Flora-Bama Scavenger Hunt 2022

 Hello friends.

I haven't been posting because we have been traveling a lot lately for wresting tournaments and memory building with the Grandkids.  This last week, we went to Franklin, Tennessee for the 37th Annual Dickens of a Christmas Festival.  It was the best street festival I have ever been too - I am so going back next year if at all possible.  A few weeks ago, we went to a Wrestling Tournament in Orange Beach, Alabama.  The condo we stayed in was immediately next door to the Flora-Bama bar which is a very famous bar located in Florida and Alabama (right on the line).  My husband, one of my daughters, and my Son-in-law, decided to go over to the bar one night while the rest of us stayed in and watched Christmas movies.  We decided to send them a list of things to do while at the bar (a scavenger hunt).  They had to send us pictures after they completed each item and they needed to include them in the picture (or one of them).  We did this mainly to entertain us, but they had fun too.  Here is my SIL finding someone taller than him - this Santa was 6'8ish. 

This was a selfie outside with the sign. 
My daughter was wearing a GA shirt, so we told her to find two more SEC shirts for a photo.
This was the list (no getting two things done in one picture either)
*Something from the North
*Something Christmas-y
*Three SEC T-shirts
*My daughter wearing someone else's hat
*Something Tie-Dye
*A bartender friend
*Something Patriotic (they sent two of those)
*Skull and Crossbones
*A blue drink
*A new friend you actually know something about (i.e., really make a friend - they made many lol)
*A picture of my husband touching one of the bras hanging in the bra room
*My husband singing (video)
*Someone taller than my SIL and husband
*A picture with one of the bands 

My husband doesn't drink and he hasn't been to this bar in 30 years, but he had a blast.  They said he smiled and laughed the whole time. He actually did have a drink too. This makes my heart happy because he lives in a lot of pain and a night full of smiles is a rare thing. 

I have lots of drink pictures to qualify for Elizabeth's T-party - miss you all!

Here is one last picture - it was taken at the place we at breakfast before heading home.  I forgot how much I love Orange Beach.  Nothing like a good cup of coffee on the bay. 




  1. It sounds like you've been busy but having loads of fun Nancy. I love the idea of a bar in 2 states. I wonder who they pay taxes to? And a scavenger hunt is always fun. I hope you had a great T day and in case you aren't by again before Christmas, have a wonderful holiday season. hugs-Erika

  2. It's been ages since I was on a scavenger hunt!

    The festival in Franklin sounds like fun :) Happy T Day

  4. Sounds like you've been having heaps of fun, great! Hugs, Valerie

  5. Scavenger's hunts are always fun for the kids but I would rather be at home watching the Christmas movie!
    Happy Belated Tea Day,

  6. Well Nancy.. you can be absent from T as long as your having fun! I do apologize for being late to T .. but i have a doctors note!!! I swear not 5 minutes after i linked to T hubby walks in the door and says, ' We need to go to the hospital ', ... sigh.. He had tried to cut off his fingers with a power tool! So several hours, 12 stitches, and one broken finger later ... he's doing alright! Happy Belated T day! Hugs! deb

  7. Well you've made the best excuse ever not to be blogging my friend! There's nothing more important and spending time with precious people in your life! Enjoy all the moments and thanks for sharing your fun post my friend! Happy heart-warming Holidays!

  8. You don't have to tell me. I know I'm late visiting. And I even spent much of today on the phone sorting out different problems. Sadly, I don't have a note from my doctor (grin).

    It sounds like even though you are very busy, you took time to have fun, too. And of coourse, it appears everyone else did, too. Thanks for sharing this fun post that has a ton of drinks in every photo with us for T this week, dear Nancy.

  9. Fun pictures and such great memories!

  10. What a fun post, that sounds like you had a great time. Sorry for my lateness, have a sick kitty. Happy T Day! Elle/EOTC xx

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
