Mar y Sol Bags
We’re back from a couple of days of shopping at the Atlanta Gift Show and while we tweeted as we went, we did save some fabulous finds for this post.
Stray Dog Lamps
Buying stems and vases for our next collection usually takes up much of our time but we did save a day to browse the home decor showrooms and temps now that we’ve added a gift selection to our website.
Pheremone Planthopper Formation
Potting Shed Grow Bottle
Tourmaline Home Pillows
And while we missed seeing Katie from Matchbook Magazine speak on Friday afternoon and Katherine Ireland on Saturday (note to selves – extend trip one more day in January!), we did mix business with pleasure and met the adorable Kelly from Kelly Market for dinner. We love sharing ideas and sources with fellow bloggers, especially self-proclaimed product junkies!

It seems that everywhere we turn this summer, we see blue – from the covers of home decor magazines, to the new collections presented at the Atlanta Gift Show and the nautical-themed fashions on the street.
Kate Spade - Sag Harbor Stripe Glass
Is the current economy inspiring these blues or does relaxed summer living under sunny skies by the ocean, lake or pool draw us to this favorite color?
Tessera - Turkish Plates
Blue is calming yet refreshing, and with so many shades from peacock to periwinkle, this color is a perfect complement to white, green and brown. Chase away the summer blues with these wonderful accents!
