Last week we had some friends for supper.  We love eating on the porch when it isn't too hot.
I love how sweet the zinnias looked in the vintage glasses I got at Goodwill.
The beautiful napkins are from turkish-t and are carried in our Atlanta store.

I love making watermelon mojitos in the summer and serve them early in the evening because they are stronger than you think!

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



I have followed Stephanie's blog (stephmodo forever). If you don't already it is delightful and full of beautiful original content. I love that her pie shaped boxes and picnic flatware are now being sold at Anthropologie!

I admire Athropologie for working with people instead of simply knocking them off.


I love the fresh and timeless appeal of nautical clothing.  All of these goodies are now on sale for 50% off.

Do you have a favorite?  Mine is the denim dress.  I have worn mine a lot this summer.  It looks great when running around during the day and I love to throw on my red high wedges for the night.



All of our spring clothing is on sale for 50% off!  Grab your favorites before they are gone.



I am crazy about these card from mara-mi that we have in the store.

I am thinking of framing some of them for the dressing rooms in the Atlanta store. Are you excited for the weekend?

I am loving this small recent landscape by David Boyd.
We had a fun but exhausting day shooting our Fall line I am going to try to round up some photos for you tomorrow.

Scott snapped a few photos of me heading out the door on our cherished date night.

I have always been a fan of lucite but I am especially loving how fresh it feels at this time of year.

vintage girls dress

Well not exactly vintage..this girls dress was in last Spring's line. A customer sent me this photo and it was too cute not to share.
I hope that you all have some fun plans for the next few days!


pink flowers

The other day I was painting some little cards for a friend. I was enjoying the relaxing process and feeling good about my little creations. Then Olivia who just turned 8 decided to give it a try...

These are two of my favorite ones that she did. 
I love watching my children be creative.
