Shopping Bliss Part 1........

After our trip to the Flea last month, we took Teresa and Tonia to one of our favorite places, Franklin TN, to do a little (more) shopping!  Franklin  is one of the most beautiful little towns in the state and has some of the best shops and antique malls.  The historic district has some of the most gorgeous homes, but, that's a post for another day!  Here are some photos of a couple of our favorite places. I took so many photos, it's going to take a couple of posts to show you all the wonderful things we saw, so, here is part 1!

This is Rebecca's Furniture and Home Decor Shop.  Her father builds a lot of the furniture and they have a in house design business. A good friend of mine, Camille, is one of the designers here and she is fabulous!  In a previous post, I showed you pics of her wedding.   A lot of country singers shop here.  My BF happened to be in the store the same time Cheryl Crow was shopping  and Camille has helped Naomi Judd, just to do a little name dropping!
It was really crowded so I only got a few pics upstairs.

This is the antique store, Scarlett Scales.  They were written up a few years ago in Country Home magazine.
She was also in Country Living magazine as a tour guide for Franklin.
It may be tiny, but, it's fabulous!  You might want to check out her blog,

Here is a photo of one of the shops we didn't go in but I thought their window was really cute, and PINK!

Till next time.....

I went to Franklin when I was in Nashville in may and loved Scarlet Scales (or is it Scarlett?). I also went to an inspiring garden supply store.

I just love Franklin, especially the historic park! We always park at that public park and walk to the downtown area for food and house-coveting! :o) Those homes are adorable! I'd love to see the insides of them! :o)
