A walk and lots of movies

The flowers in front of this house are always so pretty! Would you like to go about the city with us today?
Just step carefully..........look at this sidewalk! LOL
OOOOOPS--here's another one! MERCY!

Magnolias are now in full bloom and the crepe myrtles are starting to bloom out

Greenery tumbles down all over the walls and gates

The leaves on this one are SO BIG!

a glimpse into a secret garden........
.......and a look at my fringed hippie pocketbook! ha ha LOL
of all my "hippie chick" pocketbooks, I think this one has the longest fringe! ha ha

Let's go take a closer look at these big windowboxes

they are always beautiful and are different every year. I'm not sure if the owners take care of them of if the Window Box Ladies do them

Beads Today.......this beaded necklace was sent to me as a birthday present a few years ago

We can walk over to the Calhoun Mansion too.....

This is an amazing old mansion. Every time I walk by I remember Kirstie Alley standing up there on that balcony for a movie scene. She played the role of "Virgilia" in The North and the South t/v mini series.

I love the mosaic sidewalks out front, so pretty!

Lights are coming on in homes........it's time to go in. Maybe enjoy a good movie?

"Dinner and a movie"
Have you seen any good movies lately?
We've watched alot of old movies this spring. I think alot of them were the old Lifetime made for TV movies.   Years ago Lifetime had alot of good movies.
 I loved this old love story with Melissa Gilbert.It was good!

Got to watching alot of old Valerie Bertinelli movies.
Taken Away, from 1989

1984--Shattered Vows with Patricia Neal
The Promise of Love-1980, set in Vietnam era
In a Child's Name from 1991

Cradle of Conspiracy (1994) had Danica McKeller (from Wonder Years) and Dee Wallace. Illegal baby selling ring story.
Seeds of Deception --also called "the Baby Maker"--the Doctor Cecil Jacobson story (based on a true story I think?)--1994. 


another Melissa Gilbert movie---1993--Shattered Trust. Deals with child abuse.

Both Melissa Gilbert and Valerie Bertinelli did ALOT OF good tv movies back in the day.
Missing Children, 1982. Young mother's children stolen and put up for adoption. It has one of my favorite actresses-Mare Winningham, and also Polly Holliday. (remember Flo? from the t/v show Alice in the 1970s. She's the one who always said "kiss my grits!" ha ha LOL)

Missing Children is Set in the 1940's and deals with the illegal black market babies at the Tennessee Children's Home.

Also about the Tennessee Children's Home--1993.Mary Tyler Moore did a great job in this role!
and finally, a fun and lighthearted little movie with Barbara Eden, also one of my favorite actresses
I loved  this cute movie!
Isn't she glamorous and gorgeous?

If any of the movies you see look good to you I'm sure you can find them on your movie stations, at your libraries, or just order them from amazon maybe.
Not everybody enjoys these old movies but we do!
Hope y'all are having a good weekend! It's HOT HERE, BUT we are still venturing out for walks.

Battery Houses

I found this cute little book at the thrift store back in the Winter

 I took it out to photograph it with some of the homes featured

the Pink House has been getting worked on for some time now

It was a COLD NIGHT! one of my dearest friends made this gorgeous scarf for me. Every time I wear it--it's like a hug from her

Stripes and florals......ha ha LOL!

So it was a cold night, and got dark on us....so the lighting was bad.......so I went back during the daytime to try to make pictures again

always fun to go look at houses!
