Shopping in Silverhill


I’ve shown you bits and pieces of beautiful Silverhill, Alabama before (Silverhill Market and Starry Night), and now here’s another reason to visit our neighboring town. Silverhill Furniture and Decor is a gorgeously designed store, located in the old Anderson Garage building, which is nearly 100 years old. Rumor has it, that Henry Ford himself may have visited this garage. How about that?


andersongarage4lg-1Situated in the heart of the tiny downtown, Silverhill Furniture and Decor has some of the most beautiful, unique and fun home accessories I’ve seen in a long time.

Look what I found . . . more Liberty Blue china! After years of searching, and now having more than enough, I’m seeing it everywhere!  That’s the nature of the shopping game.

“A-Peeling!” Hahahaha!  Okay, back to the store . . .

Cottage Storage


Don’t get me wrong, Fairhope has some gorgeous whopper mansions here and there, (and more over there and there), but most residents live in small cottage or ranch style homes where “cottage storage” is always a concern. The home shown above, is a lovely example of a Fairhope cottage designed by my favorite architects, Walcott […]

Fairhope Film Festival


There’s nothing we love more, here on the Gulf Coast, than a good story. Authors who put their tales on paper, artists who paint their stories on canvas, and the Southerners themselves who can spin a yarn like nobody’s business, spoil us with captivating ideas who leave us wanting more. This high standard of storytelling has […]

Nicole Teague

Fairhope remembers 9-11

large flag

If I remember correctly, within a day of the original attack on America by terrorists in 2001, the Fairhope Volunteer Fire Department displayed the large American flag over the main street into town. That first year, it took my breath away and gave me a lump in my throat as I came up over the […]

Southern Universities


Southern Universities are known for offering great educations (most of them), great football (some of them) and great traditions (all of them). Loyalties are fierce and many families have been torn in half when football season rolls around.   Some may scoff at the football hoopla, but we know this game provides huge funding for […]

What a (blog) headache!

What a (blog) headache! Some of you have seen an old blog post for the last few days, others have seen a strange blank page-holder type screen when you’ve tried to visit. Rest assured, everything is fine, I’ve just been busy switching servers to handle the billions and billions of readers who visit here every […]

Touring Glennwood Estates


Here we are in lovely Glennwood Estates, an old established neighborhood in Decatur, Georgia. It was a beautiful summer day for a stroll, so I grabbed my camera to capture some of the charming homes along the way.     The first building I noticed was a beautiful apartment. With screened porches, awnings, arched windows, […]

Cozy Nooks for Great Books


I love a cozy nook as much as I love a good book. I’ve had some wonderful books come across my desk over the past few weeks and even though I’ve had a busy time getting kids back in school, it’s been hard to put the books down. Each story is so interesting, I can’t […]

How does he tote his duck feed?


This is an article I recently wrote for Gulf Coast Newspapers. It’s about a writer for the New York Times who made fun of our beloved Alabama author, Harper Lee for  . . . well, you’ll see. Dwight Garner wrote a book review for “The Mockingbird Next Door” by Marja Mills for The New York […]

Starry Night in Silverhill

H. Stars 1

Silverhill, Alabama is a beautiful rural community to the east of Fairhope. These photos were taken a few weeks ago by my son at our friend’s farm. This is one of the many areas of Baldwin County that is unaffected by city lights. Such a beautiful place, Silverhill’s motto is, “A Good Place to Live.” […]
