CK Bradley

I had the pleasure of meeting Camilla Bradley about a year ago.  She is as beautiful and lively as she looks in her photos.  I love her line CK Bradley it has that vintage and modern combo that I love.


a sweet sunday

One of my daughters loves ballet.  She is a student at Nashville Ballet and dances 5 days a week.  I purchased season tickets for the two of us.  Today's performance of Giselle by the Nashville Ballet was a beautiful treat.  Grab a friend, or daughter, or mother, and get tickets to the next ballet.  It is a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.


vintage love

I love vintage clothing but I am guilty of making purchases and then never wearing them.  This September my sister got married in Sea Island GA.  As always, I waited until the last minute to figure out what to wear.  I couldn't find anything in stores and had to find something in my closet.  I decided on this vintage dress that I had purchased at a garage sale years ago.  At under $10 this navy and orange dress was perfect for the event.  This fall I am determined to alter all of the great vintage things that I have hiding in my closet.

wisteria love

I always love getting the Wisteria catalogue.  The new one is no different.  Here are some of my favorite offerings.



All of the catalogues are getting me excited for Christmas.  I love the idea of tiny advent gifts.  I have done them for my children and my coworkers at Pears + Bears.  I am loving this one from Garnet Hill.  It would also be fun to knit yourself or make with vintage finds.



I am loving all of these goodies from iomoi.  You have to check out all of the bag options.  How glamorous are the pink and gold pencils?


I am in love with this photo from the sartorialist.


great book

I just finished this great book by Michael Pollan.  (by great I mean that it confirms everything that I already believe)



the perfect sunday

Some Sundays are perfect.  This was one of them.  After church it was a little rainy and a little cold.  The perfect day to paint and bake bread and relax.

long island

I had the pleasure of going "home" for a a few days.  Olivia and I wanted to welcome Grandpa back from a far too long stay in the hospital.  I am so thankful that I still have a childhood home to visit.  For me there is nothing like a place to bring back memories.

I snapped this photo of the porch to inspire me for my own screened in porch.  Like every room in my parents house it is gorgeous, full of comfortable seating and perfectly outfitted with some beautiful plants.
