Made in Carolina

Soteria and Charles were recently featured in Skirt Magazine because they are Charleston’s Cutest Couple. Look at this picture and tell me I’m wrong: There’s a snippet of the article here. Bonus points to Charles for using “acci-purposely.” Kontis Sister assimilation is what that is. 🙂

Red Candy Sale

If you haven’t gotten your fill of Valentine’s Day candy on sale yet, well, that’s nobody’s fault but your own. Lucky for you, Easter’s just around the corner, with a significantly smaller proportion of Red Dye Number Five. I had a lovely Valentine’s Day, thank you, in no small part because of my father. I don’t remember when the…

Inglorious Moments

I got out of my Meeting Marathon at work last night just in time to hightail it to the lovely Malco theatre we have here in Smyrna, Tennessee. I missed all the trailers, but I didn’t miss a second of Inglorious Basterds. Quentin Tarantino is the movie geek’s movie geek. I was raised at the movie theatre (literally, as…

Window Shopping

Shiny things make me happy. I have no excuse. Then again, I’m a princess — I don’t need one. Know what else makes me happy? Clicking through Dixie Dunbar Studio’s brand-spanking new website and checking out all the pretties. The details of the necklaces, bracelets and earrings will tell you what each piece is made of — elements like…
