Road Trip…


I’m currently in the beautiful Low Country of South Carolina.  Beaufort to be exact.  There’s nothing better than sitting on the back porch drinking coffee, looking at Half Moon Creek on the Whale Branch River.  These are the moments I’m very thankful for…. as well as family (of course).  My hunny was born and raised here, which means lots of visits squeezed into a few days.

My lovely sister-in-law, Mary, and I decided to run to Downtown Beaufort to check out some of my favorite shops before Black Friday.  I’m so glad I went, there have been a few new stores since our last visit.  One store REALLY caught my eye, “M Home”.

Walking into the store I was welcomed by an array of ornaments ranging from whales to mushrooms.  All had a new spin whether it was glitter or cloth, they were all lovely & wanted to come home with me…but I had to peel myself away from them.  This place had some much going on (in a good way).  There were tons of mercury glass votive in a rainbow of colors, ceramic animals that were wall mounted, a beautiful Ikat print, vintage bicycle rims turned wall sconces, rustic serving trays, and lots of other eye goodies.  I was in love with that store.  I snapped a few pictures before leaving. *Please excuse my skank pictures, I’m still waiting on the Nikon from Santa*

My first thought when I saw that rhino – Young House Love!

This was a GORGEOUS white-washed driftwood star {swoon}

This little fella is a bottle top opener made from a bicycle chain… which also screamed YHL.

I had to keep my hands behind my back, or else I would have sprinted walked out of there with maxed out credit cards.

We shopped around for a little bit more, and then I found myself a little knee-high Beyonce, but restrained from buying her (after reading this post, I look for them every time I shop – which there are lots of these fellas out there!).

It’s not as awesome as the original, but it still needs a home!

SO far I’ve had a wonderful Thanksgiving-Eve.  I’m looking forward to the Beef Stew my father-in-law has on the stove, and the sunset over the river is breathtaking (which you can’t see, because I don’t own a Nikon yet – is the horse dead that I keep beating?).  Thanksgiving will also be fab… I can’t wait to see more family & of course enjoy a huge plate of food.  Happy Thanksgiving Ya’ll!
