Love | Bruner Wedding.

14 Feb

Happy Valentine’s Day! In honor of this day of love, I am sharing the wedding invitation that Jenna and I made for the Musgrave | Bruner wedding. The hand-written names add unique details and flourishes that type just cannot offer. The art of writing is one that I have always been drawn to (no, not intentional but I’m leaving that little nugget there for you) and long to perfect. Here is one place I was able to do that and am so pleased with the outcome!

Calder Clark Designs is where it’s at. Calder is the most talented/fun/hip person I know. She creates be-a-utiful events in Charleston and anywhere you want her to go with impeccable taste and stellar design. Click on over and you can see the goodie-bags I created for the children’s table at a July wedding last year at the William Aiken House. And in true Calder fashion, it was also featured in the most recent issue of Southern Living Weddings magazine.

Holiday Cheer.

6 Dec

Last week I spent some much needed time in one of my favorite stores in the Old Village, Out of Hand. The ribbon and fine paper filled walls literally make me dream in glitter and gift wrap. They have the most wonderful paper products, jewelry, and gifts. Every inch of the store houses perfectly unique gifts and plenty of holiday cheer.

One day I will have an entire room devoted to paper, ribbon, buttons, and glitter. And I will probably never leave. Or have to clean it up and store it away. What a dream.

Maybe you’ve heard of my friend Lulie Wallace. She’s the most amazingly talented and heart-lifting person around. She paints. She blogs. She watercolors. She’s into printmaking. Honest Abe is her labradoodle that will melt your heart and hug your neck. Oh Happy Day blogged about her bright florals and envy-worthy talent. I mean that’s a big deal. She is a big deal. I really really love the joy that surrounds her and her work.

Last week Lulie taught us the basics of duplexing and block printing at her studio, Redux Studios for the cards in her Christmas Shop (go add it all to your Christmas list).

Yes, these are letters for the letterpress. I’m seriously considering renting a drawer at Redux to cut, duplex, print, and LETTERPRESS all day. Every day.

Screen-printed tags and cards make the perfect Christmas gift. Especially kraft paper ones with chevron stripes and loop de loops.

I’d Gladly Go Back.

Happy Monday! Here are a few pictures from Music to Your Mouth this past Saturday at Palmetto Bluff. It’s beautiful- with it’s quaint setting, understated elegance, and stunning views. Honestly, the weather couldn’t have been more perfect and the food/wine more delicious.

Under the big tent, Gail Simmons hosted the event while chefs and wine enthusiasts filled the bellies and tamed the tongues of food-lovers.

FIG is a restaurant in Charleston I’ve been dying to go to since I moved here over 2 years ago. Chef Mike Lata’s butter bean pasta fiesole was undeniably incredible. Many other chefs throughout the southeast plated their culinary fares as well.

Banana pudding. Two words that ring so sweet to the ears of many Southerners. But this banana pudding boasts far above all the rest. No Jell-O vanilla pudding was whipped up for this sweet concoction, instead lots of heavy cream and love.

This bike (and many others along with golf carts – the main mode of transportation) resided outside the general store. Lots of folks live at Palmetto Bluff and others (insert me) simply dream of staying for the weekend.
