Bon Appétit!

The chef at Chez Lulu in English Village seemed like the perfect person to wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Charlotte Woodson Antiques has this fabulous life size ( or I assume it's life size) sheep for sale. It seems to be keeping watch over Colin's Creatures.  How sweet is that!

Au Revoir... à bientôt !

Today I leave for Paris to gather as many new photographs as I can snap. This is the very first time I've put my dear Birmingham Alabama Daily Photoblog on hold.  It was a big decision as I've posted every day for five and a  half years!  It's time for me to take a brief vacation, and just relax and enjoy the city I call my second home. I'll be back and posting again here on the 24th. I hope you, my faithful and dear readers will come back for more from Birmingham.... the Magic City!

Farewell to the PIg

The Piggly Wiggly Grocery Store in Crestine Village has long been THE place to shop but also meet and greet friends and neighbors.  It was a great, small store where you got to know the checkers and call them by name.  They closed their doors November 1st and this was a parade float in the Mountain Brook Mystics Halloween Parade. I"m sad too. I loved shopping at the Pig!

I'll admit, I was at the fields at Sicard Hollow to photograph my granddaughter cheering. This guy walks by with his lacrosse gear.  Those gloves look impressive. Maybe I need to photograph a game soon!

Parade Reflection

The Mt. Brook Mystics Halloween Parade that winds through Crestline Village is a family affair. Neighbors gather and make their floats and there's the Mountain  Brook cheerleaders and dancers. It's just a fun community event. I caught this reflection on the MBFD truck!

DIa de los muertos - Remembering

Birmingham artist Kevin Irwin lost her mom a few months ago, so this Day of the Dead Festival was very special to her. She stood in line for a very long time in order to get this fabulous face painting, but that wasn't all. Around her neck was her mom's locket, on her fingers, her rings and in her pocket the pink and blue beads she and her mom wore in the hospital the day she was born.
