When in Beaufort, NC...

You have to stop by this wonderful shop, Calypso Cottage. Just over the bridge, on the corner of Orange and Cedar, you'll find two magical, colorful, 1935 fisherman's cottages converted into Hamptonesque boutiques. Filled with unique jewelry, coastal treasures and home decor, you could spend hours just looking through the rooms of these two cottages.

My mother-in-law purchased these fun earrings for me, but I had a hard time choosing between the green and the blue. We think they would look great with a black linen dress. She also picked up some Jack and Lulu stationary. You can also see more products on their website or on the Calypso Cottage blog.


The lady that owns the shop was there, and she is so wonderful and actually has quite an exciting bio. From the Calypso Cottage website: "Stacie had her first shop, Cheznu, in Palm Beach at the age of 19 and went on to a career in high-fashion and precious jewelry working for such names as Courreges, Yves Saint Laurent and Tiffany." (WOW!) She and her husband are recent transplants from the Hamptons and decided to open the shop after visiting Beaufort for a family reunion.

And we're so glad they did!

  4. Ooooh.... I love shops like that. It reminds me of some of the great shops up in Ogunquit, ME.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
