City Farmhouse Pop-up Show: A Look Back
The Second Annual City Farmhouse Pop-up Show is only eight weeks away--and it can't come soon enough for us! Just imagine: crisp air, changing leaves, Hites famous Heirloom Pumpkins.... and scores of handpicked selections spanning all eras and styles (farmhouse, French, architectural, garden, lighting, industrial, Americana and much more). All sprawled across the grounds of the stunning "lost-in-time" gardens and mansion of the late music publisher Buddy Killen, located on Old Hillsboro Road, just a hop, skip, and a jump from the magical village of Leiper's Fork.
To leave you with a little excitement, we wanted to share some of our favorite scenes from the 2013 show and continue to scroll on down for a little sampling of what we're working on to WOW you in October.
City Farmhouse Pop-up Show, 2014 ......
Just past the rusting iron gates enveloped with nature’s growth lies a path that leads over a stone bridge to a mansion--one that has sat quietly since its caretaker left it in 2002. Years before that, it had welcomed some of country music’s most famous people: Dolly Parton, Porter Wagoner, and George Jones just to name a few. Past it doors was the sound of music with a padded music room that held the baby grand, and at its helm sat one of country music’s most famous publishers, Buddy Killen.
Its only neighbors were the occasional deer that roamed across the 200-acre lawn, and the bullfrogs which sang in unison along the slopping banks of the land along the secluded lake. In the rear, a formal garden unveiled the centerpiece, a monumental fountain of cast iron towering with cascading waters to the earth below. The path along the guest entrance to the garden is magical; covered with a canopy of nature’s landscaping so lush that it allows only a peek of the sun.
Now, it's waiting for City Farmhouse to transform it. See what we're working with below:
