Nashville Trip

Hi Ya all

Well I am back from my Nashville Tennessee trip to go to the book signing for Cheryl & Griff Day from Savannah Georgia. I met them in Savannah  a couple years ago and love them to death. Their bakery is on Bull Street in Savannah Georgia so if your ever there go by the bakery , you won't be disappointed ,every thing is made from scratch meaning real home made bakery goods. The cup cakes are little pieces of heaven my favorite you can tell also  they them I sent you . Janice from Missouri

The book signing was at Paranass book store in the Green Hills area and oh my the shopping was fabulous in that mall. My friend Pat  from Paducah Kentucky went with me , I picked her up on the way down to Nashville, anyway we was in this extra nice mall we noticed, not the usual small town mall and we was looking around and I ask the young lady in Coldwater Creek is there a Louis Vuitton store in Nashville? because I had seen lots of ladies with Louis Vuitton bags, she said YES there is just outside of our store OMG !!!!!!!!!!! I said Pat were going down here LOL. I was sure I would get a new bag after having the nice young man  Wesley drag out every bag I mentioned and I walked around the store with them. I left with out one ! Nothing was the ONE you know what I mean?

Cheryl Day And me


Cheryl & Griff at the book store before the beginning, my poke a dot bag and me in the right bottom of the picture.


Cheryl  is friends with Paula Deen, Paula wrote a forward in their new cook book,  and her and Griff   rode with Paula in her private jet to Atlanta for their show on QVC last Sunday. Cheryl said the jet ride was fabulous , plush was the word. Paula & Cheryl & Griff was all on QVC selling their cook books

This is in a Lego out store at Opry Mills , just had to stop and get a birthday present for my grandson who was just  5  on April 4th

Here is my friend Pat we was on our way to Heartland Worship Center in Paducah Kentucky, that is where Pat attends church


This was my purchase at a resale shop In Paducah. I had seen this in gift shops and always liked it . A small cake plate with matching plates and pink and green poke a dots , love it . I think it was about $75.00 in a shop when I first seen it . well it was $12.00 at this resale shop so just had to bring it home


also a matching box , I love boxes LOL


              Just a little glass chicken to make an Easter picture, this is such a beautiful time of the year , all the Easter candy and pink & green everywhere, deviled eggs and ham yum yum


this bunny was part of my calendar I posted about once, you can reverse it to make the animals plain


   If you want a great cook book for desserts and sweets please check this out . I requested my local library get a copy and they have

I almost forgot to tell you Amy,  Cheryl & Griff's publist said she will send me a copy of the cookbook for a Giveaway on my blog !!! So I will be having my first giveaway when I get the info from Amy , stay tuned as they say
