Hi from Savannah and email subscription fix

Hi everyone!

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!


  1. I want to order some of those napkins! The monogram choices are beautiful. I think next time I'm in Savannah, I will invite you to be my tour guide! I've never quite bonded with Savannah. I like it. But usually I'm interested to getting back to my HHI enclave ASAP! I haven't heard of your son's store. Probably trouble for me, being the product junkie that I am! Thanks for the tour. And I must see that antique store! Glad you're enjoying a getaway.

  2. I have always wanted to visit - now even more so!

  3. Pick me up next time, I want to go to Savannah too Cindy :)

  4. Oh how nice: wouldn't mind being there now! Somehow we have avoided The Pink House, always thinking it must be too touristy. But everyone loves it and says how good it is…so next time we will make reservations. We stayed at The Planters Inn right across the street last year: not so great…
    We are off on another adventure tomorrow, will post on Instagram!

  5. I've never been to Savannah, and would love to visit. We'll be at the beach soon for vacation, about 2 hours north of Savannah. If we have a rainy day, we may venture down there, or to Beaufort, which is another place I've never been. Once at the beach, it's hard to tear ourselves away, unless it's rainy. I think we'll have at least one day of rain (hopefully not more). I'm so glad you had a nice vacation and visit with your son!

  6. Happy Anniversary to both of you! That painting is gorgeous, I thought Arvind was getting it for your anniversary gift! :) Hope you're all doing well!


I would love to hear from you!
