The whole car incident set us back one day, so we didn't get as much time as we would have liked in Charleston and Savannah.  We started the one full day off in Charleston with cereal, a good friend's hospitality, and a screened in back porch (one of the biggest things I miss about growing up in the south); and we ended the day in Savannah at a new friend's store + house combo. I died and went to heaven in this place. There, we fell in love with weeping willows, spring humidity, southern hospitality, and Custard. This is another big little boutique that blew my mind.  We had a blast with its owner, Tara, and I pretty much feel like we walked out with a new friend.  I think we spent over 5 hours in her sensational shop.  She even had us upstairs where she made us a drink and showed us her gorgeous home.  We stood on her balcony and talked about things that had nothing to do with why we came there.  I love that. Suffice it to say, I am crazy excited to send a first order to Custard.  Tara was especially into the new betsy & iya Origins line.

Betsy!! yay! looks like you’re having fun and success! That dress that’s on the dress-form in the last picture? The “bubble” dress with the green circular pattern? I have that dress! I LOVE THIS STORE!!! I want everything in it. It reminds me of Folly, right down the street from you (where, actually, I bought that same dress).

Anyway, I just got really excited. Too much coffee… basically just wanted to say hi and yay that you’re having a great trip. I now want to move to NC.

hearts. oxoxox

Savannah and Charleston are true treasures, so full of charm. I need to go there soon, if for no other reason, just to revitalize my inner southern heritage. But, I think while I’m there, I might as well take wagons full of that spanish moss hanging from the oak trees, and drape them over my Maryland trees. I am really enjoying reading your blog posts of all of your travels and new accounts, keep em coming! Safe travels!
