What a week this has been! We had such a fun weekend.  We spent Saturday at our friends’ annual pool party and on Sunday went to see “Band of Oz” playing at Davidson’s Concert on the Green.  It was HOT.  Like the intolerable kind of hot.  But our kids danced and we had quality family time, so it was all worth it.  [...]

On Saturday mornings, we have been running up to the Farmer’s Market in Davidson. If you have not been, you definitely need to try it out. I love to get flowers from there-they’re a great price and absolutely gorgeous. They stay fresh all week (they start to wilt just in time for me to get [...]

An Entryway Table: A Little Unwanted Table Goes a Long Way

An Entryway Table: A Little Unwanted Table Goes a Long Way

Everyone has that funky room.  The room that just needs something, but you don’t quite know what it needs.  For me, that room was my foyer.  Being the very first room anyone saw, I HATED that I didn’t so much as even ”like” it.  It felt bare…cold…sparse.  The room’s shape didn’t necessarily allow for a ton of furniture, but [...]

Something amazing happens in the moment that an imaginative thought becomes a reality.  That happened to me this week. I started thinking about how I wanted to wallpaper a bathroom wall in a “punchy” and bold white and navy whale pattern.  One thought led to an other (as the ADD mind so often does) and [...]

Good Lord, it’s been cold outside! We have been stuck in our house. Poor little B begged so long to go outside the other evening…I finally broke down. He was allowed to play in the freezing weather as long as he wore a coat, hat, etc. The child hates to wear a hat…and this was [...]

Well, it happened.  My baby girl turned one.  Doesn’t that make her technically a toddler now?  That word alone makes me want to cry.  I cannot believe how fast this year went.  I was digging through old photos of her the other day and stumbled on this photo I took of her and B on [...]

They’re Living in High Cotton

They’re Living in High Cotton

IMG_0220

It’s a Southern term.  “Living in high cotton,” that is.  Cotton is such a staple of Southern history…sadly, I remember tuning out many a middle school history lesson regarding the importance of cotton in the South.  It’s funny…now as an adult, I have a genuine obsession with raw, natural cotton stems.  They are GORGEOUS to decorate with and [...]

I was lucky enough to be asked by the North Mecklenburg Women’s Club to decorate a table for the ‘Over the Tabletop’ event at the Peninsula Country Club. I was so excited to be able to participate.  I deliberated over my theme for quite a while, finally choosing to design ‘A Bridal Luncheon for a [...]

DIY Vintage Dress Form

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 [...]

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 [...]
