franklin tn information: A Snowy Night in Franklin TN - 01/21/11 07:40 AM
We have had our second big snow last night.  One thing we like to do when it snows is go downtown Franklin.  Usually the restaurants are open and we like to go to McCreary's Irish Pub.  They had music there last night, and it wasn't crowded.  The snow and downtown and the few people has kind of a magical feel. 
To further add to the magical feel, I get out of the car in front of the Toy Store.  We have a fabulous toy store in Franklin, with wooden trains and cool puzzles, etc.  In the front window of the store … (1 comments)

When I leave my house, I often see things happening around town that I didn't expect and that bless my day.  One of the first times I thought this, I was driving downtown Franklin and saw a man riding a unicycle, and that led to several interesting people and cars that turned out to be the leftover of the homecoming parade!  Another day a friend and I were eating lunch at the Mellow Mushroom on the square and here comes the Easter Bunny walking down the street.  It was so funny! 
So this week I had two fun sightings.  Taking my daughter … (1 comments)

We had the pleasure of going to the Farmer's Market at the Factory on Saturday. The crowd was great!  I was glad to see so many people out supporting the local produce, meat and flower sellers.  I did see quite a bit of produce still available for 10 am.  I am sure they would love to have even bigger crowds.  The most popular booth was selling flowers.  On lady said she waited for nearly an hour for these amazingly beautiful flower bouquets.  I am including some photos of the beautiful flowers below. 
Our corn on the cob did leave a bit … (4 comments)

franklin tn information: Floods in Franklin, TN - 05/24/10 12:56 PM
On May 1 and 2, Nashville and Middle TN had some of the worst flooding on record.  The waters came over the 100 year flood plain to flood houses that never expected or probably even thought this would or could happen to them.  Volunteers got busy cleaning out houses and toting away the trash.  The problems are huge. 
There are news articles and videos available all over Facebook and Youtube.  The people have been helpful and come together in amazing ways.  There is still so much loss and trouble though for those whose houses flooded. 
In Franklin, the Harpeth River rose and … (1 comments)

HENPECK MARKET and THE LOFT at the Henpeck Market I love Don and Jackie Gregory, the owners of the Henpeck Market on the corner of Henpeck Lane and Lewisburg Pike in Franklin.   This is a fabulous country market that is great for the neighborhood, but not really in the country.  They transformed this place about 6 years (?) ago and it has continued to grow into something more and more interesting. But wait, I am getting ahead of myself.  The Henpeck Market is lots of things.  It is a small grocery store that has a gas station attatched to it.  I … (4 comments)
