Where I've Been Lately

2013 is going to be good if it's anything like the past two months.  I cannot believe that March is almost here!


We installed a client's "big girl" room and play room...can't wait to share more pictures.


Went to Harbour Island, Bahamas for a friend's wedding.  Needless to say, it was amazing.


Enjoying the view..

I'd say that's a pretty fresh lunch!


Loving the details.


Charming Anglican Church where my friend's wedding was held.


One of the many adorable homes in Dunmore Town.


Dinner at The Landing.


Fishing docks.


Back home, our sweet baby Frances turned ONE.  I still cannot believe it!


I've been out shopping for projects.

Watercolors by Susan Hable at Bungalow.



Love this side table by Bobby McAlpine for MaCrae at Holland & Company.


Monograms galore at Gramercy.


There are quite a few babies arriving in March!  We celebrated baby McFadden with an adorable shower in Athens.


And installed baby O's room just in time for her any-day-now arrival. :)

We are off to a great start!  I am heading out of town tomorrow so I'm sure I will have more to share soon.  Have a great week!





If you're not familiar-Scott's Market is held once a month in Atlanta.  It's where hundreds of dealers of all types come together to sell almost anything.  Antiques, art, silver, you name it.  I usually go with a handful of projects in mind, on the lookout for a unique piece to finish one or start another.  I tend to be attracted to the pieces in need of a little makeover.

Some objects of interest from this month's excursion:


Lamps galore.


Scott's is a good place to find accent chairs like this rattan one (ready for a makeover) below:


More fun chairs & a table- a little paint and new upholstery can go a long way with these.



Good looking colors in this suzani.


Of course we found the perfect acrylic stools that had ALREADY SOLD :(. 


They would have been great for extra seating in a stylish living room like this one by Stephen Gambrel:


Still upset about losing those stools! 

We are in the midst of installs.  Stick around for some good before/after room shots.

Modern Kid Accessories

I'm loving all of the fun kid and baby stuff out there!  Not sure if there is more on the market, or if I'm noticing because of my own little angel, but there really are some great products.  This is a compilation of fun modern kid items that I've found, Christmas gifts?  Would look great in a big kid room, nursery, or playroom.

Frances is really growing up fast!  I can't believe it's been nine months since I have shared a picture of her:

(In her Halloween costume)  Time flies!


Have a great weekend!
