One Sunny Day!

Saturday was a rare sunny day here in East Tennessee. 
We have seen rain almost everyday for the past few weeks.

We took full advantage of the beautiful weather by visiting one of our favorite small towns. 
Abingdon, Virginia is about an hour's drive from my home. 

Many Abingdon homes and shops date from 1778. 

You can catch a glimpse of fabulous gardens and moss covered courtyards as you stroll along the tree lined streets.

Breezes were starting to blow in another round of clouds by the end of the day.

Most of the buildings have been restored to their former glory including such details as ordering the handmade glass from Germany to replace windows.

There are already so many wonderful shops and restaurants and more are opening in the coming weeks. Many events and festivals take place here including world class antique shows. Music, artisan crafts and wine which are among the best in the region can be found here in Abingdon.

After our day of shopping we had a lovely dinner at Sisters located in the Martha Washington Inn. The gardens at the Martha are fabulous at this time of year.

Thanks for sharing our fun day with us!

The floral tee is from Chico's. The white Peck and Peck ankle pants are from Stein Mart as is the handbag. The shoes are by Kenneth Cole Reaction via T.J.Maxx.

I have not made it there and I should...VA is pretty long on the western side...not an hour from me, but worth the visit. It's so pretty and historic! Love your outfit as well.

You are gorgeous in blue and white. And the backgrounds that you chose are equally appealing.

Roanoke VA is another great town! A really wonderful downtown with shops, farmers market, restaurants and an impressive Art Museum. Hotel Roanoke is a huge, grand old hotel. We were impressed with this town!
