That was a fun fashion post with my good friends!  Cindy, Mary Ann and Annie always bring it so if you did not go check out their inspiration on spring fashion you need to....

I realize I have not posted about my project on Lake Keowee!  The client is one of my besties sister and it was so much fun as I really tried to work with a lot of what she had.  They downsized in Charlotte and what did not fit in her old house she brought to the lake.

Next up was finding something to go on the gigantic wall behind the dining table!

This was before we order the new custom table and chairs.....

Below I also added a rug to warm things up.

I sent her a lot of ideas....wallpaper, a mural, a hand painted mural, shiplap, a large piece of I need to go on?

The last thing I sent her were these bird prints.  She said is was a "maybe"...and then "crickets"....

So I kept thinking but 6 months later she texted me and said the bird prints were a go....haha.

The day I arrived to get them hung and work on 2 bedrooms!

Laying them out for the installer....

And they look SO GOOD!  Everybody was happy!

The next area to tackle was the guest room!  

She had her curtain installers hang the hardware a long time ago....  We decided to keep the bed and lamps.  Blue was the theme so lets take a look at how it went!
Below was before the curtains and shams arrived.....

I ordered 2 new nightstands...

The curtains and shams came 2 days after I left so she sent me a few pictures.....

I love the check curtains so much!

And there you have it:)  We did not completely start over but the changes created a big you agree?

I have another bedroom to show you but it is time to walk Cami now and of course she takes priority!




So I got roped into a spring fashion post...and I don't mean that in a bad way....just a "put off until the last minute way" Ha Ha.

Spring in Georgia can last a month or 2 days.  No kidding......

If you want to wear cute linen jackets and light sweaters you better not save anything cause it will be 90 degrees before you know it.

The reason I like spring and summer clothes is that they are usually less expensive and I don't mind buying something I will rarely keep it for a long time like I do with wool or nicer items.

Sunday I tried on so many outfits that by the end my hair was a mess and because I am not a type A personality I just went with it....

First up is this cute sundress which I pared with a thrifted mens suit jacket!  I probably won't get much wear out of it because it will be too hot for the jacket soon.....and you old arms might scare somebody:)

Then I got a wild hair and decided to cut off some denim that I had gotten really cheap at Gap a few years ago!

I was being really "fashion designery" and decided to leave a big cuff....not sure what I was thinking but it seemed to dress them up a little:)

The jean jacket is old Target and I thrifted the stripe sweater.  I got the sneakers a while back!

I have had this shirt forever [Banana Republic] and it has little lemons on it which I adore....The sweater is from Quince and I got the sandals from TJ Maxx!

Love it with my navy thrifted jacket and stripe shirt....what is more classic right?  

I mean let's dress it up a little!  The stripe sleeveless top is from H&M and the shirt was thrifted.  The sandals are Dolce Vita

The top is from H&M...pretty recent and the shoes are also Dolce Vita.

Below are some past OOTD post that are still a current look in my opinion....look around in your closet...I bet you can recreate all of these looks!

Even on days when I am not seeing clients I still like to make my casual clothes a little presentable:)

Below are some basics that I put together for you!  I linked everything on my Like To Know It

You are in luck today because my good friends are joining are going to have plenty of inspiration!

So check out what they have to say about Spring Fashion!



I am stuck sitting in my office while my cleaning people are I thought I would share a few things with you!

Last weekend I was invited to a beautiful wedding and it was pretty amazing!  I have to say that my client did not leave out any details!

I was in a bit of a dither about what to wear and I posted a dress on Instagram that I had ordered from Zara.  It was a stretchy little number and I was definitely thinking that it would be OK but then at the last minute I pilled out a vintage Saks overcoat which was right below the knee....

It turned out to be perfect!

I mean it was only 35.00....which is quite the steal!

Then a friend of mine offered me her vintage Chanel clutch and some earrings!  Boy was I nervous...I asked her if they were insured but she said not to worry....what?  Of course I worried!  The whole night I was checking the back of the earrings to make sure they were secure!

I was going to wear the open toe sandals but my closed toe shoes were actually more comfy so I went with them!  I had some vintage clip on shoe bows that I thought would make them a little more stylish...

These are my shoes and I found these bows on Etsy....I also found some on Amazon so get yourself some:)

I also dug out this velvet bow from probably 20 years ago because I was on a roll.....

Here is a pretty picture of the back of the brides pretty!

And the cake...

She draped the whole room in this fabric....I wish I had taken more pictures!  The band was exceptional!

And there you have it!

Before the wedding I zhushed a few things at her house....

She had this black chest at the end of a hallway....and I had it custom stenciled.....with a new larger rug!  It was a game changer.

And...I did a little accessorizing in her daughters bedroom....

Nightstand before.....

And after!

Last thing was adding some fresh flowers which always make a space shine!

Alrighty then....cleaners are done so I am off to walk Cami....



Somebody emailed me to say she missed my blog.....I miss it also.

So I need a wife to do all the things that take up my time now so I can get back to what is important:)

I have had a few small installs and one of them was this powder room....

Yes...she was a tad bit dull...just your basic builder grade bathroom.  I was excited to make this room special....

Here is my board after I decided what the heck I was gonna do!

Let's talk about the good parts of this room:

1.  I did not really have to undo it was pretty much a blank slate!

2.  The paneling was already there which I was really happy about!

I had been looking at these Josephine Munsey wallpapers and fell in love.  This one seemed perfect as it had a neutral background and after looking at some colors I decided on SW Analytical Gray to use as the color for the vanity and the paneling.

In the beginning I was almost thinking to change the  countertop and possibly faucet but after some thought I knew I could make a bigger impact adding other things to the space. 

The paneling was painted and the light fixture went up and I knew she was going to be a stunner.  If you have tall ceilings this fixture from Visual Comfort is wonderful!  It comes in a single, double and tripple and I have used it quite a few times.....

I also ordered one of my favorite mirrors from Currey and Co which I knew would be good because it has silver tones and would go nicely with the faucet.....I don't think all the metals need to match!

I picked up the small watercolors from Vickie Sides at Scott's Antique Market before I even started the project cause they were so pretty and then "bam" they were perfect!

I scored the frames while I was thrifting....remember there needs to be something old in every space to give it life!  In my opinion....

I could not be more in love with the outcome.  I rarely use a colored mat but I am so glad I went out of my comfort zone!

Here you can see that the mirror has an antique feel to it!

The towel ring is from Kohler and the larger towel is from Target!

Of course where do we get all of out soap pumps....Homegoods!

If you know me then you know I love some texture so I got the kleenex box from Target

And there you have it!  

Powder rooms are my jam and I love to give them a refresh!  Almost everyone see this space.....

Hope everyone is having a great Friday.....I had a big install on Wednesday and I will try to get a post up about that soon....

Love you guys...

Oh yeah I had a birthday and now I am 72.....not sure how I feel about that!
