Show & Tell…the 2017 127 finale

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…

 

Ta-Da…

 

 

Only 353 days until next year…Whose in?

It’s 127 time…Show & Tell Day One

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!

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.

stay curious,

Hello Sunshine

HS 4

There is a total bliss that comes to me when I see the first batch of daffodils that show themselves at the beginning of spring…so much so I find myself greeting them with a solid and joyful Hello Sunshine!!! So on this last trip to Brimfield I realized that I have that same inclination to do so whenever I see something so cheerful and optimistic created in this fun-loving color…I mean what would ROYGBIV do without yellow…ROGBIV…I don’t think so!!!
So here is my Show and Tell of some of the cheerful treasures that crossed my path.

Have a sunshiny day!
