About Town

My most sincere apologies to everyone for neglecting my blog over the weekend! Friday included a crazy night of celebrating my lovely girl JoJo's birthday, then a bit of recovery time from the very late night, and I spent the remainder of the weekend hunting for lovely vintage stuff and out hiking about town and in the woods. Chattanooga is a very artsy and outdoorsy town, rich in public art installations, urban hiking and biking opportunities, and beautiful riverfront parks. This incredible sculpture at Renaissance Park mimics the shape of Lookout Mountain - famous for its Civil War history.
Random parking garage.
Workings of the Market Street Drawbridge.
One of many landscape design elements around the Aquarium representing the Tennessee River.
Beautiful Heron in the wetlands at Renaissance Park.
The mansion in the distance is part of Hunter Museum of Art - one of the best museums in the Southern U.S. The addition (not pictured) is a stunning piece of modern architecture.
Looking toward the aquarium while walking across the 119 year old Walnut Street bridge, one of the longest pedestrian bridges in the world.

Thanks everyone! I try to take the camera everywhere I go. I left it behind when I took a hike on a new trail a few days ago, and we found the largest tree I have seen in my county.

Hello Lindello, I found some great vintage over the weekend (listed a few items in my shop today). Love your new items. I love everything in Hello Victory!

Sara, that is the e-mail address that I tried. Nothing important, just trying to find out how to do a guest post.
