There are so many pretty lamps here at Doyles on the Dunes.

When we got to the Mess Hall on Tybee Island last month, we walked in to a cottage full of all kinds of different colors, patterns, styles and textures. Homeowner, Pam, craved a more cohesive look, but didn’t want to spend a whole lot of money re-doing the place. And to make matters even more […]

Happy Wednesday from Tybee Island! I thought I’d share a quick, cheap, easy little DIY art project I put together over at the Mess Hall this week.
