Lots of Hodgepodge

Hodgepodge is a word used to describe a confused or disorderly mass or collection of things;

Hodgepodge is the best word to describe this post. I have been super busy and haven't posted in awhile... This post was actually dated March 16 it has a little bit of everything ..
First up is the Spring Festival a couple of weekends ago.


There was a lady from South Carolina with these Edgeworthia Chrysantha ( Paper Bush ) I had never seen them in bloom they looked pretty cool.



There wasn't a lot of plants the cold this past winter really hurt a lot of things around here but there was lots of other great stuff. Home made jellies, jams, local honey, handmade jewelry and



my favorite new birdhouse. The tiles were made in the early 1900's in a little town that I haven't been to in many years Ludowici, Georgia. I love the Dixie TM ..



The saddest sign ever !!! Hoping they will be open this Saturday when I go out for the plant sale, sure would like a strawberries and cream cake for Easter ....



and another sad moment, we watched a very, very happy 20 something year old young man drive off  in our baby .. We have had her for many years but haven't been driving her much so we felt it was time to let her go. I have a feeling she is zipping all around town and enjoying herself ..



And here's a few goodies from weekends ago that I forgot to show off... Beth and I did not get to do the Peaches to Beaches Hwy 341 yards sales but we did take off early Saturday morning to a big sale here in town which I personally think everyone from Savannah was at. I have never seen this many people at this sale before it was unreal even the volunteers were surprised. I don't know what the things above are but I love them and think they will make for something interesting in the garden ..



people, people everywhere people ready to find a treasure !



I bought lots of pretty linens, table cloths, pillow shams a little bamboo table and other goodies



this one is really pretty and big



I fell in love with this breakfast tray and can't wait to get it repainted.



Good Morning Atlanta yep instead of heading south to the beaches of the Golden Isles I ended up in Atlanta and it was cold ...





And see Miss Glenda I finally made it to a Trader Joe's. I bought lots of wine to add to the dozen bottles you gave me for Christmas .. lol and lots of other goodies too .. It was a quick trip, wish I would have had more time to have shopped at some of the other stores that we don't have here in Savannah.

OK I'll stop here for today but there is so much more to share like ...

The 75th annual Savannah Tour of Homes & Gardens tour my girlfriends Bobbie, Beth and I did last week and the trip up to Rahn's greenhouses with Miss Lois last Friday and then the fabulous I will never miss another !! Plant sale at the Georgia Southern Botanical Gardens .
I didn't get to stay but a minute and was in a little car with 3 other adults and a baby/ seat or else I would have done some major damage .. I did manage to squeeze in a few gems ... Next year I will be the first one there and have a U haul attached to my truck ..lol

If you would like to see a pretty house from last years tour checkout the Wisteria House .
Have a wonderful day !
hugs ya'll, Cherry
