The past two weeks I have felt a little blah. Do you ever have weeks like that? We just moved in to our new house and unpacking takes priority. And it is mid-summer for our kids. I love summer, but when I am home all day I skip makeup and wear yoga pants.

Today I put on makeup and earrings and cute shorts. And you know? It made a big difference to my day! The shorts were the most expensive and were still under $20. A few accessories really boosted my attitude. Do you stay home during the day? How do you fight the summer blahs? 

ps Many of my pieces are from Target. If you shop there be sure to check Cartwheel. All women's dresses are 10% off through July 26th! (not an ad. just a fan..)

Dessert Cup Succulents

Our furniture arrived to our new home this week! My husband's parents visited for a few days to help settle in. We have an (empty) formal dining room and it has been the perfect place to organize and unpack boxes. Our vintage accessories are still in boxes and I realize it will take time for our new house to authentically feel like home.  

Last night I purchased small succulents from Lowes and placed them in a few of my Poppytalk dessert cups on the kitchen table. So simple it really doesn't need a tutorial. And I love the color and personality it adds to our kitchen.

It is amazing how a few small plants on the breakfast table really do make a space feel like home. They could also work as a party favor or small housewarming gift. Have you moved recently? Do you have any suggestions for quickly making a space your own?

The Paris Market & Brocante

My husband and I married in downtown Savannah, Georgia almost nine years ago. He received his masters at Savannah College of Art & Design. We since moved to Kentucky and later to Minnesota. Savannah has certainly changed in nine years, but many things remain the same: it is a city filled with class. It exudes a Southern lifestyle with slow walks and mason jars of sweet tea. 

I recently met with Izzy Hudgins at The Paris Market & Brocante. The store was warm and inviting and most importantly fabulously styled. I found cookbooks that inspired me to rediscover cooking. A cafe, beautifully packaged soaps, candy, and custom lighting filled the upstairs. 

The downstairs showed off chairs, tables, home accessories. I loved the pops of color and the mix of vintage with new pieces. This would be the perfect stop for a unique wedding gift. 

The Paris Market left me inspired. We just purchased a newer home and most of our home accesories are vintage. The store showed me that it is possible to blend the two. Next time you are in Savannah be sure to visit!

PS and stop by the cafe. the salted caramel macaron is heavenly!
