Thursday, November 6

Went on a road trip ..............................

Found an antique store and just had to have this piece of china. Sorry it 's blurry.
I am just a sucker when it comes to a plate or cup and saucer .
Sorry about the extra pics . I always take several and try to pick out the better one to show ya'll. I am really tired and shouldn't be trying to do this post. The pics are all so out of order! Sorry , I will do better next time.



In case you can't tell, my hunny bunny likes to ride ; he should have been a truck driver.I loaded all these pics wrong,but I guess it doesn't really matter.
This is a bakery where we ate a dessert. It was really good , I had a carrot cake muffin with cream cheese icing and walnuts on top. Hunny bunny had a big apple turnover.
This is a cute litttle restaurant where we ate lunch . It was so cute inside. It was an old house. And the name of the restaurant was " Nut N Fancy"
This is an old abandoned church on the edge of the Hiwassee River. This pic had very little editing . It was a beautiful day !
We saw these two beauties out enjoying the day on horseback .
Don't you just love this old log house
And look at this tree, the sun was shining on it and it almost would put your eyes out it was so bright.
The colors are so vivid this year . I don't think I have ever seen them so beautiful before .

I can see you had a great day. The autumn colors are magnificent. The china is beautiful; I can see why you had to have it.

Hi Theresa!
You may have been tired but the post looks just fine to me! And those dishes are incredible!! So lovely. Your car trip was so nice with all the colorful landscape. I love old log cabins too, so much history.
Thanks for giving us a laugh with the Maxine cartoons! I just love her! She says it like it is doesn't she?
Hugs, Sherry

I am always tempted by china I see, too ~ that's how I acquired 4 LARGE sets of antique China!!! Can't have anymore!!

Tom and I love to get away and just drive ~ going back to the town we were in last weekend ~ we're buying a table we saw there and just couldn't get out of our heads!!!

Hi Theresa, what a beautiful drive. I love all the colors!! I love buying cups, saucers and plates too.

Theresa, your post is wonderful. who cares about order, editing or anything. It is a job to post anything and I love it all. You have an eye for photo ops. The church is kind of sad with no one to care about it. The place you had lunch is so cute. I love the two beauties in the park. You captured such fun things to share. Your dishes are just my style. I love that you and your Hunny bunny had a fun day together. Your fall photos are beautiful. I agree it is a great fall this year. Thank you for sharing your day.

Love...Jeanne

Marianne said...

Hello Theresa,
I saw you linked my blog. I will return the favour. I love the china, what brand is it? It looks a lot like the vase from Bavaria I bought at a thriftshop last week. I gave it to my mom.
Have a nice Sunday.
Bye,
Marianne.

Oh Theresa! Why didn't you swing by and pick me up?? What a neat drive! 'course, you could have left me at the old log house, abandoned church or the "nut 'n Fancy"...could have made myself at home quite easily!And stayed there!
Now to catch up on more of your wonderful life!
