Sunday Favorite Re-runs

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.

 This week in keeping with my last 2 post I am doing a rerun of a post from 7-6-09..Called
 Natchez Under the Hill and treasures, real treasures....

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  many 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 called Bontura, 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. Molly - you have the prettiest scenery and places to visit around your home. Looks like a great place to live. BLT's and ice tea - my kind of lunch. Glad you had such a great time.

  2. Oh Molly! I REMEMBER this post from before - - - I remember your cute little Rissa and those gorgeous homes!

  3. What a great place to visit. Aren't you lucky that Rizza enjoys doing the same things you enjoy - and at her tender young age that is amazing. I agree with her about the front of that one house - the woodwork is beautiful. My but those houses are gorgeous. I've always enjoyed looking at houses and now I have to add landscaping with that since I love gardening. We're going to Eureka, CA soon and I can't wait to get pictures of all of the beautiful Victorian homes there. I've done it before but was years ago and not the greatest of cameras at that time.
