Savannah Georgia again

I went on a trip to Savannah Georgia and did a little antique shopping at some new shops I found in Savannah Georgia. This first picture was taken at The Paris Market  and this globe de mariee was sitting on a table soon as you got downstairs which I love the lower level as much as the top level of the store.

The reason it caught my eye was I had just seen one or 5 like this at Richard's Manion last weekend and knew what it was . $1200.00 !!!!!!!!!!
It is still in the store LOl couldn't get it in my suitcase LOL

These were the chandeliers just as you walk in the store. Downstairs they have chandelier made with oyster shells

They have the best decorating and art books at that store I wanted about 6 of them talk about coffee table books some of them would fit on the kitchen table LOL very large Oh and a beautiful white feather duster I wanted on about a 30 inch wooden handle it was beautiful I would put it in a vase and use for decor

at the 37th & Abercorn antique shop these lovely book ends caught my eye so art nouveau. And UPS is bringing me a box of things I purchased (OMG) again can't wait to get my items home . Vanna you will love them ?

This was  a shot walking down Broughton street where the S C A D theatre is

Then I went to the Back In The Day Bakery and got my picture with the lovely Chery Day she has a new cookbook coming out in March 2012, look for her on the Today show and Good morning America after that and of course I am sure she will be back on the Paula Deen cooking show also
she can really bake a delicious cup cake and her cinnamon rolls were to die for . Her bakery is so cute or vintage decorated love it . I met Mr Griff her sweet husband also ( hold in your stomach Janice ) The Paula Deen tour bus stops there now she has been on Paula Deen's show several times

I took the Paula Deen tour again this year and got to go in the Bethesda  Chapel where Paula Deen  and Michael Grover  got married  love it. It's out where the boys town is she supports
       It's a very small chapel when you have the wedding party Paula
Deen  would have had with all their friend and family

I took a cookbook with me that I bought from her first restaurant on Congress street back in 1998 she autographed it for me back then. she was in the kitchen cooking and came out to give me an autograph. Her first restaurnat seated 20 people. I thought if I just happened to run into her again I would ask for a updated autograph( didn't run into her she is off on a book signing tour)
 The we went out to Willington Island to Uncle Bubba's ( Paula's brother's restaurant  for you people who don't know who he is)
He was there and was  signing autograph's and letting us get our picture made with him ( so now does that mean he isn't as popular as Paula?)

                                         To Janice

Omg this is the Jim Williams House ( Johnny Mercer House previously) It was the house filmed in the move Midnight In The Garden of Good & Evil filmed in Savannah 1995? about. I did a tour of it last year while I was visiting the city

     Me standing out front acting I guess funny? I was saying ohhhhhhhhhhhhh or youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu. I don't care to show awful pictures of me now do I?                                           

This was a restaurant we had lunch at . Cheryl said go here and I loved it look at all the decor here SoHo


see if you can picture a half large wall with this Muriel I couldn't get it all in my picture
                                              a small chandelier about 4 ft across    
     Our lunch was delicious . we did a lot of shopping in the little boutiques around this area.  I really liked Gacho.We went in a bed & breakfast I think I will stay in next time I visit I have the brochure somewhere I haven't unpacked yet. when I find it might add more to this comment
inside SoHo restaurant

I found a wonderful Ballastone Inn at 13 e Oglethorpe and want to stay there next trip it's right at all the very nice shopping

OK hold onto your socks !!!!! I met this person who was staying in the same hotel as me and she was one of the characters in the Movie Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil  born Benjamin Edward Knox,  now the famous and beautiful Lady Chablis !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lady Chablis !!!!!!!!!!! & Me (another terrible picture of me while I was having fun) can you get over the shock of a bad picture ?

