A Lilly Pulitzer party for our little cupcake

A Lilly Pulitzer party for our little cupcake

Gigi loves cupcakes. Her eyes light up when she sees one and she talks about them constantly. Naturally, we decided to use “cupcakes” as the theme for her 2nd birthday party. And just because I kept falling in love with every Lilly themed straw and cupcake topper I saw, I decided to decorate with Lilly […]

Vintage Soda Crates Storage, Beach Music, and a Scare

Vintage Soda Crates Storage, Beach Music, and a Scare

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.  […]

Ahoy! A Coastal Bathroom DIY

Ahoy! A Coastal Bathroom DIY

There comes a time that you have to say to yourself, “finish that project already!” For me, that time was last week. That project was decorating the kids’ bathroom. And yes, friends, it is DONE. DONE. DONE.  I can’t say it enough times. So the room started out looking like this. I can’t find any […]

A Distressed Wine Cabinet: Everything needs a little pop of gold.

A Distressed Wine Cabinet: Everything needs a little pop of gold.

I found the best wine cabinet at ReStore in Cornelius. A solid piece of furniture, all it needed was a facelift. Of course, I cannot find the before picture. I am adding photo organization to my “to do” list. Anyway, the old finish was a stain that had a lot of red undertones to it. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
