{ Friday Foto Friends #42 }




Pappy and I spent most of the day last Saturday out and about.  We visited one of my favorite little towns near us, Newport, TN.  There's a great thrift store and a little hole-in-the-wall store that has lots of cheap junk merchandise! It's just a small town at the base of the Great Smoky Mountains and is just a skip, hop and jump to Cosby where lots of people from around these parts love to visit Carver's Apple Orchard.  That's on our agenda for our next visit this fall.  

I love this motel that's part of the old downtown area......


We drove into an area we had never been before and came upon this bridge with beautiful purple flowers in planters down both sides.....


I'm missing Pappy since he's gone back to work, but I'm getting tons of work done.  

Be sure and link up your photos below.

HOPE everybody has a great Friday and weekend.

  3. That stone bridge is so beautiful with those flowers dripping down the side. Those old stone buildings are so nice to see, and I wonder what the rooms are like in that motel. Too many have fallen into disrepair. It's always great to see good preservation (or new that looks old, anyway). Great share, Deb!!

  6. What a quaint motel! Did you go in? I love to go into old hotels and see what they are like. Ah, Deb, my heart aches every time I see photos of Tennessee. Some day! Maybe we'll even be neighbors!

  7. Would love to stay a night in that motel, very quaint. I know the house must be quiet with Jack back at work, but I know what ya mean about catching up on housework. I love Mr D being retired, we have so much fun together ~ but I must say my housework has suffered. Oh well, I'd rather enjoy Mr D than dust and mop anyway!

  8. The motel and those purple flowers are gorgeous! Would love to be able to grow flowers like that. Someday I'm going back to the Smoky Mountains. They look so beautiful. How wonderful to live so close.

  9. Beautiful motel. I once saw one similar outside Gettysburg, Pa. That highway is wonderful. I love when towns keep things pretty.
    I have family in Tn. It is a beautiful state.
    Have a lovely day Debbie!
