Time Traveling and Tomatoes...a Daytrip Downtown

Last week we said goodbye to these two handsome fellas as they headed off to Kids Camp for 3 days. It was Aidan's first time to go and he was so stinkin excited. I'm so blessed to have a husband that would volunteer to go along and endure the 180 Heat Index and a cabin full of 2nd and 3rd grade boys. God bless him.

That left me here alone with (enough pubescent hormones to last me a lifetime) Maggie and Tyler.

We decided to join my sister downtown and check out a little shop on 8th Ave called "Pre to Post Modern".

If you are ever in Nashville you must check this store out. They have some really neat vintage furniture and such. If nothing else you will be taken back to a much simpler time in your life when Smurfs sheets graced your bed and you carried your lunch in a Strawberry Shortcake lunchbox.

Tyler said he felt like he was in an episode of "I Love Lucy". Avocado ashtrays and all.

I am kicking myself for not getting this cabinet. I fell in love. It was from the Nuclear plant in East TN. It's an old "lab" cabinet. Would look fabulous in our new school room.

This chair reminded me of my Grandpa Sammy for some reason. Seems like he had a chair once similar to this...or maybe it was a chair at his Barber Shop. It was screaming for a grandpa to sit in it.

I never had Skipper. Just her scantily dressed big sister.

There was also a section in the store devoted entirely to fashion. If that's what you want to call it. I call it itchy Polyester land. I now know why streaking was once so popular...poor people couldn't stand the feel of their own clothing.

Can't help but think you would rock this dress Edie.

Maggie and I had a little Polyester fun of our own. My sister said I should have worn that for my husband's homecoming. It was oozing "romance" apparently. Only if polyester induced hives are your thing.

Maggie fell in love with this apron. So did I. So I let her get it.

We also got the colorful dishes up above as well. They are Yugoslavian cookware. Like little colorful skillets. They will be put to more practical use in my kitchen. Hanging on the walls.

After the vintage shopping we headed to Farmers Market...one of my absolute favorite things to do. I just love all of the different textures, colors, and smells. It's like sensory overload. Plus food is one of my favorite things to shoot. It is just so darn easy to get along with. No whining. No squinting in the sun. No need to bribe or threaten. It just sits there looking glorious for you.

Yep, our day downtown was just peachy. I heart summer.
