I’m getting spoiled. Bella Rustica’s founder Linda graciously put me up in her own home for a couple nights and my oh my that’s a post in itself. You just wait and see what this girl can do with her junk! Coming soon.
The first stop today was stopping in at Agape’s headquarters where Linda works. They took me out for lunch at this very cool rustic place.
I actually had soup and cornbread and my newest addiction sweet tea, but were all the lunches amazing.
Next stop? Dear driver Linda, please take me to my buddy’s place.
We drove out to Hello Boys and finally meet Gavin! I was so bummed that Jeremy wasn’t in the house darn it darn it darn it!
I got to know these amazing fellas through Folk magazine and have been amazed at their talents. They just opened up a men’s vintage clothing store and I HAD to see it for myself. And them!
I tried to hide behind big fat hollywood sunglasses and a cowboy hat walking in, but bust up when I couldn’t swing a decent southern accent.
I love their up cycled fixtures for this and that. It’s a fabulous store right in the heart of Nashville.
And yeah, Gavin was as sweet and good lookin’ as the picture tells you.
But it was onto a market stop next. We filled up the vehicle with amazing and unusual pumpkins for Bella. Here they stack them and use a spray sealer for show. I have never seen so many different pumpkin varieties before. The really crumply one is called a peanut pumpkin. They were so cool.
And then it was a drive through NashVegas as they call it. So fun!
No time to stop, so I just kicked up the shutter on the camera and clicked a few while we whizzed by. Beautiful architecture and fabulously fun signs!
We had to really move because we needed to load up with some junk for my workshops from Three French Hens. Whooohooo was this fun! Amazing picking to be had at this hen house!
But two junkers’ gotta eat. So we stopped in at…
Uncle Bud’s Catfish Shack. Oh my was all this delish!
And more junk!
This here girl is taking good care of me. Thank-you for the amazing day, Linda!
Next? We’re heading to the country to the Bella barn tomorrow to break out the hay. Literally. Stay tuned! Cross your fingers the wifi will work…
