Uncommon Ground and The Creative Village Artist Studio and Group

Image
Historic Old Hickory Tn. Home of the world's largest  gunpowder plant built in 1918 during the Great War. There were enough housing for 35,000 people and more  than 3,800 buildings built. But at the end of the war Old Hickory was almost a ghost town. A lot of buildings still stand today. A lot of the original homes still stand. And in recent years Old Hickory is changing. There seems to be a younger group moving in, new business' are opening and life is trying to make a comeback in the small town of Old Hickory. The Uncommon Ground is cute little coffee shop that opened a few years ago in the village of Old Hickory. Across the street from that is the local art store, the Creative Village Artist Studio where you can find some really neat, handcrafted arts from local artist. A couple of weeks ago the Creative Village Artist Group and the Uncommon Ground came together to help support the local Outreach Program for that area by hosting a sale. Local artist were called tog…

Welding....OH YEAH

Image
For several years now I have wanted to learn to weld. Yep, you read it right. My BF Chris showed me a few weeks ago how it is done then Sunday he let me loose in the garage with this piece. Hey Mark (my brother) this is a piece you found years ago that I took home and it has been in one flowerbed after another all this time.... The issue with this piece is I had to either bury the bottom in the ground or place a heavy rock on it so that it would remain standing since the side that extends outward makes it heavy on the end...yep, it would tip over a lot of the time. My idea was to have a piece come up from the center which would also go down in the ground like a spike. The piece I added is taller also and I have had several parts like you see here already. Going to be awesome with a vine growing up it. Sorry for the teaser here but I don't have a pic of it finished yet! I really want to put it in the ground to take that pic and I have not gotten there yet! But I need to sho…

In the Pasture

Image
Saturday I went into the pasture and called for Misfire.... she must be getting used to me now cause she came to me when I called. She is not crazy about the pigs, I have seen her chase Razor twice but she seems to want to check Dakota out. Hanging with Misfire Not sure about that look!
She is so pretty.
Check out this pretty girl. Horses come and go at Chris' cause Ronnie rents the barn and he brings them there for training. This girl is just about done with her training. She is due to move back home at the end of the month.

She really wants in the pasture with the other horses.

Misfire

Image
Isn't she so pretty? This is Misfire, she is about 21 yrs old. My brother bought Misfire for my sis in law, Lori about 15 yrs ago. She lived with Jack who recently passed a month or so ago. But she also lived with Peanut, a minature pony that "ran away"! Sorry could not locate a pic of Peanut. But....Peanut would get out and go down the street to this girls house. The girl was about 14 or 15 and she would love on Peanut and brush him. Every chance Peanut got, off he went. My sis in law, knowing how much the girl loved Peanut....so she  gave Peanut to the girl! That left Jack and Misfire until Jack was gone. The worry was Misfire being alone. One day while talking to Lori about where Chris (my BF) lived Lori realized that Chris' place is where Misfire came from. Yes, when they bought her, they bought her from Chris' dad. Wow....how funny.
Chris does not manage his barn. He rents it out and Ronnie manages it with his horses and he trains others. I mentioned t…

Let's go back...way back... I was in the 8th grade, what 14 or so and I met Julie. We became to best of friends that year which was the one and only year we went to school together being that we lived on different sides of town. Wow...that has been ___ many years. LOL It has actually been 40 years ago. Thanks to Julie I met Roger, her soon to be hubby when we were about 18. Now let's jump 35 years into today! Yes, 35 years ago I remember where I was.... Julie and Roger got married. Happy Anniversary! They look so YOUNG! But then again so do the rest of us!
Can't name everyone in the wedding party, I really have trouble remembering back that FAR! But the ladies I can tell you some of them. That would be me standing to the left of Julie. Wow....been so long since I saw that color on my head! I was the Maiden of Honor. Next to me was Julie's sis in law at the time, and next to her was her sister Laurie, on the other side the blonde was also a sis in law.
Now to t…
