For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

A quick visit to Savannah, Georgia:)

Our first stop on the way to PA was in Richmand Hill (I think, lol). When we woke the next morning, I found that it was only about 15 miles to Savannah so I talked Pat into visiting there so we could incorporate some sight seeing while on our journey up the coast to PA. I had never been to Savannah, but immediately recognized the spanish moss, I'd seen when I visited New Orleans years ago.

Since our time was short, we decided to take a "quick tour" via an Old Town Trolley. We took the "express" trip which meant no on/off priveleges, but were able to see most of Historic Savannah in 1 1/2 hrs:) The photo above is from River Road. This is a really cool area (down by the river, of course) where there are lots of shopping opportunities as well as taverns and restaurants...as the trolley guide said..."Eat, drink and shop".

I thought it was really interesting to find out how much this area reminded me of New Orleans. In my opinion, the architecture was very similar...lots of wood, brick, and fancy black wrought iron. I LOVE architecture and this area was amazing!


For those of you who may not know, I have an OBSESSION with doors! There you have it, yet ANOTHER "weird" Lori-ism. I took alot of "door" pics, but since they were all from a moving trolley, most were blurry. Here is one of a church door that I thought was cool:)
Well, now we're off to visit my sister in Raleigh, NC. While in Florida, I was reading a magazine that had many top 10 lists in the south east U.S. including the top 10 gardens. Lucky for us, one of them is in Durham where my sister lives (and my pink haired most favorite niece). We plan to visit the Duke Gardens tomorrow. More pics of that to follow...
Enjoy:)
