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.
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.
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 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.
