lived in Charleston, South Carolina, I think she would live here. It is pretty amazing architecture though.

Charleston House

This is set in Charleston, South Carolina. The car, interestingly enough, is a 1985 British Coach Works Model 52 “Schweppes Special Edition” – a replica of a 1952 MG TD. It was produced and raffled off as part of a promotion for soft drinks. Still pretty cool!

Charleston Cemetary

This is the cemetery next to the Circular Congregational Church in Charleston, South Carolina. The church in the background is St. Philip’s Episcopal.

These are the slave quarters on Boone Hall Plantation just outside of Charleston, South Carolina.

Old Sheldon Church

This is the ruin of the Old Sheldon Church near Yemassee, South Carolina built way back in the 1750s. Ravaged by fire, war and looting through the tumultuous history of the Old South, it is a beautiful and quiet site today. Spectacular!

Big Sky Over Texas

This sky really made me smile – such great clouds. This is over Big Bend National Park in Texas.
