Good Stuff in Georgia

Were I to review this week's activities...well... you would be bored. Instead, I choose to share my adventures from last week. I was very fortunate to spend a fun and relaxing few days in Athens with my aunt, uncle and cousins (one of whom was in from Australia, it was a rare and awesome treat to see her!). Think good food, good wine, and lots of good conversation. We ate breakfast at The Grit - a ridiculously good vegetarian place.

There was time to take a run around Athens and do some "hunting" in Chamblee on the way home. The Ice House offered  a gorgeous 50's sofa and a set of really nice set of Danish Modern Chairs (only $140 for all four!)

At Antique Factory, I spied the craziest and most awesome tile-top coffee table I've ever seen, and a set of Blakely Arizona Cactus dinnerware (I thought this motif was only present on tumblers!).

Last weekend was spent celebrating Mr. Cheese's birthday in a low key way: a run in the Chickamauga Battlefield, a walk around downtown and the riverfront, watching lots of sci-fi movies, eating good food, and a trip to Gateway Antique Mall in Ringgold, Georgia, where we spied mod concrete patio chairs, a Krystal restaurant tupperware set, and a fantastic 10 foot long 60's era stained glass window.

It all added up to a delightful week! 

This weekend's plans include a possible visit to our town's annual Brewfest and stuffing ourselves with my mother-in-law's famous tacos. What are you up to this weekend?

Athens is on my short list of cities to visit. LOVE the dishes. Now I'm going to look at the vegetarian restaurant and drool over the menu. I'm hungry!

Looks like there are some cool places to go around there. I have a cousin who lives in Evans, Georgia, so maybe I'd better plan a trip to visit and do some shopping.
