    I’ve never hear of Franklin, Tennessee. What brought you there? Beyond having cute houses is there some attraction? Just curious. I believe you said you rented a cute house there too. You’ll have to share that place. Love the open kitchen/dining area in this cottage. Happy Sunday!

      Hi Celia. I discovered the charm of Franklin about 20 years ago on a business trip – it’s not too far from Nashville. A lot of celebrities and musicians have homes in Franklin (Justin Timberlake, Sheryl Crow…), and it is the sort of place where they will never be bothered or hounded. Things are simple and the pace is slow. The Giannettis nearly moved to Leipers Fork which is right next to Franklin so they were charmed too! 🙂
