last weekend in the south

Last weekend we took a long road trip during a short weekend. We headed off to Nashville Thursday night after work and got to look around the city a little bit on Friday morning.

This is Hatch Show Print - really cool place. They are now part of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and make/remake great music posters, art prints and stationary.

Later that day we continued onward to Birmingham, AL for a friend's wedding.

The ceremony took place at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

And the reception took place at the couple's friend's ad agency - Scout Branding in Birmingham.

This was my first trip to this part of the country. I really liked Birmingham, very pretty and hilly with stately southern homes. And everyone is so friendly!

On Sunday we drove the 10+ hours back to Chicago. Long trip but definitely worth it!

Man Shops Globe

A new show premieres tonight on the Sundance Channel , Man Shops Globe, which follows an accesories and home accents buyer for Anthropologie. From the Sundance website:

In each half-hour program, Keith Johnson travels to a new country in search of fantastic and unusual decorative objects, furniture, and textiles. He also seeks out the world's best artists and crafts people. MAN SHOPS GLOBE follows Johnson, who travels six months of the year, to ends-of-the-earth excursions, from flea markets in Paris to remote villages in India and obscure art studios in Turkey.

We all love Anthropologie and this show sounds really fun (like, my dream job??). But it also kind of sounds like a long ad for Anthro and makes me feel bad about the mass production of cultural arts and crafts for all us bohemiam yuppies.

More opinions and reviews can be found here.

I will be watching though.
