the City Market

The City Market is a fun and interesting place to explore!

Lots of bright and colorful things to see!

The four block open air market is open every single day except Christmas, I believe.

So many artists displaying their work

Fun to watch the artists at work!
They are open until ten or ten thirty most evenings, we like to go after the sun goes down in the hot summer months

Lots of vendors offering everything from handcrafted jewelry and art to candles and handcrafted soaps, pottery, sweet grass baskets, and jams and jellies.

Sparkly sparkly purple!

the market is on Meeting Street downtown and there is often free entertainment
A nice way to spend a summer morning or evening...

pretty things in windows

I just love it when people put pretty and interesting things into their windows for passersby to see. Gives me a big smile to see these things as I walk by.
I LOVE this sunny yellow vase!

Little shiny vases in this window, with flowers in them.
This one as well, and some tiny white angels.

I love plants in windows! This is a VERY TALL ONE!

I went closer to try to see the pot better. Pretty floral looks like.

This window caught my attention.

............so I went closer.
Here's a close up look at this nice painting. Lawn chairs on the inlet.
Pretty neat that they put it up into this window for all to enjoy!
This window had a pretty tassel:
I just love a lamp in a window at dusk...looks so warm and safe and welcoming! This lamp was also flanked by two pretty vases with flowers on them.
This one sure caught my attention!
........here's a closer look:
Lots of interesting things in those two top windows!
Let's zoom in for a closer look:
Looks like a little plate, some books propped up, and maybe a basket?
This one is blurry, but that's the best I could do. Can't really tell what all those objects are. Can you?

Paula Deen in Charleston

Paula Deen and her husband were in town a couple of weeks ago promoting her new cookbook.

There was a long line of fans waiting to meet her and get their book signed. Paula spends time with each and every one and makes it a point to visit with everyone and really talk with them. She is very friendly and seems to truly enjoy all who come out to meet her.
Here's the current issue of her magazine, "Cooking with Paula".

and some of the pretty things in it:

I've already read  my copy...and mercy y'all-----those biscuits look so good!!!!
