Yum Sighting: Kathleen's Kottage

When I walked up to of one of my favorite shops, I was so excited to see our YUM sticker {along with one for Heartworks Kids} on the door. We've loved Kathleen's Kottage and its owners, Will and Kathleen, for years, and our home is full of furniture and accessories we've purchased there. Kathleen's has a great selection of distressed furniture and frames, artwork, shells and more. It's located just before the 331 bridge on the beach side. Here are some photos I snapped during my visit. Forgive the quality - they were taken with my phone.

We like to think we coined the term, "blogalicious." Whether or not we did is not too important, but we do love following local blogs. Here are some of our faves...


Willow Chic Boutique - Owners Cindy Krutz & Celia Roberts are gorgeous, sweet girls who have a keen sense of style from head to toe. They just got in a new shipment of Tory Burch wedges, and oh my goodness! These will be your favorite shoes ever, so run run run to their shop.


Goode Green - Sheila Goode, Pizza by the Sea's official photographer, captures amazing moments and transforms them into works of art. Her "Anthro" style is what drew us to her, but her talent and intoxicating personality keep us coming back for more.


South Walton Scene - Go here to learn everything and anything you want to know about our little area - events, restaurants, stuff to buy and what owner Jill Gaupin thinks about this and that. You'll love it as much as we love Jill!


Simply Seleta - Add a bit of style to your day with friend Seleta's daily inspirations on design, love and life. She can even make a post about her kitchen windowsill interesting!


Mix Mingle Glow - Party planner extraordinaire Robyn Bomar chats about the events she conceptualizes for locals and celebrities alike. From the most amazing weddings to kids' birthday parties, Robyn is THE event guru of the Emerald Coast.


Gigi's Fabulous Kids' Fashions & Toys - This has always been one of our favorite local shops, and now Owner Geri Golding {aka: Gigi} has outdone herself with the new blog {she calls it a glob}. It's as fabulous as she and her store are!


Ophelia - For the most adorable swimwear, cover ups and accessories, visit Ophelia in Grayton Beach. Owner Tori Von Hoene is not only one of the sweetest people you'll meet, she has the cutest swimwear shop in town.


Tracery Interiors - This blog will help inspire you to create the perfect space. It is also our favorite place to pick up the perfect gift. Tracery's selection of candles, birds, pillows and other treasures is to die for! We always love seeing owner Paige and her crew at the pizza place, too.


Urban Grace Interiors - We're pretty sure this is where our blog obsession began. Local Erika Powell has designed some of the most amazing spaces and has been featured in Coastal Living and Southern Living magazines, among others. She also has the most adorable baby girl!


ModGIRL - Mississippi cutie Jennifer Hunter has designed some of the most beautiful interiors in our area. On her blog, she showcases some of those designs as well as her daily inspirations.

Sunday Best

Could this photo be any more gorgeous? Just another Sheila Goode masterpiece from our recent photo shoot. Of course it didn't hurt that the model is quite the little heart breaker. We hope everyone had a great Easter! We had a nice day off, but we're happy to be back serving all of our friends who are here on Spring Break.
