Happy Monday everyone!
Hope you all had a terrific weekend' we sure did!
I had a doctor's appointment in Hendersonville, North Carolina, which is 2 1/2 hours away, on Thursday. I was going to drive up and back by myself the same day, but Mr. Fanatic thought it would be fun to take an early weekend. Hendersonville is just south of Asheville, North Carolina, which is one of our favorite cities for a weekend visit, so I wasn't going to say no to that!
I also wasn't going to miss the chance to meet up with Anita from Far Above Rubies since she lives in western North Carolina and only a short drive from Asheville.
We met for lunch on Friday with our husbands and had a really great time. When you finally meet another blogger whom you've been following for a long time, it seems like you've been friends forever. We could have spent all day talking, especially with our husbands along.
Anita brought me a linen made from a vintage grain sack and some handmade soap from a friend's shop. How sweet was that?
After lunch, Mr. Fanatic and I walked around Waynesville. This photo was taken in a parking lot above the town. It was such a gorgeous view even though it was a cloudy day.
Downtown Waynesville is a great place for an afternoon stroll.
Of course, we couldn't help stopping in a few stores.
Mr. Fanatic really liked the coffee table.
I had to take a photo of this tablescape in the front window. I love all the warm wood tones in this shop. It has the same warm feeling as the photos of Anita's home, although her tablescapes are far more beautiful!
Before going home on Saturday, we stopped off at Screen Door in Asheville. Last time we went to the Tobacco Barn Antiques, but I wanted to get home before midnight (lol, you could spend all day in Tobacco Barn).
This lamp made from some kind of pump was just many of the upcycled items in the warehouse.
I have another appointment with the same doctor in Hendersonville next month...I hope we get to make another short getaway out of it.
Hope you did something as fun as we did this past weekend!
