I a-DOOR You!

Hello my friends,
What a wonderful time I have had attending the 'Home and Garden Festival' with my sister-in-law in Charleston, SC.
 
 
(here I am standing outside of our B&B, the John Rutledge Inn)
 
I'm sporting my hat to keep the sun off of my face.  We could not have asked for more beautiful weather!
 
She signed us up for three events and got reservations at some of the most fabulous restaurants.
 
We have traipsed the streets of Charleston up and down numerous times for the entire week.
 
I snapped a ton of photos and today I want to share with you some of the gorgeous doors of Charleston.
 



 
 
 


 
You'll find them in all sorts of colors.  Some are very fancy, some are just sweet, and others may be a bit rustic.
but
no matter what, I a-DOOR them!
 
Still at the end of the day when we've walked what seems like 100 miles,  I always look forward to finding this door.  (wink)
 
 
And now for a fun announcement. . .
The sweet gals from Thoughts of Home Link Party have invited
Share Your Cup to join them in a monthly garden party that will run through the summer months.
 
Our regular Share Your Cup will still continue each week.
 
 
It will start April 25th.  Please mark your calendars and get your garden or floral posts ready to come join us.
 
It's sure to be a wonderful time.
 
If you're like me and love to spend time in the garden it's always a delight to see what others have done! And nothing helps to brighten your day more than flowers!
 
hugs,
Jann

I will be sharing with these lovely parties:

Dear Jann:
You should read Laura Child's tea murder mystery's as they are all set in Charleston. People are always looking their in the historic district trying to find the Indigo Tea Room (which is fiction) from her books. Have fun!

What a special time to be in Charleston. I've been fortunate to visit Charleston twice and would love to go back for the home and garden festival. Thanks for sharing your photos.
I've marked the Garden Party date on my calendar. Thanks!

I bet you girls had a ball, and the doors are just magnificent. I bet the garden party will be a big hit! I do hope you will show us some more pictures!
Hugs, Roxy

So many gorgeous doors. It sounds as if you have had the most wonderful week. I agree, nothing makes a gal more happy than the door with the 'Ladies' sign above it. =)

Stacey said...

Good morning, Jann. You look so cute! I haven't been to Charleston but it's definitely on my list. The doors are amazing.

What a perfect time to go to Charleston, before it gets so HOT. Sounds like you had a terrific time. There is so much to see there.

Looking forward to the new party and will have to get my pretties ready.

Have a great time there.

Dear Jann, it has snowed 6 out of the last 10 days of April...and it's freezing cold. Daffodils are up---but refuse to open. Hard to even imagine we will have any garden to show. Thanks for the invite though. We visited Charleston in Spring and it is...Gorgeous, Sandi

Pat @ bringingfrenchcountryhome said...

Hi Jann!
It looks like you had a fun time in your "fe-door-a!" Love all the doors. I could spend weeks just admiring different kinds of architecture. See you soon,

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

The doors are gorgeous! It looks so quaint there....my kind of place. I really, really hope that Spring has arrived by April 25th so I can have a garden to post about. It is in the mid 30's here right now :-(

Linda W. said...

Lovely collection of doors (and homes too). Looks like a wonderful trip!

Rose L said...

I love the spider web window above the first door!!!
I am always attracted to old doors and there are many here in Oregon City.

Mary Ann Potter said...

Oh, I loved these photos! Charleston is a very special city, and I'm so delighted you got to see it. Nifty door collection. Nifty everything there!!!

Jillian's Bella Rosa Antiques said...

Beautiful architecture! I walked around Savannah once while visiting a local TV station there for an interview. It was all just stunning. Thank you for sharing your trip!

How lovely - I have never been to Charleston but it's on my list! And to go to a home and garden show there? Heaven, pure heaven! Glad you had a good time!! :)

You, dear friend, look adorable sporting your "shade" hat!
What fun taking a "walking tour" of the City of Charleston!

Hi Jann, Charleston seems like such a romantic land of yesteryear place! How lucky you are to have visited and stayed in such a great place. I enjoyed seeing what you a-door!
Happy Wednesday!

I love Charleston and all it's beautiful homes, doors and gates. It's a great city to tour and we got to spend a day there a few years ago. I'd love to go back and see more! Your Garden Party posts will be fun to see Jann. I'm really looking forward to the season coming up. Blessings, Pam

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Oh, Jann, how marvellous that you got to visit that splendid city! I have been wanting to visit ever since I started reading Laura Childs' tea shop mysteries which take place there. Maybe someday...

Blessings,
Sandi
