Collector’s Corner: Glassware Favorites

April 30, 2018

It’s no surprise that I love to set the table.   I often use the glasses from my grandmother’s house in England which are our everyday — she bought so many that we all have a set.   They are simple, thin-rimmed wine glasses with an elegant shape.   I haven’t been able to find a similar set, but I think that it’s easy to use the same principal of having your foundation glassware and then padding it with fun finds: colored glass,…

Silly Dinner Party Games!

April 25, 2018

Center: wearing one of my favorite new dinner party dresses, see here! Fits like a glove. xx  I love spending time with my extended family because it’s always a riot.   We stay up late, we sing, we dance, and we play lots and lots of silly games which make us laugh until our tummies ache or someone inevitably wets their pants.   It’s lively and it’s so full of love.  My childhood was spent staying up late for these special occasions,…

Joyful Easter Table

March 30, 2018

We love celebrating the Easter weekend.    We aren’t particularly religious but it is always a time that reminds me of family and it’s a holiday that my mother did such a phenomenal job of marking, even through college she would send me some Easter treats (and this is saying something as she’s not the most organized mom — in a good way!).     This year, we’re excited to prepare an Easter basket for our little Boy with a big rabbit…

Hi All!     We’re in the middle of printing/framing our latest fine art series which will debut next week, so exciting!   We are having a show here in Charleston for the entire month of April at my favorite showroom, Fritz Porter.   It is a great honor and I will be sharing more details shortly but in the meantime, I thought I would share a quick round up of some of my favorite posts of all time 🙂   I know that…
