kayce bag

I am really excited about our new kayce bag. We just introduced red and more colors will be available soon. I love designing accessories and hope to be able to more soon.

What would you like to see next? A clutch bag....shoes?


amberlee rosolowich

I am loving these paintings by Amberlee Rosolowich.

I found her via the new blog artstormer. Artstormer is written by a friend Betsy who has a great eye and a witty tongue. Please go check it out, I hope that you love it as much as I do.


stylish blogger award

Loretta at apples and rubies nicely nominated me for:
My assignment is to share 7 things you probably don't know about me...
1. I never wear black.

2. I grind my own wheat and use it to make breads and pancakes etc.

3. You might know that I have 7 children but you probably don't know that I am the oldest of 6.

4. Lilly Pulitzer is my aunt and our rehearsal dinner was at her house.

5. A few weeks ago I died my hair red from a box at Walgreen's. My husband says it looks fake but I think I like it.

6. I did natural childbirth with 6 of my 7 children. (in hospital no drugs)

7. I have never been officially diagnosed but my horrible spelling indicates that I am dyslexic.

I thought it would be fun to pass this along to a few of my friends who blog here in Nashville. Please take a peek at their blogs that are as wonderful as they are...

party time

Today we celebrated our friend and former coworker's birthday.
We love a reason to get together and laugh and eat some yummy food.
I made these brownies for desert and I have to say they were awesome. But just to make sure I had a second helping after the party.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend. I am so excited to head to Atlanta Market in the morning with my friend Sarah. Are any of you going to be there?


winter sale

We just put our Fall women's and children's clothing on sale. Please share the news with any friends or readers who like a deal!

I am designing next fall this week so please let me know if there is anything you are looking for.



My MacBook doesn't usually go anywhere other than my desk in my office and up to flights to my kitchen. But if I did need a cover...
This would be it.


kit kittredge

When I first started my clothing line all of my fabrics were copies of vintage feed sacks from the 40's. So naturally I love the American girl doll Kit.

I think that her green dress is my favorite.

We saw the movie in the theatre when it came out years ago (with my older girls). I just saw it again with my younger girls and I still love it.

If you have young girls and haven't seen it yet I give it a big thumbs up.


tracy's house

Scott couldn't help but take some photos of Tracy's beautiful home and I thought you would enjoy them.
My long time blog readers will remember her home from the last time I did a photo shoot.
The house has been rearranged.
And I am sure it will look different the next time I am there.
Tracy is an occupational therapist by day and would love to wow her with some awesome comments by my encouraging readers.
So please ohhh and ahhh in the comments and I can pass it along.


red bag and silk dress

We spent the morning photographing the new women's spring line. We will be getting the photos on the web soon but I wanted to give you all a sneak peek.

Brook was a fabulous model and all of the photographs were taken by the talented Scott Hughes. (aka my sweet husband) We usually fight over the camera but this time I played stylist.

A huge thank you to everyone, especially the Smith Family for letting us invade their beautiful home.


happy new year

I am so thankful for each of you who take the time to read this blog. I am hoping that you have a wonderful new year. To be honest I am sitting here a little sad that the Holidays are almost over.
