but just could not resist these adorable vintage tree trimmings!

in high cotton...

This is a pic of my little nephew in a cotton field in the south - my mom picked cotton on my grandparent's farm when she was young and got paid 5 cent a sack. She is quite a lady and knows the value of a dollar. I learned a lot of my resourcefulness from my upbringing and I am glad that I had the opportunity to spend all those summers on the farm!!
Thought y'all would enjoy this pic and hope y'all spend your week
in high cotton!

I want this....

... I would pack my bags today if I had the "chunk of change" it takes to buy this house. I could ship my pillows from here! Sally Lee by the sea has featured this beautiful Tybee Island home on her blog today - it is so dreamy! Click on any of the pics and read the entire post and see more fab pics on Sally Lee's blog.

Notice the chairs have my monogram on them - it is meant to be!

Imagine waking up in this bed every morning!

I love a white kitchen!!

And y'all know the porch is my favorite room in the house!

Thanks for stopping in and hope your day is just dreamy!!!

Gooder Than Grits...

... Volume 3 of Southern Weddings Magazine is on newsstands tomorrow and I would be telling a whopper if I said that I had not been counting the days down along with their crew and readers. I had a priority package in my mailbox today when I got home along with a sweet note from the girls - and y'all know I gotta share this! Turns out my little ring bearer pillow is on page 15 at the top of the page - yippee! They said it best... it's gooder than grits!

Button Flower Bouquets

What is more fun than a barrell full of monkeys....a tin of vintage buttons. Hurley and I tried our hand at making button flowers and we are so happy with the results. It was so much fun and I will never look at buttons in the same way. Most everyone used to have a button tin or jar in their home - it is amazing the story a jar of buttons could tell if they could talk. I bought this cute little tin on etsy and it came full of vintage buttons, so we got out the wire and cutters and got started. Took us most of the day, but we filled all the old bottles we had. We sat back with sore fingers and admired our work - our initial reaction to selling them is Nay! - but we might make some to list later - hope you enjoy looking at them as much as we did making them...
