I went to school at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. It’s a wonderful quirky place, especially without the students there. Here’s a great post over at Messy Nessy Chic which really hits on something special: the tiny doors of Ann Arbor. It is inspiring and makes me want to do something similar. Love this idea, and also the little free libraries.
I grew up, though, in Nashville, and have been watchign with delight as everyone else seems to be coming to the realization that it’s a pretty sweet place to visit and/or live. I was NOT happy, however, with the recent article about where to go to celebrity-sight I’m not linking to it, because you know, it encourages rudeness). I mean, that’s not how it’s *done* in Nashville, people. It’s just not done. You respect their privacy, leave them alone, and you don’t acknowledge them outside of the friendly smile and nod you give to *everyone*. SO it made me laugh when I saw this report, with some of the comments listed. It’s hysterical, and very Nashville: “The city is in shambles!”
Oh, and one more link to a writeup about the Denyse Schmidt weekend over at little pincushion studio. I had the good fortune of working next to Miss Annabel and her lovely daughter Miss Ruby. What a wonderful pair, and I loved chatting with them and the others throughout the day. The orange fabric and piecing in some of the photos is mine 🙂 and I hope to have my writeup finished soon, when tomorrow’s deadline has passed.
