Paducah Kentucky, Mt Vernon Il then home

Now next to my last stop was Paducah Kentucky. I shopped downtown most of the day and found some great antique shops, some was shopped out meaning every thing good was gone. I went to shops I remembered from my last trip down there and some was gone. I was walking on Broadway and went by this window display !!!!!!!!I thought WOW Prom attire? or what? Can you believe I pulled my camera out for this and didn't get it out only for one shop.
I guess first I should show the Welcome sign

                                                       Get your sun glasses on ladies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wasn't those wild?

The shop I went in and remembered to get a picture was Fleur de lis owned by Judy Bray on Kentucky Ave she said I could put her picture on . I bought a large rhinestone button from her $5.oo and then this little sweet girl she was a fire place screen but her bottom stand wasn't all there, I will just stand her up against the wall.

She has a really large interesting  selection of rhinestone and costume jewelry which I love.

After I unwrap all my great purchases I will post them . I brought my trips purchases in and just dropped them all over the living room and some in the kitchen. I have my shells in the sink soaking, they smell like rotten muscles. I stopped in St Louis at Home Goods store to purchase one of those tall glass containers to put my black shells in.  I will show them after I get them all fixed up.

                      I stopped at an antique mall in Belleville Ill and found some good things for my altered art jewelry and cards so I am anxious to create something.

OMGosh While I walk walking down Broadway In Paducah I was hungry of course and heard this LOUD band and I wandered in this restaurant bar place named Mother Duncan's.  I ordered a hamburger which  is a special there. They have an open brick charcoal grille in the dining room. There was lots of people having the burger. The sweet tea was really refreshing to me.

Well I just didn't wander in this establishment not knowing what I was in for. I know the owner of Mother Duncan's and her sister here In Missouri is a dear friend of mine(Jo). I set at the bar up front and watched Missouri & Oklahoma play football ate my hamburger and drank my sweet  tea and watched all the people. If you ever go to Paducah please stop and tell Pat(Mother Duncan)  Janice her friend In Missouri sent you there.

I had to see all my mail and this box from Kristin at Faded Prairie was here. I won a contest she had naming her prairie cow . Ollie is her name now and because of that she sent me this box of goodies. I am going to leave her blog address and go visit her and check out Ollie.

she has an etsy site also

             I wrote mt name in the sand on the beach in Florida.
         My stop before St Louis Mo was Mt Vernon Il to visit a friend of mine from grade school . We hadn't seen each other since our freshman year in high school well she has the sweetest granddaughter name Felicia , I fell in love with this young  girl . Felicia if you are reading this, you are my favorite. This is a code

 We are going to plan a girls week end and get more of our old girl friends together.
