new cuteness has arrived

We just got a shipment of adorable Japanese goodies. Pin cushion/scissor holder birdies, little vases shaped like spools (modeled by my new shop girl), mushroom pushpins, card holders and magnets. We also got a great shipment of twine from a fair trade company out of India. Yum.

ahhhh spring

Thought I would share an early bloomer from my garden with all you northeners. I hope you can dig out of all that snow really soon and enjoy some blooms of your own.

my house was full of rings and charms and pretty birds

Most people purchase music online and never venture into a store to actually buy a CD but I have to admit this is one I wanted to physically, not just virtually, own.  I have now listened to it so much that my three year old is singing Gone, gone, gone.  

Where do I begin?  I think I can thank my older brother for properly introducing me to Led Zeppelin and the film Oh Brother for introducing me to Alison Kraus.  Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined what magic the duo could create.  If I were more tech savvy I would have it playing for your listening pleasure.  My suggestion?  Go to itunes and have a listen for yourself.  

Beyond the Pale, BH&G Feature

Last October I participated in the Savannah College of Art & Design Alumni Design Show House. I am just getting around to sharing it with you because Better Homes and Gardens Magazine photographed it and until it was published I thought it wise not to show any of the images of the space. So now that it is on the news stands I couldn't wait to give you a peek.

This is the cover and the first page of the three page feature. The pictures that follow were taken by me or Anthony Masterson Photography. Enjoy.
