Fun In The Sun

On Saturday, a Mercedes-Benz car show was held on the grounds of Shelton Vineyards located in Dobson, North Carolina.



Sitting in the shade and visiting with people was a popular way to pass the time between looking at beautiful cars.



I borrowed one of Mr. Mickey's hats and wore the black tank from my collection with old white jeans from Chico's. The bag is from Uno Alla Volta. The hand-painted silk shawl is by Tina Gleave at the Silk Squirrel. The flat silver trim sandals are old from DSW.


I do not usually stroll through a park when it is ninety-two degrees so getting dressed for this event was a bit of a challenge for me. I knew that if we went inside, the air conditioning would quickly become too much for me, so the shawl was a welcome addition as we were having lunch.



After looking at every car, petting every dog and visiting with lots of special car owners, we rested for a moment before starting out on our next adventure for the day.


If you grew up in America during the sixties, you probably watched The Andy Griffith Show a few times. I was born in North Carolina where Mayberry was supposed to be located. My family always felt as if this show was starring our people.



The beautiful little quaint town of Mount Airy is best known internationally as the birthplace of Andy Griffith and the inspiration for the fictional community of Mayberry on the show. 


Regarding the tone of the show, Griffith once said in a 'Today Show' interview, that despite a contemporary setting, the show attempted to emulate nostalgia. "Though it was shot in the 1960s, it had a feeling of the 1930s."















Shopping in "Mayberry"!
