The Cashiers Showhouse is open!

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Well, it's been a minute since we've chatted! It has been a whirlwind of a last couple of weeks and I look forward to sharing it with you.....soon. But, for now, I am struggling to find the time to sit at my computer. So, I will share the cell pics and encourage you, if you haven't already, to visit the Cashiers Designer Showhouse before Sunday. You can have lunch at the cafe, browse the pop-up shops, and take in the majestic views of our mountains. Our weather is simply perfect this week!




Who cares that my name and my home state are misspelled??? I'm included, and that's what matters, right!!!




And for all of my Atlanta peeps, ADAC is providing a shuttle from Atlanta to the Showhouse on Friday {with lots of included goodies}. Check out the details here.

Have you visited? What were your favorite parts??


 

From this to that

I love repurposing furniture into something new and unexpected and using it in a different room of the home. Here is my antique empire sideboard that we got for a steal at least 15 years ago at an auction. I have it in the foyer and it houses keys, stamps, and warranties. 

  
{I added those enormous glass knobs}

And here is the same dresser used in an industrial loft as a bathroom vanity. I love the masculine vibe this old dresser gives this space. All of the old apothecary bottles and decanters look so great in here -- not to mention the backdrop of that 1/2 black wall and the cool leather strapped round mirror. 


The same piece of furniture used 2 different ways.

 I am getting ready to simplify my space and I'm planning on selling a ton of furniture, but now I am reconsidering holding on to this piece because I love it as a vanity AND it's really tall which makes this tall girl quite happy.

Deals and steals

Tuesday, August 05, 2014

Checking out all of your FB and Instagram posts, it's hard to believe so many of the kids are back in school already! We are shopping for new room accessories for Maris as she is moving back to college this weekend. She will be living in the sorority house this year and, apparently, this room will be even smaller than last years dorm room. This rug may end up being wall-to-wall carpet. sigh...


{FYI--while shopping, this is how you decide if a rug will work in a college room}


While shopping for her new pretties, I have come across some great sales that I wanted to share with you. First up, Golly Bard's is offering 25% off everything in her etsy shop today. She has long been a favorite of mine and creates beautiful watercolor nature paintings. 
 


Serena and Lily are having a private sale today before it hits the website tomorrow. There are some awesome discounts -- wallpapers are 50% off, paint is 65% off, as well as some great furniture and bedding sales. I have been watching and considering these kids chairs for a project for a while. Now on sale!

 


Lindsay Letters has extended her 'Christmas in July' sale and has some fun holiday prints and cute t-shirts at great prices. 





And while on the computer finding these great deals, I have had a bit of a peeping Tom {cat}.....


I title this one "Kitty Purry does curtains'

And now that this view has been discovered, the curtain rod has a new best friend. They hang out together.
 a lot. 

Have you discovered any great sales? Let me know!!




Cashiers Showhouse 2014

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

I haven't told you guys, but I am a designer in this years Cashiers Designer Showhouse that is sponsored by Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Magazine! woot-woot! 




I will be designing a 'Teen Retreat' and I am super excited about the fun stuff I have found {and wait until you see the walls!!!!}. The house opens on August 23rd and ends on the August 31st. If you a regular attendee of the Showhouse, note that this year the house is open for a shorter length of time. 



  
The inside is going to be wonderfully inspiring with the hard work of 23 creative designers and artists. And not to be overshadowed, take a look at God's handiwork through an exterior view from the back of the house!! uh-maze-ing! Thirteen landscapers are just beginning to create some phenomenal plantings and landscaped areas on the sprawling estate. 

Once you have walked through the house and the property, make sure to check out the 2 shops featuring 25  {mostly local} boutique owners selling jewelry, antiques, clothing, accessories, books, plants, and more. I always find THE best stuff at the Showhouse shops!

You will definitely want to come hungry, sit overlooking Whiteside Mountain, and enjoy lunch served daily at the Showhouse Cafe from 11:30-1:30. {bring a jacket, it's a bit breezy!} 

For more info, check out The Cashiers Historical site or call #828-743-7710. And let me know if you are planning to attend!!
