More from Marcy Jo's Mealhouse - Pottsville, TN


Back in January, I posted about My First Trip to Marcy Jo's Mealhouse in Pottsville, TN, an absolutely fantastic little "country eatin' spot" in Pottsville, Tennessee - just outside of Nashville...  












Today I'm bringing you a few more photos from that day at Marcy Jo's... These were taken during a December visit to Nashville, so while the decor shown reflects our recent temperatures, it does not reflect our current season...

My First Trip to Marcy Jo's Mealhouse in Pottsville, TN


When this place came into view, I simply shrieked! I had looked it up online and Evan had gone on and on about it - so I "knew" what to expect, but seeing it live and in person was just fantastic!  



It's just about the most quaint and welcoming little place you will ever see... and it is LITTLE! If you blink, you'll miss it - so whatever you do,
DON'T BLINK!  
When we walked in, I gasped so loud people turned to look...  The screen door sounds just like your granny's did and the old wooden floors greet your tootsies with old timey warmth upon entering... 

The photo below shows the view from the front door... Will you just take a look at this beautifully fantastical little world full of eye candy... 

The shot below was taken from the balcony area, which houses Sugar Plum Lane - owned by Laura Ring - in this area many local artisans display their wares...



The food was amazing... Good home cooking... I had eggs, bacon, fried potatoes and wheat toast (homemade bread) - 

We were there just a few days before Christmas and
Marcy Jo's Mealhouse & Bakery on Urbanspoonthere wasn't a large crowd, but they were out of their famous cookbooks (( :^(  ))  If you're in the neighborhood, this is a MUST TRY!   You'll find it in Columbia / Pottsville, TN - not too terribly far from Nashville and WELL worth the drive...

See the links below for more...

My First Trip to Arnold's Meat & 3 - Nashville, TN


On a recent trip to Nashville, Evan insisted that we try to have lunch at Arnold's before leaving town... 




Arnold's Country Kitchen on Urbanspoon
As we arrived I couldn't help but notice that there was a line out the door and nearly to the street.  You'll forgive me for not having a photo of that, I was busy spewing curse words and insisting that this food could not possibly be worth this line, especially on the last day of the trip when I was starting to become anxious to be back in my "bubble of home"...

As it turned out, I was as wrong as wrong can be my friends... 

Not only is it worth standing in line, it's worth the drive to Nashville if you're in that region of the country... You MUST check the hours first though, they're not open on weekends - Phenomenal food, absolutely the best Turnip Greens I have ever eaten, an interesting atmosphere and an overall great experience....


Below is a video I was able to find online to give us a little more background on the place .... enjoy!

I Heart Vintage Signage...


I LOVE LOVE LOVE vintage signs of all kinds.  I love the imagery, I love the colors, I love the fact that droves and droves of people over several decades have walked under those signs for a bite to eat ... each of those people with their own story and own life... I have no idea why my mind operates in such a vintage, nostalgic fashion... but I'm glad it does... 




I've designed a bit of merchandise from the Rotier's photo ... View the Rotier's Photo and others at KCoJax.SmugMug.com by clicking here....  Get it in the form of a magnet! - 
Put the Rotier's photo on your fridge, filing cabinet or locker with the magnet at Flawn Ocho ...

I'm in the process of designing a "checkerboard design" of sorts made up of beautiful vintageness such as this ... I'll of course give you the link to it here, so don't forget to bookmark or follow me SOMEWHERE...

Baby Boomers Buying Hot Dogs and a Horse Waiting for the Farm Store to Open...



Today a couple of goodies from a trip to Nashville in March...


Baby Boomers Buying Hot Dogs - I love this shot!
I have no idea who these folks are, but as we were waiting for the light to change
I couldn't help but notice them and had to get this shot.  



This beautiful fella gave me a fine shot in front of the Acme Farm Supply near the river...

Resizing and editing is often needed when creating merchandise for my retail store, Flawn Ocho ... but in this instance I was able to pop this horsey onto a journal and a nook sleeve with minimal time - so I'll bring that to you now ---> a Horse Waiting for the Farm Store to Open at Flawn Ocho...
