throwback thursday: washbowl + pitcher set

So, Gigi had one of these sets once upon a time... it lived in a guest bathroom!  

I'd probably put it in a guest room, with some fun soaps, travel-sized toiletries, and a few wash clothes.

currently coveting: moroccan flair

 True story... I'm currently coveting Moroccan-inspired designs.  The fun colors, the geometrics motifs, and the textured layers...  comfort in the form of an abundance of pillows and luxury taking shape in  custom, hand-made pieces.  

Here are some of my favorite spaces with Moroccan flair...  





Need to add some Moroccan flair to your space?  Check out this corner shelf... 
It's gorgeous and could work in just about any room.

weekend find: serving cart

Sorry for disappearing.  I'm back and I have a lot of catching up to do!   
First, thank you for your sweet responses to my last post.  From time to time, Splash of Lime becomes a space for documenting more than just Gigi's great finds.

And second, check out this pretty serving cart Gigi picked up last weekend... 


I love it and see it being super versatile...

a day late and a dollar short.

Y'all.  I had really good intentions.  I wanted to publish this post on Mother's Day.  I even imagined sending Gigi a special link in lieu of a card... 

Well... turns out, I'm more than a day late and any attempt I might ever make at communicating just how special Gigi truly is will be feeble at best.  Nonetheless... I'll try to do just that here and now...

First... some talking points...

Gigi is Gigi to most everyone she knows.  No really, in addition to me, my brother and sister-in-law, and two impossibly handsome and precious grand-babies, she's an OB/GYN nurse and and tells every single patient, "You're my daughter."  //  She is the ultimate giver and almost always shows up with unexpected prizes.  //  She houses a clothes closet at work for her pregnant patients and we can't take her anywhere without her going to the "baby" section.  //  Gigi loves junking and calls it her "therapy."  //  Gigi loves all things old and finds beauty in things most people discard.  //  She is married to her high school sweetheart... my sweet daddy... they met while "cruising" on West Lebanon Street in Mount Airy.  //  She has an overwhelming blue + white collection and can pretty much tell you when and where she acquired each piece and often how much she paid for it.  //  She sometimes wears nursing clothes late into the evening and continues to wear her nursing pin every. single. day.  //  When she's not in nursing clothes, she lives in Tom's.  Classics.  But the sparkly ones are maybe her favorites.  //  Gigi loves the beach, but she spends more time junking than she does in the sand.  //  Gigi hates to cook, but she loves her babies so much that she makes our favorites each time we come home.  I encourage you to ask her to make strawberry dumplings and/or banana-less pudding.  //  She is the laundry queen.  Not even kidding.  I don't know what she does or how she does it... but I sometimes hesitate to wear clothes she's washed because I don't want them to lose their Gigi-ness.  //  Gigi is also the queen of bed making.  Two words: hospital corners.  //  She pulls for the Tar Heels and once left her Carolina tree up for an entire year in our very Carolina-y sunroom.  //  She doesn't go to Chapel Hill for a home game without making the trek to the Shrunken Head for a button.  //  Gigi is the baby in her family... and she'll remind you and her siblings every chance she gets.  //  She grew up a tomboy and legend has it that she sometimes refused to wear a shirt.  //  She's a shag dancer and a Tush Push champion.  //  Her eyes are the most magical blue.  //  She loves fiercely and selflessly and is the kindest, most giving person I know.

And next... some of the things she continues to teach me... in no particular order...

Love on ALL people and love them big.  //  Trust God's timing.  //  Value family and serve them at every opportunity.  //  Honor your husband.  //  Be gracious.  //  Help others.  //  Work hard and don't ask anyone to take on a chore, you yourself wouldn't do.  //  Mind your manners.  "Ma'am" and "Sir" never go out of style.  //  Arrive early.  Stay late.  (Especially where work is involved).  //  Empty all the trashcans before you have company.  //  Take care of your eyes and turn a lamp on while reading.  //  And while on the subject... lamps always. always. always. trump overhead lights.  //  Take careful consideration when junking.  Go slow.  Look closely.  Hold on tight when you find something good.  //  Check the clearance section first.   //  But splurge on the pieces you love and you'll continue to love forever.  //  Never meet a stranger.  //  Offer a kind word to everyone you meet.  //  Smile.  And mean it.  //  Salt.  Tequila.  Lime.  //  Write thank you notes.  //  Keep stamps on hand.  //  Overdress.  //  Never leave the house without a pair of earrings (and your lipstick, though I'm still working on that one).  //  Make your bed everyday.  //  Be a vigilant record keeper.  //  Cherish old photographs.  //  It's completely acceptable to be the first one on the dance floor.  //  Travel when the opportunity arises.  //  Be fiercely loyal when it comes to the people you love.  //  Say "I love you" every chance you get.

Gigi,  I love you!
Happy belated Mother's Day.






         

weekend find: elephant stool

Look at this guy!  
Gigi just scooped him up over the weekend and he's begging for a new home, preferably with lots of natural light...  


Imagine him with a pretty fern, spilling over!
