Simply great….

I think many of you know our friend, Seleta, from Simply Seleta.  Seleta lives down here in our neck of the woods (or the beach in our case) and we are having so much fun together!  Today we are photographing our next style session for her blog!  It should be fun and we have been brainstorming fun ideas to share with all of you for the holidays.  So far there are baskets, vases, pinecones, ornaments, candles, burlap, and so many other fun things ready to go….
Last week Seleta posted her new gallery wall {here} and it looks awesome!  I am such and fan and have a gallery wall at my home.  You can see my gallery wall {here}.  Also, I was so excited to see she has one of the little birds from Tracery!  We just love our little birds.  They are available in both our stores and online {here}

Can’t wait to share some photos from our shoot!


Drum roll…pillows

We have been working on some Tracery products for a while.  We are so excited to share it with our blog friends!   Here are our first pillows in our custom pillow line.  We will roll out all the pillows in the stores and we will have on line as well for our long distant friends.  I hope you like what you see!  The pillows are 22″x22″ with down fills and are $150 each.

The pillows are burlap!

I am going to add some to my home!

OK.... so when using my front porch as staging for a photo shoot you sometimes get a visitor. But how cute is Lucy.....I admit I am a little biased!

I hope everyone likes our new pillows!

I hope you enjoy the first look at our new pillow line!  There are more to come so stay tuned!  Have a great week!


Vanity Fair Hot Gifts

We are so excited, okay–completely thrilled– to be included in Vanity Fair‘s Hot Gifts guide for the Holidays.  Yes, that Vanity Fair!

You’ll find us on page 144, where our Simrim Jute Place Mats make an appearance!


There we are!


These fun place mats make a great holiday gift for a friend–or yourself!  We have several designs available in our online shop currently and will have additional designs online in the next few days.  You can also check out the place mats in both our Rosemary Beach, FL and Mountain Brook, AL shops!  The set of four place mats are $43.  Remember, we ship anywhere in the United States!

A place for everything….

We’ve had these baskets in our shop before but they sold out immediately!  We have had so many phone calls, emails, etc over the past few months asking when they would be back in stock.  They arrived today!  We wanted all of our blog friends to be the first to know.    Here are a few pics.  The baskets are $92 each.



What all can you imagine in these baskets?

I have lots of stuff I can think of for this basket!

Perfect for the day after Christmas!

And for everything else...

a few Texas blues…

Last week we showed you a sneak peak of the home we were designing in Texas.  If you missed it check it out here.    We love soothing shades of blues and greens.  This home is full of them!  The name of the house is SeaGlass so it should have lots of seaglass colors.  This beach house is almost finished (but not quite) but we wanted you to see what Bess and I did all last week on the other side of the Gulf of Mexico.  Once the last details are finished we will show you the final product.  Hope you enjoy!

The finished dining room! This room is just flooded with light!

We selected bar stools that have limed oak seats and back and steel frame.

Check out sunset from the second floor porch. Wow! The view was just amazing!


I was hangingg the sand dollars really early one morning in the Master Bath. (I can't believe I am showing you this photo)

The guest bedroom. We painted the wood wall behind the bed alternating white and aqua striped.

As the construction is finished in the other parts of the home we will show you more photos!  It is coming together!  It was really fun to go to Texas to work on installing the furniture for the home.  We worked on the drawings, finishes, and furniture over the past year with the family over the phone and email.  It was really great to finally meet!   I hope you enjoyed the tour…more to come…
