Fun Stuff

So I've been in the creating mood lately, especially after visiting some thrift stores this weekend. My hubby and I made a day of it, some of which I can show, but others will have to wait, because we found some goodness for Studio Calico.
Here's some of what we found:




And, I found this cool vintage record holder to make my idea book for CHA this year:

And, if that wasn't enough, we spent Saturday night celebrating our friend, Clayton's 22nd birthday. Count the candles if you don't believe me!
Here's the birthday boy! (Can you tell his idol is Tony Rice?)

Anyway, to end this everlasting post, he's in a band called 'The Farewell Drifters' and they play more contemporary bluegrass music. It has a different sound than true bluegrass. Check them out on their site, if you want, but they have older stuff on there. They'll have it updated on Wednesday when their new album comes out. Oh, and if you're in Nashville this Friday (the 19th), they have a CD release Party at Station Inn, which you can read about on their site if you're interested in going. I would so be there, but I'll be having a blast at CHA instead.
Back to the party..... In true country fashion, after eating cake and homemade ice cream, the guys headed out to the back porch to practice:

Thanks for stopping by!

i'm glad you like to go thrifting--i do to, but get migraines from all the mold. it never fails--open air markets are a life saver!

come see the new JJ challenge, i have a feeling you'll like it.

but then CHA is probably taking all your free time. i should be shopping for some really comfortable shoes, but i'm not. :)
