i discovered garlic flowers at the farmers market last weekend and was enamored with their crazy organic shape, PLUS you can pluck the little buds right off the flower and add them to your food for instant gratification.  love.

rowdy discovered that if he sits just like this with his ball it really infuriates his brother.

we're doing a lot of vintage shopping for two of our current decorating projects.  loved this native american art at union camp

dusted off the fabric swatches this week and started scheming again.  really excited to have several new projects in the works!

also very excited to discover lotus blossoms in our tiny pond this week.  they only open during the day, and there's 3 more on their way up!
we just got a massive shipment of amazing rugs in -- this is how my phone's photo album ends up looking.

my favorite from this batch - the sally oushak.

a quick visit to winston salem.  i love staying at the cardinal downtown.  it's a kimpton hotel - pet friendly, the bathroom is all waterworks and lots of thoughtful details like the custom toile pillow with cardinals (our state bird) and the magnolia above the bed
the pups enjoyed their view

one of my favorite stories to follow on IG is dorothy shain.  i've loved keeping us with her collaboration with mac & murphy down in charleston.  i'm dying to get my hands on some of those cute notecards.

scenes from my birthday party.  the first thing i told everyone before dinner was DON'T GET ON THE TABLE.  then i got on the table.

i finished the last piece of cake last night.  i love birthday season - it's totally acceptable to eat cake every night.

roses are blooming in the backyard - how pretty are these pinks?

a few birthday gifts - joan didion book is fantastic, the peonies from jessica have lasted forever, and the malin  + goetz candle from my friend bryan at holder goods smells amazing

just a collection of my travel momento miscellany

i brought home a silk ikat shade this week (they're so good looking, and on sale - people, they change lives, i promise!)

my other birthday flowers are still happy with a fresh cut everyday.  the artwork is by my friend, LA artist mat curran
boulted bread is the hookup for a ready to go brunch.  we picked up all the things sunday morning and didn't have to cook a bit.

and some major eye candy from the farmer's market.  fresh bouquets for $15


  1. Your house is looking great! I have never stayed at the Cardinal, but it looks fun. By the way, I think our state flower is the Dogwood, though perhaps it should be the Magnolia.

  2. Great pics! Can't wait to see more shots of your home. It looks beautiful.
