sneak peek: savannah


Titus Maximus Vegetarius is a ham. Impossible to keep him out of our photo shoots. The save the date shown is the new “Savannah” design, part of our Charleston Collection, which will hit a very few select stores this Fall.

typography

 

Loving this fun numbers only font by Hoefler & Frere-Jones: Depot. Would be nice on a save the date or a vintage-looking birth announcement … or as street address in a shop window.

These lovely embroideries from Trowbridge Gallery stopped me in my tracks at the Atlanta Gift Mart. Gorgeous!

donuts at the montage

view of the Pacific Ocean from our table at The Loft at the Montage



A few weeks ago I hopped up to the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach, California to have lunch with a friend. We were both blown away by this amazing dessert: beignets and a marshmallow mud pie made with homemade marshmallow, chicory ice cream, and chocolate. The little round cup was full of warm chocolate sauce. Yum.

christmas in july


One of my favorite booths at the Atlanta Gift Mart was the delightful John toole. Christmas ornaments just make me happy, and I loved the chic use of color, especially theses aqua/grey/gold pretties.

inspired by charleston

photo and stationery: delphine


I designed this rehearsal invitation a few months ago, when I was feeling quite homesick for Charleston, South Carolina. The warm grey and spring yellow inks are the same color as the beach sand and the marsh sweetgrass where I grew up on the Isle of Palms. The restaurant on the invite, High Cotton, is known for its superb Lowcountry cuisine. Each time I visit I fall in love with this city all over again and wonder why in the world I ever left.

sweet tea vodka


When I saw a Sweet Tea Mojito on the menu at Cypress the other night I just had to try it. I was skeptical, and had already chosen a “backup” drink … but it was AMAZING. So amazing that I went to a liquor store today and bought a bottle of Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka to take home to Cali.
