It's a Swamp Thing...

See this couple...this intelligent, witty, couple is Alex and Angela McRae....you may know them..Alex writes for "The Newnan Times Herald", and Angela is Editor of the "Newnan Coweta Magazine"....she also wrote a book called "Dainty Dinning" because she knows all things related to tea...I'm not even joking...see her blog link a little lower on my page....There is something I know about this couple that you may not know...keep reading....

This is Angela's book, it contains vintage recipes, memories, and memorabilia from America's department store tea rooms....I sell the book here at the shop, as a matter of fact I just wrapped one up for a customer before I started writing on the blog today....Angela is my good friend and she reminds me of the cover of the book..."pink"....yet.....
You know all that really good looking painted furniture in my store? Well, a lot of that furniture is because of this man...Tony Brown...and you what they say...behind every great man is an even greater woman....enter his wife, Frances....they look like a sweet, normal looking couple too, don't they? Keep going....
This is the Jambalaya I made last night because Scott and I, along with The McRaes and The Browns had a special party last night....don't let that "Dainty Dinning" fool you with Angela, or that "Yes Ma'am, No Ma'am" exterior you get from Tony all the time...we all love to watch "Swamp People!" That's right! And, the premiere was last night....everybody yell "Choot, em Elizabet!"


Okay, Now let's talk about Valentines Day! Here at Cydney's Alley we have some really cute signs and pillows for Valentines Day, or really any day of the week....If you haven't been married that long....this might be the sign for you....

After you've been married a few years, your man will come to understand....and if he doesn't, slip these two pillows on your bed and he will definitely get the message....


In the end, this little sign sums it up pretty good...

Speaking of Valentines....this is an old picture of my Mom and Dad....Jack and Shannon Alley...lovely isn't it?
Look at this really cool Sears, Roebuck and Co catalog....1940-1941

Oh to just sit and look at this is Devinne! Hats and gloves that are "certain to charm"...all for .69c and up ...if only...
more catalog pictures...

Bicycle Planter will get you in the mood for spring to hurry on up!

Great four seater Farm Table!

I have this whole uniform....it's a vintage Masonic uniform from the 1800's ....but the belt alone! Wow!

The hat is so...."Johnny Depp" don't you think?

You can just never have too many bookshelves can you?

Oh behave baby!

Bronze bust is very cool...


Unique Folk art and coffee table cart.....
