It's good to be home...

After three days of travel, I'm finally back in Georgia. It felt so good to walk inside to my little sanctuary yesterday and to see my dogs I've missed so much and relax on my back porch. I can settle back into this Southern life real quickly. So today I want to celebrate the South and the feeling of home sweet home with two new artists I've recently stumbled upon... 

The first is Stephanie Creekmur of Nashville, Tennessee. She's created these lovely works of art that are part of a 15 piece Sweet Southern Charm prints collection. As she states on her site, her shop is "founded by a girl who loves paper, all things Southern and still believes in the handwritten note." 

The prints are offered in various colors in both 8 x 10 or 11 x 14. Visit her site to learn more. I think I need to get that Gimme Some Sugar print for my kitchen. So sweet, right? Click here for a chance to win a free print.  

On the plane yesterday, I grabbed a copy of the NY Times to read the Thursday Home section that is always one of my favorites. I found a blurb written about Mary Dearing Lazarus and Luciana Consonni-Pellizzer, who are the brainchilds behind Caldrea home cleaning products. Well, they've decided to expand their line and follow their other passion of retro souvenir dish towels...

Mary and Luciana recreated the vintage look of tea towels that they love so much to offer state towels that celebrate our home and sense of place. They've completed 28 of the 50 states so far, including the above Southern states. What a great hostess gift - or a gift to ourselves. Why not? Indulge a little... and celebrate how good it feels to be home.
