pieces of pumpkintown, sc

I need to start by bragging:
We have the best, most interesting, generous, hospitable neighbors in the world...

They took us on a grand tour of the Blue Ridge's best this weekend. Our first stop was a town called "Pumpkintown," which I thought quite fitting for an October post. We had breakfast at an old gas-station turned restaurant/grocerystore/hardwarestore/museum. It was so typically small town/Deep South-- it reminded me of my hometown. The small town/Deep South style at its best is ever unique, lively, nostalgic, and resourceful.

Parking spots aren't outlined, there is just a general, tacit "understanding" of where you can and cannot park,

Certain scenes look as if they're taking place in 1950-- with some subtle anomalies to bring you back to "now",

Traces of a previous scene melt into the surroundings everywhere you look...

We were having such fun...

And it was only breakfast-time!
More to come on our explorations of this lovely little area, filled to the brim with personality...


  1. You two look adorable and SO HAPPY.
