Tuesdays Touring Newnan....City Of Homes......

Well, it's Tuesday again. I live in a part of what is know as the Southern Arc. There are so many things that I love about our town. Rolling hills, quiets evenings on the deck, broom sedge glistening in the morning sun, knowing people when you walk down the street or through the supermarket but mostly I love getting a friendly wave from people I know and even some that I don't know.

Come take a little stroll with me through Newnan..........

This is a opossum that graces my hearth. Gypsy Sista gave me this opossum and I promised "Midlife Trucker's Wife" that I would post it today. She has one as well...she must have a Gypsy Sista too.




Birdbaths in a garden with white picket fences (this written while the tune "A Few Of My Favorite Things" rolls through my head and heart).




This is a beautiful house that I pass almost everyday. It sits up on a hill and always looks so very Southern to me.




Kids in my neighborhood riding a little homemade "sled" made of a cardboard box and riding the little hill by their house. They were more than happy to take a moment out of their kiddo business to strike a pose.




This is a beautiful red barn that I always admire when I pass by. Prince and I are going to paint our barn these colors. Of course, ours is not quite so big.....not by a long shot.




A house that I love with a white picket fence all the way around it off of Roscoe Road. Everytime I see this house I think "Happy people live here in this place".




Cows grazing through our little bit of snow that we got Sunday afternoon. It's all gone now, but it was lovely while it was here.




A little snowman that someone made on the side of the road complete with carrot nose and branchy arms. Sooo cute :)




After a long day, Prince and I went to one of our favorite Mexican resturant's La Fiesta. This is our favorite waiter Rene. We always have the Fajita Burrito dinner and its always deliciouso. We were so hungry and it was so good that we almost la licked the plates.



Come down to Newnan and see us some time. We'll serve you fresh smiles, sweet tea, friendly conversation in our little town. It's the best of both world's. City convenience and small town charm. This place is a hidden jewel where Prince and I can expect the unexpected, discover hidden jewels and still hear the train whistle in the near distance all the while knowing that we are home for good.

  1. I finally stopped in to say hello! I am glad I did! We already have something in common. We love animals! Before I got pregnant with my first daughter my husband and I fostered dogs in our home for a no kill shelter and we found them homes. Dogs have always been a passion of mine. I love taking care of them and I have saved quite a few of their lives.

    Anyway.. we have many mutual friends and I am always seeing the picture of you and your husband with your funny glasses on.. LOL!
    I signed your follower list! I love your blog and i have read quite a bit of it!
    Please stop by and do the same!

  2. Dear Reggie Girl,

    I guess you and Patty could be the best candidates to represent your towns; the Newman and Crisfield Amabassadors. You both are making amazing progress in showing and uplifting your hometowns..

    Please keep it up. You are making our blogging experience so fun. Browsing on your site is like opening a new box full of surprises.

    And you're such a super sweet Prince and Reggie Girl too.. Thanks a lot..

  3. Thanks for the walk-and-talk photo tour. Makes me hungry for Mexican food. We have an opposum that has figured out how to get into our trash bin. Unfortunately, he or she hasn't figured out how to get out. I release him/her regularly.

    Keep up the good work.

  12. OK, danged thing ate my comment.

    ANYWAY, I had said that as a representative from the cold, hard (CRAP) north, I'll tell you carboard makes a GREAT impromptu sled. Its second only to large pieces of plastic sheeting. If you wrap yourself like a hot dog in some of that, DOOD, HANG ON!!!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! ;-)

  13. What a super fabulous post! I loved seeing all the places in town that you admire so much, see each day on your way around town, the little things that perhaps most people would over look but that you and your camera captured for all of us to share with you! I love that huge house on the hill! And the one with the picket fence - I too always figured that happy people must live in a house where there is white picket fence! I can NOT wait to be up and about, my camera in my hand and getting out there to snap some pictures of our area to share with everyone. I am sure I can find some lovely little corners of my world to "show off" too. You make me want to take you up on that offer and "come on down" to see your lovely Newman. Some day, some day'! :-) have a great one, Debby

  14. As a child, growing up in GA, I know that someone had a load of fun making that snowman. That is not an every winter experience! :-)

  16. Well hello Princess, at last I've hopped across the Pond to take a look at your Blog and your Life. What a lovely tour of your town - it looks so beautiful. I love the houses and the picket fences. Thank you for visiting me in England - let's keep in touch. Margot xxx

  17. I have a serious thing for picket fences. They really are peaceful. I just need to figure out how to bring one inside so I can see it during the day.

  18. Thanks for dropping by! Loved your tour. Love of my life is a South Georgia boy (Waycross) and while I am a Navy brat, my family on my mom's side are all Georgians. Ah, nostalgia....

  19. Thank you for posting the picture of your adorable little possum as well. They are identical to one another. How cute they are. The pictures of your town are beautiful. Love those houses.

  20. How beautiful! I enjoyed my stoll with you. I'll be needing some of that sweet tea (pronounced swee-tay in these parts) please.

    A bloggy adventure awaits! Pack your bags and meet us at the train station in Paris!

  21. You are so lucky to live in such a picturesque town. I hope when Big John retires we can get our frozen rear ends someplace warmer, like Georgia. Perhaps we will check out Newnan.

  22. Reggie Girl, beautiful town. We have more snow here in New York. :-) Always love the contrast between the blue sky and the snow.

  24. Thanks for such a nice tour.
    I wouldn't mind a little tea. In fact it is just about tea time so I have to cut this comment short.

  25. Hi! Thanks so much for visiting & leaving me your sweet comment! So you have an oppossum, living is it? I only ask because I have had some in my yard & I woory about my two dogs coming face to face with Mama O. :-(

    Your town is very picturesque, thank you for the tour! How do you like snow? I shipped that over just for you guys, we had too much here in Chicago...

    I know what you mean about white picket fences. It would be nice to believe only happy families live behind them, but sometimes love can be found in the most unusual places, and that, my new friend, can be anywhere.

    xoxo

  28. Dear Reggie Girl,

    Thanks for stopping in. I love GA. I do a show at the Gwinett Center just North of Atlanta about 3 times a year. I'll be back to see what else you are up to.

  29. It looks like such a nice little town. Newnan, I'll have to look on the map to see where that is located. I'm originally from Georgia, but have been in Texas for 34 years this June...a bit over half my life. Wow!

  30. Your pics make me appreciate my little town even more...your snow will be gone soon. Such a nice treat.

  31. That song always makes me feel sentimental! P.S...Every little dog you post is cuter than the last!

  32. Looks like a very nice, peaceful town. Thanks for the great photos.

    One question, though...what's the difference between a possum and an Opossum?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Looks like a great place to live! I love what you're doing with your blog - what a great cause. Our dog is a shelter dog and I'd never get one anywhere else.
