The Holy City Salute


Hello Everyone,

My Favorite Things is sponsoring a beautiful color challenge this week! You can get all the details and play along right here:


When I saw this quartet of pastel, sea-breezy colors, I immediately thought of one of my very favorite American cities, Charleston, SC, nicknamed The Holy City. So, I created a pretty seaside CAS scene with this soft palette. I recently returned from a trip to Charleston, so it must be on my mind!

Thanks for joining me today!

Live your life in color!

      Charleston is an AMAZING city for visitors! It was named in honor of King Charles II of England, and South Carolina was the only one of the original 13 colonies to tolerate Protestant religion.Today, the prominence of huge, beautiful churches on a low-rise cityscape, especially St. Michael’s on Broad Street in the center of town, probably gave it its nickname, The Holy City. Charleston is one of the most well-preserved architectural cities in America, and has this amazing mix of styles, colonial, Caribbean influence, French, Bahamian, Victorian, just gorgeous- rows and rows of pastel mansions! You can take horse and carriage tours through the streets, and learn of its rich history from the late 1600’s! For America, that’s old! One of the best foodie cities in the world too! It even has America’s only tea plantation, and spectacular sandy beaches too!
