The Last of 'Bama

Alabama

- 40s dress
- UO canvas flats
- Target socks
- 70s crochet bag

Here are the last photos that I took on my trip to 'Bama. It seems like so long ago that I was there! I remember being awfully hot and sweaty when I was trying to take these photos. And also constantly being attacked by bugs and briars.

Speaking of bugs and briars... our backyard has been an unruly mess of weeds and a haven for wayward squirrels ever since we moved in late last summer. We've been dreaming of have a nice backyard patio ever since. This week it's becoming a reality! The landscapers showed up early this morning (thank goodness it's not quite so hot today) and by the end of the week we should be eating dinner al fresco on our new brick patio. I already saw that my garden box has been installed so next summer we'll have fresh peppers and tomatoes right out of our own backyard! That is, if I'm actually able to grow any.

Forgive my rambling... I'm just quite excited about the new backyard. So, did anyone catch the Mad Men premier last night? I won't give anything away for those of you who haven't yet seen it, but we really enjoyed it! I love that you can see the style advancing a bit. A new hairdo for Peggy, a new dress for Joan, a fresh color scheme in the office. The details of that show have always astounded me. I can't wait to see where this season goes.

the pattern of this dress is so great. & you have this casual gracefulness in your pictures,i love looking at them.

i can definitely relate to the bugs and briars. my legs look polka dotted from all the ravenous bugs! they just have a field day when i go outside. and congratulations on your patio! sounds beautiful.
