Southern Hospitality

 Charleston!  Rainbow Row
I met up with my Besties, who I hadn't seen in over 2 years.  It was HOT! Here we are in the waterfront park in a grove of live oaks.
The Pineapple Fountain.  (great crane, huh?)
Strolling through the market.
The Circular Congregational Church and Cemetery
These garden plots are so pretty
Heartbreaking and sweet - this little infant grave.
Pretty gardens. Wrought Iron is everywhere and compliments the gardens and architecture. 
What a great food town!  Here is Husk, a low country restaurant in an old house.
Tiny bakery; Hot Little Biscuits.  check out the address ↑  sweet and savory little buns and grits.
The BEST carpaccio that I've ever had at S.N.O.B. (Slightly North of Broad).
5 Church.  This is a great brunch place.  It is in an old church.
The rafters are hand painted with the text of "The Art of War".
Fun Mimosa flight!
I collected all the pink houses and buildings that I saw.  I was absolutely enchanted by them.  I want one.  They looked like dollhouses.
Thanks for joining us in Charleston.
Happy Friday and October.

  3. Fun trip! Did you read Marie Bostwick's "Restoration of Celia Fairchild"? It included a lot of fun things about Charleston as a back story.

  5. I am so glad you enjoyed your visit. You took some great photos. I graduated from College of Charleston MANY years ago and now live just over the bridge in the old village of Mount Pleasant.

  6. Looks like A WHOLE LOT OF FUN! What's not to love; good friends, good food and something interesting to see around every corner! I really enjoyed visiting Charleston a couple of years ago. So much History and interesting Architecture. If you get a chance to go to Fort Sumpter I would. The boat ride out of the harbor gives a very different view of the city and provides a nice change of pace. Have fun, Safe travels!

  7. This looks like such a refreshing time with friends. So much fun here!
    Love that pineapple fountain.
    Old cemeteries and churches call to me. I have seen flowers growing on graves, but never in that type of concrete garden frame. Just beautiful!
    Can't believe all the pink houses! I agree with Darlynn--wouldn't a pink house quilt be cool?

  17. Charleston is indeed a charming city, and I appreciate this visual reminiscence about being there myself, nearly five years ago (when QuiltCon was in Savannah). Several of those houses look very familiar. I'm glad you had a good time!

  26. My buddy Gail lived in one of those 1/2 houses, and it was pink when we saw it 10+ years ago (oh, too long ago). Glad to hear you ate at SNOB - absolutely loved that place! Even the bathroom - did you use it???? I laughed in delight and felt so wicked when I did. ;-) Thanks for sharing!
