Monogram Obsessed

To say that I like monograms would be an understatement. I have my monogram plastered on my planner, cell phone cover, sunglasses, lower back tat. Ok just kidding. No lower back tat.

When I saw that the Nicole and Sara were hosting a monogram swap, I signed up immediately! 

I was paired with Maddie from The Whimsy One and y'all...she's such a sweetheart! Everyone loves getting goodies in the mail, but it's also awesome getting to make new friends!

Look at this adorable casserole tote she sent my way!


Now if only she could send some of her cooking skills my way too. Maddie has mad skills in the kitchen. I only have skills at the kitchen table when it comes to the eating portion. :)

Thanks again Maddie! I can't wait to take this beauty to the next gathering.

Southern Staples

Every Mississippi girl knows what you're talking about when you say the words McCarty or Peter. Two of the most recognizable names in the pottery world in 'round these parts.

I had never been to the Delta except the few playoff games in high school. Those were always at night and always with a police escort, so I jumped at the chance to see the Delta in a different perspective. 

Our Junior Auxiliary chapter takes an annual trip to McCarty's, Peter's and our NAJA office.  Here are the pics from McCarty's.

These pretties came home with me. They make my counter look so much better!

There are beautiful gardens behind the shop. I wish I had time to just sit under a tree and read a book. It was so peaceful and gorgeous!

There's also a little cafe a few blocks away. They serve all the food with McCarty and made me want to do the same in my own home. It was a good thing I had already left the store!

What is your favorite brand of pottery? I have created a large Christmas wish list after that one trip! :)

Linking up with Logan, Sami, MSWB & Leeann.
