Here and There with a Bit of This and That

Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living. Today on the blog, we are chatting about lots of different things–from where I have been to what will be happening on SSL this week…”Good Lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise” *smile* These days I hate to make carved-in-stone plans because I never know what will come up to change them…sometimes good things like family coming to visit…sometimes not-so-good things like my AC unit freezing up and creating a small pool in the basement. No matter what happens, focus on the good and pray a lot!

Last week we had family come for a visit, so I took a little break from blogging to spend time with them. It was great to share the front porch and to sit a spell. During their visit, we all attended the John Cowan concert at Down Home in Johnson City. It was fun for all…However, I do wish they had a dance floor because I love to move around…I only like to sit for a spell…not for a couple of hours *wink*

This weekend my family added a new member, and we are very relieved that mommy and baby are doing good. Baby girl made an early appearance…and everyone is excited to have a baby to spoil! I am just upset that I did not get the door hanger finished! Tomorrow I will be back in the studio to wrap up a few projects *fingers crossed*

Last week I spent a lot of time in the studio working on custom projects and new items. I am debating on opening up an online shop...can I handle the post office? *wink*

Have you ever had one of those weeks that was long, busy but good? That was mine last week, and to top it off, the hubby, Abby and I made a quick trip to Birmingham to attend the Home + Remodeling Show. I will have more on that later in the week + Abby has fabulous interviews coming up on her blog. So, y’all stay tuned because you don’t want to miss out on the fun and SSL’s top picks from the show.

The little family and I stayed at The Tutwiler in downtown Birmingham. It was absolutely stunning and charming, and I totally recommend staying there!

Look at this doorknob from The Tutwiler! I love details like this...and old buildings!

Whew! It was a whirlwind seven days, but I would not trade them for anything *smile* I have all kinds of goodies planned for y’all this week–gluten-free top picks (featuring some local baked goods), top picks from the Birmingham Home + Remodeling Show, an update on a few of the projects happening at Hathorn Hall, and the fall leaf report. If there is any time left, I will go shopping for fabulous, junky treasures *smile*

This is one of the fabulous finds from last weekend's junk adventure. This vintage office chair is the perfect shade of orange. I don't know why, but I am on an orange kick lately! Must be the fall air *smile*
