Have you ever discovered something on a trip and then returned home to realize that it was only the tip of the iceberg? In my walks around the city of Charleston, I noticed this beautiful iron gate with a gilded harp. What an entrance. The intricate ironwork of Christopher Werner is what made me stop and take notice, and upon reading about Hibernian Hall from home, I wish I could have known to go inside. Flamboyant ballroom? Double Stairhall?
How I could I not know about Charleston's historic ironwork? If I would have known, I would have done some research before I arrived. I really enjoyed my time there - I was able to wander the city for the better part of a week a few years ago when my husband was in town for work.
I explored the beautiful shops on King Street, wandered an indie craft show and had my first bubble tea with made with tapioca pearls. It was a lovely city to explore and I wanted to see more. I would love to tour the gardens of Charleston one day. Or be able to walk the streets when it is decorated for Christmas! Have you ever been to Charleston?
