Summer 2015 Market Trends


We just got back from shopping Atlanta Market over the weekend and couldn't wait to share with you what looks like the hottest trends for this fall!  {As a designer, a bonus for noticing the trends is that it can inspire me to create products that will merchandise nicely with those emerging trends.} Lots of fun new items will be headed our way over the next few months, but until then, take note of what we declare as "IN" for Fall 2015! ** If you want to see even more of what we found for … [Continue reading...]

The Watermelon Keg


It's summer - and that means that picnics, backyard barbecues and outdoor get-togethers are happening NOW! For your next summer party, use a watermelon keg - it's clever, useful and a fun way to delight your guests (for only $24.99, plus the cost of a watermelon). To start, if your watermelon will stand up straight on its own, then can slice off the top and start scooping out the flesh.  If not, you'll need to trim approximately 1 inch off the bottom so that the watermelon will stand up … [Continue reading...]

Grilled Artichokes


With beautiful weather in store for this week, I couldn’t resist pulling out the grill over the weekend!  I’ve only made this recipe a few times (I’m still working on perfecting the “art of the artichoke”), but it gets tastier every time.  And of course since the grill was already out, I HAD to make […]

2015 January Market Trends


As always, my last trip to Atlanta Market did not disappoint.  It’s true, going to Market IS fun, but make no mistake – it’s NOT a vacation or pleasure trip.  It’s hard WORK.  I try to throw in a couple of great dinners to make it seem more fun and relaxing than it really is, […]

Dinner in the ATL


One of my highlights of visiting Atlanta for Market is the variety of incredible restaurants within a stone’s throw.  Being in West Texas, I don’t have many opportunities for interesting cuisine, so I rely on my travels to get adventurous – especially with seafood.  On this trip, I was bound and determined to try The […]

New Year’s Day Brunch


This year, on a bit of a whim, I decided to throw together a New Year’s Day Brunch with my girlfriends.  I had the day off, I still had plenty of food in my fridge from Christmas, and I haven’t had much time with my favorite girls since the busy season hit. Since it was […]

3 Ways to Give Better Gifts


With Christmas around the corner, a lot of people stress about trying to find the “perfect” gift for their loved ones.  In retail, I see the panic on our shopper’s faces when December 23rd rolls around.  They’re in a tizzy, blindly grabbing items off the shelf (not even caring WHAT the item is) just to […]
