Musings in March


It’s March 26, and my birthday month continues. This week, I received two special treats from friends. I love when packages arrive in the mail or a box is awaiting my arrival near the front door.

The first gift was from one of my best beach buds, Jenn! She knows me well and knows I need a great beach bag to carry all my paraphernalia.

Beach Bag

Born and Raised Southern” on burlap! Yes, indeed!

The second “treat” is from my bestie Amanda of Dixie Delights. The two of us have been friends for such a long time.



A monogrammed Savannah, Georgia candle and Vineyard Vines- inspired notepad are perfectly me.

A student brought me a bag of my fave Reese’s peanut butter cups recently. Get them away before I eat every one of them.


Dry skin? I love Japanese Quince Hand Lotion.


Spring is upon us, and I am LOVING wearing my newest K-Swiss Keds from Billy Reid. Who remembers K-Swiss? I do!

Happy Spring, y’all! {Spring Blog Hop}


I am very happy to be part of such a great group participating in the Spring Blog Hop.

I love the Spring season with the hints of green, comfortable temperatures, and scent-filled air. Here along my New Orleans walks, smells of sweet olive, azaleas, and gardenias fill the air.

Today, I’d like to share my Spring touches with you.

Come on in!

come on in spring 2015

I find it hard for me to decorate very “Eastery” because I am not a huge fan of pastel colors, so I try and incorporate classic colors and natural elements in my Spring decor.

On the entrance table, I added marbleized gold gilded eggs in the English oak bowl.

In the stair parlor, the center arrangement features magnolia branches, palmetto leaves, hydrangea blooms, and agapanthus.
