Transformation Tuesday

For today's installment of Transformation Tuesday, we've got a demonstration in layering for the gal on the go. While you're popping in and out of shops, grabbing coffee and running errands, it's important to have options, especially with the strange weather we're having this fall. We've built a solid backdrop with a gorgeous top from Wilt Clothing. Wilt does amazing things with tops; each one is deceptively simple, appearing as tee or sweatshirt but surprising us with a beautiful hem and... Full Post >

The Berries of Autumn

Long after foliage and flowers have succumbed to the cold, winter-berrying plants fill our gardens with excitement and beauty. The mild, temperate climate of the Carolina Piedmont provides ideal growing conditions for a wide variety of trees and shrubs bearing winter fruit -- many of them native!
