Five on Friday!


Okay, yes I'm a baby when it comes to cold weather. I realize that Savannah, GA doesn't get all THAT cold in comparison to the rest of the country, but this past week has been my own little weather nightmare! Highs at 50 is not okay with this girl. But, how beautiful is Wormsloe Plantation even so? Gorgeous even in winter. Man, I love living on Isle of Hope! 


 TWO- My ALMOST 1 year old?

How did this happen? If I'm being honest though, this has been the longest, but the greatest, year of my life. A lot of my friends feel like the first year flew by, I feel like it's been forever since I had this little girl. And yet at the same time, it is as if I've known her all my life. In any event, she's turning one in three short weeks! We are planning to do a small family gathering (well technically anything involving my huge family can't be small) to celebrate. Love my little Evans.


Parenthood is probably my favorite show on TV right now, even though it makes me cry every Thursday. I can't believe this is the farewell season! Christina is my favorite character. She's such the MOM's MOM, right? The type of mom we all aspire to be? I will be so sad when the show ends. Four episodes left, are you kidding me?! TEAM JOEL!


I've added some new art to my shop, and have been able to finish up several commissions. Thank you all again for letting me share my work. It's an honor as an artist for someone to choose your vision to be a part of their home. XO

FIVE- Turkey Day!

The last two years we've had to miss out on a Savannah Thanksgiving. Last year, I was 39 weeks pregnant and living in Atlanta. The year before that, our dog Blakely girl was having surgery. I'm so excited that we will be in attendance this year, and that the drive is way shorter now that we actually live here!! YEA! I look forward to all the food, and I've also been dying to try one of the cocktails floating around Pinterest. Have y'all tried any? 


Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Furniture Arrived

My parents' new bedroom is still needing some styling and accessorizing done, but the space is at least functional now. My mom said they are staying in there now and loving it. I am so glad, they are so deserving of a nice new space. They work so hard when they should both be retired and loving it! ;) 

Here's a few quick pictures of the progress!

Most of the furniture is from WhitAsh in Columbia, SC. My dad has made a couple pieces for the room, including this table which is still in progress. 

Hoping to help them finalize the room in the next couple of weeks so it can officially be finished! I'll be sure to do a full source list then. 

Anyone else working on a renovation? Isn't it exciting to see it come to life!

One Kings Lane: Accent Chairs

Recently, One Kings Lane asked me to talk about my personal favorites as far as accent chairs go. I have to admit I was slightly stumped. I'm always pretty stumped when asked to name a favorite anything. Favorite song, favorite movie, favorite food... I feel like the answer is always changing depending on the day. However, when I really thought about what I want in a chair three things came to mind. Comfort, conversation, and of course PRETTY. Furniture can't just be functional, it's gotta be pretty, too.

I browsed through One Kings Lane's extensive collection of accent chairs (updated DAILY, oh the possibilities!) and landed on this beauty. It's the Dover Linen Chair in charcoal. Be still my little heart. While this chair seems completely versatile to me, I imagine it in a master bedroom suite. Maybe when we build our dream home down here in Savannah, I will get to welcome a similar lovebug to our master bedroom. One day!

Here's a mood board drawn from the chair and some other OKL gems I'm loving right now.

I think accent chairs should be comfortable to sit in so you can enjoy your coffee, read a book, or have a good conversation with equally good company. Whether it be a chair pulled up by a fireplace, cozied in the corner of a library, or gracing your bedroom, accent chairs are an important piece to almost every room.

Do you have a favorite?
