"Tada!" in Atlanta

Today, another page from my summer album:

An airplane ride is a promise of
adventure...even if it's just a
brief trip.

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
and waffles.

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!
