Friday Favorites: Stuff I, Myself, Like

Cute overload by Vintage Y'all.

Lovely in Lilac by Vintage Y’all.

Happy Friday, y’all! And welcome to Spring, if it’s arrived in your part of the world.

Here’s this week’s roundup:

On Vintage Y’all, Southern expat Kathie takes cute vintage stuff, adds a little fairy dust, and makes it even cuter. I’ve got ever-expanding collection of vintage glassware and china, and her pics are just feeding my addiction. But in a good way.

And on to vintage of a different sort…Have y’all seen the weird and wonderful collection of old photos at Black and WTF? Some of them are real head scratchers. Also, bonus points for the blog’s name!

WTF, indeed.

WTF, indeed.

Raising Arizona ranks close to the top of my Funniest Movies EVER list. So imagine my delight when Todd Pack celebrated the film’s 26th anniversary by sharing 26 fun and informative tidbits. PLUS I just checked and it’s available on Netflix streaming. Hooray!

Ok, I’m not sure whether or not this voicemail is real, but it sort of falls into the can’t-make-this-shit-up camp. Either way, it’s fun to picture a bunch of old ladies roughing up a truck driver who hit their car.


And finally…even the best high school cheerleaders have nothing on these human pyramid builders. Not for the faint of heart. Spoiler alert: They sometimes collapse.

What’s your favorite thing that happened this week? Please do tell!

Here’s my roundup:

Hope over at the Fairhope Supply Co. shares 23 Southern sayings she overheard during the course of one week, including “Does this camo come in pink?” and “She didn’t even bother to put the KFC on her own plate.” Enjoy!

I used a couple of Nick Russell’s amazing photos to illustrate my post on Faulkner a way long time ago. If you’ve never had the opportunity to explore Rowan Oak for yourself, these pics will take you there. Almost as good as sneaking past the barriers to get a closer look for yourself. Almost…

The writing's on the wall at Faulkner's house.

Planning a culinary excursion around the South anytime soon? Don’t leave home without Garden & Gun’s handy guide to the best eats. Sure, it’s incomplete at only 50, but even a list of 500 would be, so…

If you’re in more of a DIY Southern food mood, check out Something Swanky’s recipe for Pecan Pie Bread Pudding. It’ll definitely be the next version I try. Also, this is my new favorite spot for ogling food. Added bonus for putting “swanky” in the blog name!

And finally, for anyone who’s ever had a cat that loves boxes:

Hope you have a splendid (and swanky) weekend!
