Every spring, Charleston, South Carolina welcomes visitors to their Historic House and Garden Tours.

I reached into my archives to share these springtime memories from Charleston.

The window boxes are divine.

My favorite house…the Thomas Rose house on Church Street

The Thomas Rose house, built in 1735, is one of the oldest examples of Early Georgian architecture and has the original Georgian paneling inside.

Not all homes are big and grand in Charleston.  Many of the smaller homes have their own charm, especially the ones with courtyard gardens.

Watch for an upcoming series on right sizing, my term for better utilization of space.  Smaller homes can be magnificent, especially when taking advantage of the outside… courtyard gardens, porches, patios and terraces.

Please subscribe to this blog, above right sidebar, so you won’t miss this upcoming series.

Come celebrate with me.  I’ll save you a seat at the table.
