a little glitter to start your week....



It's inevitable..
along with the budding of flowers...
come bugs...
I've already seen a few of my polka dotted ladies appearing in my bathroom window...
But I dare say...
I am happy to make room for some creepy crawlies.
especially if they are glittery and golden..
if it means that my scented ladies shall appear..

Happy Weekend!!!

Happy Weekend Everyone!!!

March...
You big giant fibber..
You were supposed to come in like a lion and out like a lamb...
I feel robbed, bamboozled and even hornswoggled...
But what's a girl to do??
I guess..
Make this little blog as Springy as Springy can be...
There will be flowers, bunnies and perhaps something new...
I might even backtrack and start posting work as
I am behind a year or two.. 
So think Spring with all your might..
and who knows..
Someone may be listening and turn things right...
 
Be Safe, Think Spring and Have a Great Weekend!!!

Glitter..Southern Style...

One of the most important things in life is the love of friends..
One of the best things in life is when you get to jump for JOY and shout HOORAY when they have accomplished something great!
This morning is no exception...
One of my former brides..
The lovliest of lovlies..
Miss Tami Rekas
(you know..that beauty from Southern Weddings Magazine)
has embarked on the adventure of becoming a wedding planner/stylist and
has formed the company 
(more on this later)
located in New York and Virginia...
What started as clients quickly became friends and now even more exciting..
collaborator..
My heart has certainly skipped a beat...
So..
 last year when she brought her clients Sarah & Ashby to my door..
I couldn't have been more ecstatic!
They allowed us crazy designers to convince them that
gold, glitter, stripes and florals were the way to go...
We couldn't have been luckier..
AND
as luck would have it...
Style Me Pretty thought it was pretty awesome too..
So go check it out my friends...

Shout a BIG hooray for Sarah &  Ashby..
Jump for JOY for Miss Tami Rekas..
This is just the beginning my lovely Southern Sister...
Your grace, wit, warmth, artistry and unmistakable Southern Charm
not only has won MY heart..
but will win the heart of others..

Friends..
This is certainly..
 one lady to watch...

Happy Weekend!!

Happy Weekend Everyone!!

I spent the most glorious first day of Spring romping, running and swinging with my boys at our most favorite place on earth...
It was heavenly..
To smell treasures from the sea washed ashore ..
To feel the newly thawed earth gently move under our feet..
 To see tiny green shoots emerge through rusty brittle leaves..
To taste the salty sea on our lips..
To hear  the sound of waves lapping against the deserted beach..

It was just enough to get my battery going once again...
You see..
 I need ALL my energy in the next coming weeks to create a fabulous wedding invitation suite for the lovely Michaela & Mike..
And..
even though I may be inside watching these early Spring days through my window..
with every cut to the paper..
I will be dreaming of..
 warm gentle breezes under a summer starry sky listening to the sounds of laughter while breathing in the salty sea air of Cape Cod..
 
 Be Safe, Spring Ahead and Have a Great Weekend!!

Happy Weekend!!

Happy Weekend Everyone!!!

It's Official...
I'm DONE..
Done with Mother Nature and her Polar Vortex..
Done with freezing temperatures..
Done with snow, hail and sleet..
Done with watching the Tall One have a heart attack over the many oil deliveries..
Done with white tipped fingers and toes...
DONE. DONE. DONE. 

Luckily..
This weekend we will be keeping warm and toasty..
There will be a cake with many, many, many, many, very, very, very tall candles flickering to keep us warm..
 I dare say..
I am a bit envious for what the Monster and I have in store for the Tall One..
Even though he may not want to eat a slice of cake as he has become quite the born again health guru..
That just means there is more for the Monster and I...


Be Safe, Make a Wish and Have a Great Weekend!!

Happy Weekend!!

Happy Weekend Everyone!!

It's Time..It's Time...
Time to Spring ahead..
Time to dream of open toed shoes..
(almost) Time to get rid of those cumbersome winter boots..
Time to start Spring Shopping...
Time for Spring cleaning..
and
Time to finally shed those Winter layers..

Even though I know Mother Nature will simply disregard it..
in 2 short weeks..
it WILL be official..
SPRING!! 

After this utterly gruesome Winter..
I dare say I will be extremely grateful for this Spring..
Maybe that was her plan all along...

Be Safe, Spring Ahead and Have a Great  Weekend!!
