More from styling mavin Maggie today!!  Did you miss her first post earlier this week?  Take a look! 3. Who knew you can dress up the table that’s going to hold china and silverware? Well Kim apparently did… Throw your favorite piece of fabric over-top, stack your mis-matched china & add some silverware into a tin and voila! 4. Side table! I don’t think I need to explain this one. (Love the colors here Maggie, teal and tangerine?  Yes please!!! – K) 5. And for the men! Throw some cigars in there and we’ve got ourselves a bar/lounge area. (of […]

When planning our vow renewal celebration back in 2010 I met Maggie, the lovely gal behind Maggpie Vintage Rentals.  Maggie and Jason (the fiance) are making quite the name for themselves and I’m lucky to have them right in my back yard!  In addition to having a keen eye for spotting the sweetest pieces to collect, Maggie also has a sharp eye for styling.  This week she put together some inspiration for us based on the newest pieces in her inventory, so much so I can’t fit it all into one post!  Big hugs to Maggie for staging these glorious […]

Check out Part I of my Atlanta adventure… Read on for more! Atlanta breezed by in a whirlwind way leaving me with sore feet, good memories and a few remaining red velvet cupcakes made by the lovely Sharon.  But seriously, my trek to Atlanta was less about the food I ate of the laughs I had and all about the people I connected with.  Your besties on Twitter become real people face to face and suddenly you feel like you’ve know them forever, in a small but real way. Starting the day with 3 Claire Pettibone gowns staring you down […]
