A Love of Charleston

One of the blessings of living in South Carolina is being able to drive to
Charleston in a few hours. It is a beautiful historical city with so much to see and do. I never tire of riding and looking at the houses and churches.
We have Charleston prints in our house and lake cottage. Some of these belonged to David's mother, a big lover of Charleston. Mrs. Boykin also collected the Sheila Charleston houses and buildings. Many of these are displayed in our lake cottage and some are in our den at home. The sweet grass roses and little sweet grass baskets are treasures from Mrs. B's collection. Her favorite Charleston house was 2 Meeting Street.
There is a surprise behind two of the Charleston prints hanging in our living room. My bridal portraits from the first marriage are behind them. We looked for prints that would fit into the frames to continue using them. Someday, someone will discover them and wonder who the bride is.
Several years ago, we found a set of dishes with Charleston buildings on them. They are used for entertaining at the lake.
