Tuesdays Touring Newnan - City Of Homes

I love Tuesdays because I love to show you my beautiful hometown of Newnan, Georgia. We have such a beautiful, charming and friendly town. We love to sit in rocking chairs on our front porches, sit under the stars at night for outdoor concerts or grand fireworks during the summer and we love to have visitor's. So next time you're in town.....please stop by and I'll give you a real grand tour in person.

Things I spotted this week while out and about.......


One of our City Of Homes signs going into the city limits........


A picturesque horse farm with a winding drive that leads to a pond......


A really old tin building that I think is cool........


Cousin Sis and Uncle Baby. A friend of our's son took this picture with my camera while we were all out listening to our friends play music at our favorite coffee shop Espresso Lane.......


The proprietor of Arnalls Grocery, the local feed and seed store in Newnan where I buy all of my gardening seeds and supplies. Look at that sweet grandson of theirs.....


The orginal movie projector from The Alamo Movie Theater downtown on the Square......


Panoply Interior Design..........


The Dr. Thos J Jones building in historic downtown Newnan........


I loved this display out front of one of my favorite stores The Other Side Of The Moon. What a cool place to shop.......


The "Hip To Be On The Square" wall collage in Fabiano's Pizza. And it is hip to be on the square in Newnan where all of the action is..........


I love See Rock City birdhouses and couldn't resist this shot.........


A grand Weeping Willow I spotted. Isn't it a beauty?.........


Thanks for having a little visit with me in Newnan today. We hope to see you live and in person real soon. We can all go be hip on the square together!!

Come on down and see us y'all...........

  12. Barn and dress shop. I especially like those. Newnan sure has changed since I was there last.

    I think we should each get one of those dresses and go visit Butler and Bagman, or at least steal that little red car and go for a joy ride.

    Except, that I don't wear dresses much. Kind of hard to lie on the ground or climb on top of my car for some of the newspaper shoots I do in a dress. You never know when that next shot will be around the corner.

    And there is always a shot around the corner when you are in a dress and don't have a camera. Isn't that right, Mark?

  19. Reggie girl, you show us such charming images - Did I say I was moving over there - You could be my sponsor for emigration after all, and you have a spare mattress, right?! ;)

  26. Hi there! I've spend alot of time in Fitzgerald GA, in Irwin County GA. Is that near you? My former mother in law still lives in Ocilla Ga, also in Irwin county. She and I still like each other and I talk to her often.

  29. Love seeing pictures of towns that I know nothing about. Georgia is way high on our list of places to go when we hit the road in "Tubster" the motorhome. Maybe next year!!!

    Make you laugh? Horse walks in to a bar & the bartender says, "Why the long face?" I know, I know. An oldie for sure.

  34. I like your pics of your Home Town. I was in Aiken, South Carolina recently and it looked a bit like that there. The dress shop looks interesting. I like small, specialist shops a lot.I'm only just discovering America, so find these sorts of posts very 'cool'.
    Blessings, Star

  41. Wow, I love the pictures! I want to eventually move to a small town with a warm, friendly atmospheres, where we can *safely* have carnivals and shows and neighborhood get-togethers. I'm slightly jealous. :P
