Invisible threads

I think my career path, has been anything but predictable. An artist/designer can lead a colorful crazy path, and as long as you are open-minded, it can take you on some amazing adventures. The true beauty of creativity is that it can be used in so many wonderful ways. I always feel so blessed to have people invite me into their lives and allow me to design their homes -- to create a personal, lovely sanctuary where their family memories will be made, their parties will be celebrated, and their dinners will be shared. It really is a trusting, personal collaboration. True friendships are often made. And then sometimes when those same families grow, and their kids become engaged, I get invited to design the most special day of their lives {!!} Right now I am working on one of those special weddings that will happen in a few short weeks. I feel so blessed to be able to share my gifts with those in my life and look forward to a future of stretched threads full of new projects. 
If you have a special event coming up and want it to be fabulous, let's talk! 

Happy Memorial Day

Perfect peonies

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

The combination of our gentle showers and beautiful sunshine has made easy care of my flowering perennials. The happiest time of spring for me, is when my peonies are in bloom. They only linger for a week or two, and they are hitting full stride right now. It's amazing to me how much the landscape changes simply overnight. Around 8pm, the sunlight lays heavy and warm on the opening flower petals and it's such a treat to walk through the yard, soak it in, and continue to be amazed at the artist above! It was this time, last night, that I captured these images. Grab some sweet tea and I'll show you around!

Along with the peonies, the rhododendrons, native azaleas, and irises are also blooming. The hostas are literally growing before my eyes and the ground by the creek is covered in thick velvet green moss.   

Put a letter on it

Excuse me while I get real southern with ya.

Love these monogrammed belts designed by Kristin Henchel Designs. She offers tons of designs that can be printed or embroidered in her etsy shop.

Or if you want your monogram a little closer to your heart, then check out these sweet necklaces that are hand made by Danielle in her shop, Merriweather Council.

Wouldn't these be fun bridesmaids gifts?

'Cause when you're southern, you use them everywhere you can.'
