The third day of our Tybee Sleepover bloggers’ trip was spent exploring the gorgeous city of Savannah, Georgia. You need two days here to really experience it.
You might have seen on the news, there was a terrible fire in a rubber warehouse while we were there. I have never seen smoke like that.
One of our favorite stores was The Paris Market located in this lovely old building.
Their displays were chock full of ideas on how to create vignettes in your home.
The little coffee shop located on the first floor tugged at my heart strings.
I would SO have indulged, but our ultimate destination was right across the street.
Yup, the one and only Mrs. Paula Deen.
Taking up a full city block on Congress St, The Lady and Sons includes the restaurant, a retail store and a private dining room where we ate.
Here is a shot of the whole lot of us with the staff and management from the restaurant.
The cutey pie in the middle with the long hair and cable knit sweater was our host and speaker, Claudia Deen, new wife of Bobby- one of The Sons.
Interestingly, while we gorged ourselves on this (and oh, yes! it was divine),
Claudia was speaking to us about living a healthy lifestyle and eating clean foods. That was a bit awkward. We kept putting our forks down…. for a few seconds. LOL
Miss Elaine upstaged them all though.
SHE kept bringing out the desserts.
after the other
after the other.
“Sugah, don’t you wanna try this banana puddin? It’s mighty good.”
Sure nuff. It was.
Miss Elaine had the sweetest spirit and a smile that made you want to be her new BFF. Thank you for making us feel so welcome!
This week? Lettuce. Just plain lettuce.
Good thing we walked…. a lot!
If you are an artist/designer you can’t leave Savannah without checking out SCAD – Savannah College of Art and Design.
Her buildings are spread all over the city.. literally.
This is the admissions office and it gives you a real taste of what awaits behind the doors.
Everything was creative. The stair rails were lime green. All of the furnishings were student designs and next door was the SCAD retail store where you can pick up a treasure or two designed by students and alums. Well worth the visit.
We also loved Habersham Antiques.
My favorite thing about the city?
Two of the stops that we so regret missing were the Back In The Day Bakery and another amazing antique store but you can read all about that on any number of other posts.
In the next few days I will introduce you to some of my new friends and their blogs. Today, meet:
