In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

The end of our trip...

One thing that's good to do on a rainy day in Charleston, is to go to the market.
 
It's several long buildings (some even have air conditioning now!) that was used for food and meat sales way back in the day.  Now it's used to sell stuff....and as you know, I do not need stuff.


 I did, however, buy a new latte' mug!  I really love it.  It's a blue on one side and a teal on the other with a palmetto tree on both sides!  And I bought it from this young lady. And maybe you can help me out here.  She said to "like" her on facebook under Kate's Kiln Creations.  I've looked and looked for her and I can't find her.  She did not give me a business card so I'm not sure if she is spelling it Kate's Kiln Kreations, Cate's Kiln Creations...you know what I mean.  If you find her...in Charleston, get me the correct spelling will ya?  Business cards are important...even if you do advertise on facebook.

 Also, when we were shopping, I found a store totally devoted to honey!  I couldn't believe it.  I also couldn't believe their prices!  They even had a tasting bar.  I did not taste because we just finished eating.  Maybe next time. 
 I did buy a cookbook full of Old Favorite Honey Recipes.
 And I had many more, and better, pictures, but I lost them when I lost the pictures on my phone.  At least I got these few back. 
  
Of course, my phone saved the blurry pic!  I was showing how pretty honey is when it's back-lit!
So, I'm going to end the trip today, but I might post random pics now and then...because...well...I can!
I think I mentioned we had to leave a day early because of Tropical Storm Andrea.  Well, we thought we'd stop in Gatlinburg, TN.  We just drove through it.  Only stopped at one place.  We decided it might be a good idea for another trip...but it was just full of people and stores and I guess we were more for relaxing.
 So we drove through the mountains and enjoyed the views.  Then we went on to visit our friends in Kentucky.  Now this is relaxing!  Mimosas in the morning...
Pool during the day...
 
And we hang out in 'the building' in the evening!
And have fun!   
And I can't believe I just posted a picture of me with no make-up on...but peeps, that's what we do.  When we are there, we are relaxed!  Can you tell?!?!!

  1. Good to relax! Looks like a wonderful place your friends shared with you along with thier time. Love the mug. I forgot to tell you that I tasted honey from macadamia tree pollen while I was in Hawaii. Now ask me why I did not have any shipped home with my coffee....I am a silly goose. My honey is almost gone from my favorite bee lady and I hope to have you save me some for me again this year. I will send $$$ ahead to put some on hold! he heehee...please?

  3. The visit with friends... that's the best part of the trip in my book. You certainly made it look like fun! (And people who look like THAT without make-up don't need it. Just sayin'). :)

    Blessings, Debbie

    1. We did drive all the way to Charleston...and back! 14 hours. Two days to get there. I HATE to fly. I used to not mind it...and I think this happened to me because I used to make fun of my EX-husband because he used to get all wound up flying....I now get heart palps and all anxious and such when I fly. So I Drive whenever possible. Crazy huh?

    1. I think I probably skipped that booth. I'm not big into hot sauces. I sort of just scanned the booths...except for a few of them.
      Sounds funny though.
