~I'm Back~Tassel Sale!~

It's good to get away, but it's even better to come back home! There is no place like home! We had a great little getaway! I always enjoy Nashville and Franklin both! Franklin is a miniature Savannah GA. I think Savannah has 26 squares, well, Franklin has 1! There is one block in Franklin that is lined on both sides with the cutest little shops. Lots of pretties! These next few pictures are of some of the shops in Down Town Franklin....Hope y'all enjoy! Yep, that's me!

Some of the shops are getting ready for Christmas, and let me tell you, now, I am in the mood!

Oh My Goodness, this eye candy was to die for!!!! I just about did too!

Don't you know, I had a near heart attack when I saw this Topiary!!!! I'm telling you, the picture doesn't do it justice! Then, I saw the $$$ and about had a stroke! It was Gorgeous!!!!!!!!! If you are brave...click on the picture to enlarge it and check out the price of this bad boy, that's all I will say about that...:)

Christmas music and Christmas trees will sure put you in the mood for the holidays!

Okay, it was really hard to tell this bamboo bench, that it couldn't come home with me! Oh, and those green pillows! I do have a love for green! I didn't even notice the beautiful iron sconces above the bench till I loaded these pictures on my computer! Aren't they beautiful....You can see the whole sconce in the picture of the Christmas tree...above!

A gorgeous stove...too pretty to cook on!

Eye candy in the window!

I heart this picture!

I could spend Days in this store!!! I loved everything in here!!!

I know you want to know about these beauties! Let me introduce you to Curious Gourmet Cupcake Cafe~ They taste as good as they look! A little pricey but worth every bite!!! You can check them out Here

We bought 4 of them...ate 2 there and took the other 2 to the boys! I can not describe the icing....other then...like nothing you've ever tasted before....even the cake is different!! If you are ever in the Nashville area you must go over to Franklin and try these cupcakes!
I think I will end it here...don't hate me over these cupcakes....LOL:)
There's is more to come from Nashville....more eye candy to come and y'all want believe the home tours I have scheduled!
I am having a tassel sale....all the tassels have been marked 30% off! This sale will end on Friday October 31, 2008. I have several more to list, but need to sell these first! Shop, Shop, Shop! Christmas will be here before you know it!
Blessings to you all, Nancy

nikkicrumpet said...

I don't know which was more mean...torturing us with the gorgeous stuff in the shop...or tormenting us with those lucious looking cupcakes!! YIKES those things looked so tasty! But I just have to ask...how much was that unbelievable topiary!!! It is so beautiful it is making my teeth ache...well that could also be the cupcakes!

Gone said...

Oh MY!!! My heart just about stopped when I enlarged the pic of the Topiary and saw the $$$$$$!!!!

Those cupcakes look sooooo good!

I'm glad you had a wonderful time!!


Tracey said...

nikkicrumpet said...

GREAT GOOGLY MOOGLY!! I think I'll just lust after the cupcakes...those I can afford lol. How come all the really gorgeous stuff is so darn expensive!!! Have a great night!

Sue said...

I just love reading your blog,your taste is impeccable.I can tell that you really enjoy doing what you do. Where do you get all those ideas?


Becky said...

That topiary is fab!!!! But a little expensive!! HA!! Girl those cupcakes look delish! Wish I had one right now or maybe two.

Dawn Marie said...

we love Nashville and are trying to get there again this fall or winter. I do remember going to franklin, but isnt there two towns with that name? I dont remember all these gorgeous shops. I did peek at the pricey topiary and while i didnt stroke out--I knew it was bad! Those cupcakes would be my best friend! I'm glad you had a great time...as for me-I'm just not feeling the Christmas mood yet despite seeing such gorgeous decorations. I think the retailers are going to try and Bedazzle us this year to try their best to get folks to spend money. Its such a dreary time for so many of us.

Southern Lady said...

Loved the tour of the Franklin shops, Nancy. My husband and I were there last spring and it's such a quaint little town.

I loved the topiary, too, but can't imagine where I'd put something like that ... can you?

I'll look forward to hearing about your trip to Nashville.
