MY (NOT SO) SECRET WEAPON FOR INCREDIBLE FERNS ALL SUMMER LONG

Whenever someone comes to my house for the first time during the summer months, they always know which one is mine by the ginormous ferns flanking my front door! For me, it’s just not summer without these quintessential southern beauties; when I first moved here from the northeast, my neighbor laughingly told me it was…

BUDGET-FRIENDLY PRETTIES FOR THE KITCHEN

Over the past couple months, I’ve been slowly clearing out closets, cabinets and pantries and getting rid of/donating quite a lot of junk that I just don’t need anymore. Making space has improved my whole outlook toward my home and how I am able to function in it and it’s been so therapeutic tossing things…

ALFRESCO DINING FAVORITES

Since the weather has been so gorgeous and the pollen has finally cleared out, we’ve been eating as many meals as possible on the deck and it’s been glorious! The kids love it because they get to be outside and I love it because I get to use more of my favorite entertaining pieces! The…

TO PAINT OR NOT TO PAINT? NEW COUNTER STOOLS FROM ONE KINGS LANE

The past few months I’ve been beating feet and FINALLY getting to all the little cosmetic updates I’ve been wanting to tackle around here the past year and, for someone who is constantly starting projects but rarely finishing them, I can’t tell you how good it feels every time I cross another one off my…

SPRING ENTERTAINING FAVORITES

Spring is in full effect here in the south and there’s nothing I love more than throwing something on the grill, whipping up a batch of cocktails and having a few friends over for a poolside dinner! While I like to keep the food and drinks super simple, I still love going all out on…

BEAUTIFUL COFFEE TABLE BOOKS FOR MOM

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I can’t think of someone more deserving of a little something nice than all the momma’s I know! A guilty pleasure for me and a lot of my friends is a beautiful coffee table book; it makes the perfect gift because it’s something I know many of…

A FRESH TABLESETTING FOR SPRING + AN EASY ALTERNATIVE FOR A FLORAL CENTERPIECE

One of my favorite quick fixes for a table centerpiece when it’s slim pickings in the floral department, or as I’m anxiously awaiting my garden to bloom, is to pull pots of garden flowers from the porch and patio in and onto the table. It’s such an easy way to add fresh color and greenery…

SPRING HAS SPRUNG!

It’s been a long time since I’ve popped in here on the blog, but with the change in the weather the last couple months, I feel refreshed and ready to get back to regular posting! As usual here in the south, we have three or four days of spring–like weather and then the heat creeps…

FOUR NON-FLORAL, EVERY DAY CENTERPIECE IDEAS FOR THE TABLE

Setting a beautiful table is a simple luxury that brings me so much joy and that I look forward to every day-especially now that my little miss is so into helping – but this time of year when it’s slim pickings in the floral section of almost every grocery store (yes, even you, Trader Joe’s),…

THE COOK’S ATELIER + FRENCH-INSPIRED PRETTIES FOR THE KITCHEN

One of the questions I’ve gotten a lot recently is what are some of my favorite cookbooks. There are two requirements for me to really, really love a cookbook and they are: one, healthy recipes that are delicious and super quick and easy to execute and two, beautiful photography. I’m not just talking about the…

LOVING LATELY ON ETSY

Etsy has come a long way from what initially was like searching for a needle in a haystack (for me, at least) and is now one of my go-to stops for one-of-a-kind and antique finds! One of the hardest parts of going under lockdown last spring was watching so many small businesses struggle to stay…

NEW YEAR, NEW (OLD) CHAIRS

I’ve never really been one for new year resolutions, but there is always a running list of things I like to tackle and change up around the house this time of year and 2021 is no exception. First up is a new set of chairs for our breakfast table. I absolutely LOVED the French bistro…
