GENTRY’S

Craig woke  up and said “Let’s go on a photo safari!”  I love it when he does that!      Photo safari’s are when we go “hunting” for things to take pictures of.  We hunt and then we shoot with the camera. We get the thrill of the hunt and the satisfaction of the capture AND nobody dies…

The day started with looking at the leaves of our Japanese Maple tree in our front yard.

I saw fall everywhere I looked…

SCARY

I don’t love to be scared…I don’t even like it.

 I DO love my kids and so I want to share with you some fun they’ve been having scaring people who like to be scared for fun at Millers Thrillers Haunted Woods. For more information, click on the link.

I guess porcupines like to eat bananas!  Did you click on “bananas”?  Do it–you might not want to miss it…

I am so glad that Michael and Rebekah invited me to go to the Nashville Zoo with them!  It was so much fun!

INSPIRATION

 

I found inspiration in Asheville, North Carolina.

Craig and I went to a place called Early Girl Eatery

 

DSC_0838

Oh my goodness…Buscuits with Vegetarian Herb-Cream gravy…DELICIOUS!!

DSC_0843_2

This captured Asheville for me…it just did.

After we had breakfast at Early Girl Eatery, we went exploring in the rain.  I remember Woolworth’s from when I was a kid.

 

DSC_0850

This wasn’t the Woolworth in my memory.  Look at this!  It’s an art treasure chest!  

DSC_0851

Do you see the standing rack of greeting cards right in the middle of the photo?  That’s right where I found a jewel…

 

DSC_0853

The jewel is Rhea Fitzgerald.  She is a poet, photographer, artist, teacher…

This is what was on the greeting card that I found, written by Rhea Fitzgerald.

 

I never wanted to be just a good girl. Bad girls have more adventure and more mud. 

I want to swear when I bang my thumb with a hammer and yell loud when I am angry. 

At the end of the day I want to leave a ring in the bathtub worth the trouble of drawing water- to show that I have lived in this day. 

Tired and ready for bed-a day well spent.


A girl-good and bad- worth the salt of her sweat.

 

DSC_0853_2_2_2

So I found my inspiration in Asheville.

Open up the gates to your creativity and choose to LIVE each moment, alive and muddy!

Craig and I had so much fun playing in the snow! We are at Thompson Station. Behind us, is a train track and in the distance are farms with cows.

DECORATIONS

YAY FOR CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS!!!

dsc_0300

Wreaths are pretty popular out here in Tennessee. I remember in California, you would often see maybe one wreath hanging on the front door. In Tennessee, you will often see a wreath hanging on each window! So, that’s what we decided to do this year…especially since we scored on wreaths at a great after Christmas sale at Michael’s craft store last year!

dsc_01621

This year, we hung the old fashion big color lights on our house…thank you, Craig!

dsc_02081

The city where we live always decorates for Christmas too. I love the wreaths on the telephone poles…they light up at night with white lights!

dsc_0190

This is Tucker Tree kitty…remember him? He’s the kitty we found that made his way to us via the back of an open trailer carrying trees all the way from Alabama. Yes, Tucker LOVES to tuck himself down inside the center of our wreaths and just hang out there! This was a pile of about 5 weaths that were waiting to be hung on the windows.

After some Christmas decorating, we went to downtown Franklin for lunch at Mellow Mushroom’s. This is what the street looks like in downtown Franklin…so charming.

dsc_0246

Rosanna is giving me a beautiful paper napkin sculpture she created!

dsc_0240-1

We were seated next to a glass door in Mellow Mushroom and this is the view of the “square” (that is really a circle) in Franklin. The red leaves on that tree were amazing.
