Sometimes I long for the mountains. 
Joe and I were in the north Georgia mountains last fall and we stayed in an old farmhouse B&B. 
 The porch.

The mantlepiece.

A quilt hanging in the dining room.

Fall leaves, the colors of the leaves make me want to pack an overnight bag.
Could I talk Joe into a little trip?

Linking with Debra at Common Ground for  Vintage Inspiration Friday.

may joy and peace surround you



  1. Oh Olive, I always long for the mountains too. What a farmhouse B&B, what a treat to stay in such a quaint and charming home! I hope you can talk Joe into another little trip, why not??

    Love your blog, Miss Olive!


  2. Looks like a beautiful place, Olive.


  3. How pretty! It looks very peaceful! Thank you for linking it to Home Sweet Home!

  4. Looks like a perfect place for a lazy weekend. I love the picture of the leaves.

  5. Hi Olive! I've been feeling this way too! I want to experience the mountains in every season. And Fall is so fine! I hope you get to go!

  6. Cough, cough (clearing meow throat)...and um, what did Clovis do while you were gone?! Hmmm? You left him at home didn't mew?? Oh, the horror. I shall have to send the poor thing a sympathy card indeed. I mean how could you not have taken him?!? At least you did take nice pictures to share with him. You did show him the pictures didn't mew?!? WHAT?! Sheesh! Now I am going to have to send him a sympathy card and some treats! Poor Clovis, probably feeling most neglected about now..... I'm there for you buddy!



  7. Love the quilt - such peaceful colors...

  8. Olive,
    I remember when you and Joe took that trip! And I'll just bet you can talk him into another one!
    B&B stays are so lovely and romantic.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. A trip to the mountains sounds nice. I love the rockers on that front porch...I could sit there all day! Hope you get to go!

  10. Sounds like a great place for a little R & R!!

  11. Your trip last fall sounds wonderful! We really wanted to take a fall trip to the mountains this year, but couldn't get our schedules to cooperate :( We stayed at a B&B in Brevard, NC. It was so gorgeous!

  12. Your trip last Fall looks and sounds lovely. The porch with the rockers look so inviting!

    Thanks for sharing your Fall memory at Potpourri Friday!

  13. Such a beautiful place for you to stay. I actually remember when you made that visit! It really does look like just the sort of place I would love to stay in. (Hope you can talk Joe into taking another little trip!).

  14. Have you managed to talk Joe into a trip yet this place looks delightful.


I adore your comments. They are like finding unexpected chocolates. olive
