Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride …. the North Carolina version!

Quiet week this past week on the island, so I hopped in my car ( yes we do have gas here on the Georgia coast) and headed up I 95 to visit my friend Lynda who lives in Ocean Isle Beach, NC. Lynda has such a charming cottage, two little dogs and a very lively life. She’s also a brand new grandma for the third time, has two booths at antique malls in Southport and Shallotte, NC so she’s always rushing around Brunswick County attending estate sales and finding unique art and shabby beach chic “stuff”. Lynda drives like a bat out of h… a mini van that whips around the country road curves, screeching into driveways, all the while chatting about her job as the wedding planner for her beachside inn and solving the problems of the world. I realize her driving is actually like the Disney ride- Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride- and I’m just hanging on enjoying the thrill!

Enjoy these shots of the so very charming Southport, NC- a little coastal seaport town a few miles from where Lynda lives. Found some great finds for my SeaSide Sisters booth…. http://www.seasidesisterstybee.com/ so stop by soon! The top two pictures are Lynda’s home Seaboard House. That’s the Intra Coastal Waterway in the background.
