crazy week!

Sorry that I have been missing in action. We found out less than a week ago that we were going to be able to move into a retail space that we have been wanting for a while.  Our whole team has been working like crazy and we were able to open for business today!

We are thrilled to be in the Hill Center in Nashville.  I will be working all day tomorrow so please come by and say hi.  I am very thankful for Scott (who among lots of other things painted the whole store pink)  Caroline, Betsy and Ali who came in early and stayed late.  My children who pulled tinting off windows and unpacked boxes were the best.  I couldn't have done it with out friends who offered to pick up my kids from school and ballet and come help with display or stop by and say hi.  And thankfully my friend Gen came over and worked her merchandising magic.  I am sure that I have forgotten someone but I am ready to crawl into bed.


western shirt

Our western shirt and some other goodies are on major sale today...as in $10!

Sizes are limited but prices are crazy. Hope you are having a wonderful Monday!


crochet blanket

There is something about this time of year that makes me want to find my old knitting needles.  Fortunately my daughter is working on a scarf and lets me do a row or two now and then.

This beautiful blanket is making me wish that I knew how to crochet.  Actually the purl bee makes me want to do nothing but sit by the fire and knit or crochet.

I am seriously craving a project.

Paul Balmer

I love these large landscapes by Paul Balmer.
I hope that you are all excited for a short week. Our oldest is home from school and I am looking forward to a cozy lazy Thursday with a lot of yummy turkey!



If my family is reading these beautiful bracelets are on my Christmas list...the more the merrier!


vintage books

I love creative endeavors that involve vintage books.  I found this one via Melodie's Pinterest.  To see how it is made you can go to Cosmo Cricket.

I do have a stash of books that I couldn't resist at Good Will.  It would be a fun Christmas project....


go big or go home

You have probably noticed by now that I love big.
I am crazy in love with this giant pearl necklace that we just added to our store.  For $35 it is the perfect way to add some fun to any outfit.

Grab one for yourself and a few to give away before they are gone!
Happy Friday!


Holiday dresses

I am looking forward to dressing up over the Holidays.  I think that the tunic is my favorite.

How about you.  Are you looking forward to some festivities?  I would love to know which dress is your favorite.


paint it

Do you ever feel like you might go nuts if you don't make something with your hands? I found these on pinterest today and I wish I could pick one up right now. I am not sure that I am steady enough to do my walls but some forgiving wrapping paper might be in my near future. You can check out some more patterns at the painted house.
How about you... Have you made anything lately?

kate spade

I am loving these new offerings from Kate Spade.


vintage toys

I am a bit of a vintage toy junkie and am loving these photos that Scott recently took.

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend!

Photography was one of my favorite mediums as an art major in college.  I happily spent many late hours in the dark room.

I am in love with the following vintage images by photographer John French.

I hope that you have a beautiful Friday!
