Sweet Southern Pies and Porch Swings...

Sweet Southern Vintage things are on my mind tonight...

Like old hymns and paper fans.

Makes me want to throw on a ruffle-y retro apron and bake a sweet buttermilk pie and a PEE-CAN pie...

Or How about the lazy creaking of a porch swing a-rockin'?

I've always wanted some willow wood porch furniture. It's so rustic and unique.

This pretty vintage Southern belle dress is sublimely ethereal, I can picture it with gloves and pearls!

How about some iced tea? We drink it year round down here in Texas yawl! And it better be fresh brewed. None of that instant nonsense. You don't know how many times my mother said she missed Texas tea when we lived up north.  I have a special place in my heart for the Luby's Cafeteria tea ladies.

Or a big old farm table to gather 'round and snap green beans for supper. I love a table that is so timeworn that it takes a beating everyday but only gets more beautiful because of it.

Oh my, I absolutely LOVE that church photo! I don't have a Southern bone in my body, by nearly every time I type the word, "blessings", I miss type it as, "blessins" and it makes me think maybe I have at least a Southern index finger! ;0)

Anne said...

Y'all are so sweet in the South! I must visit sometime!Nothing like Southern hospitality!

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

I'm not from the south... but I am so southern at heart! I love the life you just pictured!!! I certainly am a country girl!

Jeanette@Creating a Life Studio said...

I'm not from the South either, but my Grandma was. It must be my "roots" making me feel weepy over these things-or maybe I'm just a little crazy : )
I appreciate this lovely post.

Trish @TheOldPostRoad said...

Love that church picture! And I have been picking up pecans (peecans) in my yard, today!

Ron said...

Love your home! Just found your Framhouse site today via My French Country Home. Will stop by again - busy renovating a farmhouse w 5 acres in a sleepy coastal town in Oregon. Your decorating style is very similar to mine - very comfy but chic!

Angie said...

I just love living in the south. Cute post!

That apron!!! Actually... everything. I could have been lost on this post for days. Would it be weird if I wanted to get married in that dress?

Oh memories of my childhood ! My Daddy and his siblings were all born in Texas. We waved those fans and snapped those beans !
Took my Sweetie "up Nawth" (we live in S. Georgia) and he couldn't believe they didn't serve sweet tea.
thanks for the memories...
