Charleston = Inspiration

We had the chance to visit Charleston a week or so ago.  Beautiful place!  I loved the houses and the shopping.  We ate at a really great BBQ place called Sticky Fingers. The only thing better than the food was the service. HIGHLY recommend it.  We also stopped by the Moon Pie General Store. It was so much fun. For those of you non-southerners out there...RC and Moon Pie is what they call the champagne and caviar of the south.

The houses were just incredible and the ironwork was beautiful.  I kept making my husband stop so I could take pictures.  So much inspiration at every turn. There were several patterns that seemed to be repeated in many gates and fences.  Here are a few pictures.

Loved this gate!

But I think I love the shadow it casts even more!

Charleston is definitely a Zentangle kind of town.  I think that we need to do a Master class in Charleston and our homework can be to find patterns on the streets, break them down and teach them to each other!  Lovely place. If you ever have a chance, go.
