Stationery, Prints, and Monograms

Growing up south of the Mason-Dixon, we pride ourselves on our cooking, hospitality, and our manners. Therefore, each of us should not be without a stationery set. We know the importance of the handwritten letter and we see it as something that will never go out of style.

In honor of the National Stationery Show, which is going on as we speak, let's celebrate with these creative companies below!

Livingston Farmers Market

Yesterday kicked off the first Livingston Farmers Market of the season. Happening every Thursday until October, you can escape the city and come out to Madison county and enjoy yourself with some Oh Brother Lemonade, or if you're looking for something to take the edge off, stop at Colony Wine Market's homemade bar for some of their delicious wines.

Each Thursday will host a band and a chef demonstration. While listening to the tunes of the Thirsty Gringos, we got the pleasure of witnessing Parlor Market's demo of a blackberry and tomato summer salad. Yum!

We stocked up on some handmade soaps made with local ingredients, Delta stone ground grits, and of course sampled the wine and lemonade. Next time we will defiantly have dinner plans so we can sample more I the food.

I hope to see you there next week.

Caribbean Collections

While on the Honeymoon we managed to take a quick break from our Caribbean comas of rum punch and fruit infused dishes to explore our home for the next seven days. The husband was sweet enough to let me take a few minutes to enjoy. I did not have to search too far for this delicious delight. This was our hotel, Grace Bay Club's gift shop.



In an effort to add some exercise into our week, we took a bike ride down to some of the local shops. Okay, the truth was we were going to the grocery store to stock up on snacks. Well, lucky me I found the below decor dreamland, Belongings. Their selections range from furniture, textiles, lighting, tabletop, accessories, window treatments, plus much more. You can also find Belongings in the sates in Nantucket, MA.





I took home a couple of these matches.

Later that day after a savory dinner, we were in search of some ice cream. Ta-Da! This place was like no other ice cream shop I have ever seen. I felt like I was in the ice cream twilight zone.

I scream, you scream!

Our hotel lobby was so so bright and refreshing. I wish I could wake up to these colors and textures everyday, and it wouldn't hurt if I was greeted with rum punch and a cold towel every time I walked in. The dogs are smart...maybe they could learn some new tricks! I'll report back on that one.
