Since I have only (4) brothers, my cousin Claire is all the more precious to me. Today is her birthday, so I thought I'd post images that will mean a lot to her... really, only she will actually "get" them, but they are kind of cool, so I hope you like them too. These harken back to our childhood frolicking on the Gulf Coast and in Savannah.
Happy Birthday Claire!

adorable home in Savannah
Amie and Bompoon, so very long ago, on
Coffee Bluff in Savannah

room of the house in Apalach
chandelier in the dining room of
the house in Apalach... we used to watch
as the bugs got trapped in the points of
the glass and the housekeeper had to
empty them out every week!
the fort named for our grandfather in Apalach
a peek inside the fort shows this old,
crazed mirror where girls used to check
their appearance before going into the
WWII era dances
I know Claire would love a bed like this!
and living by the sea, she would adore a
table made from seashells
Claire loves blue and white
Claire, you know who this is, you and I will end up striding
by the sea just like her when we are 93 too!
Love you lots on this
very special birthday
