Let there be light


While my husband and I agree that we have some hideous light fixtures in our house, I'm not so sure this vintage red chandelier from Jayson Garden & Home would win the committee vote.   But I love it.

Have you ever had one of these days? I've had one of these weeks.  Ready to be creative again.

"I can't let you have bad coffee.."

These were the first words we heard from Kurtis of Tybee Island Social Club on Sunday morning.  We were on the island for the weekend, and I had read that their coffee bar had opened. It will, but it's not quite there yet.  Instead of pointing us in the direction of Chu's Convenience Store to get our caffeine fix, Kurtis went inside and made us a couple of cups to go.  He had us at hello.  We were back for a fabulous lunch and a wine tasting and never wanted to leave.  When we came back for our second and third times, we got to meet Sarah, a beauty who is just as charming as Kurtis, and the eye behind the well-appointed space that would make India Hicks envious. We will hurry back.

For reals?

I am on the hunt for a long, green dress for a St. Patrick's Day p-rade. Since most will be wearing fancy with sequins and lace, I thought I would turn things up a notch with a vintage 70's Halston a la Rachel Zoe, stolen from eBay for pennies on the dollar.  Dream on - my $15 bargain sold for $455 tonight. Oh my.

Help me  - where can I find vintage on the cheap?

Me, not them. How have I missed this brand until now? Go Anthropologie.

So here's me struggling over Blogger 101 and Photoshop for Dummies, and then I stumble upon a blog so beautiful as this. Bri Emery, all I can say is "wow." Via Wit + Delight, another lovely site.
