Must See TV {The Sinner}

J and I have been watching USA Network's, The Sinner, and we have been hooked. The drama is so good and suspenseful. Tonight is the season finale, and I cannot wait.

Young mother Cora Tannetti is overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage that leads her to commit a startling -- and very public -- act of violence, with no explanation as to why she did it. When Detective Harry Ambrose begins his investigation and grows obsessed with uncovering Cora's hidden motive, the two work together to try to get deep into her psyche to learn about the violent secrets that are hidden in her past. The eight-episode thriller -- which tries to uncover the "why" instead of the "who" or "what" -- stars Jessica Biel, who also serves as an executive producer, and Bill Pullman in the lead roles.

If you have not seen the series, find it! You will not be disappointed.

The Sinner, y'all!

Oakleaves, Staghorn fern, Branches!

I recently sent a bunch of branches, ferns, feathers, and curiosities to my friends at Mitch's Flowers to create a Halloween/Fall arrangement for the center stair parlor table. I love the addition of the crows and spiders which can be removed easily after Halloween. The container was purchased from Hazelnut and is a tortoise-style vase.

I do decorate for Halloween, but I do enjoy a classier version. Of course, I plan to add crows and bats to the chandelier during October.

Let the Halloween/Fall decorating commence! I hope to start the decor this coming weekend. I only wish the temperatures would cooperate, but I do not see improvement in the near future.

Ready for Halloween/Fall, y'all!

A Place to Call Home

I'm loving the new book by James Farmer, A Place to Call Home: Timeless Southern Charm. I have loved his style for a long time, and I am a fan of his home, Farmdale in southern Georgia.

From Google:
Combining the rich traditions of the past with the sensibilities of contemporary life, interior and garden designer James Farmer of Perry, Georgia, is unapologetically Southern.

Tour eleven diverse homes in the deep South—makeovers, remodels, and new construction—as James Farmer brings together a cultivated mix of high and low, storied and new, collected and found; presenting them all as a thoughtfully exhibited array of taste, style, good architecture, and interior comfort. Woven alongside beautiful photography are personal stories James shares about living in the South, the people in his life, and how he fell in love with a career of making houses into homes.

A beautiful book to inspire Southern style at home—infusing the new with antique, vintage, and heirloom pieces.

James Farmer is of the author of A Time to Plant, A Time to Cook, A Time to Celebrate, Porch Living, and Dinner on the Grounds. His company, James Farmer Inc, is a full-service design company, including interiors and landscape. He lives in Perry, GA.

I cannot wait to delve into the book more this week.

A Place to Call Home, y'all!
