Some fellow Pinterest fan friends and I decided to get together and actually make some of the things we were pinning. We call ourselves the “Knick-Knack Nancys.” The concept is this: Everyone in the group has an opportunity to host. As host, you pick the project (an easy one!) and gather the supplies. Non-hosts bring a drink or snack to share and everyone has a great time, we leave learning something new and we have a gift for someone else or a decoration in hand. With the holidays upon us, we’ve got some crafting to do! First up…
Photographer Christina Wedge, who specializes in interiors and often shoots for HGTV, shot my house and it turned out beautifully! This is a teaser…. more to come!
I helped my friend Jessica Teague set up and style a model apartment at Walton on the Chattahoochee this week. When you stage a model home/apartment, it has to look like a place people can see themselves living. It must be beautiful, personal, livable and practical. This is accomplished here with plenty of light, cozy elements like throws, rugs & pillows, lots of seating. You have to show people how they can lay out their rooms after they sign their lease. Voila! Check out the progress!
My friend and amazing photographer, Christina Wedge, let me come along with her to a cool lil joint called The Goat Farm and snapped some shots while we were there. When you have a friend who is an amazing photographer, they can make you look good walking down the lane (when it’s cobblestone, you can say ‘lane’ instead of ‘sidewalk.’ fact). I recommend getting a friend like this…. or hiring Christina.
What was once an old rundown area, The Goat Farm is now an awesome rundown arts center used for good. Ah, I love a good deteriorating wall and broken window.
My lil fella turned 1. He’s not old enough to tell me what kind of party he wants and vintage robots make me swoon. Enter, Caleb’s 1st Birthday Party! (Heads up: It’s intergalactic)
