Turquoise in the Lowcountry

                                         
Talk about curb appeal! Here is your first installment of vacation pics! The Lowcountry between Charleston and Savannah is filled with some of the prettiest homes I've ever seen! The cutest front porches and piazzas with their Haint Blue ceilings, the biggest live oaks and pretty palmetto palm trees that seem to perfectly frame every home, and so much history to go along with the architecture...it was easy to imagine what life must have been like so long ago! Above were some of my favorite homes in Charleston, Beaufort, Palmetto Bluff and Savannah–click on those to learn more about each place! I still have lots more photos to share, but I hope you enjoyed seeing these homes as much as I did!

**I want to give big thank you to my photo-assistant/driver/cute husband Chris who helped me take all of these pics! How many times I said "Stop! Hold on! I have to take picture!" I'm blessed with a very patient and supportive partner! :)

I also have an exciting update on this week's Plush Pumpkin giveaway! The generous LoveFeast Table girls want to make the giveaway even better! There will now be TWO winners! In addition to someone winning the turquoise pumpkin trio, another House of Turquoise reader will win this adorable Large Plush Acorn Nest in Turquoise! So be sure to enter the giveaway right here if you haven't already! Thanks LoveFeast Table!!

Loved looking through these, especially because Charleston is my hometown! Made me a little homesick, actually. :)

You take great photos you should do it more though I love everything you show. You do have a patient hubby mine hates when I want to stop to take photos.

OMG, Erin, these pics are gorgeous! I'm *loving* this style architecture so much - the tin roofs? *Sigh!* What's the saying? "Lord let me die on a sleeping porch with a tin roof during a summer rain at twilight." When I first saw the pics, I was wondering where they were from, then instantly thought, "Oh, these are Erin's vacation pics ... nice!" while simultaneously thinking, "OMG, poor Chris!" I can just hear you saying "STOP THE CAR!" and Chris having to hit the brakes at every other house. You guys must have had so much fun. Cannot wait to see the rest of your pics!

Thanks for sharing,

Kimberly

In all the images the design have a soothing relief as all of them are airy and full of light that make your life much brighter
And the lights give different colors to your environment at night time
That will make your sugary time cherished
