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.

Bevolo-style Gas Lanterns

Oh! How I wish we had gas lanterns on our porch on Perrier Street! They scream Southern to me. But, I guess I do have the next best thing, Bevolo-styled gas lanterns by the uber-talented Cynthia Kolls.

I purchased these two at Bevolo on Royal Street two years ago. I love to use them between seasons. They always seem to bring us the biggest compliments.

You want to own a pair? Contact Cynthia by way of her etsy shop. Click HERE.

Lighting the way, y'all!
