so i guess now is the time to confess my love of antebellum homes.
i absolutely love them!!!
i think it's the southern belle in me.

i just love how rich with history these home are.
i had the best time listening to my granddaddy tell me stories.
he's quite the charlestonian history buff.

aren't these homes just gorgeous???
my favorite is the big yellow one of the corner.
i want one just like it.

Pin It!

Rachel said...

So which one are you moving into?

They're BEAUTIFUL! I love old houses. Mine is 100 years old this year (but nowhere near as fancy as those!)

They are absolutely wonderful! Some of my favorites are Victorian. I just love the wraparound porches and turrets. Someday, I would just love to live in one for at least a day.

Nanci said...

Yeah, just think of the workmanship it took to build these homes and the people who have refurbished them today! The pics are just wonderful and reminds me of visiting Georgia and the lovely charm of the state.

a trip to Charleston should be on everyone's list. I love the old homes and how they have been preserved.

My greatgrandmother was born in Augusta, Georgia and then lived on a plantation outside Atlanta. After the Civil War she moved to Vermont and my grandmother was born. Grandmother was always a southern belle. I visited Charleston and fell in love with the homes there. This must have been a great vacation. Did you get to stay in one of the homes?

My Mother & I took a trip from VA to southern tip of SC visiting antibellum homes & plantations. What a trip this was ... awesome stately architecture & gorgeous surrounding towns & grounds. TTFN ~Marydon

Hey, I know those houses!!!!!! I lived in Columbia, SC for three years and made it to Charleston as often as I could!

We just moved from Charleston this month. I loved going downtown and seeing all the houses and visiting the market. Did your kids get to play in the fountains at the waterfront park? It really is a beautiful city!

elle said...

Same here. I love houses like these. They just remind me of an old belle sitting very stately. I don't know why!

My daughter has lived in Charleston for the past five years, so we go there two or three times a year - so fun to visit! Did you get to People Places & Quilts? Great (and only) Charleston quilt shop!

I love older homes and beautiful architecture. I've never really been to the south. Isn't that strange! But I love the homes from afar.
