Changes

What do you think? Do you like my new look? I am very excited and have two people to thank. First is Jenny from My Favorite and My Best. She had a new blog banner designed for her website and I loved it which led me to Elizabeth Surette and Salt Life Designs. It was funny (to me, I am sure not to Elizabeth), but in her post about designing the new banner Jenny talks about how she kept changing and tweaking things. I thought "Oh no, not me. I am going to be so easy to work with. We will spit this right out." Well, not so much. Guess who was a big pain in the fanny? Yours truly. I have to give it to Elizabeth, her patience is endless. Must come from her background in Real Estate. I know because I used to sell Real Estate and dang, people can drive you crazy!!





Make sure you check out Elizabeth's Etsy shop here. And her blog here. Did you know Elizabeth's sister is Anne Harwell from Annechovie? Pretty talented family, huh? Elizabeth, thank you again!! I promise I am not as crazy in person as I probably sounded in my e-mails!


Now, I have a few other things I need to take care of..

1. I did a post and mentioned my favorite new magazine Canadian House & Home and forgot to link back to their site. I love the magazine and want to support it as much as possible, so when you get a chance check them out here.

2. On Tuesday I did a post about camp and had several people who wanted to join me for my trip to Thom Filica's lake house. I haven't heard back yet, but I am sure he is just checking his schedule. I will let you know as soon as I have a date. We will have a blast. Can't wait to meet you all! So far I have: Tarheel, MB, Kara, Design Esquire , Urban Sardines, Delightful and Delovely and Blueprint Bliss. Did I miss anyone?

3. There is another Big South Auction this weekend. Sunday July 26th 12-6. If you live in Wilmington stop by and check out the great deals. Here are a few items that caught my eye.




Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Oh Sissy, your banner's great- I love it! I will ask you something about it later. Of course that auction is on the day we're taking Eloise to camp {not that I was actually going to attend it}, BUT that chair and those tables are fabulous and would be perfect in my house. And they match your banner. xo

  10. I love the new banner! That is one talented family! I was also picky when I had my blog spruced up (much to my own surprise), so you're not the only one :)

    And thank you for the mention! I will clear my calendar when Thom gets back to you. P.S. After your post, I ordered Canadian House and home - thanks for the kick in the pants to finally subscribe! I needed it.
