Our New Favorite Find & Towns We Never Heard Of

It's hot. No, not just hot, but HOT! Too hot for much picking since you can't pick in the dark, so we made a quick trip in "our own backyard" - towns we had never explored or in some cases even heard of within an hour of home. Our venture into unknown picking territory rewarded us with our new favorite find - 
this large paint by number of a pair of cockatoos in a bright green frame!

So here we were off of the interstate and less than an hour from home in Savannah, GA. 
We went to Pembroke, Daisy, Claxton, Collins, Manassas, 
Bellville & Cobbtown. Claxton was the largest town we saw and we 
certainly knew it from Claxton Fruitcake fame. 

Here are a few fun shots of picking (way) off the beaten path.

How's this for multi-tasking? Mailbox, art, birdfeeder AND For Sale sign.

Art is in the eye of the beholder. Boots, 2 painted tree trunks and Voila! Half of a man...

We loved this sign and it's message.

This was a great place for lunch in Claxton with a very clever parking sign post.

The kind of shop that we dream about.

Two beds of artificial flowers. A solution to the drought?

The final haul:
Fabulous Cockatoo Paint By Number
1970 Better Homes Holiday Cookbook
Plastic Blender Cover
The Fred Astaire Dance Book
Balloon Inflato-Pump
Hostess Anne Plastic Placecard Holders

All in all, it was a good day for the picking sisters!
