Blogging Detour and finally, the Nashville Antique Shows!

My friend, Barbara, and I have planned for months to visit her grandson and my daughter in Nashville in February. For antique lovers, February is a big month here. The Heart of Country Show is here, as well as the Music Valley Show,and the Tailgate Antiques Show.

We think it most convenient that we have kids in college here, especially this time of year!

I love this sign from an old furniture store. I found it at the Heart of Country show one year and had to have it! It kind of says it all, doesn't it?

As sometimes happens, our plans did not go exactly according to the way we imagined. My daughter and I had to make a detour for a funeral in Dallas and have just arrived a few days later than planned to Nashville.

While we saw amazing and beautiful snow in Dallas, and enjoyed the company of sweet family and friends, and attended a very touching and meaningful funeral service, we sure are happy to be back where we started - or where we wanted to start!

I will be selling at the next Texas hill country show in Boerne, Texas, but meanwhile I LOVE a good show to browse.

Who knows, I might just find something new to start collecting!

Photos from my personal collections in my home.
