Park Winters, I can't think of a better place to lounge about. The light outside was gorgeous and the bedrooms so comfy and well appointed it was hard to leave our rooms. We're home now and I'm changing things around our bedroom to spend more time welcoming in the shorter days and cooler nights.
This has been one of the busiest months of the year for us. We were in three different parts of the country and both coasts.
Interesting times and situations for sure. Here are some of the highlights and colors. Happy Hallo's Eve.
This month was about everything southern. We visited Savannah, Saint Augustine and Blue Ridge. Lovely people found us as we searched for local life and farm to table foods. Home now and inspired to keep the southern sentiments going. Making wreaths and cooking okra. Planning a historical kitchen garden for the Sorrel Weed house this week and so excited to begin. Hope your August is wonderful!

Loving this front garden facelift. We removed a few small trees and took out a lawn to make room for a perennial flower garden and Japanese maple. We also replaced the other side of front lawn and installed irrigation. It looks so fresh now!
This is a post about the site Chairish. Recently they asked me if I wanted to write a post about coffee tables. I chose a simple white table from their very cool selection to show you. It's a little more modern than our table but I think what we currently have sitting on ours would look even better on the theirs! What's on your table?
On our table:
Photo/Stoner by Matt Warshaw. Restoration hardware's battery operated votive. Coasters from Manor in Portland Roku, Dwell magazine and a lovely airplant arrangement from Birds and Bee's also in Portland.
I subscribe to chairish.com for updates and frequently check out their new arrivals. Love their vintage furniture. Happy Weekend!
