Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!
Last Friday, I took a little day-trip to the lovely city of Nashville, Tennessee to see the Italian Style exhibit at the Frist, eat at an all-gluten-free restaurant, and shop the local vintage scene. Despite the hot and humid weather (welcome to the South *wink*), the family and I had a magnificent time–such a magnificent time that I just had to share a little bit of the adventure with y’all! So, slip on your cowboy boots, y’all, because this is a Nashville edition of VIP Scrapbook *wink*
WOWZA! The inside of The Frist was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I felt like I was back at Biltmore–wandering the halls, distracted by the exquisite architecture.
Those ceilings > all other ceilings.
Check out those mouldings! AND–they’re metallic. I am in love *wink*
The ceilings in the stairwell at The Frist. Totally feeling inspired now–someone get me some silver and black paint and a paint brush! And…probably some painters tape. *wink*
This amazing sculpture in front of The Frist is from the Jaume Plensa Human Landscape exhibit on display now.
View from the top of the stairs at The Frist. Look at that architecture, y’all! Kind of makes me want to move to Nashville…but I think New Orleans has my heart *wink* Too bad I cannot make NOLA in a day-trip *sad face*
*PAUSE* Let me take a #selfie.
OMG. Look at this menu–I could eat ANYTHING from it I wanted! Oh…what a relaxing feeling! Although I do not talk about it often, I have Celiac disease and traveling with it really…well..stinks. Whereas most people can stop at any restaurant they please without worry, my life isn’t that simple *wink* There is SO much research involved to find out where I can and cannot eat when traveling, but thanks to my mom, we were able to eat at the all-gluten-free eatery, Amot, in Nashville. Whether you have Celiac or not–the food at Amot is to-die-for! I give Amot 5 stars, 2 thumbs up, and a VIP happy dance *wink*
Grilled cheese for days. Kind of makes your mouth water…doesn’t it *wink*
I like to be silly sometimes…okay–all of the time *wink* What do y’all think of these vintage specs I tried on at the Hip Zipper? Bless, my mom is not a photographer *wink*
VINTAGE GOODIES! Woop! Woop! Stay tuned to the blog later this week to see ONE–and only one–of my new vintage (accidental oxymoron? *wink*) pieces. Y’all will have to stay tuned to see the rest!
