The Beauty of Charleston

Just six hours away from our home in North Carolina, we can visit the city of Charleston, South Carolina, and it almost feels like being in another country.  I say this because the old historic part of Charleston has a very old-world look and feel to it.  We usually hear at least one foreign language spoken while we're there -- often French, sometimes German, Japanese, and the King's English, spoken with a British accent.  😉

Re-Visiting My Favorite Tablescapes Over the Years

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.  This is a special TT because this week makes Susan's 500th Tablescape Thursday since she began her blog.  Congratulations, Susan, -- that's quite a milestone!!  We're all invited to share some of our favorite tablescapes that we've created over the years, so I decided to join in.   You can click on the links provided with each group of pictures to see the full tablescape post.  There are other tablescapes in my decorating category at the top of the blog page.  Just hover over "Decorating" and click on "Tablescapes."  Thank you, Susan, for hosting Tablescape Thursday.
I'll begin with a tablescape from 2014, which I put together to participate in a challenge Cuisine Kathleen hosted on her blog and also to celebrate our wedding anniversary that May.

April in Charleston

Hello everyone!  How was your week?  It's been a while since I've posted, but we've had so much going on here.  We had some tree work done, which I'll write more about later.  We got back home yesterday evening from a four-day trip to Charleston, South Carolina -- one of our favorite places to visit.

Airlie Gardens

Last weekend while at the coast, we visited Airlie Gardens in Wilmington on Easter Sunday afternoon.  My in-laws had been before, but we didn't even know this place existed.  It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

Frogmore Stew

Hi friends!  This year's weather has been one for the record books.  I say this because yesterday it was mostly sunny and very pleasant all day.  Our bedroom felt stuffy last night, so I opened the window a small amount to get the fresh air, and may I say I'm loving these replacement windows, as they're so easy to open and close whenever I want to.  Anyway, we were rather rudely awakened about 5:45 this morning by hail pounding on the outside of the windows.  Such a racket, and this was followed by heavy rain and intense winds for a half hour or more.  I'm just thankful that no tall trees came down on our house.
I mentioned in my previous post that we spent Easter weekend at the coast, and it was much colder there than usual for early April.  We still had fun, though.

Easter at the Beach

Happy April!  Are things in bloom where you live?  It seems that everything has burst into bloom here.  Our Redbud tree is covered with blooms, and so is our Dogwood.
We spent the Easter holiday at the beach this year; it was the first time we've ever done that.
