The Spirit of Savannah

Partly because I want to share the photos (and, consequently, my Photoshop skillzzzz) from Savannah and partly because I have a million random comments from this week, none of which I wrote down...please enjoy the tour through Savannah as it is decorated for Christmas. Merry Christmas Eve Eve...

a bar on a corner...somewhere....I'm assuming on Lincoln

descending to the river
river street
observing the container ships as they chug by

from china, with love

looks like you've run aground, repunzerella....

when a woody mates with a sailboat

well, that's just mast-ive...

in city market, the carriage horses come to rehydrate

and the nutcrackers stand guard outside the candy shop...

wreaths encircle the street lamps, finished with rosy red and perfectly folded bows

while more bows tack a wreath of fir garland around wright square gates

no inflatable Santa globe or rotating and lit deer here

beautifully framed photos spring eternal at forsyth park

spit of goose into the wraps of red

it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

and that makes us all pretty jolly

the potted poinsettias of the hamilton-turner house

the random wisps of red on everything from lamp posts 

to sidewalk shop decor...

and the unexpected delight of a carousel pony straddling an apartment balcony

but always, always the jewel-tone glow of church

and the whipping stripes of state. 


  1. Awwww, I love these photographs so much. Savannah is one of my favorite cities ever... I imagine it must be so magical this time of year. And I love that random carousel pony--so cute :)

    Wishing you and the hubs a very merry Christmas! Hope you are taking it easy this year and enjoying each other's company. XOXO

  2. Have a very Merry Christmas! xoxo

  3. Can I just say how glad I am to see Neal's face in your posts? Yes, I've never actually met him, just makes me tear up that you get to share Christmas together. I love when holidays are happy :)

  4. This looks so festive and like so much fun!!! I'm so happy you are together celebrating the holidays!!! oxox

  5. Oooo, I love this. It makes me miss Savannah and *really* miss that candy shop. I can smell it just sitting here. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend! Merry Christmas, Ally! :)

  6. I really enjoyed your photo tour. What a beautiful city, and as you note, such tasteful Christmas decorations. Have a great Christmas.
