The cat in the photo above caught my eye in a bookstore. I loved the way they had it sitting in the window - it was pretty dark in this window that I didn't even notice the burgler looking bookend guy until I looked at the photo later. It's so fun when that happens. I called this photo catburgler!

I loved this book. I wanted to buy it for Zora, but when I was ready to take it to the register I thought that maybe it wasn't quite appropriate for her. I know Alison and Jim would like it, but it might be grown up humor in a kids book. Well, anyway, I took a picture of it and I loved the store it was in, too. The store is A.T. Hun. Oh Tom loved that store. We stopped by there after dinner on Saturday night because there was a picture of "The Dude" outside. The Dude is from the movie The Big Lebowski. It just so happens that the guy who created the painting (and many more inside the store) was working the shop that evening, so he and Tom were exchanging their favorite lines from the movie. It was quite funny.
I saw these for the first time in Rome and thought it was unusual but when I was in Savannah I saw them again - have you seen these? Have you had one?
If you are wondering what I'm talking about, it's the aluminum Coke bottles above. They are smaller bottles and cost more. I think the bottles look really cool, but I'm not sure if they are worth twice the price!
Then I found these lovelies. Yummm, pralines! There were samples being given at the door, so I wasn't tempted to buy any to take home. It was a pretty cold day, but this candy store was hot. The sweet, buttery, chocolaty, pecany smell. The warmth of the freshly made candies. The dozens and dozens of tourists crowded into the shop. It made for a nice little hot spot :)
I thought it might be fun to get a little palm reading or possibly see what the Tarot cards said about me, since Tom wasn't with me. He'd just tease me to no end!
But after seeing these stairs, I had a feeling my reading might say something like -- "you are stuck on this floor until someone comes to help you down the stairs because I see a fall in your future!" Those steps were steep, uneven and just plain scary. So, I didn't go.
Cats, Cokes, Candies and Karma :) That's some of what I found in Savannah.
Hope you've had a great week!
