Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

Deer outside the library window

I come home sometimes with deer on all sides of the house.

Some of them watch me get out of the car and go inside. 

Now I have one of the fawns who likes to sit just outside the library window.

I suspect they are also eating some of the leftovers I leave for the raccoons and possums. 


  1. I am sure they feel the love from inside the cabin they like to lay close to.
    I feed birds, squirrels, rabbits and a ground hog and I live in town, my property backs up to an interstate highway and I get wild critters

  2. Merry Primitive Christmas to you Marshel! So sweet of you to think of me during your stay in MS.
    Lucky you, about the auctions, keep an eye out for me for matching oval frames! I just can't find them here in Missouri! Thanks so much and may you have a blessed New Year!
