Jekyll Island, Georgia

On a Thursday afternoon, the kids and I loaded my car and took a little drive.  As with most trips, I drove with music blaring and the sunroof down.  They sing along or play games with headphones in until their little heads topple over, heavy with sleep.   We...

The Question That Made Me Queasy

The Question That Made Me Queasy

My baby brother is engaged. The week before he left on his trip to Patagonia with his future bride, Sara, he called me. Talking ninety to nothing and giggling like a school girl, he told me about the ring and the plan and fretted about how in the world he was going to...

Coffee Table Makeover with Salt Wash

Coffee Table Makeover with Salt Wash

I think the last time we talked about the living room (maybe two years ago?), it looked like this... Well.  The entertainment center was there...in too small of a spot.  Then I got a new sofa, and the old was hanging out for a while.  So the chairs scooted in front of...

The Corners

I was walking on the beach, the sun on my face and salt in the air.  To my right there were two women talking.  One younger, wearing shorts and a tank top and the other, older, wrapped in a sweatsuit and wearing sunglasses the size of saucers. I happened to overhear a...

Factory South Shop Displays

It's been a while since I shared any displays at our second location, Factory South.  I'm in and out of there once a week or so, and I still love the way it looks when I walk in.  That's the fun thing about this brand for me.  It feels so much like perfectly...

Some Real Imperfection

Some Real Imperfection

We've spent a great deal of time talking about imperfection, you and I. I named this blog because I was aware of how very flawed we all are.  How flawed I am.  But the truth of it is this.  We still dress up our flaws, polish them out until there's only a small amount...

Broken

I read my friend Marian's post this week.  I loved her words. I lived my life this last year.  Hard.  I have never felt more imperfect than I do right now. R.M. Drake But never have I felt more at peace with myself. Don't fear the broken places, friends.  They won't...

Market 2016 Recap & New Lines

Every January we head to market in Atlanta.  I'm not sure how everyone approaches it, but we buy the bulk of our products for the year in a 4 or 5 day period.  We tend to get freight discounts, etc. so we tend to buy as much as we can for the year...it can be a little...
