We Love Goat

Mmmm.... we love some Sparkle Goat! What's a sparkle goat? Only our fave little lunch spot in sweet ol' T-ville. They've got healthy, filling, uber-yummy food. No, not a bunch of lettuce topped with lettuce - REAL food - like burritos filled with quinoa, and pepperoni quesadillas. And the desserts, oh yes, the desserts - apple walnut pie with honey whipped cream or lavender chocolate mousse pie. 


If you can't get to Sparkle Goat Cafe in T-ville, search out your nearest organic or vegetarian restaurant (shout out to The Grit in Athens!) and chow down!

We Love Station Wagons

I know, I know - how very soccer-mom-y. But I'm not even a mom and I have one. Well, 2. Yes, 2 wagons. They're so versatile! Haile has one, too, (it's monogrammed) and so does her sister-in-law. Seriously, you can fit kids and dogs inside, a kayak on top and bikes on the back. And still not have to drive a mini-van.

Here's a nifty photo tour.
Volvo wagon for shooting at the farm.

Volvo wagon for mud bogging.

Volvo wagon for those who love vintage.

Volvo wagon for those who love speed. Or are chronically late.

Volvo wagon for very serious off-roading. Now THAT should be monogrammed.

We Hrt Hrses

Who didn't want a pony? I, for one, was a horse fanatic as a child, and I still love 'em. Haile too. 
Here's a pic from Parker's first riding lesson! (That's Haile's oldest son)
Thanks Leslie B!

A Good Read

I'm sure you've heard of the death of magazines, yes? Well, what if they don't die? What if they just take to the internet, adapting to their new electronic environment? What if they get even fabulouser because they're cheaper to produce and they don't have to run so many ads? As Haile says, get out of the buggy whip business as fast as you can!
 
And here's her pick for Things We Love this Monday. It's Southern Flourish - a sweet little mag all about the South.

More Stuff We Love

Haile love, love, loves Elizabeth McKay, and you can often find her wearing this lovely top in the blue stripe pattern! I think the fact that you can wear it with your husband's cufflinks is too cool for school!


I'm a big fan of this dress, too.

Fall for E. McKay yourself here.

Speaking of *New*.....

Since we're talking about all the NEW stuff we LOVE this month, let's go ahead and throw this out there.

Haile LOVES Macs - our whole office is full of them. And now there will be one more....

Yup, that's right - she pre-ordered an Ipad! I can't wait to see it! It makes me think of those interactive newspapers in Harry Potter and Minority Report!

Love is in the Air!

Our dear friend Jackie Ellis of OSO Artworks (who is doing our booth for NYSS!) got engaged over the holiday weekend! And now all I can think about is how perfect our new candles would be for bridesmaid gifts. 
Mmmmm...a luxurious soy candle with a sumptuous tangerine-vanilla scent and a custom monogram. Gotta have one? Get yours here!

Spring!

Spring is here...the birds are sing-ing.....

In my head that is being sung to the tune of the Sound of Music! One really cannot deny the effect of some good sunshine on mood and life in general.

We're excited about the upcoming Stationery Show and we want to share our new stuff with you - and oodles of new stuff from our fave people.

Ready? Here goes - perfect for the tail end of the Easter weekend (pun, yes pun!) - it's the Grass Countertop Drying Rack! Haile just got one for home, and it's inspiring so many ideas!


Get yours here.
