Making Progress......

God this was a pain!! But so worth it. I chose "China Blue" by Benjamin Moore and I love how it turned out!!!



My amazing mother just bought me the above headboard from Pottery Barn for my master bedroom. I love it, but the color is off and clashes with my white dresser (the headboard color is an off-white). I want to paint it light blue, but I've never done this before. Tips!?? I don't want to ruin it!!! Any help would be greatly appreciated!!


Project Terrace Complete.......

So reality trumped fantasy with my outdoor pillow project. We are throwing a 4th of July party and I didn't have enough time to order custom pillows for my sectional. Thank God for West Elm. I found adorable outdoor pillows there, plus they were on SALE!! All of my pillows, covers and inserts, for under a hundred dollars. Yay! More money for shoes :)

Speaking of 4th of July, I've been shopping and planning like a mad woman.......total Martha style. I'm even making my guests wear red, white and blue. I know, get a life!! Ha....

What are your 4th of July plans? Hope it's a great one!!

Summer, Summer, Summertime......

We just got back from visiting my in-laws, who live on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina (it was HOT!!! ugh). Every time I visit I always pray to run into one of Paula Deen's hot sons, but this time I discovered something even better.....Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka!! Each restaurant we went to seemed to have a special drink concoction using this amazing product. I have always been a fan of the Arnold Palmer, but this addition makes it even better! (although this is not calorie free, so you better stick to one) Luckily for the rest of the country, BevMo now stocks it! I just bought some to serve with lemonade at my 4th of July party, does it get more summer than lemonade and (vodka) iced tea? Cheers!!

The sunsets alone are worth the visit!

More HHI area faves:

1. Truffles Cafe in Sea Pines Center (best tomato soup!)
2. Palmetto Bluff (have lunch at Buffalos and soak in the southern charm! Lots of cool history here)
3. Old Fort Pub (best restaurant on the island)
