Re-Run Sunday

It's time again for Sunday Favorite Re-runs, a new Meme hosted by Chari over @ happytodesign It is so much fun to go back and re-run some of my favorite post.

Natchez and a little junkin' along the way.

Last Weds my Sis and I took my little Rissa to Natchez and junkin' we had such a great time. We went to several Thrift stores and found several items both for me and for her. What we found is for another post. We toured the city and also went to Natchez Under the learn more about it click here.....Natchez Under the Hill.
I took alot of pictures because little girl was so excited, she is extremely unusual for an 8 yr old. She loves just riding and looking at beautiful old homes and never gets bored.
This is she and my Sis, her Great-Aunt Dean

Of course the tom boy in her found a great old tree to climb...
Next are just some old houses that she had to have pictures of....

The one above is being remodeled and she just loved the wood work on the front....
Then it was on to the Natchez under the Hill area and the MS River...
She loves looking at the River, she just acted like she'd never seen it before and she has, she said that the river is ever changing and moving....
Signs in a Park above the River
A beautiful old home across the road from the park it is so lovely with the court yard between the main house and the kitchen...

You can just catch a glimpse of the River Gambling boat at the Dock, if you let yourself drift back in time, you can almost see an original old Riverboat that has just docked on it's way to Memphis from New Orleans, you can just see part of Natchez under the Hill; my the stories those trees and old buildings could tell.
A look at what is left of Natchez Under the Hill
The old Train Depot, it is now remodeled into up scale Condos. But they still allow the Carriage Tours to pick up customers in the same old stop that they have been in since the 60s.
And last but not least a view of the Mississippi River Bridge as we entered into LA for lunch.
We had a great Lunch of BLT's and ice tea, at a small place called Mickie's just across the river in LA.
I plan to show some of our treasure in the near future, so be sure and check back later.
My little Rissa is in Johnson City, TN with her Nanna and Grumpy now and I sure do miss her.
My real treasures that We received this day, where the treasure of memories that My little girl will remember for years to come and the joy I received for sharing them with her..


  1. How sweet your little Rissa is! Since this is an old post, do you see her more often now? I adore my grandgirls, and so blessed to have them only half an hour away. Love the old houses...we went to LA and stayed a couple of days while waiting to board our cruise ship...we had a wonderful tour of the french quarter and a lot of the homes that our military lived was better than the cruise. These photos are great, Molly, and I hope you get to experience this again with your sis and little Rissa!

    God bless,

  2. She is a cutie!!! And I would love to live in any of the houses you shared. Thanks!

  7. What a beautiful tour you took us on. I am a newby to MS (well almost 4 years) and looking so forward to exploring Natchez! :o)

  8. Hi Molly...

    Ohhh shoot...I just spent the last several minutes writing you the longest note and then it didn't show up! Don't know what happened!

    Anyway...what a fabulous post to share with us for Sunday Favorites, my friend! I loved looking through your photos of all the fabulous old homes of Natchez!!! And...I loved the home with all the unique wood working...the one they were remodeling! Simply gorgeous!!! I've never been to Natchez but would love to visit there some day! Loved seeing old town under the hill! Fabulous and so much history there I'm sure! Was wondering if they have problems with flooding...being right on the river?

    Well my friend, it looks like you had a fabulous day with your Sis and precious granddaughter! How very sweet! Thank you for sharing your tour and special day with us for Sunday Favorites...loved it!!!

    Have a super Sunday, my friend!

  9. She is truly a great traveling buddy! How fun to have these trips together :o) I love the old homes and happy that Rissa wanted photos of them :o) Also, I see a neat tree with lots of branches...and I can't help but want to climb on them too! Our kids always are pointing out trees and teasing me, cuz they know that I would! (Even as "old" as I am! haha)

    Love this re-post!

    Blessings & Aloha!

    (I had to take a quick peek on your blog, before heading to bed! Work again tomorrow, so it may be Wed night before I get a chance to come back!)
