I'm spending the week with the boyf's family in Tennessee and definitely taking a bit of a break from my normal intense writing/researching/blogging mode...despite my need for a brief hiatus, I thought it would be fun to post some photos of our outings out and about in the beautiful South. Today we went to Casey Jones' Village and Old Country Store here in Jackson. We indulged in fried chicken, okra, biscuits and blackberry cobbler...yummmmm. Then we took a look around the country store...
It was a bit icy and miserable, so I didn't do anything fancy with my ensemble -- though I did break out my new black leather boots [I was supposed to wait until Christmas, so don't tell my grandma ;)].
Molasses and syrup for country cooking...and some delicious candles that smell like flowers in the summer.
Barrels of candy and old-school soda pops...
Apparently they still make Aunt Jemima replicas [a bit politically incorrect, no?]. These amazing candles (right, below) come in various dessert flavors and you burn them in an iron skillet -- too cute!
A whole rack of toy guns...yikes! And possum products...apparently possums are a problem here(?)
All-in-all, a cozy [and filling] day! We will be making a day-trip to Nashville to visit the Grand 'Ole Opry and Opry Land this week -- I'm so excited to see the holiday lights! There should be some pictures coming up from that excursion as well. Take care everyone!!
