We’re all keeping a secret about the gift we got for someone else. Honestly, I’ve never been good at secrets So, by the time you read this, you may have already heard about our big secret: On November 29, we produced our first ever Nashville Lifestyles & Landyn’s Favorite Things with Landyn Hutchinson. Since everything in the magazine world happens months ahead of time, I’m writing this to you and tickets haven’t even gone on sale yet. But, since you’re reading after the event has passed, I can’t spoil the surprise. So, check out our website (nashvillelifestyles.com) for the full scoop. All I can say is: I feel a lot like Oprah right now! Speaking of the holidays, I love, love, love when we do our annual gift guide. This year,…

MS. CHEAP PENNY DRIVE THROUGH JAN. 31 Pinch those pennies for a good cause this winter. November marked the beginning of the 10th year of the Ms. Cheap Penny Drive for Second Harvest Food Bank. Running through January 31, the drive is an effort to raise not only money, but awareness of hunger in Middle Tennessee. “For me, it’s all about awareness,” Mary Hance (aka, Ms. Cheap) says, adding that anyone from middle schoolers to corporate law firms can participate and donate. It’s as simple as picking up a can, donating your loose change, and returning it by the end of January. Last year, donations totaled almost $87,000, a record for the drive. So, pick up a can or two today at Second Harvest Food Bank, Pinnacle Financial Partners locations, or Wilson…

the gift of giving

This year, Music City celebrates 65 years of the Nashville Christmas Parade, an event that supports the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. In addition to the popular broadcast parade, this year marks what may become a new tradition for Vanderbilt, as well. Just after Thanksgiving, Vanderbilt kicked off “Jingle All the Broadway,” a new fundraising initiative that will run until Christmas, in collaboration with bars and restaurants along the strip. During these five weeks, a percentage of sales at various locations will go to the Children’s Hospital. Some participating locations include FGL House, Ole Red, Acme Feed & Seed, AJ’s Good Time Bar, Honky Tonk Central, and The Southern Steak & Oyster. At each location, guests will have the chance to donate money by text message, as well.…

tulle and thread

Step into Cheekwood’s Museum of Art, and a sense of warmth will envelop you this season. In this high-ceilinged room of white walls and wood floors stands a wall of tulle. Pinks and reds melt into soft layers of yellow that wash over electric blues, fading into deep purples. The wall is part of Cheekwood’s annual Artist-in-Residence exhibition, and Mexico City native Gabriel Dawe is this year’s artist. The exhibition not only showcases the newest work in his well-known Plexus series, it also introduces a new medium into Dawe’s work: tulle. On the opposite side of the large tulle rainbow is a space in which Dawe explored the fabric’s whimsy on a smaller scale. “It’s very playful, and, especially for the small pieces, most of them are done in the spur…
