Hotel Walking and Window Shopping

Tonight was a good night to go walk around the indoor shops at Charleston Place and the beautiful hotel lobby. 

Their huge chandelier is one of my favorites!

The whole place is decorated so pretty. Love all the garlands and greenery and bows
Cute little dog out for some supper and shopping!

Pretty purses, all lined up in  a row:
Only $3,500.00
I think this one was even more--$3,800.00

There's that cute little dog again!

I liked the cute little white ferrets or meerkats or whatever those are in this display!

The indoor train set up was fun to watch!

They even had a little ski lift running up and down!

This is a lovely place to walk around a bit before or after supper and people watch and enjoy the sights and the pretty decorations. I love the shiny floors and all the pretty flowers! And if you get a bit tired---there are plenty of benches to sit a spell!

Let's head outside for some fresh winter air! The city is bustling tonight! The people in the apartment over Victoria's Secret have pretty lights in their windows and a sparkly tree up.

Window shopping is always fun in Charleston! Especially around the holidays.

OOOOO I like that big necklace......

Lets get a closer look!

I spy a pretty tree high above the city sidewalks:

Wow! More purses! We've seen so many purses tonight!

Which one do you like?

Another lovely December evening in the Holy City. I'm so glad y'all came along with us!

Deck the Halls with boughs of Holly

I love what these people did with the tree on the balcony!

It's a beautiful and breezy night in Charleston. We've had our supper and some of us even had dessert. T/V is boring compared to a nice walk and seeing all the winter and holiday sights and smells and sounds! Besides--walking is good for us, right? Please come with us and I bet we see some pretty things! Ready?

This is the other side of the elegant house with the tree on the balcony:

Oh my GOODNESS!--WHAT is that??!

The yellow flowers in these windowboxes are HUGE! You have to completely step out and around to get around them....but nobody complains I'm sure---because they are so PRETTY!

Lovely December flowers!

I LOVE pretty sights like this--a big tall townhouse ablaze with the glow of lights and lamps and wreaths in every window. 

So many wreaths! Wow, it's so pretty!

Rutledge House looks so pretty tonight

Here I am on the steps:

I put my soft fluffy pink jacket and my pink scarf on for this picture---you know---to make it look "wintry"........ha ha LOL---that lasted as long as it took to take this picture and I was burning up and that jacket and scarf came OFF! LOL It was in the 70s that night.
(above--upstairs apartment decorated and glowing)

I must've been seeing things......I could've sworn I saw Santa Claus drive a wagon by--and it was all covered in multi color lights! And the horse had lights around it's neck!!

Yes, Charleston has surely "decked her halls"!
"Have yourself a merry little Christmas"!

Wishing all of you a peaceful and happy Christmas, happy Hanukkah, and best wishes for a healthy and happy new year! Thank you to all my readers for another year of faithfully coming here to read, look at my pictures, your comments bless me and the friendships made through here are special.
