In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Nashville, IN

Right outside of Brown County State Park is Nashville, IN. This quaint little town started as an artist colony over 100 years ago. Some of the stores have changed to cheap, store bought junk, but others are still artsy stores. But first things first...

My favorite Nashville Coffee Shop, The Daily Grind,


is tucked away in this little shopping nook
They PILE the whipped cream on your latte's! mmm mmmm
Some Nashville, IN stores - just to give you an idea of the quaintness...


My Shug is holding up a sign that says, "OH, I'M SORRY. You must have me confused with the maid you think we have." He said it reminds him of me!
There are a lot of log cabins in brown county and there is a tour in May that allows you to go through some of them.

This one is for sale, right on the outside of Nashville.

We also went to Morgantown, IN, which is about 20 minutes from Nashville. We stopped and ate at this little cafe'.


We also stopped at some garage sales.....

There was one sale that had a huge oak table I wanted, but one of us decided we didn't need it and we'd just have to store it and it'd be a hassle trying to get it in the car......blah blah...

I'll show you some of the stuff I did buy tomorrow....

  1. Ok Cindy....I am just sitting here wanting to climb in the monitor screen and come with you! I went to Nashville a couple of years ago with some aunts, cousins and my sister. My dads side of the family the women have yearly girls weekend and I was able to make it to that one. It was a great day. I have walked in your shoes down those streets. Can't wait to see your buys!

  5. Brenda, Sounds like it's time for you to plan another family trip! I'm fortunate that Dave likes to go there too. Most of my family members would not want to stay longer than a day, and they definitely wouldn't be stopping at garage sales! Most of them like the new junk!

    Queen, Yes they do need to get back to more artsy/crafty stuff. That's what brought the town fame. I think you'd make a lovely hippie!

    Marilyn, OK I'm a bad Mom. I did not take Dixie, he stayed with his original founder, and I did not buy him anything at the dog store. I did buy the guy's dog a doggie cigar at that store though. I do have a biscuit recipe that I am going to make. I've made it before and dogs love it. I get down there and I feel so artsy/crafty that I just want to come home and make stuff, rather than buy it.

    Birgit - WELCOME! South Texas, wow! What took you so far away from Indiana? So glad you stopped by for a visit.

  6. Marilyn,

    That would be...the guy that watched Dixie. I bought his dog a doggie cigar. That was kind of unclear....Cindy
