Today, another page from my summer album:
|An airplane ride is a promise of|
adventure...even if it's just a
|Welcome to Atlanta, Georgia!|
|It was more of a food trip, really.|
Lunches composed of sweet tea,
fried green tomatoes...
|...and scrambled eggs with grits & a biscuit |
on the side. A satisfying meal from
The Flying Biscuit Cafe.
|Pickled vegetables and mini biscuits to |
whet the appetite at Southern Art,
Chef Art Smith's restaurant.
|Followed by scrumptious fried chicken |
|A visit to the farmer's market is|
definitely on the agenda.
|Fruit tarts for two, please.|
|And on another day, the Food Truck Park...|
|...for some lunch and a sigh-inducing|
After all that eating, it's time to gather inspiration!
|New and vintage finds at Paris on Ponce.|
|It's a warehouse-like space with dreamy rooms|
and delightful details.
|I loved the the Westside Provisions District,|
a relatively new development with unique shops
that meet anyone's needs, whether it's food,
fashion, crafts, exercise or interior design.
Atlanta is also associated with Coca-Cola. Didn't join the tour, but popped into the gift shop and found these:
|T-shirts made out of plastic bottles|
|Bags and clutches made of soda tabs|
|Pouches with wrist handles made of recycled plastic|
|Pens made from recycled car parts and |
sunglasses made from plastic bottles.
Aren't these TADA!?
A cosmopolitan city that hasn't lost its Southern charm -- that's how I would describe Atlanta. I can't wait to return!
