    I have an odd feeling of extreme jealousy and extreme happiness for Jamie. What a doll! I am already in love with her shop and haven't even been there. It is so awesome to see people living their dream. Love. it.

    I love when one blog I read features another blog I read…small world moments just choke me up in the nicest way! Oh, and that black table's shininess makes my heart do cartwheels. Someday I WILL be in NC and I WILL see all the glory in person.

    I love Jaime! I recently saw the same Victoria Hagan lamps at Target and etagere at Homegoods (but in red). How funny! All of the pieces for your store look delectable! I am dying over the turquoise coffee table. Yummy!

    Re: The thrift store (From a month ago…) – yes, it's the one! I adore it. I'm always sad that I can't bring any major pieces back here.

    Hi–I wanted to drop by to say thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. I am loving your series "In Her Shoes". And I love I Suwanee and getting to peek into her day was just so cool. I've always dreamed about opening my own little decor shop and it's awesome to see someone in action doing it! Well, looks like I'm going to be busy today digging thru your archives and all it's great content! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Can you please let me know what brand/coloiur you used for the turquois coffee table show on this page. The coffee table looks fabulous — I’ve been wanting to do mine for a long time. Mine has a glass top and look a little like yours. Thanks for your time

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldnโ€™t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that itโ€™s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]


Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

Budget Friendly Bar Carts

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
