Good morning! It’s 34 degrees in Nashville, but at least the skies are sunny.Another six-mile jog at marathon pace. Getting race ready!I’ve got two more super easy runs on the menu this week, and then that’s that. Let the taper crazies begin!
And speaking of crazy, check out this mailbox! It’s on Lillian St.It’s also been a while since I contributed to my street furniture photo collection, so here’s a mattress found on 14th. Surprisingly good condition, if I must say so myself.And that’s the story of Monday so far!
Stepping back in time: yesterday was full of celebrations. First, a jewelry event showing off the work of our friend Tony, whose Lock & Key necklaces, earrings, and bracelets are super cute.His collection for the show was inspired by mysterious women of the past. Each of these lovely ladies had secrets that made her extra intriguing. Tony’s pieces all feature some sort of lock and key, and he beads them by hand on an traditional loom. Pretty cool, right?I ended up buying this “Sarah Bernhardt” necklace that features Japanese beads and a pendant sourced from the Smoky Mountains.It’s a bit longer in length, which I love…and is 1) unique enough to stand out just a bit but 2) neutral enough to go with just about anything. Now I just need to start taking naps in coffins and keeping stuffed dead bats like Sarah Bernhardt apparently did… 😉(FYI, you check out more designs in the Lock & Key Etsy store!)
After handmade jewelry it was time for handmade PIE. Happy birthday to my brother, Frank! We are both getting old, but you’ll always be older than me Now that my brother AND sister AND I all live here, the whole family takes up an entire restaurant. It’s pretty awesome.Let’s end with a pro tip from my niece on how to properly eat a piece of pumpkin pie. Forks are overrated.Have a great day!
