Icy, cold winter here has gotten the better of me. I no longer want to live forever in a place I have to remove my shoes at the door. Still this is a terribly complicated matter. We ADORE our friends in Minneapolis. I LOVE my work and my clients and this is where my work is. So, I imagine doing something flexible and creative and seamless when it comes to serving my clients. And, still, I don't know exactly how that will work. But, I've done it before when I lived half time in NYC. We are keeping our beautiful 510 apartment as the home base for my business. Mostly I am hoping and expecting to enrich my life and my work by spending time in Charleston. For now, we'll rent the condo on VRBO except for the times we'll want to be there.
******Just this week I purchased 4 pieces of furniture from Charleston for clients in Minneapolis and arranged to have them shipped here. Antiques ROCK in Charleston!*******
A few snips and snaps:
|1860 Greek Revival - the first floor is our home - with that GREAT PIAZZA |
( Charleston's name for the more pedantic "porch". )
|Image with the blow up mattress and nothing else. Original heart pine floors c. 1860 and fireplace.|
|Piazza with great view of Palmetto tree and church steeple. |
This is furniture the owner's left for us - perfectly useful for now!
|French doors in both of the main rooms onto the piazza. Crazy beautiful indoor - outdoor living.|
|This is the in process bedroom after some the antiques were delivered and before|
room is painted...But after I was trying out the colors on the walls!
|Another view of the Bedroom - with great old vintage wingback chairs I found|
in Charleston in musty green leather.
