Day out..

My daughter Amanda and I took off to 
Plant City this weekend
to do a little shopping at Southern Hospitality,
and hit a few of the old antique stores..
This little town, is so country ,, it is awesome...

What a blast to the past..We saw so many old things,,
that brought back such wonderful childhood memories
of my parents..and looking at some of the
same things my mom had in her kitchen...


We came across this little stool..
I wanted to get it for Breleigh,
but the vendor wanted a little too much for it,
so I took a picture of it,,and I will make one my self..
But how cute is it..

We ran across this old phone booth,,
and decided to have a little fun..

Heres Amanda using her Cell phone in a phone

Then we had lunch at the cutest little restaurant
called Snellgrove Diner..
it was soooooo county,,,
it came complete with its own little
ole man sitting out front of it on the bench..
Amanda and I both just looked at him and said...

I was listening to these to older gentleman talking to each other...

It went something like this..

Hey Fred, How ya doin?
Oh doin alright I recon.
How about you..
Oh cant complain.

All in their cute little country slang... it was precious..

  Well it was a fun day.. in this cute little country town

How fun for you both! I'm so glad that you had an outing together before your move. I know that'll be a day to carry you for awhile, at least. That's a really cute stool ,too. Can't wait to see your version of it! Take care my Sweet Friend!

I drive past the Southern Hospitality store every day! I've always wanted to go in, but never could find the time to. I pass it on my way to class, so I'm usually quite in a rush. I always heard it was too pricey. Seeing your pictures makes me want to take a peek for sure now! I love old things :) And I love your blog! Have you been to ybor? or tarpon springs?

Many blessings to you!

Looks like a fun day! My sister and niece and I went out for hair cuts today and had some chuckles, too!

There is nothing like a little break from the every day scurry of life, to give you a new appreciation of it!
