Now mind you when I went to Tennessee it was not all fun and games with the grandkids. I love traveling out to this area as there is such beautiful scenery as well as wonderful buys.
I wanted to do a little antiquing when I went and we were able to get a bit in. Vincent and I had full intentions of going back to one venue on our own yet since we were called home early we missed out. I did manage to pick up a couple items while I was out. I love candle stick holders especially silver ones. I found this one downtown in a little shop and had to have it.
The other item I found was this adorable spoon necklace. A little demitasse spoon with a delicate flower at its end sculpted into a necklace. I would have loved to have found earings to match yet I was out of luck on that one.
When we went to the Pumpkin Patch I had to pick up my annual Tennesse Pumpkin. I choose a variety of smaller ones and also a few gourds to dry and use later. Little ears of popping corn were also purchased as I thought they would make a cute addition to my array.
I also picked this thing up. I will be honest and say that at the first I thought it was a huge gourd yet the more I look at it I am not sure. It would be wonderful if it is as can you imagine the orny I could make out of this one. It is about 14 inches wide and about 20 inches high. My grandkids want me to make a snowman out of it. Little do they know I do not have the talent to paint such things. We will see what comes of it. I will keep you posted.
I also went to a pumpkin patch near me when I returned home in hopes of finding my big pumpkin. Once again I was disappointed and wished I had purchased in Tennessee. Their prices are so much better and their variety is much wider. I am learning...
I am beginning to think that even after my daughter and her family are stationed elsewhere, I still may have to venture out to Tennessee once a year or so. A wonderful state with so much beauty.
