Mustard Seed Antique Mall – Oxford, MS

While on my most recent road trip, I stumbled upon Mustard Seed, an amazing antique mall in Oxford, MS. Unlike most antique malls, it is impeccably organized, not over crowded, and surprisingly well lit. It does have quite a bit of new decorative merchandise, like Ole Miss fan-wear and accessories – which isn’t really my thing, but the…

Lining a Trunk

DIY Refurbished Trunk

Like every other vintage-loving girl, I love a good trunk. They’re great for storage and much, much more! I use a very large trunk as a coffee table (and drafting table) and a smaller one for a TV stand. So obviously, when I see one at a thrift shop I HAVE to buy it… even…

I am so happy to see that Google honored one of my favorite American Authors, Zora Neale Hurston. The google doodle will be up all day Tuesday, January 7th (her birthday).

Mississippi Blues Trail Road Trip

Rolling Fork, Mississippi

I love to travel. In college I spent quite a bit of time traveling internationally (and writing grants to cover my jet setting expenses) – but since I graduated in 2011, I’ve traded in pricey airfare for quirky road trips. Road trips are great for so many reasons, but my favorite part is catching glimpses…

Super Simple Pasta with Italian Sausage

Super Simple Pasta with Italian Sausage

Like every other food lover out there, Italian food is my kryptonite. I could eat pasta every day of the week if Eric would let me. It’s filling, delicious, and so easy to make! I manage to squeeze it into our diet about once a week so I’ve tried dozens of different ways to spice…

Designer NYE Inspiration Board

Designer NYE Style for Less than $25!

I LOVE sparkly sequined dresses. If I could wear them to bed I would. So obviously I had to wear a festive frock this New Years Eve! I spent New Years in Fairhope, Alabama at the Grand Hotel (aka no clubbing/bar hopping/ anything too exciting) so I knew I needed something a little more laid…
