Mills House Hotel


Tonight let's go walk to the old Mills House. It was built in 1853 by a a grain merchant named Otis Mills.

It's pretty and pink, and has all that nice ornate decor on the front


Inside the pretty lobby:

A closer look at the chandelier:

The hotel and the surrounding area after the Civil War.....devastation.


My night-time photos were not so great, so I went back during the daytime to get better ones! Here they are!








I wanted this to be a really great picture, but my focus was off. Sigh...........





I love shiny-floor lobbies!

And I LOVE this amazing phone!





and I had a new tunic blouse I'd  been wanting to wear....




A pretty and relaxing spot



the flowers are peeking in! LOL

Here are scenes from another lovely pink hotel in Charleston, the Meeting Street Inn.
They also have a lovely courtyard area where a fountain echoes and flowers and trees grow.






WHOOOSH!!--one of my favorite big scarves

 A big wind was blowing up and raindrops were approaching.....we hurried on home!

Street Garden


I love it when we see street gardens. This is a recent one that had gorgeous flowers!






I call them "street gardens" because they literally are usually a very small area right at the curb, where people start small gardens. Many of them are in ground, and many add container gardens, large and small, as well.
Here's another street garden that caught my eye.
This one has a great variety! and lots of color.

A tisket A tasket......

A BEAUTIFUL BASKET!


Spotted these at the local home center. Aren't they just gorgeous? The little petunias fluttering in the warm spring breezes and wow!--- that blue sky!
The beautiful beads and the little butterflies make them especially pretty.
I just fell in love with them.

So...........orange or purple? Which would YOU CHOOSE?
