Breakfast in Savannah

While on the way back from Tybee Island last weekend, we stopped in Savannah for breakfast.  Headed to Clary’s, the restaurant made famous in the book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.  Did you read that one? I got a signed copied of the book in Savannah back in the mid-90’s when the book was all the rage and enjoyed the story tremendously.  I remember hearing about this breakfast spot when I read the book.  It was fun to finally visit this spot and it didn’t disappoint.

Clary’s, have you been?


Quaint and cute inside.

We sat outside on the sidewalk, just like in Europe.  It was a beautiful morning watching people and taking in the historic street.

My choice of breakfast was stuffed French toast.  Golden perfection, stuffed with strawberries and cream cheese between the layers and dolloped with a big helping of whipped cream.  Yum, it was good!

While walking the street, I couldn’t help but admire the homes and architecture in the historic district of Savannah.

These row houses are so fascinating to me.

All colors and hues of pink and color.

The architecture reminds me of New Orleans.

Stately brick is always classic.  Those huge sprawling live oak trees dripping with moss add to the character of Savannah.

Beautiful lanterns and entryways.

Tall shutters and check out the leafy detail of the ironwork on the windows.

I love a beautiful grand entrance like this with all the gorgeous millwork.

savannah st. john the baptist cathedral

The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Savannah, one of the prettiest churches I’ve ever seen.  Those double spires are so tall and you can see them from far away.

Madison Square.

Even though I didn’t get to have a long visit in Savannah this time, breakfast was a treat and getting to take in a few of the squares along the way was a highlight.  I love Savannah so much and can’t get enough of this historic beauty in Georgia.  Have you been to Savannah and do you love it too?  There’s so much history and beauty to take in!

Fall Decorating 2014


I love Fall!  It's truly my second favorite season of the year, right after Spring. I’m  not a huge Fall decorator, but I do enjoy a few touches around my house.  Most of what I use are things that I’ve had for a long time and I don’t usually go out and buy stuff for Fall décor.  And I like to keep things sort of natural and neutral. Nothing that is over the top Fall for me. Nothing against … Read More»

Outdoor Lantern Solar Lighting


One of the things I wanted to accomplish after getting my front yard landscaped was adding landscape lights.  And wow, have these changed over the years.  You can still put in those landscape lights that have buried lines and plug them into an electrical outlet, but solar lights have also improved over the years.  I remember a few years ago I tried solar lights and they were not very bright.  I … Read More»
