We’ve been home for the week between menswear shows, and I thought this would be a good time to just share a few pictures of life lately. That view above is one of my very favorites. It’s looking out a second story window at Rivermont down to the workshop. In the top, you can see the bell that guests and delivery people ring when they arrive. It’s just the best sound!
On Saturday morning, friends came over to see the new digs and brought this beautiful bouquet of zinnias from the farmers market. Zinnias are some of my favorite flowers–so colorful and cheerful. They always look like they’re having a good time.
(And yes, I am still obsessed with that dining room wallpaper. #glitter)
Peach season is in full swing here in East Tennessee, and we’ve been eating them with about every meal. The other day, I picked up a bottle of this Blackberry Patch syrup at Whole Foods and was delighted to see that it’s made in Thomasville, Georgia. The label cracks me up: “The Southern version of maple syrup.” No surprise then that it went perfectly with my peach pancakes!
We were delighted to have our first house guests this weekend, and I’m happy to say we managed to pull together at least a few rooms to greet them. I have this theory that heirloom quilts and fresh flowers can cover a multitude of sins.
Staying up late at night to catch up with friends you don’t see often is just one of the best things in the world. Caryn and I even got to sneak away on Monday afternoon to do a little thrifting. That’s where I scored this old glove mold.
We’ve been eyeing the ones at Fish’s Eddy for a while, but running across this one by chance was even better! It fits perfectly in our living room upstairs where these fab curtains also reside.
An amaryllis also bloomed over the weekend. One of the coolest things about moving to a new place is watching what pops up in the gardens. A friend told me that amaryllis are often called “naked ladies” because they bloom with no leaves. And now, of course, I’m hoping they pop up everywhere just so I can say to my friends, “Come see the naked ladies at Rivermont!”
