Hello Raleigh

Well I arrived safely in Raleigh.  I am slowly but surely unpacking boxes and will share some sneak peeks soon.  We went out to a burger joint called Chuck's in downtown Raleigh.

See website here.  I have to say it was one of the best burgers I have ever had.  I ordered mine with crushed avocado, bacon onion jam and blistered red peppers.  SO DELICIOUS!

Hope you have a lovely Labor Day weekend.

Goodbye Beaufort

Well it's only been 2 1/2 years living in Beaufort and is time for me to say goodbye!  It's been a wonderful experience for me living in a sleepy, little coastal town on the coast!  

I will also miss the Southern sayings such as:  ya'll, bless your heart and being addressed as Ms. Kelly.

Even though I have a new journey to follow, I will still miss the Low Country.  Hope you will come back to visit and join me on my journey to North Carolina and helping me find the perfect HOME SWEET HOME!

So I will leave you with some of my favorites shots that I have cherished while living in the LOW COUNTRY!

Hunting Island Beach:  (only a fifteen minute drive from where I live)



There are shops located here along Bay Street and the roof top is where weddings are held.

Years ago this was a pharmacy, however, today it is a restaurants that serves burgers, sandwiches, etc.

Rhett Gallery - where you can find beautiful Low Country art located on Bay Street.

M Interiors along Bay Street including Modern Jewelers.

Waterfront Park

I enjoyed swinging on the swings in this photo and catching some sights of dolphins frolicking in the Beaufort River.....

My Favorite Restaurants:

Saltus Grill

Another one of our favorite restaurants in Beaufort is Saltus Grill.  My neighbor just recently took us there for a farewell dinner.  It was wonderful......

One of my favorite restaurants in Beaufort - Old Bull Tavern located off of Bay Street.  They have awesome brick oven pizzas.

And last but not least a hidden gem that serves the best Italian food in Beaufort - Griffins Market.

Historic Homes:

One of my favorite homes located on The Point in Beaufort.

Another beautiful home with gorgeous boxwood gardens....

Love the hammock on the second level porch....


You can also view my final tour of my home in Beaufort here.

Now onto my move to RALEIGH!

Ballard Designs Love

Recently I received the catalog for Ballard Designs.  While flipping through it and drooling at mostly every page, I picked out some items that I fell in love with:

Here they are:

I love anything with pom poms!
Loving the design and simplicity of this chandelier.....
 I tried to find these pizza paddles while vacationing in Italy but had no luck.....
Love the design on the rugs....
Love this table, you could practically use it in many rooms of a house
Well I guess I will stop there, however, there were so many more items that I could show you.  You can also go online to view their items if you do not receive the catalog in the mail. 
So tell me do you also receive the Ballard Designs catalog in the mail?  Have you purchased anything from Ballard lately?
Well I better get working on my lasagna that I am preparing for dinner.  Then more packing to do.....time is going quickly for me....Thursday the movers come to load up the moving van....WOW!
Thanks for stopping by.

My Home Sold and Final Tour

I have exciting news.  We sold our home here in Beaufort.  Now for the happy news, we are moving sometime in August to Raleigh, NC.  I am so excited for our new adventure!

Actually I have mixed emotions about  leaving Beaufort, SC but I am excited to be living closer to my son, daughter-in law and family!

I thought this was a perfect time to share my last tour of my home here!  Since we only stayed here a little over two years in the home, there were some projects that I wanted to do but knew in the back of my mind that we were moving.  So now, I will be looking forward to doing these projects in my new home!  (bead board in powder room, plank walls in master bedroom, PB lighting in kitchen, etc.)

And now for the tour.....

Take care!
