On Wednesday, bright and early Mr. P. and I had our bags packed and headed out for a few days away. Our final destination was in TN. to visit with dear friends of ours who use to live here. The Sills family and our family go way back , a bit before our Holly and their Blake started kindergarten. They have been back in TN. over 18 years and we are still close friends. More on that part of our trip later.
We drove to Franklin, TN, because there were several shops that I follow on Face book and I wanted to visit. If you are ever close to the Nashville, TN. area, Franklin is a town you must visit. There are so many cute shops there on Main St, and surrounding areas.
Our first stop was The City Farmhouse. Oh my,,,, they had such neat primitive furniture, and accessories.
Don't you just love this old piece? It was a German potting bench
I would have loved to bring this piece home with me. Just loved it
Do you know what these buckets were used for? I don't know but they were so neat. Would look so cool with flowers planted in them. You can find The City Farmhouse on Face book.
Our next stop was a wonderful prim shop.
The couple who owned the shop was extremely nice. The day we visited they were not open as they were there painting the shop, but let us shop anyway. Wasn't that nice? Just look at the beautiful table setting. Loved the pewter and pineapples.
We left the city and rode out to the country to a shop called "Rooster Tails" They specialize in home made furniture. Such beautiful work they do there. Love the old truck they use for advertisement.
Mr. P. really enjoyed browsing in this place. I didn't purchase anything here, however Mr. P saw things he would love to make. He bought some hardware for a few ideas he has in his mind Both Rooster Tails and Bittersweet Primitives have face book pages. Check them out. They won't disappoint you.
We stayed the night there in Franklin and on Thursday morning continued on our way. In Clarksville, TN. there is a wonderful shop who also is on face book, called The Old Mercantile. It was our first stop in that town. I forgot to get a picture there but purchased a few things.
Our next stop was Primitive Friendz. Love her shop and have to visit every time we are in the area.
Just the porch makes you want to hurry inside to see what goodies await you. Around 1 o'clock we finally reached our destination. Dimple and I had gone over 14 months without visiting each other. Both of us over those months have had medical problems and although we talked on the phone seeing each other in person was well overdue.
Don't you just love it when you have a friend who you may not see for a long time, however once you do get together it seems like yesterday that you saw her. We just picked up where we left off. They are so gracious and make you feel right at home. She and I share the same love of prims and crafting and visiting her house is like going to a prim shop.
Well I don't want to overstay my welcome with all of you as it's been such a long time since we talked. But I have so much more to share with you and will do that later in the week and share a few of my goodies with you.
Hope your week has started out great. We will talk later in the week,,,, a promise.
Until next time....
