Live Like a Local: Haviland Stillwell in Concert!

     ‘Tis the season for another FUN-raiser to benefit the Historic Post Theater here on Tybee! Make plans now to attend see Haviland Stillwell perform live in concert at “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”.

     Haviland Stillwell is a hometown girl, now working in New York and LA. She has appeared in films, on Broadway, and is currently shooting a guest starring role on CSI:NY. Miss Stillwell will bring her musical talents home to Savannah for this concert to help raise money to restore the historic Tybee Post Theater. Between sets, you will have the chance to meet Haviland and even have your picture taken with the rising star!
     This fabulous event is hosted by Attorney and Mrs. Howard Spiva and is being held in their beautiful Paradise Island home at 12401 Apache Avenue in Savannah. The concert begins at 7:45 pm with Haviland Stillwell performing live and, after a break, again at 9pm. This luxurious home is the perfect back drop to mingle with fellow theater supporters, meet the guest star, and enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
     There is a $75 donation per person for this event and a limited number of tickets will be sold, so get yours soon! Visit the Facebook Event Page to learn all of the easy ways to get your tickets! You can also call 912-786-7009 for information, or purchase E-tickets here to print and bring along with you the night of the event. There will be plenty of parking along Apache Avenue, with constant free shuttles for attendees to and from the door of the home.
     Don’t miss this fabulous holiday event! What better time of year to enjoy a concert for a great cause? Hope to see you there!

Yellow Labs and Mermaids- two of my favorite things!

I love being here in Key West. Even thought Max is not feeling well, Danny is his usual crazy self. He’s my walking buddy and we’re walking all over our neighborhood here in Old Town. Every where I look is another amazing cottage restoration.  Heaven for someone like me who loves old houses.

But there is another element to Key West which I love.  Craziness.  Pure and right there in your face people who just don’t care how things look to the rest of the world. I’ve heard this place called the “Island of misfit toys” over and over.

Today’s walk took the cup cake.  I was walking and saw a mermaid sticking out from a roof top.  Cool! A mermaid sighting!  Then I looked again.  Not one but TWO YELLOW LABS sitting on the roof! A mermaid and yellow labs – life doesn’t get any better!

But here’s the crazier thing. The are literally right on the edge of the house. And they are walking around- looking at people ( who like me are taking pictures of this sight!)  Then they get bored of the people and just lay back down and take another nap. True labs!  Isn’t this incredible???
