Hop on Over

Illustration by David Siglin via D*S

So I hop on over to Design Sponge this morning and what do I see? A greenville, sc city guide, written by the famously talented David and Rachel Siglin,  thats what! I grew up 20 minutes from Greenville, and it stole my heart. The hubs and I want to eventually end up back  in Greenville, and some of my favorite people in the world are from Greenville (Riley, you listening??) The city guide is packed with great places to eat, drink and mingle. And as a side note, I must be a pretty hip person, because a lot of the places on the list were already on my favorite places to visit. Liquid Highway, Larkins, Coffee Underground, Falls Park, Mayme Baker Studio, Postcard from Paris, and Smoke on the Water to name a few. So go visit design sponge and write down some fun places to visit!

Happy Thanksgiving Ya'll!

Happy Turkey Day! Me and the hubs are heading to Mississippi tomorrow to visit with his family, and will be flying (along with everyone in the entire United States), and to top off the busiet travel day of the year, out plane leaves super early. Not excited. But I am excited to visit with his family and eat my body weight in macaroni and cheese and stuffing. Yay! What are ya'lls plans?

How much do you love Eddie's Womens Day spread? I love that it was so not typical thanksgiving decor, but still very comforting and warm. And the pinecone centerpiece? Perfection.

It was an Eddie weekend...

Shopping with Eddie Ross at Metrolina was amazing. Absolutely amazing. I would have followed him around ALL day if that wasn't stalking. It was so interesting and informative to see how someone with such a great eye and such a gift for design works. He pulled inspiration everywhere, and had a knack for seeing the true potential in things. He had me looking at simple things in a new light, like getting a vintage blanket framed in plexi-glass to use as one of a kind headboard. He had great tips for holiday tablescapes, and definitely inspired me to start thinking about the holidays! But the best part about shopping with Eddie was how comfortable he and Jaithan made everyone feel- they both went out of their way to interact with all 20 or so of us on the trip.

I didn't want to creep him out and take hundreds of pictures of him while he was talking- but I did manage to sneak a few!

Riley and I with Eddie and Jaithan. Photo op!
And the work crew - Riley was kind enough to point out that I look like a midget. thanks Roo.

After we finished up and reluctantly left Eddie and Jaithan alone to recoup, Riley and I ate an amazing and healthy lunch of corn dogs and cheese fries. Then we started shopping.
I wanted this chest so badly for my dining room!

Love the fun pendants. And do you see those sconces on the wall? Made out of animal horns! We looked at this rug for Riley's lake house- beautiful! And below is Roo modeling some fun retro dining chairs.

I should mention Eddie's knack at knowing the true value of things and major talent of getting people to lower prices, ( I ended getting 25-50% off everything I bought when I mentioned that I was with Eddie!) I spent forever pouring over some vintage glasses at one of Eddie's favorite vendors, and ended up buying some beautiful glasses for my sideboard in my dining room.

These egg prints will go perfectly in my living room. They have a relaxed vibe with some great colors. Can't wait to show you how I am going to mat these!

The speckled egg is my favorite.

So to recap. Amazing weekend. Totally worth it. Thank you Eddie and Jaithan for an amazing time!

Come eat at my house...

Since I am working on our dining room right now, I am finding that most of the images going into my design files are dining spaces. Here are a few of my favorites for your Monday. Update on my AMAZING weekend coming soon!!!

Might be my fav. So warm.

Love the rug and the drapes.
More traditional than I am normally drawn to, but love the slipcovered chairs. I think that might be what I end up doing in my space. via lonny

how fun are these slipcovered chairs?
