Favorite Things Friday

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving Holiday! Here are a couple of my favorite things to share with you this Friday..

You may have noticed this in our “Thanksgiving Table” photo shoot pictures. We love this guy at Rosemary Beach! He is painted on two wooden panels and priced together for $416. Probably my favorite piece of artwork to date..

Love the bold chevron pattern on these dwell studio pillows at Mountain Brook. Dimensions are 20 x 20, and offered in colors Ash and Citrine, priced at $117.

Are you finished with your Holiday shopping yet???

See you next week. Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday weekend.


Thanksgiving Table with Simply Seleta

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Hands down favorite.  Family, friends, food, drinks, and taking time to be thankful for our life is why I love the holiday.  This year I have 33 people both friends and family coming to my house for dinner on Thanksgiving.  I can’t wait to set my table and enjoy time with loved ones.  Speaking of setting the table… Seleta and I love our Thanksgiving stlyle session posts.  This is our post from last year and here is our post from 2010.  For our third year we are changining it up a bit.  Here on the Tracery blog you will see our “organgey pumpkin table”(I don’t think orangey is a word but it seems to work as a description in this instance) and over on Seleta’s blog you will find our “organic and mercury table”. So after you look through our post head on over to Seleta’s blog to check out our other look.

With this Thanksgiving Table we started with citrus(which looks fake in the photos but they are real… they are from the trees in Jenny’s yard), pumpkins (Seleta picked these up at our local grocery store), a tray from Tracery, and 2 glass hurricanes.  A very simple and fresh Thanksgiving table setting.  The pumpkins make great placecard holders also if your seating is assigned.

Gobble Gobble!  Happy Thanksgiving!



Christmas at Paige’s Seagrove Cottage

Merry Christmas Y’all! We have had a great year and we are very grateful. We hope everyone is having a fun, slightly crazy, relaxing, and exciting holiday season. Last week my home was featured on Veranda’s Holiday Decorating: Designers at Home. It was really fun to get my house ready for this with my friend Lynn Nesmith (who is a stylist and the author of the book 30A Style). I love to use nature from Seagrove to decorate for the holidays. My ingredients for this year’s Christmas decorations: magnolia, gold spray paint, jute, plaid ribbon, yapoun holly, persimmons, tangerines, kumquats,gold balls from target, gold mercury from tracery, cedar, burlap, cotton (from my dad’s farm) and white lights. All of this together created our home for the holidays… Here are a few shots for you to enjoy…













We wish all of you a Merry Christmas!
