Trunk Shows in North Carolina

I am back to reality after my super fun week long road trip to North Carolina.  For the first time though, I felt those long hours in the car.  I kept having to stop and walk around..I guess getting old is not so much fun lol.  First stop was my parents house in Amelia Island.  I got there late Friday night and reunited with my little friend Maisie.  She is so darling and energetic.  Of course, seeing my parents was fun as well.

























When I packed up from this show, I headed back to Statesville and straight to Devon's house.  She invited a few friends to come and shop.  That was the icing on the cake for this trip.  Lots of fun girls buying jewels and drinking wine. 



All in all, the most fabulous trip.  So thankful for all my gracious hosts, Heather, Karen and Devon.  I am also so grateful to my friend Pam for letting me stay with her the whole week!  What a great time.

Next trip..Nantucket!

New Branding

A few months ago, I decided to finally work on my re-branding for my business.  I knew I wanted to change everything from my logo and packaging and everything in between.  The branding guru these days is Emily McCarthy.  She is out of Savannah and if you check out her website, her growing list of branding clientele is truly spectacular.  By the time I had my first phone call with her to discuss what I wanted, I think I must have logged 50 hours looking at her logo client page. Our first phone call was quick and it felt like I was talking to one of my friends, she is so nice and had great suggestions.  The biggest one was to change my base color to kelly green.  I love green (usually mixed with pink) but this would give me some flexibility with my packaging, being able to mix different color ribbon depending on my situation.  We ran with green and soon I had my first logo proof.  Several proofs down the road, she came up with this one-which I am in love with.  Before you ask why two k's and not kp, we tried and tried and it just didn't work. I have started getting things printed and everything looks amazing.



The custom ribbon is so fun.  I can't wait to get the white with gold and the pink made up!



The shopping bag with the logo in gold is one of my favorite parts of the package.  I am researching now where to order these from...and the wrapping paper- I die over this.  I might use this pattern for custom tissue paper.  I love it all!!!!

Check out a sneak peek of my new website...


I am still working on it and am about to start loading up products.  My goal is to unveil in August.

Exciting things happening these days,

Newport Flower Show

So, if I wasn't lucky enough to be in Aspen this week, my second choice would be in Newport for the Newport Flower Show.  Held at beautiful Rosecliff, this yearly event is kind of the start to the summer.  Inside are flower displays and tablescapes filled with the most beautiful flowers you have ever seen.  I die over the pink and white awnings.  This year, many designers filled their instagram feeds with pictures of all the events..I have borrowed a few here..

It is so beautiful here..I can't wait to see everything.

Beautiful Use of Blue and White

I came across this feature in Traditional Home with an Illinois home decorated with lots of navy and white.  So many of the rooms are so beautiful..I love most of them. The mix of textures, fabrics and blue and white Chinese porcelain is amazing..I am obsessed!  Designed by Megan Winters.






















Gorgeous in blue and white,
