We’re Village people now

Marathon Village in Nashville, Tenn.
We spent some time at Marathon Village during our Nashville Trip. I am still in awe of this grand old building. Very industrial, very cool, very textural and delightful — especially for camera-toting creative types! The buildings house shops, studios, offices and even a fitness center nowadays. In it's prime (1907-1914), Marathon Village was home to the Marathon Motor Car Company. Continue Reading

Exploring Antique Archaeology in Nashville

I hope your day is filled with love, laughter and a little bit of intrigue!     Continue Reading

Feed Mills, Three French Hens and Mt. Richmore

I find it both ironic and hilarious that after arriving at my sister's house in a Nashville suburb, we loaded into a vehicle and traveled in the opposite direction of Music City.

They had homemade breads, cinnamon rolls, 'the world's best chicken salad' and of all ... Continue Reading

Taking the crazy train to Nashville

Guess what I HERD this morning ... Seems there's some solar storm shooting toward earth. It could cause disruptions in GPS systems and power grids. Seeing as how (I hate that phrase, but it seemed to fit) the hubby and I recently watched War of the Worlds, I want to tell you this: If I get stranded somewhere between the Ohio Valley and Nashville this weekend because giant alien robots start blitzing the earth, I promise to blog about the experience for as long as humanly possible. So ... Continue Reading
