Valentine's weekend in Charleston

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend getaway in the Charleston, SC area. Here are a few pics--I will be posting more about it later.

Ps. Don't ever let your hubby buy over 20 roasted garlic cloves from Whole Food Market and never let him eat them all at dinner time on Valentine's DAY---NOT ROMANTIC!!!!!!!

I have been away in Charleston for Valentine's Day weekend

I have been away so I will have to get caught up on blogging at some point. I had a wonderful time in Charleston, SC, Mount Pleasant, and Georgetown. I will post more at a later date. BUT one observation on How to RUIN VALENTINE's DAY : do not let your hubby buy over 20 roasted garlic cloves from Whole Foods Market and do not let him eat them!! hooooweee--bad, very bad!! other than that we had a great weekend.

critters are eating my patio umbrella!!!

I posted about this on my nannykim blog , but had to add it here. Since it does relate to my home. I was shocked to find that some critters have been tearing up my patio umbrella!! I hope it is one of the 8 squirrels that hang out in my yard!! and NOT a rat!! YIKERS. Glad it is an old umbrella that needs replacing!!

Old Clock

I love this old clock. The glass fell out of it and I can't get it back in....But it still runs. This either belonged to my Grandfather who lived to be 102 and a half! (He died back in the early 80's so I don't know how old the clock is) or it belonged to my Great Aunt. I am not sure which one owned it. ANYways it still works.!! I love the mellow tick tock of an old clock and of course the chimes.

I have placed it on my Mantel where it seems to like it better than the bookcase area where I have had it. The interesting thing is it has its desires ---ha!! Probably it does better here because it is a bit more level!!

Got to love it


I love these really big bowls. They must hold about 4 cups!! They are by Corelle. I love this because I can microwave it and it doesn't overflow. Plus, after all, they are red and of my favs.
