Peak Inside...

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles took us inside the offices of Architect, Stan Dixon and Designer, Suzanne Kasler. At no surprise, both will make you swoon with their looks and organization.


Weekend Away...

This weekend we will be at Lake Martin for Memorial Day. I look forward to spending the days on the lake, watching the sunsets in the evening, and indulging in red velvet cupcakes for turning a year older. Enjoy your long weekend!

We have another giveaway this week offered from Sterling Publishing. A VERY MODEST COTTAGE by Tereasa Surratt is part how-to guide, part scrapbook and memoir of rescuing a century-old log cabin. Surratt takes us on the journey of giving new life to this cabin, from moving it across two states, to uncovering its past lives. Surratt shows you how she achieved her goal of creating a guest cottage in about three months and on a budget around $300. You are there from the beginning, when it is loaded on the trailer, to enjoying all four seasons in the finished cottage.
