If you’re looking for a fun patriotic recipe for a cocktail, check out my friend Meme’s recipe for festive drunk strawberries.  Fruit + white chocolate + vodka = what’s not to love?  You’ll definitely have a happy fourth after a couple of these ;)

Happy Memorial Day!

I hope everyone had a great three day weekend.  I love Memorial Day.  But I think that we should take time to appreciate the people who fight for this country all 365 days of the year.  An especially huge thank you goes out to those Americans who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom… Thank you!

Happy Easter!!!

I hope everyone had a good Easter!  How pretty is this wreath made of tulips?  I’m so excited about this Spring weather.  But I have to admit I’m already kind of dreading 100 degree temperatures so hopefully those days will hold off… I think the temperature is supposed to get up into seventies in Atlanta today – yay!  This week I’m going to try to post some Springy pictures to put us in the mood.

Starting with Scalamandre’s zebra wallpaper in green.

My mom has been talking about getting this wallpaper for her powder room for years… She’s all talk though ;) I also love Visual Comfort’s Quatrefoil flush mount light with it in this entryway!

[Schumacher’s Chenonceau wallpaper in Charcoal]

Talk about a fun wallpaper… Quadrille’s Henriot Floral is super fun.  There’s a lot of fun going on in this bedroom designed by John Knott & John Fonda featured in a recent issue of House Beautiful.

If this isn’t a fun bathroom then I don’t know what is!  That mirror alone is makes me happy :)

Ruthie Sommers designed this hallway with black lacquered walls and neon artwork.

And last but not least, a bedroom covered in Sister Parrish fabrics in shades of red, white, & blue… how patriotic.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

As we all know by now, green is my absolute favorite color.  And Emerald green is the color of the year.  So St. Patrick’s Day is extra special…  I hope everyone drinks some green beer today!!!  Happy St. Patty’s Day!

St. Patrick's Day, summerfield

Red and Pink

In honor of yesterday being Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share some lovely pink and red pretties.  Actually, I forgot to make a post for Valentine’s Day.  I wish I could say I’m still getting used to this blogging thing, but that doesn’t work anymore since Summerfield is more than one year old (still can’t can’t believe it!  I still feel challenged in the blogging area… maybe you can tell, haha).  Therefore, no excuses.  I will remember my Hallmark holidays and plan my blog posts accordingly from now on ;)

By the way, this is my Valentine.  He is the sweetest, cutest, most loving Valentine in the whole world!  His name is Gus and I’m so sad we didn’t spend Valentine’s Day together.  XO

Merry Christmas Eve!!!

I’m so happy and thankful to be able to spend an entire week at home in Chattanooga, relaxing and spending extra time with family and friends.  I’m also glad the weather has turned cold – Christmas just doesn’t feel right when it’s 65 degrees outside!  I hope everyone is having a good holiday – maybe these pictures will help get you in the spirit :)

The Clay Pot, Chattanooga

I can’t believe I haven’t devoted a blog post to one of my favorite stores in Chattanooga! The Clay Pot is a cute home/flower/gift store in the Riverview area of Chattanooga. It is owned by the super talented Joe Jumper. I’m constantly impressed by all of the creative decorations he comes up with. You can check out some of them on the facebook page or the blog, “Dirt from… The Clay Pot”. I’ve been to several different weddings that he has worked on and they were all absolutely gorgeous.

I should’ve shared this post a couple of weeks ago because they make awesome custom wreaths for Christmas. Some of my favorites were the ones hung on the front doors of Embellish, a fabulous shoe store in Chattanooga. I loved the wreaths so much I convinced my mom to have one made for her green back door.

How about opening an Atlanta location, Joe? ;)

And now some pictures of those chic wreaths:

My parents’ back door (my mom and I painted it green last year):

If you’re ever in the Chattanooga area, be sure to stop at the Clay Pot to see what they have in store! And some highlights of Joe’s work and shop photos:
