Lulie Wallace Art {my birthday present}

Has it really been almost a month since my last blog post??!!
Sorry y'all! Well, sorry to my few, dear faithful readers...... :)

Today, I wanted to share some photographs I took while at Lulie Wallace's studio. 
I had been perusing her art on a few blogs and on Pinterest when I came to find out that she lives and paints here in Charleston, SC (she's also from Columbus, GA where some of my good friends live)!!!! 
And this girl has TALENT!

It was getting close to my birthday and I had written a list of gift ideas for Matt, when I realized, why not get a painting?! It's an original piece of art, can be looked at all the time, and that way I can start my collection :) So, I immediately emailed Lulie and asked if I could come down to Redux Contemporary Art Center and take some photographs for my blog, purchase a painting, and meet her in person!
And that's just what I did.

I love all of the paint on the floor

Lulie holding the painting Matt got me for my birthday!

Unfortunately, I wanted to write a blog post with some Q&A with Lulie, but she hasn't responded to any of my emails. Her artwork is GREAT and she was really sweet when we met. But what can I do? I don't want to be bothersome!!! Regardless, she has a wonderful talent and creates beautiful pieces of art. I would still purchase another one someday!

Since I didn't get an interview I wanted to share a few articles:

and I've read that Urban Outfitters is making one of her paintings into a print!!! 
I will be getting that one for sure!!!

Live FashionABLE


I received these 4 beautiful scarves in the mail the other day and I was SO excited to get them!! I think I have a slight obsession with scarves......I may or may not own 30......HAHA!!
What I like about these scarves is that each scarf has it's own story and is personally made by someone. Not mass produced. Not sold in 5,000 stores. Not made by huge machines. 
AND I love that they help support a worthy cause!! 

One of my friends from college moved to Nashville not long after I did (we share the same major and were roomies my last yr at UK) to attend grad school and worked with the Mocha Club (you may have heard of this project if you've ever attended a Dave Barnes' concert) ;)  She so graciously mailed me some scarves from the bin. 

Anyhow, I wanted to share with you about this wonderful non-profit and the blessing it has become for many.

Here are close up shots of my new (YAY!) scarves : 
MESELU in Sage Green

ETANESH in Jade Green

DEMBER in Plum/Teal

ETANESH in Ivory

I am lovin my new scarves! They are super soft and versatile! :) The striped one is my favorite followed by the ivory one (it's stretchy)! All scarves come in a variety of colors, textures, and designs and they are all made with 100% cotton. Go check 'em out!!!!

& I'm pretty sure your mom wants a scarf for Mother's Day!!!!
