Ladies and Gentlemen, IMAGINE the era of the Riverboats. OneFineDayPhotos-7 copy0202Proud Captains sailing the Mobile River with cotton and corn stacked high. The sound of their boat horns as children stand on the banks and wave. Ladies in their linen and lace on cool afternoons strolling along the brick streets, with  Spanish Moss draping lazily from the trees.  Stopping occasionally to see a friend on their porch for Tea or Sherry. The sounds of  Gentlemen chatting in the courtyards with children playing hide and seek beneath the Magnolia’s, their satin blooms casting spells as they reach for the sun..  Camellia’s and Azaleas aglow with color and the sky as blue as the sea.

IMAGINE Ladies chatting over lunch of fruits and crumpets near the tall shuttered windows of the stately Townhouses positioned near the waterfront, possibly planning a wedding or party.  IMAGINE the archways adorned with flowers and greenery.  A stairway dramatically winding its way draped with lace and bows of silk.  Rococo Marble fireplaces and beautifully appointed period furniture and lighting to enhance the beauty of the era. IMAGINE the beauty of imported linens, silks, satins and lace that adorns the servers and tables.  Silver services brilliantly polished in the Dining Room with  magnificent Crystal Chandeliers to light the affair. The violins and harps fill the home withOneFineDayPhotos-302 soothing music as a band fills the court yard for dancing........This is a period many wish to experience in our fast paced lives of today.  IMAGINE
