It's That Time of Year


I'm home from 10 wonderful days in Paris and just in time to gear of for Thanksgiving.  Here in Alabama. you are likely to find a pecan pie alongside the traditional pumpkin on most dinner tables. Whether you pronounce it Pee-can or Pe-cahn, it's delicious!

Artists' Pallets

City Paper Company redesigned their showroom and found a fabulous way to reuse their wooden pallets.  The creative kids at Space One Eleven turned them into works of art. I want one!!!

Throwback Thursday - Fall at the BMA

 Facebook friends love Throwback Thursday where they post old photos from years gone by. I decided I'd try and do that here from time to time. I've hosted this blog for 6 1/2 years daily and I'm fairly certain that not many of you have visited this blog every single day, so a re-post might be a good thing.  Today one of my very favorite autumn shots of the bench outside the Birmingham Museum of Art.

Sail On

 One of the pluses of living in the Deep South is that you can play outside a lot longer. This weekend I looked on in horror as friends in Maine ( a given) and North Carolina ( are you kidding me??) posted first snowfall photos on Facebook.  Although we have had to turn our heat on a few mornings to knock the chill off, I'm betting that this sailor has had his boat out recently.  Spotted on Lake Logan Martin near Birmingham.

Remembering Ron

Last night was one of my favorite events in Birmingham, Dia de los Muertos.  It brings our city together to observe this wonderful Hispanic celebration. Friends and family often build altars to remember loved ones lost.  This year was very special for me.  My friend Martha lovingly arranged an altar for her husband and our dear friend Ron Council .  Ron was a fabulous man and loved by so many in our community. She chose just the right photos and mementos that exemplified Ron so perfectly! Ron Council, we miss you so, but remember you with such love for your life and all you meant to all of us and the city of Birmingham!
