Southern Folks…

Once again I’ve been so fortunate to get a lot of wonderful shots
of a lot of wonderful Southern people
this weekend. If you’re looking for your photo
please continue to come back since it will take me some
time to get them all up.

I’ve posted many photos of events held at my friends’ Jackie and Lou’s home.
This weekend their home was featured on a tour of Christmas Homes in our town .
We all expected a hand full of people to visit
but were surprised to host around two hundred guests…
I didn’t get to shoot as many photos as I would like to have but
I sure got to visit with a lot of people that
I haven’t seen in a long time.
It was also so nice to talk to so many people who had known my parents.

Stockings were hung in the Library…

  4. Hats are a lost art! What's happened to all the hat designers nowadays anyway? Now there is a name for a hat designer, but I just can't think of it. That lady in the hat is fabulous!! I remember when all the women wore hats and gloves to church. I love that beautiful glassware and the divine table. The drapes in the library almost match your blog border! The house is beautiful, it looks like an antebellum mansion, straight out of Gone With The Wind...now I'm going off to makle a mint julep and fan myself, fiddle-de-de!!

  10. Lovely mosaics of beautiful rooms decorated for Christmas. I have always admired those who open their homes for Home Tours. That's because Home Tours are one of my very favorite things to do at this time of year. I am also grinning because you took such lovely photos of your guests.

  13. Becky, This home is beautiful and how fun for its owners to be included in a home tour. Your pictures are very well-done and your vintage looking mosaic is very pretty. Also love your "lady in a hat." Thanks for visiting tonight and leaving such a nice comment.
