My Home Sold and Final Tour


I have exciting news.  We sold our home here in Beaufort.  Now for the happy news, we are moving sometime in August to Raleigh, NC.  I am so excited for our new adventure!

Actually I have mixed emotions about  leaving Beaufort, SC but I am excited to be living closer to my son, daughter-in law and family!

I thought this was a perfect time to share my last tour of my home here!  Since we only stayed here a little over two years in the home, there were some projects that I wanted to do but knew in the back of my mind that we were moving.  So now, I will be looking forward to doing these projects in my new home!  (bead board in powder room, plank walls in master bedroom, PB lighting in kitchen, etc.)

And now for the tour.....

Well that is the tour my friends.  Although I have only been in this home in Beaufort, SC for 2 1/2 years, I will still miss it!  However, I am excited for searching for my next HOME SWEET HOME!
I hope you will stop back here in my little blog to see what I am up to!
 
Take care!

Palmetto Bluff - Bluffton, SC - Tour of 2014 Idea House

Happy Thursday!

I wanted to share a video of the 2014 Idea House of Palmetto Bluff, SC sponsored by Southern Living.

I happen to live about 1/2 hour from Palmetto Bluff.  It is a residential community including a preserve, golf course, and equestrian center and marina, tennis and many other amenities.

There are a range of homes from small cottages to larger homes.  If you are ever in the SC area, this is a great place to see some beautiful home models.  The photos are beautiful but to be there in person is absolutely breath taking!

There is also a resort located at Palmetto Bluff which includes cottages, cottage suites and villas that families can rent for their family vacation.  Other amenities include:  day spa, fitness center, pool, golf, land and water trails and many more activities for your family to enjoy!

When I first moved to the Low Country, I stayed in one of the cottages and I have to tell you it was enjoying the Low Country at its best! 

I hope you enjoy the tour!

Summertime is Lemonade Time!

What's better on a hot, summer day than a cold glass of lemonade?   Yes, homemade lemonade.

It's so easy to make and is so delicious!  All you need is three ingredients which are:

Lemon Juice -  6 to 8 lemons
1 Cup Water
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Cold Water - 3 to 4 cups


I first dissolve the sugar in 1 cup water and cook over stove on low heat until sugar dissolves.  This makes a simple syrup.  Then I add the squeezed lemon juice to the simple syrup.

The last step is to add another 3-4 cups cold water and stir.















Well now it is time for me to enjoy a nice, cold mason jar filled with the perfect lemonade in my backyard!

I even have some extra lemonade with a pretty straw, would you like some?

Hope you are enjoying your day, too!

Sugar Bakeshop - Charleston, SC


Do you have a sweet tooth?  Well I do at times and one of my favorite places in Charleston is to visit Sugar - a bakeshop in Charleston to take care of my sugar obsession.



They are located at 59 1/2 Cannon Street in Charleston, SC.  They specialize in cookies, cakes and cupcakes.  It's a tiny space filled with glass jars of homemade cookies, plates full of  cupcakes and homemade tarts.  There is also a coffee stand where you can also grab a good cup of coffee to go along with your homemade treat.  No seating is available in the shop, however, there is a cute courtyard with small tables to enjoy.

During the summer months, they also serve Popsicles and homemade lemonade.

Here is the chalkboard on their specials during my visit:








Their cupcakes are delicious....My favorites are coconut, lemon curd, honey, etc.....



Delicious tarts, too!



They also sell tins of cookies during the holidays.  Since I will be moving from SC soon, I know that I will be ordering a tin of their cookies during the holidays!

If you are ever visiting Charleston, you need to stop by Sugar Bakeshop!  You will be glad that you did!
