Southern Exposure

Here are a few of my favorite southern things, collected over the years.

This map is from the fifties It was lettered by hand and drawn by hand. I like that!

I love the colors on this old map of Florida, and how isolated and deserted the Everglades were when it was printed, which was around the turn of the century.

another great old black and white map

and another one with beautiful colors. It says Indian Territory just above Texas on the left.

I went to a great wedding at the historic Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee.

And Kentucky was my home for two years. I was fortunate to live in a beautiful historic italianate mansion near the river. And though sadly much of the stereotyping about Kentucky is reality, I do miss my old Kentucky home.

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My usual interests are cooking, wine, horticulture, art, and old books, but lately I've been obsessed with saving for a piece of land, so I can practice sustainability and learn to live as close to the land as possible, and then help others to do the same. To relax I listen to Dharma talks. Namaste!
