Welcome to Charleston!

By March 27, 2019Diary


A few weeks back John and I loaded the pugs into the car (Jasper went to camp, a favorite activity of his) and drove down to Charleston, South Carolina with Elizabeth, the Madcap Cottage Chief of Staff. The purpose? I was writing a story about the just-opened, luxe Hotel Bennett for Celebrated Living, American Airlines’ first-class magazine, and we were photographing the Madcap Cottage specialty linens grouping, the Southern Charm Collection, for BBJ Linen at the historic Lowndes Grove Plantation.

Weenie and Cecil pile into the backseat of the Subaru atop their custom dog bed and next to the cooler full of organic dog food. Next stop, Charleston!

John and I lapped up the luxurious–and dog friendly!– Hotel Bennett smack in the heart of Charleston upon Marion Square.

John, Elizabeth, and I dine at amazing Little Jack’s Tavern, our most favorite Charleston eatery. We love that it’s not just Low Country cooking at Little Jack’s. And, oh!, their crudité starter.

Amy Petunia, the old lady in the pug posse, navigates the patterned rugs in the hallways at the Hotel Bennett for a post-prandial walk.

John and I created the Southern Charm Collection by Madcap Cottage with the incredible team at BBJ Linen, including Allison East. Here, the second-floor terrace at the Lowndes Grove Plantation, the scene of the photo shoot.
