  • Thanksgiving & Beyond

    We often write about ways to make your tabletop stand out, and we’re right at the time of year when most people start taking stock of what they have, and what they really need before the Thanksgiving cooking marathon begins. This year, we wanted to do something a little different, since our decorating tips from last year still hold. One integral component of any holiday table is The Serving Dish. The things foods sit in while hungry hands attack it. This month on the blog, we’re featuring Farmhouse Pottery to help you tackle the question, how many casserole dishes are too many...
  • Inside the Studio with Liz Hanson

    As I walk into Liz Hanson’s Ivy home, a few minutes behind Karen and Andrea, I notice immediately that its just that – a home. The door was left open for me, just enough to say, “come on in.” I can hear laughter from somewhere inside, while a lazy lab greets me at the door. There are no pretenses here. Liz Hanson's Ivy, Charlottesville home. I take a left and find everyone waiting for me in the living room. Liz, who always has an air of “grooviness”, shows us the turtles that used to be her daughter's, but who now live...
  • The Great Escape

    As we approach the summer solstice, the days are getting longer and hotter. Here in Charlottesville, that means a mass exodus to escape the oppressive humidity. It’s time for getaways, sneak-aways, and vacations! Many of us head to our coastlines of choice, some head overseas, and some head inland, exploring National Parks and monuments (while they still exist…). But travel can be stressful, and no one should be stressed in the summertime! So we put together a list of our favorite get-away ready items in the shop to help you streamline your travel experience. Let’s start with the worst part...
  • An Extra Special Mother's Day Gift Guide

    Ok, can we all agree on something? It’s been a truly beautiful spring so far in Charlottesville, am I right? And this month on the blog, we wanted to give a big S/O to spring and, just in time for Mother’s Day, clue you in on some fabulous spring gift ideas for Mom. We do gift guides relatively often here on the blog – we’re here to help 😉 – but this time, we’re shaking things up a bit. We asked our lovely team of ladies to each give a piece of advice handed down from their mothers, along with the item or...
  • The Spring Table

    We wrote last fall about how to create an incredible fall/holiday table, and we wanted to update that post this month with tips on how to freshen your table game for spring. Our first piece of advice remains the same – start with a neutral base. Image credit: http://www.coconutandquinoa.com We carry a lot of tablecloths that fit the “neutral” bill, but our owner Karen has a particular favorite. Before she even had a storefront here in Charlottesville, she knew she would have Transylvanian Images in her store. Their collection of hand-woven products are made from recycled, vintage fabrics that were...
  • Spring has sprung...

    When new things come in the store, you can almost always expect to see it pop up on our social media feeds. Instagram has rapidly become our primary mechanism for letting you know what’s the what with new products in the store…but it also means that you might not always get the update, especially if the product sells out before we get it up on the website, so this month on the blog, we are letting you know what’s new in the store, what we’re excited about, and what’s on its way – a spring preview, if you will. First...
  • A Valentine's Day Gift Guide

    Among holidays, Valentine’s Day is perhaps the most engineered. Overtly geared towards consumerism, it’s hard to deny that the whole process can feel insincere. Know this: even the most anti-Valentine’s Day of women (or men!) still appreciate feeling special. Yes, it’s a day you are forced to express a sentiment, and yes, you really should express that sentiment regularly instead of just once a year, but the truth is, everyone gets caught up. Work, kids, car trouble, political turmoil, dinner indecision, the mess you haven’t cleaned up yet…it all adds up. A special day set aside to remind your partner...
  • A Cozy Snow Day In ❄️

    Brrrr...it's finally cold enough to believe it's winter in Virginia. With the weather set to stay this way for the foreseeable future, we thought we'd share some of our favorite things that make staying home extra warm and cozy when it's nasty out (or so cold that the air hurts). THE MORNING BREW Farmhouse Pottery Silo Mug There's nothing more satisfying than that first cup of coffee. I feel (and say) often that every sip of coffee in the early morning is salvation. Whether you use a keurig for quickness and ease, or Aeropress each cup for optimal flavor extraction...

  • Holiday Gift Guide Series: For Him

    Often with men, it feels like you either have the perfect gift idea, or no idea at all.  Men, much more than women, tend to make timeless purchases without much influence from trends in the zeitgeist. Upgrading everyday objects is a good idea for anyone, but particularly when you are buying for men, getting something beautifully well made is the best way to ensure your gift will be cherished. 1. The Moore & Giles Rangertan backpack.  This is a thing of beauty that will still look just as good ten years from now. 2. We've had tongue and cheek flasks from Izola for awhile...
