Visiting "up Nawth"

This week I am "up Nawth" (which to us is Atlanta and beyond) babysitting my GrandDogters.

It is joy for me to do it for more than one reason...my GrandDogters love me, are always happy to see me and follow me around giving and getting lovies. My beautiful daughter in law (isn't she just too too gorgeous? a true Southern Belle) and my son are on a trip to the Keys ... I can't refuse them anything :) and then there is the shopping. So many places to shop, so much to see. I found three new thrift shops and in one I found some Royal Worcester and some Haviland china tea cups. The Royal Worcester are the Asprey Pink pattern...oh my!
I hope to have some pictures to share with you on Friday.
My wish for you: A wonderful week filled with bargains.

Oh My! She is gorgeous and what a beautiful dress. Yes...tiaras I say. Just another project that right now is on the back burners but soon to be on the front ones I hope. I read on the forums at MMP about your putting furniture together. LOL...that was so funny but I am with you on that. We just put some drawers together for my studio. Never again! Have fun Francie with the doggies. What a good Mom you are.

Oh yes, she is lovely, and how very Gone with the wind, to be posing so gracefully on the stairs, in flowing gown!

Hi Francie,

Your DIL is so lovely standing on the stairs! She looks like the epitome of a Southern lady!!

Have fun on your shopping expedition and watch out for those Nawtherners that live up above Atlanta!! LOL

P.S. I like your musical selections ~ Willie singing GA on my Mind is one of my favorites! Do you believe it? :)

Francie, she's lovely!!! Like a debutante. And as delicate as that Haviland china. I'm so glad you're having fun, fun, fun.
