Rustic Meets Refined

Cotton Wreath | The Lettered Cottage

Remember Tammy? My neighbor, the caterer, with the incredible shrimp and grits recipe? Well, after I published that post, several people asked to see photos of her house, so I thought I’d share a few more here today! Their house is laid out almost just like ours is, but they made a few tweeks to […]

Rustic and Modern


Remember that Simple With A Hearty Side Of Significant post I published last month? If so, you probably remember that cute little boy that found the notepad I hid over by the gazebo. His name is Mikey, and Kevin and I had the opportunity to visit him and his house the other day. He and […]

We’re still working on personalizing the half bath at our place this week… …so I thought I’d blog about my friend Shannan‘s house today. She and her family have had tons of fun adding color, personal touches, and character galore to their recently-built home. She created this little vignette in her entry, and I’m fascinated by […]

Merry Christmas Eve! Kevin and I photographed a charming, southern-style guest cottage recently, and I am so excited to share the photos with you today! It’s called the Chapel Hill Loft, and it belongs to our new friends, Dale and Rita. You remember Dale and Rita’s house, right? It’s the one that had the super cute, […]

Greg Tankersley Home – Old Cloverdale


Kev and I had the pleasure of visiting a really fantastic house in the Old Cloverdale neighborhood of Montgomery (Alabama) recently, and I thought I’d share the photos we took of it here on our blog today. Old Cloverdale is just down the interstate from us (about 15 miles) and the houses there are all […]

Kev and I follow a nice fella named Michael on Twitter and I wanted to blog about some of his crafty projects here today. He writes a blog called Inspired by Charm, and he owns a bed and breakfast in Saint Marys, Pennsylvania. Inside the front door of his (1917) B&B, there’s a little gift […]

Cottage Living’s 2007 Idea House has always been one of my favorites. Do you remember it? The home sits at 4505 Camp Street- a historic neighborhood, in the heart of New Orleans. It has 2400 square feet of living space, three bedrooms and two baths. Cottage Living teamed with the New Orleans Preservation Resource Center to […]

House Tour – Union Springs, AL

Earlier this month, we took a trip to Union Springs, Alabama. It’s a small, laid-back town located about an hour and a half southeast of where we live. Century-old Victorian homes line many of the streets around town, and the ones that are for sale are priced incredibly low because of the towns proximity to […]

Raised In Cotton

The other night after reading our blog post about our transom opening, I received an email from Carol of “Raised In Cotton”. She sent us photos of the transoms in her 140 year old farmhouse. We were so excited to see they looked just like the one we had just cut out! Her transoms made […]

HGTV Green Home Photos

I’m still reeling from our serendipitous trip to the 2008 Green Home on Friday. I almost feels like a dream. (Mom- did I really get to see it in person?) It’s currently up for sale, and the asking price is $589,000. My obsession with this house runs deep. I’ve had this photo set as my […]
