Welcome to Our Technicolor Life Monthly Newsletter!


Welcome back to another exciting edition of Our Technicolor Life's monthly newsletter! We're thrilled to have you join us on our colorful journey through the many facets of our adventurous lives. As always, we're Jeff and Carrie Ketterman, a dynamic husband and wife duo who are passionate about embracing a vintage lifestyle in the most vibrant way possible.


A Glimpse into Our Lives

In case you're new here, let us introduce ourselves once again. Jeff spends his days immersed in the bustling world of rail transportation as the General Manager at Kasgro Rail Corporation Management Division. With a fleet of over 500 heavy-duty railcars, Jeff is at the forefront of providing innovative solutions for the ever-evolving rail industry.

Meanwhile, Carrie's days are filled with creativity and artistic expression. As a painter, illustrator, and author, she breathes life into murals and paintings that tell stories with every brushstroke.


Adventures Await

After our workday concludes, the real excitement begins! Our historic home, known as The Old Capitol Tea Room, transforms into a hub of themed tea parties that transport us and our guests to different eras and worlds. From the glitz and glamour of the 1920s to the groovy vibes of the 1960s, we've hosted an array of captivating events this past month that ignite the senses and spark joy.


Speaking of our musical passions, our bands are another cornerstone of Our Technicolor Life. Rosie & the Rockabillies, a vivacious 1950s-style band, and The Tin Pan Alley Cats, a toe-tapping 1920s-style ensemble, allow us to spread our love for music and nostalgia far and wide.


TEA

Tea Adventures in August

Under our beloved TEA channel, August was nothing short of a whirlwind! Our tea parties were in full swing, creating unforgettable memories for all who attended. We kicked off the month with a SpaceOddiTEA-themed tea party that had everyone jamming to the delightful tunes of The Tin Pan Alley Cats. A Summer of Love tea party followed, complete with iconic figures like Sonny & Cher, Janis Joplin, and John Lennon making surprise appearances to pay homage to the 1960s' greatest hits.


Of course, we couldn't resist paying tribute to the King himself. Two Elvis-themed tea parties brought the spirit of rock 'n' roll to The Old Capitol Tea Room not to mention the cutest little Elvis ever. And who could forget the two Barbie parties, where C'mon Barbie Let's Go ParTEA became the rallying cry for a fun and fabulous time? Not gonna lie, I'm really excited to have my very own Barbie box at home now. Jeff did an incredible job with building it.


As the month drew to a close, we unveiled the eagerly anticipated Murder at the Capitol Club, a 1920s-themed mystery that had everyone on the edge of their seats. We were thrilled to welcome guests from as far as Nashville, TN, who joined us in solving the captivating puzzle. We met these lovely ladies a few years ago when performing our Lucy & Desi Tribute Show in Granville, TN. for the annual Mayberry Lucy Festival and they made the road trip all the way to Corydon for the mystery and looked absolutely fabulous doing so!
