If you are reading this….I’ve just finished my coffee and I’m heading down to Nashville to go to the City Farmhouse show.

The leaves are falling and the weather is glorious and the sun is shining and I’m going to a lunch there and meeting friends….

….and…oh wait…shopping.


Does life get any better?

I know your weekend will be amazing too and here a little inspiration to start it off right.

    Love the Earl of Grantham home ... the kitchen isn't too practical but it's fun to look at. Did you know that the Earl will be starring in a Paddington Bear movie coming out this holiday season? That might be enough to hold me over till Downton starts again in January ...

    My oldest daughter and I went to the City Farmhouse on Friday, it was fabulous. I came home with a painting, a buffet and a cute set of drawers.
