Savannah…what a wonderful place to meet up with friends. We have been having a wonderful time. Lots of walking, touring historic homes, enjoying museums, shopping AND buying.
One of my favorite stops is always the SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) Store. All merchandise is created by SCAD students. Really dug the jewelry that was made using a 3-D printer.
And then I spied the polished rocks with the lace stencils. These beauties have given me some ideas for a tablescape in our outdoor dining area.
We also hit the shops along Broughton Street. One of the stops was a store with a France-inspired theme. Found a project I would like to take a stab at. I mean, who doesn’t like a a jeweled initial to display?
We have indulged in sumptuous food at Leoci’s (Italian, naturally; and amazing brick oven pizza), The Olde Pink House (fried green tomatoes and grits, anyone?), The Cafe (in the heart of City Market), Blowin’ Smoke (pecan wood smoked pulled pork enchilada; yup, that works), Goose Feathers (unique sandwiches and locally roasted coffee), Gryphon Tea Room (run by SCAD and featuring delicious tea goodies; could not resist the scones with clotted cream and jam), and of course Leopold’s Ice Cream where the owner personally thanked us for coming in – but then again we were eating ice cream for breakfast and he may have just been admiring our style.
All of this fun lead right into the start of Savannah’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.
The fountain stays green for the next five days as the city fills with revellers taking part in the various almost round-the-clock festivities. Party on!
