The Reality of Launching a Product

The Reality of Launching a Product

My house is covered in patterns.  I have been styling photos and making and applying decals nonstop.  This is my reality this week.  It’s fun, but so exhausting.  At least I get to share with y’all some of the fun walls I have styled!   Here’s the reality of doing this with kids! Little B wanted to […]

Instantly Glam a Room Up-Preppy Pattern Wall Decals

Instantly Glam a Room Up-Preppy Pattern Wall Decals

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 […]

Leopard Print Luxe

Leopard Print Luxe

I’m on a kick. I major kick. I love leopard. Or cheetah….or whatever you want to call it. Either way, I love it. It’s cropping up in everything I have been purchasing lately. I love this new leopard print bracelet that I got from Stacy Brown Designs…and it’s monogrammed, of course. You can find the […]

Tiffany Blue Party Favors

Tiffany Blue Party Favors

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 […]

A Breakfast at Tiffany’s Inspired First Birthday Party…We were only missing the cat with no name.

A Breakfast at Tiffany’s Inspired First Birthday Party…We were only missing the cat with no name.

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 […]

Whoville Inspired Christmas Cookies-Brightly colored whoopie pies that make even a ol’ Grinch smile…

Every year, my friend Jackie hosts a cookie swap for all of our group of girlfriends.  We all look forward to it and plan ahead for what we will be doing.  All along, I had fun “Whoville” inspired theme I was planning for.  But as they do every year, the Christmas stressors hit me full […]

Tis the Season!

Tis the Season!

I am obsessed with gold. I mean it, I can’t stop. Gold everything, everywhere. Today I wrapped some gifts-of course, they had to be adorned with gold. My favorite thing to do is buy a long strand of over-the-top tinsel garland and cut pieces. I tie the piece to the top of the gift and voila! […]

Just a normal Tuesday…

Just a normal Tuesday…

Hello there! How was your Thanksgiving?  We spent our holiday visiting our families.  This was our first year of having my family and D’s family living close to us (D’s parents just moved down from Ohio.)  We were curious how the kiddos would hold up with our running around. Luckily, they did great. We got to […]

It’s a Chippy Old White Armoire…and It’s Freaking Fabulous.

It’s a Chippy Old White Armoire…and It’s Freaking Fabulous.

My neighborhood has a Facebook page and this little beauty popped up with a “For Sale” listing on the post. I had to have it. Another neighbor clearly thought the same thing and after a little persuasion, I got my hands on it. (I couldn’t give this one up.) I wasn’t crazy about the color, […]

They’re Living in High Cotton

They’re Living in High Cotton

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 […]
