Today marks 24 years since Mr. Ramblings and I exchanged "I do's," but our celebrating began a few days earlier, on Friday. Forget romantic fancy, gourmet meals by candlelight! Nothing says love in the south, like sharing good, southern comfort food on a cold day with your honey! Our favorite place to do just that is in Mullins, SC, at Webster Manor Bed and Breakfast.
The pictures were taken with my cell, and don't capture the beauty and charm of this place as it should. For Mr. Ramblings and I, visiting Webster's is like taking a trip back to our grandparent's home. The delicious, hardy food reminiscent of the best meals we've had. ...traveling back in time, capturing all the warm feelings of nostalgia.
The downstairs of the old quaint southern home is set for the restaurant. At Christmas, it is transformed with grand, lush festive decorations. I would have loved to taken more pictures, but didn't want to disturb the other guests.
After lunch while traveling down the main strip of Mullins, we discovered a new vintage store had opened... The Barn.
The Barn offers unique repurposed decor, and for really great prices!
I was tempted to bring this pretty rustic wood bed home for my son! At $499, seemed like a deal.
So many one-of-a-kind, custom made pieces!
Reclaimed barn wood for sale for DIY projects.
Mr. Ramblings was fascinated by these wood chases for the lake house.
The Barn offered a large selection of new vintage, farm looking linens for beds and windows. I found something in this area... but more on that in a later post!
If you travel close to Mullins, be sure to schedule it for around lunchtime at Webster's. For such a small town, there are several amazing restaurants in the area. Afterwards, stop in and do a little shopping at The Barn. We spoke with the shop owner for awhile, but didn't get his name... what a shame. He was a friendly guy, as was his wife who just opened The Brew, a sweet coffee shop right across the road. I unfortunately was too full from lunch to try any of her coffees or pastries, but the aroma was heavenly! As they tell it, they were just driving through the town, noticed an empty building for sale, and the rest is history. They have already invested a lot of their heart and time into revitalizing a part of Mullins, which I think it wonderful!
On another note...
The Holiday Home Tour Blog gets underway today! Five days of festive homes, decked out for Christmas! I'll be back on Thursday with a few glimpses of mine! See y'all then! :)
