The Dead Do Tell Tales

Old Fort Williams Cemetery in Alabama

I’ve always loved tromping around old cemeteries, pausing to read each tombstone. In the early ’90s, on a walk through the woods near Lay Lake in central Alabama, I came across a cluster of tombstones with a monument in the…

Stained with Blood

The dogwoods are blooming – not where I live in coastal Houston, but farther north and east, in the woods throughout the South. They are the trees in my childhood memories. I was raised in Vestavia Hills, a suburb of Birmingham, Alabama. Every April, since 1964, the city has held a Dogwood Festival to commemorate…

Antiquing in New Orleans

New Orleans is one of those magical places that oozes inspiration for all of the senses. Your ears will be treated to the rhythmic tunes of jazz and soulful blues in the Quarter. Your tastebuds will be tantilized by the mouthwatering flavors of beignets, seafood gumbo and crawfish etouffe′. But it is your eyes that are inspired the most as they feast upon the architectural and interior treats the city has to offer. Asking anyone we know to go on an antiquing trip to New…

“There’s a Firefly Loose Tonight…” from “Firefly” Lyrics and Music by Ed Sheeran

Do you want to see fireflies? I asked my 9-year-old daughter.

“Oh, yes!” she answered.

“There’s a Firefly Walk this Friday night at Armand Bayou Nature Center. I’ll sign us up.”

And so we went - me, her, and my mother. We arrived in the early evening of an early May day, before the Houston…

Wonderful Wall Coverings!

There's something about a wall covering that adds that extra element of color, energy and texture to a room. From smooth, suede walls in a study to a gingham wallpapered ceiling in a child's room, wall coverings provide a way to unite a space together  and enhance its overall effect.  Fort Worth's Emily Gilbert, of …

My 5 Favorite Fabric Lines!

If you want to stop an interior designer in their tracks, ask them what their favorite fabric lines are. Although the textile industry competition is getting fiercer and fiercer, most people in the design business have their favorites. We thought it would be fun to get one designer to spill the beans on her top picks, and she was all too happy to do it!  Former Nashvillian now…

COMMUNITY: Snippets of Summer from The Georgia Coast

It’s no wonder why people flock to the Georgia coast during summertime, but a pet parrot?  That’s apparently what happened when “Kotty” escaped from his owner’s boat and decided to explore Jekyll Island on his own terms!  An emergency crew was called in (that’s the real story here), in an attempt to save…

The Bright Side of Golf

When my husband suggests a round of golf, I envision the invitation as something more like a forced march over hot coals, rather than a relaxing stroll for nine holes. 

 Despite his invitations and encouragement to play throughout our 24+ years of marriage, my game is…

nobody can kill the whole covey

I am reading a book called The Old Man and the Boy by Robert Ruark. Daddy gave it to The Hubs and our son to read a year or so ago. They each have tossed it around a bit but neither have really sunk into it yet. Ya know how sometimes the time just has to be right to really sink…
