Of course, I found a couple of keepers this weekend…how could I not? This aqua old bottle was $2 & looks very much at home here in the den entertainment center.
This pic doesn’t do this dress justice, but it’s the cutest little linen turquoise dress(matches my eyes!) for $3. Pretty embroidered flowers on the bottom hem. And I wore it to church on Sunday.
Here are the rules:
*Link to the name of the person that tagged you
*Include state and country you live in
*List top 5 favorite local restaurants
*Tag 5 other people and let them know they’ve been tagged
1. Jim & Nicks BBQ – We go to the Hwy. 280 location & it is the best BBQ in town, as far as we’re concerned. I always get the same thing…chopped pork plate with homemade french fries, coleslaw & the best cheese muffins you’ve ever put in your mouth! YUM…it’s good! B’ham is known for it’s BBQ, which I did not know until we moved here.
2. Giuseppe’s Cafe – 925 Eight St. South From City Scene: “If Grandma’s Italian cooking is what you’re after, head to Giuseppe’s, which specializes in pizza, pasta and friendly service.” We visited here for lunch one day. It’s right off I-65, sort of in a neighborhood, & the food was really very good. Have only been there once, but we’d go again. Very casual, but good Italian fare.
3. Classic Joe’s – This place is close to our home & we used to go there quite a bit last summer when my hubby’s son was working there. It’s more of an upscale (but not extremely so) kind of place, with good American food done very well. There’s a big oak tree out front with a huge deck built around it & they have live music on the weekends. Great place to sit & chill. The vanilla bread pudding is to die for!!
4. The Fish Market – I have to include this wonderful place too, even though it’s on Sandi’s list also. I had never seen a fish restaurant quite like this one until we came over here. My hubby loves this place & couldn’t wait for us to go there & again, we are hooked. There’s a new location out in our neck of the woods & that’s the one we frequent. Wonderful fresh seafood, family friendly, & great prices too!
5. Edgar’s Bakery & Cafe – I met some friends here for lunch a few weeks ago & was pleasantly surprised at what a great lunch menu they have. We got there early & it’s a good thing, because lots of folks showed up for lunch. You can also grab something from the bakery on your way out the door. The baked goods will make you drool just looking at them through the glass! I have heard that this place has been around forever & they are known as THE bakery around here.
Great post! Lovely finds.
Meme means “same” in French. Have a great day!
Those yard sales or car boot sales as they have here or charity shops can be fatal to visit. Exciting too. You did get some bargains.
ancient one says
You do good at yard sales!! I always love a bargain, but hate to get up early enough to find many when I go to yard sales. LOL I enjoyed the tour of your dining room. It is lovely.~ann

That creamware tureen is lovely! Nice finds, all around! ~A 🙂
Sandi @ the WhistleStop Cafe says
I love your list…we could have been sitting side by side at Jim & Nicks and not even known it!
Did you see that Kat left us some hints on great places in Destin… good eatin’
Amanda @ Morning Glory Cottage says
Thanks for stopping by the blog the other day. I put your name in the drawing. I also posted a picture of what I’m giving away. I love your finds!! I have a little soup tureen just like your find. I’ve enjoyed it for many years. Thanks for your sweet comments. Come back soon.
I have to go scrounge something up in the kitchen after reading about all the wonderful restaurants~one of the advantages of living in a large town.
Your little tourine is wonderful.
It’s pronounced mim and according to Webster it means an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture. I was curious and looked it up when I did my first meme.
Love your thrift finds! Am amazed at the darlin’ things you found for a song. Wow, Birmingham looks like a great place to go “treasure hunting”. What fun! Am glad to be visiting you again, having come first after your kind blog welcome. I enjoy it here! have a great day. 🙂

Thanks for visiting me today and for putting me on your blogroll!
Now I’m off to return the compliment!
When Friday night comes, I anticipate the rush…getting up bright and early and seeing what wonderful finds are out there waiting for me. You’ve found some lovely things, especially the creamware and the bunny needle point.
You always find the best stuff when you are yard saling. Love that little pillow. The restaurants sound great!
Kim - ScrapToMyLu says
holy moley, you found some good deals! And that pillow! Perfect. You can bet it was probably at least a $30 pillow brand new. I can’t wait to hit some sales this weekend.
Betty Jo says
Rhoda those are super finds! Love the tureen especially. We had a Jim and Nicks nearby when we lived near Nashville, but haven’t seen one around here. Our son loves their cheese biscuits. I haven’t figured out how to pronounce meme either, or what it means. I’ll have to read some of your comments to see if anyone explained it. xoxo
Rhoda, you and I both know that you have way too many bunnies…so hand that pillow over..ha!
Rhoda, the gift wrapping ideas are beautiful….think I would hate to open and mess the wrapping up….
Your yard sale finds are great….never can have too many bunnies, creamwear and the dress is so trendy….Betty
……creamware not creamwear….Betty

I love the little needlepoint bunny pillow~ but then you knew I would!
Rhoda, next time you go to Jim and Nicks you should try the “pig in a…” …hmm, well, now I’ve forgotten what they call it. Anyhow, it’s a HUGE baked potato LOADED and has barbeque on it and everything. OH MAN< it's to DIE for. Me and my hubby actually split one last time!
