I know that many of you are "old-hat" at this blogging thing, however, it's new for me so bear with me while I get my writing groove on! I have been moving from house to house, city to city for years now. Each time I have painted and decorated only to do it again in a few years. Along the way I have collected some real treasures, many of which I still have and continue to display and love. At some point, I realized that this is my passion ( or maybe my obsession). I love decorating, moving furniture and displaying my collectibles. And now, I want to share it with all of you. Technology allows us to do that so easily! I have created this web site Southern By Design to house my pictures, ideas and treasures to sell. My other love (and many of you have enjoyed it) is cooking. So recipes will also be included on the site. When I thought about how to put this together I thought about how I organize my decorating....by season or time of year. For each season you will have decorating ideas, tablescapes, recipes and a "favorite" recipe for the season. Many of my ideas and treasures you will find in the OnLine Store (coming soon!). Some items will be one of a kind, so you will want to grab them quick. Other times, I will point you on where to find something or "How-To" make it yourself. Remember it's a work in process, so check back often and let me know how you like the site.
Until next time....
A southern girl at heart, I have been moving and decorating all my life. I enjoy the hunt as much as putting the finished arrangement together. I love to mix old and new together, especially old silver and country store display items. It's all about comfort and making your house a home.
