One more beauty I spotted for its non-traditional colors. Before you ask, the door is crooked on purpose, the bottom cut of the door matches the slant of the porch. Also, copper gas lamps make this very Charleston.
The colors of a wintering tidal marsh. I love it! And the excitement in Gracie’s face this morning as she showed me the sparkly frosty leaves. Lots of sun means I don’t mind the temps briefly dipping overnight.
Lemons are a favorite potted plant in Charleston. They remind me every winter of visiting grandparents in Florida over the holidays. As kids we thought it was amazing that we could pick our own oranges, grapefruits, figs, and avocados from their backyard.
Colors, looking up, and an exercise in perspective. // I usually just say “pretty” in my captions, but when I shoot “pretty” it can look like a squirrel after a nut who suddenly freezes in the middle of a busy road for no apparent reason. 😍
Happy Sunday, friends! Here in Charleston we have lots of churches, lots of very old churches. Christmas decorations are often very Southern and very meaningful. This swag is full of apples, pears, lemons, dried hydrangea, and pine cones.
I’ll pause after this one. This one makes me swoon because it looks like a painting from a Christmas book I used to read my boys when they were little. The colors of the perfect pantina match the draperies. The pastel watercolor version of Christmas.
