Old 27 Grill

Nights were cool. The bug zapper would bzzzzt an unlucky mosquito now and then and laughter would echo across our smoke-filled carport. These are my childhood memories of summer nights spent sitting outside with our next door neighbors. I wish I could say that the smoke came from a BBQ grill, but it did not. Every […]

How to Rock a Wine Festival

“When you wear a hat, it is like medicine for the soul.” Add to that the medicinal properties of wine and a perfect weekend at the San Destin Wine Festival was born. Also known as the “Kentucky Derby of Wine Festivals,” Mr. Cozi and I were so excited to attend this event in April. As you all […]

Planning for Retirement

It amazes me how often Mr. Cozi and I turn to each other these days and say, “that was fun”! In spite of a hitch in our git-alongs, turning into pumpkins at sunset and a pillbox that now looks more like my jewelry organizer; we are truly planning for retirement by practicing fun every weekend. We […]

Lord, Teach Me to be Generous

I am blessed with many friends, but I received a double dose of generosity from two special ladies this week. Joan Moore and Pat Dupre are two friends that I love spending time with. They each give of themselves in different, but the sweetest of ways and I am blessed to know them both. The Prayer of St. […]

Mr. Cozi and I decided to see a movie over the weekend and as a result witnessed something so generous that it made me proud to be an American. We heard rave reviews about the movie, American Sniper, so we headed over to the Premiere Cinemas in Spanish Fort, AL.  After getting our popcorn and drinks, […]

Our group of ladies was very excited to get all dressed up, meet together in a room with a view of the beautiful Mobile […]

Souvenir Dreams

The difference between the plastic back scratcher and an oil painting from Italy is mega bucks. So, it’s my purpose today to show you some of the great keepsakes that fall somewhere between the scratcher and the painting. The word “souvenir” in Latin means “to come to mind,” and that is the purpose of all […]

Bliss by Candlelight

The outer candles were lit and the wax dripped down the tapers.The one candle in the center of the candelabra stood dark. A wick unlit. The bride and groom each took their candles, lit the one in the middle, blew out their candles and left only one glowing in the center. A sign of their union and eternal […]

A Landscaping Dream

Fall is here and it’s time to think about bulbs to plant, fall foliage trips, and when to purchase mums and pumpkins for the porch. So, I went back through my Italy photos for inspiration and found these winery photos. I now want to redesign my yard to look like this. If I could recreate […]

Hello!
I learned of your blog through “Fairhope Supply Company.” I was so excited to read your first post on the Fairhope Vintage Shop. I’m obsessed with with all things vintage recently and had no idea this store even existed. Thanks for sharing this news. I’ll be visiting Trisha soon.
