white sale

January is the month to buy new sheets so I thought I would round up some of my favorites.  These three are from Lulu DK and Matouk.


art love

I was delighted to find this talented artist Emily Barletta via pinterest via SF Girl by Bay.  At first glance I thought that these were ink drawings but they are actually thread sewn onto the paper.

I am hoping for some down time over the holidays so I can be creative.


Atlanta Warehouse Sale

We will be having a huge warehouse sale in our Atlanta store this week.  Please help spread the word if you have a friend there.



Time seems to be flying by faster than ever. For a casual weekend I can't imagine a better way to tell time.
What is it about vintage watches?  They are just so fun to look at!


vintage photos

I am in love with this photograph via retronaut.  The dresses and purses have me day dreaming of warmer weather.


vintage christmas

I never get tired of looking at vintage Christmas images...
Isn't she fabulous!


fall clothing

I am so excited about our new Cori dress. It is based on a vintage dress from the 70's.
What color is your favorite?  Red or blue?

stanley bielen

I am in love with the paintings by Stanley Bielen.

They remind me of one of my all time favorites, Robert M. Kulicke.  Looking at them makes me want to get out the oil paints this weekend!


Laura Trevey

I had the pleasure of meeting Laura when I was in NY for the Better Homes and Garden Style Maker Event.  After returning home I fell in love with her water colors that are available on her Etsy site.

How perfect would these 3 be for a boys room.....

Pretty flowers for my bedroom...

And a cute crab for my beach house..

 Oh now I remember that I don't have a beach house.

To find out more about this artist, mother, passionate blogger etc you can check out her great blog BrightBoldBeautiful.  It is full of color and inspiration for "living beautifully".

I hope that your week is off to a great start!

BHG stylemaker event

A week ago today I had the privilege to be on the panel at the Better Homes and Garden style maker event in NYC.  Needless to say it was loads of FUN!
Perfect details were everywhere...

After looking at these photos from Avi Gerver Photography I am noticing that I use my hands a lot!  (But I guess its OK if I can get Eddie Ross to laugh that hard.)

Eddie was as fun as you would expect him to be.  I have only spent time with him on a few occasions but I feel like we are best friends....probably because he is so likable and I stalk him on instagram.

The panel was moderated by Maxwell Ryan who is the founder and CEO of apartment therapy.  He did a great job and I really enjoyed chatting with him before and after the event.  He used to be a professor and you can see that in his thoughtful personality.

The lovely lady on the right is Annette Joseph.  She has just finished a book called picture perfect parties and I can't wait to read every page.  Annette is a photo stylist/producer who specializes in lifestyle editorial images.  I loved getting to meet her and I can wait to read how she always manages to enjoy a small glass of wine for 15 minutes before her parties begin.

It was fun to meet Sue from Zhush after reading her blog forever,  Laura Trevey from bright bold beautiful and the cute girl on the right who is starting her own line of clothing and who's name I can remember :(

I loved meeting all of the talented and fun people at BHG!


fall table

This morning is foggy with a touch of rain and cold here in Nashville.  This table setting by Roger Higgins on Style Blueprint has me in the mood for Fall cooking.

Is it just me or does today feel like Friday?


better homes and gardens

It has been a very exciting month! It was such an honor to be in BHG September issue. And tomorrow I head to NY to be part of a panel for the BHG Stylemaker event.
