Our Sunday afternoon weather was agreeable, so we drove to Jonesborough to snap some photos and go for a short walk. Jonesborough, the oldest town in Tennessee, is less than ten miles from my home.
My handbag is here. The blue coat is four years old but still a favorite. A similar coat is here. I am considering changing the buttons to a matching color or perhaps black since I’m not fond of showy metallic buttons these days. Small changes, such as replacing buttons, can make an older item look more current.
Downtown area shops feature antiques, crafts, and home decor. There are boutiques, as well as several restaurants. Summer afternoons are usually very busy with tourists, but only a few locals are out and about in January.
I wore a charcoal gray merino wool turtleneck sweater (here), a silk scarf (similar here), and black jeans (here) with black short boots (similar here) under the coat. I folded the forty-inch square scarf into a triangle and looped the ends over once to tie it in front with the triangle’s point in the back.
Occasionally, I dust off my limited cooking skills and attempt to prepare dinner for Mr. Mickey. This time, I baked wild-caught salmon fillets topped with stone ground mustard, charred some broccoli in butter, and made my favorite black rice. The heirloom cherry tomatoes were so good!
