Field Trip: Southern Accents in Cullman, Alabama

My husband and I went to Cullman this week and visited Southern Accents. We had a wonderful time looking at all the architectural antiques and goodies. Anything you could possibly want for your house and garden you can find at Southern Accents!

While there, we met the adorable Lucy.  She was so helpful, and she is also a fellow blogger! Her blog is called Lucy's Inspired.  You can see it here.

I did take several pictures at Southern Accents:




I love the colors in this stained-glass window:


Their hardware selection is incredible:



I got a crick in my neck after looking at all the beautiful antique chandeliers and light fixtures:


I enjoyed seeing art pieces and picture frames made from salvaged wood and other found pieces:


The store's window display is so cute because it is loaded with green for St. Patrick's Day!



Check out these chippy white corbels:




We did some buying, too.  Can you guess what we bought?

Until next time...

Hey Ricki Jill, I can guess, and I can't wait to see what you do with. I could spend a "bank roll" at The Southern Accents". I'm going over to meet your blog buddy,Lucy.

Beth said...

Wow...I'm not an antiquey kind of person, but so many of those just scream 'home accent decor' and 'fun craft projects' to me. :D What did you get??

Hi Ricki, what a great place, I could get lost in there. I especially love that cross, just beautiful! Just joined as a follower!

Fun things! Isn't that chandelier gorgeous...if only I had the hosue for something like that! It looks as if you must have had a great day!

Willow said...

WOW. I wished we had a store like that here. Maybe we do and I need to find it. I love glass doorknobs. They are just so romantic I think.

Here in Houston we have a similar goldmine of a place: Atkins Antiques and Architectural Salvage. I could stay there all day!!

Thank you for visiting my blog and for the sweet comment about my master bedroom.

It is so nice to get positive feedback on a project you have worked so hard on.

Lovely blog! I will be back.

Oh how I would love to have a shop like this near me. Although I am not sure that I would display much self-control. You bought the corbels, right???

Mallory said...

Ooh aah! :) Can't wait to see what you got!

Lois Evensen said...

What a really cool place! The crystal chandelier is similar to the one in our main staircase. We just love it!

Lucy said...

I could spill the beans and tell what you bought!!! I so enjoyed meeting you and your husband. It's so cool to work there and help people find their perfect treasure! Thanks for the sweet comments!

I LOVE Southern Accents! Waving from a fellow Alabama gal! :)

Linda said...

This stuff is so interesting to me. I love browsing through old things. Period.
Hope you like the paint brush organizer you bought from my sister. I think they were well made. Anyway, i hope you like it. Best wishes. Linda

What a fun place to visit, wish I lived a little closer.

I'm sure you had a great time with your husband while visiting the antique store. Such moments are priceless!

I have a heart from antique stuff too. My father and I shared same interest and fascination on well preserve antique pieces.

Among the pieces you have shown I love the wooden balusters, the posh chandeliers, and the wooden cross with butterfly (I love butterflies. They are meaningful to me).

Thank you for sharing and I'm wishing you more happy moments with your family! :)
