Good evening friends! Hope you are having a great week. Did you see our brand new arrivals on the home page! So many pretties and more coming up:) Here lots going on and its been busy busy busy. Can you believe we are almost done with our new Christmas holiday gift wrap collection for 2019! Also for anyone in the low country area, our PB home was selected to be in the Parade of Homes. The tour kicks off tomorrow March 29th and will run through Sunday, March 31st. Click here to go to the organizer’s website for ticket info. So wish I could be there! Sounds crazy but with the way that holidays creep up on us, I learned from last year that this cannot be done too soon! Also our new 2019 ornament collection has also started so yes we are busy elves even in March:) This is going to be the best yet and I am very excited about it! We have lots in store and I look forward to sharing everything with you as things unfold. Most of this particular random musings post centers around Palmetto Bluff since I was there for the week but some highlights from around the office too. So onward with the highlights of the last 10 days or so….. _______________________________________ Driving into the tree lined road with the Spanish moss that leads to Palmetto Bluff was a sight for my weary eyes! One of the highlights of the week was getting a small box of my newest spring chinoiserie gift wrap, could not love it more! It’s sooo pretty. Stay tuned for a giveaway and it will be here in about 4 weeks:) Of course had to give it a trial run and wrap up some gifts! The lighting in the office is horrible but this gives you an idea of how gorgeous this paper is! Pale green pale blue left and pale green right Ivory in the back Pale blue This is the sitting area for a guest suite at PB added these new pillows which I love and the pretty hydrangea arrangement, we will have to hang things on the all and make it feel a little cozier but really like the way this space is shaping up In that guest suite we have a small kitchenette with a refrigerator, cabinets,etc….I found this adorable tray at Target and thought it was perfect for water bottles, etc… A slice of life at Palmetto Bluff The highlight of the last two weeks was seeing my gorgeous wallpaper go up….L O V E it! My favorite space..the porch Though I am not done, made some progress on bookcases. Had a few books and then went to a local bookshop and found some strictly for color (so don’t judge on these super random titles lol) waiting for the rest I ordered And I thought I got lucky and escaped the pollen…no such luck! My favorite thing to do in PB…..nothing:) Doesn’t that view almost look fake? View from my kitchen window Early morning at the pool one day…..loved having it to myself! My southern blogging headquarters! View late afternoon……ahhhhh just seeing this picture takes my blood pressure down a few notches:) Added this pretty wicker tray to my cocktail table..slowly but surely it’s coming together! And possibly the single most exciting thing in a long time is seeing my gorgeous etched pieces come in (samples) so excited over these. I had seen a pair at 1st Dibs that were beautiful but very expensive. Then I saw them in Charlotte Moss’s book in the most exquisite holiday setting and couldn’t get them off my mind, so………. I created them! These were a long time in the making but so worth the wait. Will hold a presale on these in about 2 weeks, stay tuned! This is the glorious setting out of Charlotte Moss’s book and if you don’t have her book below, you MUST get it…..it is a top two favorite book of all time! And my samples- And a few of my samples on my dining room table aka my experimental lab:) The cake dome has a plate underneath which is not shown and the hurricanes will come in 2 sizes, one large shown which is about 18″ and the other is 12″. ______________________________________________ And that friends is a wrap! See anything here that excites you? Leaving Palmetto Bluff is and was never easy as the pace really agrees with me, but coming back to the stunning etched samples and gorgeous gift wrap made it a lot more bearable. Thank you for stopping by, hope your week is going well. Until next time……. PS A new gift with purchase has begun (no code needed) Click here to see our incredible collection of gift wrap.
