I had a blogger meet up sponsored by Hometalk on Thursday at Southern Accents. I had one blogger come all the way from Texas! Denise and I went to the same high school and college. She and I have been chatting for a few weeks about blogging and she decided to make the trip! It was so great seeing her. For some reason, I didn't take a photo of the group. Lisa and Denise both took pictures, but I haven't seen any of them! I guess I could've asked for one....Leah Turner drove over from Cedar Bluff, Alabama. We all asked where that is and she couldn't tell us! It was our little joke of the day. (wink) She has a house that is over a hundred years old. You can find her on Facebook at The Field House. She found several things she "needed". I think she was going to talk her hubby into coming back with her to get some of her finds. It was so nice to show them the store and all of my favorite spots. Yeah, I kinda said that every time we walked into another room. While we were at the gym, I snapped a couple of pics of the "spire" from Arkansas. This thing has gotten a lot of attention and has potential to become famous! I think it looks like a lady in a dress. It reminds me of Beauty and the Beast. You know, the duster, Babette?
I picked up this piece of trim. It was from one of the houses in Arkansas. I love delicate trim. This piece is only about 6ft tall. I need to find a cool way to use it.
On Sunday, Connor and I ventured downtown to Railroad Park. It's a new park that has had a lot of national recognition. It is a beautiful area. Our local baseball team, the Barons, will be playing in the new Regions Stadium right beside the park. We do not have a very safe downtown in Birmingham. I hope all of these new places will change that. We had so much fun checking out the park. Lots of dogs, kids and people enjoying the sunshine. It felt great to be there. There was a local pop up shop going on that day. Several vendors brought me out. I have been following Digs Design on Instagram and Facebook. They have some cool vintage finds. I talked to the Mom and Daughter owners. They have a great eye and are both so creative. I can't wait to work with them on a few projects soon! I love this yellow basket. Isn't it so fun??
A quick look at all the action that day at the park and a view of a portion of Birmingham, Alabama!
As we were leaving, we stopped to get a treat from the ice cream truck! It was the perfect ending to a very fun afternoon!
