Tippy Toes!

In the latest adventures of Sarah and Emily, we met with an up and coming new company called Tippy Toes. It's a fabulous concept of using your child's footprints and finger prints within a whimsical painting on pottery. One of my favorite pieces was a large lobster serving platter. At a glance, you don't even notice that the claws of the lobster are the footprints of a little boy! They sign the artwork with the child's name and year. What a great memory to have for years to come! They wanted a logo that was chic and boutique, but yet fun and colorful to represent the young side of the business. Here's what we finalized and I can't wait to see it in print!

Monogram and Martinis

So there's a new shower theme on the horizon! Or at least new for my ventures! MONOGRAMS and MARTINIS! I've seen Monograms and Mimosas which is so cute for a daytime/brunch shower, but this is a new flare for an evening/girl's night theme! This bride is particularly preppy so we went with Pink and Green. Instead of the monogram at the top, I made the monogram in the shape of the olive in the martini.

Up up and away!!!

I did a recent photo shoot for a company here and the task was to travel in a manlift about 30-40 feet in the air for their company holiday photo. Check out this pic where you can see me in the actual manlift in the shadow! I thought it was pretty cool!

Bride Wars

So I went to the movies last night with two of my girlfriends to see BRIDE WARS with Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway - it was FABULOUS! It's definitely the kind of movie that makes you appreciate the good friends in your life and has quite a bit of humor as well! We were crying and laughing at times and it has a great ending! Check it out!

Our Bathroom got a Facelift!



A few of you have inquired about seeing the bathroom before and after. After removing the many layers of wallpaper and old paint, we were able to finally able to complete our bathroom with some fresh paint, a new shower curtain, new mirror and light fixture. I LOVE using traditional mirrors with a frame instead of the flat mirror that's typically in bathrooms.

oh, dallas!

So in my efforts to keep the animals off the new slipcover, I found that Dallas has snuck into a snuggly spot on the blanket. Couldn't resist this precious photo!

Cover It!

Well I'm excited to say that I finally got my long-awaited slipcover completed for my Nana's cream couch in the piano room. I have to say it looks FABULOUS! The Seeger girls were a pleasure to work with and provided such a great product! Now my room is finally starting to look completed...well, except for the Christmas tree that needs to be ditched by the hubby! If you live in the Savannah area and want a custom slipcover made for any piece of furniture , contact Elizabeth Seeger at Satchel! She can do couches, chairs, parson chairs, just about anything! It's a great way to update an antique or hand-me-down, and you can easily remove them for washing. Elizabeth also does custom handbags that are as beautiful as they are practical.

Music to Remember

So when 2am came around on NYE night, my friends and I found ourselves singing along with an infomercial about the Easy Rock Music Collection. We must have sat entranced in the play list for at least half an hour while eating our standard frozen pizza after a long day of celebration. My hubby and I finally came in the office today and downloaded the selections of our choice in iTunes of course, but what a great play list it made! The songs remind of us growing up cruisin' in our parent's cars, Patrick sitting through his mom's aerobics classes that she taught or as I remember most, playing on the radio at the dentist office on B98.5 in Atlanta.... Check out the play list here : I didn't remember some of the titles until we replayed them and wow, such memories!

Fabulous Margarita Recipe

So my dear friend, Larcie, shared this yummerlicious (yes, I totally just made up that word!) for margaritas. If you're like me, you may grow a little tired of the typical margaritas from Mexican restaurants made mostly of sugar elixirs, maybe with a little tequila thrown in the mix for good measure. I really think my buzz originates from the sugar high I receive rather than a good tequila - such a shame! Anyway, here's the recipe and boy is it YUM! Don't ask me how it's so good because of the random ingredients, it just works!

1 can frozen limeade
1 bottle Corona Light Beer
1 can diet 7-Up
8 ounces Tequila

Stir and enjoy in a fabulous margarita glass of your choice or in my house, a classic Tervis Tumbler!
