Happy Turkey Day!

I am thankful for these 3 turkeys...
1. My wonderful husband
2. My beautiful baby girl
3. Reg's first was so yummy! We had no clue what we were doing, but it was a huge hit with the whole family!
I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving! I for one, have so much to be thankful for and I count my blessing everyday!

Hidden Offices

I have always LOVED this room from Cottage Living. It is perfect in every way! My favorite part about this living room is the his & her offices. The built-in desk and bookcases are tucked away and can be hidden by the sliding doors...perfect for hiding clutter from guest. I just love the fact that they integrated the work spaces into the living room! The star lanterns and blue wicker chairs really jazz up the space too. I give this room an A+!

While Annie and I were out running errands today, a man stopped me and asked if I had just cut my babies hair or if she was really that bald. I mean seriously, did he think I shaved my baby's head?!! The man was dead serious too. I swear...some people! I think bald is beautiful, and Annie is the most beautiful baby in the world (not that I'm biased or anything)!

On another note, I found a pair of super cool lamps at Scotts this past week. They are in a sense bald as well, because I have yet to find shades for them. What do you think?

Have a great week!

I'm sorry for the lack of posts lately, but life has been pretty crazy the past couple of weeks! Annie was baptized this past Sunday and we had a luncheon at our house afterwards with 50 people. Everything was absolutely perfect and Annie was an angel! It was so special to worship and celebrate with family and friends on this very important day in Annie's life.

She just melts my heart and makes me forget all my worries! Thank God for my baby girl!
On top of preparing for the luncheon last week, my computer crashed...again. This time it's for good :(. We took it to the Geek Squad and they said they couldn't even recover the images from my hard drive. We are getting a 2nd opinion, so keep your fingers crossed that all my photo files can be recovered....that is all I care about! Needless to say, this is the main reason for my lack of post. I'm now using my husbands old computer and trying to rebuild my "inspiration" file with beautiful photos for the the blog!

With all the craziness in my life right now, I just want to escape to this beautiful bathroom and soak in the tub and gaze out the window and day dream. This bathroom was designed by Keith Summerour for his personal Meriweather country retreat. Isn't it dreamy?!

ATL Estate Sale

To all you Atlantans, there is a HUGE estate sale tomorrow through Saturday at 9 Vernon Road. The best part about this estate sale is that the proceeds benefit the Atlanta Pet Rescue and Adoption, a no-kill animal shelter for homeless, abused and neglected pets. This estate is filled with tons of treasures! I am most looking forward to digging through the enormous collection of books including vintage first editions..ooh la la. Check out the website for the sale at

The Gazebo Project and a Birthday Celebration

For the past 3 months, I have been working with my in-laws on their awesome gazebo that they have built in their backyard by the pool. The gazebo is complete and we are now just waiting on the draperies, dining chair cushions, and hosts chairs to come in. This is a rendering of the room by their architect, Daly Smith. I can't wait to show y'all the finished product once everything is installed. It is gorgeous!
We celebrated Claude's 80th birthday, my husband's grandmother, on Sunday night. It was a wonderful celebration!! Most of Reg's family was there, and we all gathered outside in the gazebo to celebrate. Above is a picture of Annie with her great grandmother, Claude, sitting in the Curacao Club Chairs from Walters Wicker that were installed just in time for the party. We ordered 4 of these chairs and they are circled around the fireplace. We needed something small, but super comfortable and these chairs were perfect! Hopefully the room will be complete by Thanksgiving...stay tuned! The Curacao Club Chair from Walters Wicker

The fam! Happy 80th birthday Claude!
