I'm very excited to introduce my newest collection of gifts: Verdant Flowers. This pattern was inspired by my favorite color (green, in case you're new here), and the darling wildflowers and weeds that grow here on Johns Island.Continue reading
I love how edgy indigo looks when paired with peony pink, caviar black, crisp white, and delphinium blue. This is a powerful color palette for sure — even with pink and light blue hues in the mix.
When my friend Alesya was designing her latest collection of leather laptop bags that don't look like laptop bags, the stand out color was a purplish-blue hue that we temporarily dubbed "don't call it blurple." She settled on "Indigo" as the final color name for two reasons. Number one: technically, indigo is the color between blue and violet on the visible spectrum — which the bag most certainly is. Number two: indigo is the name of a dye of the same color extracted from the Indigofera plant, a crop important to early South Carolina history.
I always love the colors Alesya brings to the table. Fingers crossed for a green in the next collection. Just sayin'.Continue reading
I recently had the great pleasure of chatting with my dear friend Cyd Converse on her new Podcast, Hey Neighbor. We talk about my move from Southern California to South Carolina, having an autoimmune disease, living in a four generation household, life during lockdown, and some party tips. To listen, head over to Cyd's blog, The Sweetest Occasion for the scoop.Continue reading

I've been working from home on and off for nearly twenty years. I can never have enough cool home office supplies. I may or may not have an entire drawer full of pens and pencils, a separate one for markers, and a shelf full of vintage midcentury office supplies. Most of my day is spent working, so why not have tools that make me happy? I've rounded up some of my favorite supplies, most of them green (go figure).
A perfect notebook is key — I'm partial to Shorthand Notebooks (1.) for blank pages and Appointed (9.) for dot grid pages. Sidenote: if you're left handed, you can order the Shorthand book with the binding on the left. Amazing! I just ordered a 4 color ink pen (3.) from Shorthand, too, so I can "travel" light when I'm working from my backyard lounge chair. I'm obsessed with Green Paper Mate Flair felt tip pens (5.) I use them constantly to mark up projects. I also just ordered a couple of Seed Almond Erasers (4.) I LOVE that they come with protective cases, so they'll stay nice and clean in my pencil case.Continue reading
