a day of exploring

I have been wanting to go to Scott Antique Market for months, but it has never worked out in our schedules since they are only open the second weekend of the month, nine months out of the year. Today Brian and I decided to head down to see what it was all about. We got to 285, but the traffic was horrific. Stopped cars for miles due to road work. Neither of us wanted to spend our precious Saturday sitting in traffic, so we changed our route and headed to midtown and Decatur to check out a couple of other antique shops we had heard good things about. It was such a fun day! 

Paris on Ponce was the first stop. We found some really cool pieces there.. My favorite was a desk made out of an old door.. I have thought about making a coffee table out of a door, but I loved it for a desk!

On our way to Decatur we stopped to get snow balls! These were DELICIOUS. Frosted shaved ice with a scoop of ice cream at the bottom. YUM. 

My favorite part was the hidden gummy bear inside! 

We made it to Decatur (which is where we want to live!) and stopped at Kudzu Antique Market. A little less furniture and more decorative pieces than Paris on Ponce. Very fun. 

 Sadly, we didn't come back with any treasures... We were looking for a cool outdoor table and chairs, but had no luck.. Maybe next month we'll make it to Scott Antique Market. 

We ended our little adventure with margaritas, chips, and salsa on the rooftop patio of La Fonda Latina. What a fun day!
