I am still around! Social media has been on the back burner as Jim and I start getting serious about relocating to a warmer climate. There is a lot of planning and research involved so we will see! I am going to try and keep up with blogging during this time.
We headed to South Carolina to browse neighborhoods but then worked some fun into that trip by stopping in picturesque Charleston.
Here I am sharing one of my favorite things about the city, its iron work.
This place is a feast for the eyes.
Everywhere you look there is a nook or detail that commands your attention.
Residents are required to maintain a certain look when renovating so there is quite a cohesion when strolling the streets.
Some are more simple and others very ornate.
I learned watching a local PBS show This Old House (not sure if this airs across the country) that they have a school for the various trades needed to keep up with renovations in Charleston. These Boston guys have been working on a house down there and showed the students working on gates. So fascinating and an amazing trade for these young folks!
As you can imagine I have tons of photos to share. So I will be back with more!
Thank you for stopping by! ~Val
