We are visiting Savannah this week to celebrate our anniversary and our youngest son's 20th birthday. Weather has been great, breezy and not too humid the first few days but typical Savannah September weather returned yesterday which is just fine, just look for shade. Which Savannah has lots and lots of!
We are staying in a townhouse on Jones Street which I highly recommend. Safe, beautiful architecture and complete canopy of oaks. Parking has not been a problem either. We are just around the corner from the pretty shops on Whitaker Street...Number Four Eleven, Circa Lighting, One Fish Two Fish.
Some of the monogram choices at Number Four Eleven...
What do you think of this link style?
Or this one? I like both. These were my favorites, modern and updated.
Spools of monogram thread choices.
We never tire of strolling the beautiful squares. There is no where else on earth that looks like this! The most beautiful city neighborhoods under canopies of oaks. We explored Alex Raskin Antiques, which houses four floors of antiques in an elegant crumbling old home. Amazing place.
It faces Monterey Square, the same square as The Mercer Williams House, famous home written about in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
Son at work with husband as his customer. He works at Prospector Co., a nice shop at the end of Broughton Street near Marc Jacobs and Kate Spade. They sell their own line of men's grooming products and very unique, well chosen gifts.
We visited the gorgeous modern Jepson Center that is part of the Telfair Museums. I love this painting "Squall over Savannah" by Ray Ellis. The Whitfield Lovell exhibit was haunting. The Jepson's exterior is a huge glass window that reveals the beautiful Telfair Square.

We also have enjoyed food! Southern meals at the The Olde Pink House,
the southern Italian restaurant The Florence ,
and the French bistro, Circa 1875.
Also some yummy macarons from Marche aux Macaron!
So that's it from Savannah.
Also there have been some bugs with the email subscription gadget on the blog. I think I fixed it. If anyone has a problem, please let me know!
Thanks for visiting!
