Clinton, TN

Yesterday afternoon we were feeling a bit stir crazy, so we jumped in the car and drove out to Clinton, TN. Clinton is about half an hour from Knoxville and V waited until we got there before she started screaming her head off. So I did the best I could and didn't get to explore like I would've liked. I'm starting to wonder if V gets car sick sitting in the back seat like I do.

Clinton is an interesting town. There are only about 10,000 residents, yet the whole area is hopping. Clinton is the place to be if you want to go antiquing (including one shop called Antique Heaven). I saw at least six antique shops there. It's a little more spread out than some of the other towns I've visited recently, and it looks like there are some newer buildings mixed in with the old. But the old buildings are certainly lovely.

I'll bet that getting those air conditioners in there was no mean feat.

There were so many cool houses, it was hard to decide which streets to drive down.

One of my favorite houses - I love the roof and it has all these crazy angles.

I'm sorry I didn't really get to drive around Clinton enough, but I'm glad I got to see it. I got a lot more pictures, I just haven't had time to go through them.

My honey comes home early tomorrow evening. Halelujah!

You have lots of neat towns near you.

Love your new banner. Wish I knew how to do that.

Hooked on Houses

Hey, Maya, I love the photo of the house with the little porch tucked into that sort of alcove off to the side. I just added it to my post about porches and linked to you. You can see it here:

Thanks! -Julia :-)


What a cool house! The fourth pic.

I have antique fever right now. I'm reading a novel in which the protagonist is an antique picker, and it's feeding my desire to go antiquing. Unfortunately, I have no money and a little boy that antique store owners would probably be horrified to meet.
