The second winner will get what I have put together below, a bunny S & P shaker, a pair of black and silver mercury votive candle holders, a cute little basket, a box of Whittard of Chelsea green tea and some sweet animal figurines. Since this is only a consolation price, it is not as good as the first 2. :-(
I have a new favorite and I am so excited! Laurie at http://bargainhuntingwithlaurie.blogspot.com/ is hosting "A Few of My Favorite Things" every Saturday. This is a chance to showcase your favorites and share it with us so c'mon and join us! Be sure you check out her blog and see her favorites and those of her participants.
In the first picture of the mosaic below, you will see that the lamp post was not installed yet. Do you see John just relaxing out there? That's his favorite chaise to lounge and read.
We placed the third one with a single lamp by the bathroom entry door. Do you see it? You know, we got this particular one only for $9.99. It was on clearance and it matches the other 2 perfectly, same style and all. Unfortunately they only had one left. The other 2 were more expensive.
We did not go far this time. I have heard people say that the best fried chicken can be found in an old country store in Lorman, which is only about 1/2 hr. drive away from here. Then someone told me that it was featured on the Food Network. Hey! That really roused my curiosity. I definitely need to try this fried chicken!
So, one day, my friend and I went and sure enough, their fried chicken was scrumptious! The dessert was good too and as we left, a tour bus pulled in carrying a bus load of people to try the fried chicken too. It's a good thing we came in a little sooner, lol. My daughter who is visiting me with her 2 babies at the end of this month cannot wait for me to take her there.
We drove to Alcorn University next to see the original iron steps of the mansion which were donated there and are being used in the chapel.
Beautiful steps! Look at all that ironwork!
I hope you enjoyed this tour right in our own state.
Thank you all for joining me and thanks, Laurie for hosting and allowing me to show some of my favorite things.
