What the heck is SweetHoney?

Just when I thought I had shopping all figured out, I had a little girl. There is the endless ‘problem’ of seeing too many cute things and then trying to resist the urge to buy another ruffle-covered-butt-bubble. Pretty simple, right? Then I discovered this little Facebook page called SweetHoney.  (I use the term ‘little’ loosely.)  [...]

When I love something, I tend to obsess over it.  Here is an (extremely random) list of my “of-the-moment” favorites: Sequin Wine I am a red wine kinda gal.  I love it and rarely ever order white…until I discovered this little gem.  I’m not going to lie, I bought it because the bottle was cute.  But when [...]

DIY Vintage Dress Form

G12

For years I have been salivating over the idea of purchasing a vintage dress form.  At the going rate of $500, I simply couldn’t bring myself to do it.  Seriously though…look at these pictures!  Aren’t they gorgeous?  A vintage dress form has the ability to add an air of chic sophistication to a room.  I. HAD. TO. HAVE. ONE. I was [...]

Peel and Eat Shrimp: The Quick, Easy Warm Weather Meal

IMG_6822

A friend of mine (thanks Aliesha!) shared her recipe for fool-proof peel and eat shrimp. I truly never knew how easy it was…for some reason, I always found it so intimidating. After making it once, it has become our favorite meal to make when the weather warms up. There’s something about a cold glass of [...]

For any party, it’s important to give attention to the small things. I truly believe the little details make a party go from good to great. The best part is that it’s so easy to do without spending a ton of money. Candles bring a certain amount of “sparkle” to a party…they are a necessity. I [...]

The Wooden Silhouette

Southern Nest Silhouettes The silhouette.  It’s classic, elegant, and has an air of vintage sophistication.  Suddenly, I am obsessed.  After browsing different options for having a silhouette made of little B (for myself and as Christmas presents for the grandparents) I knew I wanted an updated spin on the traditional silhouette portrait. It all started [...]

And I want it to be summer. Most years, I feel like I blink and it’s summer and 100 degrees outside. But this year…what’s going on? Perhaps I have been cooped up in the house with a 3 year old and a new baby for far too long, but this winter feels ENDLESS. I was [...]

Pink and Green Nursery: Georgia’s Room

G14

The nursery.  The room that has to be perfect, down to the smallest detail.  (Even when it’s your second child and you’re fully aware the child will not even be in the nursery for several months….ya still want it perfect.) For Georgia’s room, I went back and forth over two styles: all white with lots [...]

Georgia On My Mind….

G57

Meet Georgia Sloane! My little bundle of joy arrived on Jan 5 and we are smitten. Labor was a breeze compared to B (this time, the epidural WORKED!) and I am so thankful for that. Georgia made her entrance in the world 3 weeks earlier than expected, with a head of blond hair and quite [...]

IMG_8367-001

Remember my kitchen cabinet redo and my awful “Before” cabinets? Well, just like my kitchen, all of the cabinets in my bathrooms also suffered from a case of “boring.”  I decided I procrastinated the makeover long enough and I broke out the paint supplies…plus a new weapon.  Beadboard wallpaper.  I first read about using the wallpaper on cabinet [...]
