Day Three…Frankfort, KY to College Hill, OH ( and then back to ATL)
Bring on the day…
Today was a first….we made it to Ohio! What will 2018 bring? Michigan perhaps?
Although I absolutely love the treasure hunting, the scenic road trip and of course the pancake dinners at Cracker Barrel what I love, love, love the most are the amazing, kind and interesting people I meet along the way. This year we ended the trip in College Hill, Ohio and met such a wonderful, spirited, joyful group of people from Serve NCH doing great things not only for their immediate community but also the greater community by collecting medicine bottle for Doctors Without Borders. Good vibes…
Only 353 days until next year…Whose in?
And the epic adventure continues…
Day Two…Crossville, TN to Frankfort, KY
First stop of the day was a good one…
I Love Love!
An all time favorite stop…what will a girl find?
Glassware is what a girl will find…
Check in tomorrow for the third and final day of the 2017 127 Adventure.
Can you believe it…it’s that time of year again. The days are long, the weather is warm and the 127 is on!
If you aren’t familiar with what the 127 is I will quickly get you up to speed…it is the World’s Longest Yard Sale! Yes you heard it right…it is held the first week of August , it’s on rural route 127, it runs from Alabama through Michigan and it’s 690 miles long!
Whenever I share my enthusiasm of this epic adventure I get one of the following two responses…Oh wow that sounds AMAZING, what’s it like? or eww! I get more wows that ewws but I get it, treasure hunting isn’t for everyone! So for those who are curious instead of a photo recap of this year’s trip I decided to do my 127 Show & Tell video style…
One rental mini van, three days, four states and 961 miles and this is how it went down…
Day One…Signal Mountain, TN to Crossville, TN
Check out tomorrow for day two’s clips from the road!
Take the wonderful practice of yoga, the joy and happiness factor of goats and a solid dash of magical mother nature and what do you get…an incredibly amazing inner peace zen moment..that’s right yoga with goats!
Tonight I had the privilege of attending a GOGA class at the Atlantis Dream Farm in Milton, Georgia. If you live in the ATL area or ever find yourself visiting it is a total MUST!!!
Goat Girl Forever,
Sliding in the with just a few hours to spare this month is July’s Taking it to the Streets MuuMuu of the Month!
Straight from the streets of ATL…really straight from the trails of the ATL BeltLine.
A bike, a muumuu and some public art is all a girl really needs on an amazing summer day!

Often the question comes up of how and where do I get inspired from a design perspective…
For me it’s simply that I get out there with me eyes wide open no matter where I am with ferocious curiosity. I look up, look down, open doors, ask questions and go into corner’s (you never know what you might miss otherwise) of wherever my adventure might take me. Those adventures are sometimes a hike out in the wonderful world of Mother Nature, exploring a city and all it has to offer, rummaging through a flea market or in this case an amazing visit to Palm Springs.
Palm Springs for me was an EPIC ULTRA hotbed for all things design and inspiration…here is my Show & Tell.
It’s the absolute best day the year…the first day of Summer!
No better way to start the Summer celebration than with a Palm Springs MuuMuu Memory….this is living my friends!!!
Mirror mirror on the wall…oops I mean mirror mirror on the entire house inside and out. True fact and not a typo!
Art is alive in the desert and man do I love art that invites you to participate in all its glory and splendor. Entering this reflective ranch was as if I was dropped into a gigantic kaleidoscope…magical!
This architectural installation, Mirage, by Doug Aitken was part of the Desert X Exhibition and will remains until October 31st, 2017. A for sure must see if you find yourself anywhere near the Palm Springs area.
Check out the below link for more about Mirage.
So there…April showers totally delivered on May flowers in more ways than one!!!
Not only did these happy California poppies come out and play so did this fantastic vintage Lilly Pulitzer floral frock.
I’m a pirate and I know it!
