Going back to High Point Market!

Antiques Shopping in Nashville

I love getting out in other cities to browse their antiques stores, so when I had the chance to do that in Nashville recently, I was happy to find a new spot to look at vintage goodies.  Shopping antiques markets and thrift stores has been on my radar for a long time now and I still enjoy browsing and seeing the possibilities in using older pieces in my home.  I'm definitely not all about just new … [Read more...]

Browsing in Franklin, TN

While in Nashville last weekend, I was actually staying in Frankin, that cute little Southern town that always captures my heart. The first time I went there, I just loved the quaintness of the main street with shops and restaurants, old style theater, beautiful old churches everywhere and the overall small town feel that is Franklin.  It's sort of Mayberry comes to life and I always love going … [Read more...]

Parker’s Third Birthday in New Orleans

It's been a whirlwind time lately of traveling and doing all sorts of fun things and at the top of the list was a couple of weekends ago when my family (my sister and brother-in-law) and I headed down to New Orleans to celebrate Parker's 3rd birthday.  She is finally getting to the age that she is understanding birthdays and all the festiveness that goes with that event in  life and she had a … [Read more...]

Spending a Morning with Chip and Joanna Gaines

It's not every day that I get to do something as exciting as what happened last week, namely spending a few hours with HGTV celebrities, Chip and Joanna Gaines of Magnolia Market and the Silos.  What a surreal moment in time and an absolutely fascinating time getting to see them up close and personal.  Definitely a bloggy highlight for me! I was invited by Kilz to a media event and one in which … [Read more...]
