If you're ever in Smyrna, GA...

Just outside Atlanta, in Smyrna, GA, is where my sister-in-law and her business partner own the cutest shop....The Honeybee.  If you live in the area, or are just visiting, I highly recommend it for a great shopping experience.  The Honeybee has the cutest clothes, shoes, jewelry, and accessories.

They've recently expanded with The Bird & the Bee, a home and garden store adjacent to The Honeybee.  So many cute items!

 Here's just some of the photos from their facebook page at The Honeybee.


Many of their gorgeous items are from local artists.

 Don't you love the use of the old paint splotched ladder for hanging these gorgeous dresses?

 The following photos are from The Bird & the Bees facebook page.


 Annie Sloan Chalk Paint workshops are offered here.

And they sell the paint in the store.

Here are some other pretties from the store...

Pot covers for your plants.

Tea towels

Basket chandeliers

Bike baskets

Pallet art

I've told my sister-in-law that if we lived in Smyrna, I would work for her for free.  

Such cute stuff! 

Hope your week if off to a good start.

Shopping for shoes

I was a happy girl this morning when I woke up to this email.

 Shoebuy.com  Today Only - Get $30 off your purchase of $100 or more.

I've purchased shoes at Shoebuy before, so I'm on their email list and I think this offer is an "email exclusive" offer, but they have a great selection of shoes AND free shipping both ways....meaning if you have to return the shoes for any reason it's free shipping!  I hate to return anything but that certainly makes it a little easier.

Here's just a few of the boots I was looking at:

 Can you tell I'm kind of a "low-heel" girl?

If you're in the market for some shoes go check them out!

Reminiscing to warm up!

I have not been able to get warm this weekend.  I wish you could feel my nose right now....brrrrr.
We have had some beautiful sunny days lately, but with low's in the 20's and high's barely reaching 40, I can't get warm.

I've decided to take a trip back to our summer vacation in the British Virgin Islands....a much, much, warmer place...

We spent a couple of weeks here in July...Virgin Gorda.  A beautiful island in the BVI.

This is Little Dix Bay...

...the home to our first stand up paddle adventure!

We loved it!

We spent everyday snorkeling and exploring the island.


This was the view from our lanai.
(Enjoyed it every morning with coffee...)

The house we rented was great, we even had our very own pool! 

 Loved, loved, loved the laid back atmosphere.



 I....think....I'm....starting....to...warm....up.... :)