"The Doll " joking with me and my picture companion is not a good photographer LOL. I don't mean to offend anyone however I don't follow the drag queen scene but I think she is so interesting and was beautiful in the movie and i even have and read her book . I am holding her autograph

an outrageously charming drag Queen is what her book says . She is very tall and slim and I look like a fat Missouri grandma I really don't like posting my picture but it goes with this story  just like when I went to visit Richard

     I am wearing all black my next picture , black turtle neck and long black dress over it LOL
I had another great trip to Savannah Georgia. I didn't get to meet up with Ginger & Bob ( Savannah Granny ) because of a death of a very close friend, maybe next time Ginger
I hope I din't bore you to death with my vacation pictures I had a ball as usuall when I go to Savannah Georgia. My next trip will be Portland Oregon

  1. Savannah is great -- we went there last fall. Ate at Elizabeth's on 37th for dinner -- man was that ever good! And did a tea room lunch at the SCAD tea room. Loved the trolley and we toured a house or two -- fun, fun fun!

    Oh, and antiquing although I don't remember going into those shops you found -- perhaps another trip back?

  2. I do love the " globe de mariée"!

  3. Ms. J. I am so sad you did not get to have lunch with Paula. I want to go and eat in her restraunt so bad. Did you have fried chicken? You and the Drag Queen, the best! i don't know why you did not buy the wedding dome, what's $1200? Chicken feed. I am so jealous you get to go and do, maybe some day my time will come. I am coming to Columbia to Apple Wagon Sunday morning, be there at 9 and have to leave by 10, that's my life. Sissy Dog sends kisses. Love and best Paula dean Dishes, Richard from My Old Historic House.

  4. Janice I loved the trip to Savannah with you! First off that dome is gorgy. but sheesh that's steep! I can find ya a lot better girlfriend *winks* And ooohhhh ahhhhhh I LOVE those bookends!! I'd snap those up in a red hot minute if I could! That bakery looks like my kind of place. So retro warm and inviting.
    I also LOVED the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (I own it and just drool every time I watch it) I can't believe you got to meet Lady Chablis!! I'm so jealous!
    BTW Lookin' stylin' with that speedy Ms Janice *winks* Is it a 30 or 35? The speedy is my go to bag for everything. I've had my 30 since 1986 and it's still going strong!
    Anyhoo I can't wait till you come my way! We gonna have some shopping fun my friend! Vanna

  5. Oh wow, looks like so much fun and so much to see. All of fabulous antiques and the wonderful homes. I would love to visit someday. Thanks for sharing on TTT. Hugs, Marty

  6. Loved all the photos. I hope to get to Atlanta some day. Your trip looks like fun.

  7. I live a couple of hours away from Savannah and it is one of my most favorite places in the world. The beautiful architecture, the yummy food and some great shopping. Looks like you had a fantastic trip!

  8. Loved the tour of Savannah, it is a beautiful city, I hope to return one day. I haven't heard of Chery Day, but I will certainly look for her cookbook.

  9. We went to Savannah about 12 years ago, and I totally fell in love! I think you're adorable, and "do Missouri proud"!! thanks for taking us along for the tour. I'd love to be there this time of year! xoxo

  10. You got me at the CINNAMON ROLLS... Looks like a fun Bakery!*!*! and Thanks sooooo much for all your nice comments on my blog, Janice!!!

  11. I live just a few hours from Savannah. I made a trip there this summer with some girlfriends. We plan to go back in early December when the historic homes are decorated for Christmas. I agree, that Paris Market is worth the trip. And I haven't eaten at Bubba's, but it's on my list of things to do.

  12. I just love Savannah! Only went the once but I want to go back and spend at least a week or two.
    Just the homes and the food alone makes for a worthwhile trip. Glad you had a great time!

  13. I love Savannah! Looks like you had a great trip.Thanks for sharing,JoAnn

  14. Wow, that was a great trip, I guess. That bookstore looks so cool! Unfortunately it's 'a bit' too far for me to go there, hehe.

  15. That is so cool that you got to meet the Lady Chablis!!! She was really good in the movie, and I figured she was a tall drink of water. We Missouri gals can give her a run for her money, though! :-) Glad you had a good time!

  16. I'm so jealous you got to meet the Lady Chablis! I have been to Savannah once, It's a lovely Southern city.
