Just Around the Corner...

Hi all! So here lately in NC, we have been having some wonderful pre-fall weather! Nothing like temperatures in the low 70s with a light breeze blowing! So with the weather cooling down, you know the leaves will soon be changing. One of our family traditions is to go up to the Blue Ridge Parkway and see the beautiful mountains all painted with reds, oranges and yellows! Above is a picture I took last fall at peak color time! I can't wait to get back up to the mountains in a few months and get more great shots like the one above.

Speaking of things just around the corner, an exciting 1st annual antique fair is happening Saturday in West Jefferson, NC. We are so excited to go see all the treasures we may find!! We are also not promising we won't have stuff packed and strapped to every inch of the car. We might even look like that insurance commercial with the mattresses strapped to the roof of our car lol! 

One of our favorite antique stores is also in West Jefferson and we will definitely be paying it a visit! We will share all the things we find, also all the beautiful murals throughout the town. That is one thing we love about it....the history and southern charm this mountain town still holds!

Until next time....happy antiquing!!!  -Tara
