country music fest nashville*

img_0164We were honored to be chosen to exhibit at this years Country Music Fest in Nashville, also known as the CMA Fest. Our booth was located at the Fan-X experience where you could come have a meet & greet with your favorite country music singers.

We had a lot of fun meeting people from all over the country and the world who attend the festival. This is our third year exhibiting so we have a lot of customers who come see us year after year…and have become addicted to Island Cowgirl.

We brought a small selection of work from other Nashville artists that we carry in the store…My favorite being the “Shit Creek Survivor” sign.

A big thanks to my husband who was my Sherpa and set the booth up for the show…and my mother-in-law who is the Varage Ninja and found this great chandelier for the booth. It added a little extra bohemian flair.

end of summer*

We keep her mane braided all summer to give her some relief from the heat…and what a mane she has. It seems to have grown even longer this summer and is well past her shoulders now.  She looks so darn cute with her crazy hair down again. Even Sundance thinks so as he gives her a snuggle. #gypsylove

ode to music city*

We moved to Nashville three years ago from California on a wing and a prayer. And with a house, a horse, a dog, a store, a studio, two storage units and three vintage cars. But a wing and a prayer sounded much more romantical. We were in search of a simpler life and some much needed elbow room.

As you know Nashville is all about the live music. It fills the streets…it’s the first thing you hear when you land in the airport. We even have live music at the grocery store.

Our Guitar Necklace is our ode to the spirit of love and music we have found in Nashville.

Happy Spring! Libby says don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers…(just don’t get them all over your nose like she does)…

If you didn’t already know…we picked up and moved to Nashville from California a few months ago.The reasons were plenty…but mostly we wanted a simpler life, greener pastures and to be closer to family. Continue reading
