A little over a week ago, our friend Andrew came up from Gainesville, Florida, to perform at a experimental music fest here in Athens. He makes and performs POST-MASH-UP music under the name IRONING. Before heading back to Florida to play another show, Andrew stopped by RANCHO COCOA to meet the bunnies before we all headed off to brunch at The Grit. We couldn't get over Andrew's awesome CATS-ALL-OVER-AND-FOREVER FLEECE HOODIE...
After brunch, Missy and I headed out of town to Lexington on a whim...we heard that there was a cool NURSERY out that way and we decided to maybe try and find it. We stopped in Lexington's little downtown area and checked out their ANTIQUE MALL...
Ever since our beloved THYME AFTER THYME went out of business, we've been looking for a garden nursery that could match it's specialness, so we were excited when we finally came across GOODNESS GROWS...
An auspicious sign: I ended up WINNING this cool little CANDLE HOLDER/HURRICANE LAMP in a free drawing they were having in celebration of their spring re-opening for 2013. Yay!
