Warm Greetings lovely friends! Im a wee bit late catching up on my blog. It’s been a WHIRLWIND of a week!!! My 16 year old dog Alli has been very very sick.
She has seizures every so often,and this past weekend the came back agressivly. It’s so heartbreaking!!! We’ve been to the vet, and she is being treated with medication. There are times she cant quite make it outside to use the bathroom or can barely get up for that reason because her back legs give out. The good news is my vet doesn’t think she is in pain or is suffering, AND she still has her appetitie and drinks plenty of water. She also stares at me with those big brown eyes and acts happy to see me everytime I walk thru the door. Im making sure her last little bit of time is full of quality and LOTS & LOTS of LOVE & TLC!!!
Last weekend my hubby and I spent a FUN adult weekend in Savannah, GA. My parents and my Uncle and his wife joined us as well. We own property outside of Savannah and if you have NEVER been. You are missing out! It truly is the OLD SOUTH!!! Im going to treat you to a few pics of large live oak trees and southern style homes ALONG with my FAV Savannah shops!!!
I SWEAR pics dont do this home justice! It reminds me of a home you would see on the Mississippi river.
This picture of my silly hubby and I at dinner after he had a great day of golf. He was a happy camper!
While the boys golfed all day, us ladies went shopping in downtown Savannah. My FAV place to shop is Vintage General. Liz is the shop owner and I met her several years ago at her first location. Her shop has continually grown over the years and she has moved three times. Her current location is FABULOUS! The shop is even BIGGER and FULL of more GOODIES! I was like a kid in the candy shop!!!!! She carries everything! You must check out her online store. Here is a little lookie at the inside. Come on! I’ll give ya a tour!
Display stand of yummy Millinery.
The most beautiful ribbons!
Liz (shop owner) and I posing with my yummy fun purchases. Everytime I visit Savannah I MUST pay a visit to Vintage General.
Right down the street is ANOTHER super fabulous shop in which Im sure many of you have heard of. The Paris Market.
They carry the most beautiful and eclectic decor from big to small.
Cozy little spot.
This is a photo of the fountain taken at beautiful Forsyth Park.
Of course I did not come home empty handed. I purchased a few fun things from Vintage General. I fell HEAD OVER HEELS in love with this vintage Nestle Frutips cannister. The sherbet colors are so fun!
I found a great spot for it in my kitchen.
Of course I must bring my babies a gift home. I found this also at Vintage General, and just the candy theme alone made me want to squeal!!! My Mom wondered if I was really and truly buying it for Grant, or really for myself. hee! hee!
Here are the playing cards. SWEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!!
Lookie at this OOOOH so YUMMY book I couldn’t resist buying! " Hello, Im a C-H-O-C-O-H-L-A-T-E addict! Nice to meet you!"
Read the fine print! THAT’S ME! :))))
Oh gosh! I wish you could see the reciepes and mouth drooling delish dessert pics inside. Im NOT a baker whatsoever, but I just had to have this book!
Lastly, I want to share a few pics of my BEAUTIFUL outdoor roses. I wish you could smell them. They are sooooo incredibly fragrant.
I hope ALL you Mommies have a WONDERFUL, RELAXING, and SUPER LOVING weekend! I’ll post again on Sunday to send well wishes, share some sweet Mothers Day pics, as well as pics of a custom vintage boy shadowbox that I just completed.
