Sharon and I headed out last Thursday afternoon bound for Nashville, home of Country Music and the Vintage Market…We had been planning to go to this event since we first learned of it months ago…and lucky me won 2 tickets from the most awesome Theresa at Time Worn Interiors. Her booth was total eye candy! Beautiful!
Pictures? You want pictures? Well, I got a little story about that….we got into the door of the show, I whip out my new and improved camera with the 30x zoom…bring it up to eye level…turn it on….and BAM! Dead batteries! I could have seriously bawled my eyes out! So you will just have to visit Theresa’s blog and see the photos she took! It was truly a great show!
We saw Molly of Barn Trash who we met at The Country Living Fair in Atlanta. She is just awesome! A hoot! Loved seeing her and her sweet husband and their adorable baby girl…I borrowed these photos of their awesome talent from their facebook page…
We met Sue Whitney of Junk Market Style fame, and she was also totally awesome! SO NICE!!! I had one of her books, and bought the other one….love her! Love her books! She is brilliant!
After we left the Vintage Marketplace we decide to go to Franklin, TN, which if you have never been, is AWESOME as well! It was 40 minutes from where we were to where we were going and thank God for the TomTom. Sharon was telling me where to be and what lane to be in and when to turn and it was a zillion lanes of traffic and we were all going 100 mph with lanes merging in on all sides. I was a HOT mess! Some guy in a Nissan was trying to merge over and I had nowhere to go and he was MOST distressed with me! After he got over I could just see his mouth going in his side mirror…I started laughing and he gave us the bird! Like, not a small bird…not a little flip off….noooooooo… He stuck his arm out the window and up in the air as far as he could and gave us a big old gesture! I laughed harder and he shot us another one! Sharon looked at me and said, “I don’t think anyone has ever shot me a bird before on the highway.” I said, “Really??? Happens to me all the time"!” LOL
We did make it to Franklin unscathed and had a blast there. There are blocks and blocks of wonderful shops! We are planning a trip back there because we did not get to see a fraction of what we wanted to.
A few shots of some things I got….you know me and the “smalls”….
this bundle of letters….
some dominos…and the little red game pieces…got these from Theresa…
I got the key holder from Theresa too…leathery and worn…love it!
I have more….I just have to take photos….
ALSO….before I sign off….I am a BAD blogger!! BAD! Kathy from Creative Home Expressions sent me these adorable Fitz and Floyd creamer and sugar rabbits….just because she is SO sweet like that…she knows about my love of “the rabbit”…
Aren’t they adorable! I have them in the cabinet in my kitchen so I can look at, admire, and think about the wonderful blog friends I have….Thank you so much Kathy!!
…looking up there at that last photo makes me think….I need to paint that shelf!
It truly is a sickness….
Thank you for stopping by!
