The colder months bring friendship and fellowship around the fire. It's a place where tall stories are told, monsters are made, romances are born and nothing is ever forgotten.

Whether it's cabin or campground, these goods are sure to come in handy (or at least look really REALLY good).

A Gift Guide: Everyday Beauty

It's my birthday week so I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate with a seasonal gift guide with some of my favorites in apparel, jewelry, and beauty. It's always important  for me to choose things that are simple, classic and well made- not only for myself but for others. It is always more than just shopping, it's about giving something useful and well thought out. So don't wait until the last minute!

A Gift Guide: Holiday Dining

My favorite time of year is when I can gather all of the people I love around the table. In Louisiana, we do this all year 'round but there's just something magical about being bundled up in your favorite sweater, the twinkle of lights on the tree and the gentle sound of laughter over a warm, home-cooked meal. I've always loved the simple gesture of making a place setting for someone too; weaving fresh cut conifer down the table, the texture of linen against the wood and an imperfect scratch of their name next to a waiting plate. 

Here are my favorite Holiday Dining essentials for this year. I hope you enjoy these beautiful items made by all of these talented makers!
