A day trip to Savannah ~

Saturday morning all of us girls woke up early, I mean REALLY early (for me :) and headed to Savannah, Georgia for a day trip. Of course I dozed off and it seemed like a quick trip to me!! Sweet Judy drove wonderfully even though my head was bobbing all over the place ~

Savannah was beautiful, just as it always is. Warmish, not the hot, muggy weather that I've experienced in the middle of the summer. thank goodness. Our oldest son Brent graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a film major plus lived there several years afterward so we've visited before when it was very HOT.

We all took a sightseeing trolley ride around the city and you pay for the entire day, get off, visit what you want and wait for the next trolley to hop back on. They are making their rounds usually every fifteen minutes. Cool, huh?

We visited River Street and then had lunch at The Shrimp Factory which was delicious! Then we visited a most wonderful store, @home vintage general....I just LOVE this store! I ended up finding several goodies here and will be sure to share them later.....here are a few photos to give you an idea of what they have to offer....plus the owner has a blog HERE!

Here we all are with our bags of treasures!!! My sweet son David, who still lives in Savannah showed up here to give me a big ol' hug and took photos of the group for us too!

The next wonderful stop was The Paris Market & Brocante ~ another great store to see if you visit to Savannah. Their merchandise is always changing and ALWAYS interesting! They have a blog too, HERE ~

We stopped by Paula Deen's store and looked around too ~

We all had such a great time together....enjoying the city and of course, shopping!!! What an amazing weekend ~ and a wonderful memory! Thank you so much girls ~

Well, it's been two weeks today that Noah broke his leg and he's doing so good!! Tonight he can sleep without his brace on so that will be a great thing! Thank you all so much for your sweet thoughts, prayers and wishes for him ~ you're all such wonderful friends to me.....

Wishing you a great Tuesday sweet friends!
xxoo, Dawn

it looks so pretty there Dawn...the store is wonderful, i can't wait to see what you got!!!

Vee said...

Nothing like a group of women on a shopping trip. Too bad you missed the first part. ;D

Yay for Noah and no brace. That's going to help him sleep so much better and we all know how healing sleep is.

Yup, I'm waiting to see what you gathered, too. If I'd been with you, I would've watched very closely and followed suit.

Well, my friend, I've just added two more blogs to my reading list and two more shops to visit in Savannah!! Mr. S will be thrilled. ;)
I'm so glad you all had such a good time. The plates the girls made are beautiful, you look adorable (even if you were sleepy!) and you captured Savannah perfectly. I love the on-and-off trolley. It't the best way to see the city.
Hope Noah is doing better. :)

Savannah looks wonderful,,a great place to shop and tour. It is on my list of places to see in the south. How fun to see your son too. I am glad to hear Noah is getting along good. I am sure Clara missed you. It's always nice to be home.
Take care this fine tuesday!

Deb said...

Savannah looks absolutely gorgeous! What a fun time you all had!
So happy to read that Noah is doing well :-)

Eye candy! I have always wanted to visit.

Stacey said...

Oh we just went to Savannah two weeks ago for the very first time. I loved it so much. It's funny to look at your pictures and see the same sights we enjoyed. It's a great place. I'm trying to convince my son who is into theater that he needs to look into SCAD.

Lady Pamela said...

Thank you for sharing your day with us all. It makes me feel as though I was there with you!

Angela said...

Well my lip is hung out a mile long...this pouting is getting to be a habit!!! I so hate that I missed the Savannah part of the weekend, next time I have to go so I can keep you awake the whole way down, hahha.
Glad Noah is better, I am sorry I forgot to ask abt. him while we were all together, y'all let me get carried away and then there was no stopping me.

Hopelessly Romantic Art Studio said...

What a wonderful weekend!!!!! Creating,gabbing, and sight seeing in Savannah. OMG! The plates were fantastic and the journals were beautiful. I so love your taste. Thanks for sharing the pics of Savannah; my husband is taking me there next month for our 30th wedding anniversary. I have so wanted to go to those very places; thanks for the preview!!!!!
Blessings, Gerri

Dawn, I have so enjoyed your weekend with the girls. Friends are the best and to spend time doing what you enjoy with one another tops the cake.
Great to hear Noah is doing good.

Hi Dawn,
Love your photos. Those shops are the kind I could browse in for hours! I'd love to see/visit Savannah sometime, preferably in the spring when it's not too hot.
Thanks for sharing, Deb

OMG, I wise I would have been with you in Savannah. I love Savannah GA. We use to live in Macon GA. We are back in Utah now, it's been 26 years. We go back as often as we can. I have never taken the bus tour though. There's so much to see on foot. I want to do the tour the next time we go. Be still my heart.

I grabbed your side bar name, and I will be back. I want to go into those stores in Savannah and I also want to visit your shop.

I'm headed out with hubby for breakfast.

I also want to visit you weight loss sight. I've lost 55 lbs.

Big Hugs
