Found on an alley in downtown Birmingham, the remains of our iconic department store. My mom and I shopped there when I was growing up and in later life, I worked at their Vestavia store for several years. Now it makes me smile as it's taken on another meaning, my love for all things Parisian!

Please Come!

For all of my dear Birmingham area readers, I hope you will stop by Black Sheep Antiques in Harpersville on the 25th for my BIG PRINT SALE. Everything is priced to sell.  We'll have refreshments and you will want to see Barbara Adkins's charming antique shop as well!

Think Pink, Think Spring

I know. I know. We might get another little, weird spring snow or freeze. I prefer to relish the tulips that are popping up and saying a little prayer they will continue to flourish!

Welcome Senator and Mrs. Jones!

On Friday, the STAIR students and tutors at Oliver Elementary welcomed some very special guests. Senator and Mrs. Doug Jones came for a visit to see just how much these second graders in the STAIR of Birmingham program were learning. They greeted each and every student and tutor, then they shared the reading of Dr. Seuss' Oh The Places You Will Go. It was a great day for all of us!
