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 […]

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! […]

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, […]

My Rule of Five

My Rule of Five

Organization has become the hardest thing for me to manage after becoming a mother.  I was always an organized person.  I found an organized room calmed me.  Then I had B and it all hit the fan.  I find food wrappers in the car, shoes in the bathtub, and random scribbles of marker everywhere.  My […]

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 […]

A Bridal Luncheon for a Southern Belle

A Bridal Luncheon for a Southern Belle

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 […]

Wooden Monogram Eye Candy 2014

Wooden Monogram Eye Candy 2014

I look forward to holding my Twelve Monograms of Christmas contest every year. Why?  Just when I think I have seen it all, someone emails a photo of how they have decorated with their monogram and we all are taken aback. I am inspired by the talent and creativity of my customers. Seeing the 2014 […]
