I Brought Back Some Inspiration From My Vacation


Do you find yourself all inspired, and motivated after you have been on vacation?

Of course that is after you have rested up from said vacation!!

We recently had the pleasure of spending 10 days in South Carolina.

There was inspiration all around us. I thought I would share a few of the things that inspired me along the way.

Today I will be sharing one of the things that inspired me.

Charleston South Carolina is known for all their beautiful Historic homes so I felt like a dog in a forest to say the least.

One of the elements that I was inspired by and want to add to my own home were the wonderful Gas light lanterns on the porches, or a lamp post leading up to a walkway.

I have no idea if we can put them on our homes in California or not. I have had these in the back of my mind for years, but truly never even thought my hubby would consider the idea.

After taking a carriage drive, walks, and car rides up and down the streets of Charleston, it peeked his interest as well.

He told me to see how much it would cost run them!

Say WHAT???!!

Until I do the sourcing and the investigating I will keep them on my, “DREAM LIST!”

I especially love the lanterns that stand above a fence, or the one’s that hang from the porch ceiling.

Not sure if I will ever have a gas lantern, but I sure as heck am going to check into getting one. I will let you know what I find out.
