Well, in my typical fashion, I immediately proceeded to lose the battery charger to my camera as soon as I got it in the mail. After lots and lots of searching, I found that it drove back to Atlanta with Collin's parents in their car some time ago, so I am waiting again to post new projects... but look forward to some fun posts about our new "garden," and my do-it-yourself summer wardrobe!
However, I do have some pictures I managed to get off the camera before the battery died of the new store I work at in Savannah. It's an adorable boutique called Number Four Eleven, but I have a hard time describing exactly what we do. Basically, Courtland and Claire (the owners) can help you with anything that goes inside your house! Below are some pictures of the most popular things in the store...
Atop this vintage wooden chest are some cute pick-up items: wooden birds and apples, frames, gold detailed glasses.. and you can see a round topiary in the background. Our store is located off Whitaker Street near Forsyth Park, right in the middle of Savannah's "Design District." For that reason, we get a lot of out-of-towners who like to find things they can fit back in their suitcases!
These are some of my favorite things in the store - Turkish Foutas. They come in the most subtle shades of grey and ivory, and the more you wash and use them, the softer they get. They come in a bath towel/beach wrap size and also a hand towel/placemat size.
These gorgeous earrings are by Coralia Leets, and they look beautiful on everyone! We special ordered them for a few regular customers who had requested them, but everyone who comes in the store is immediately drawn to them. These are the teardrop earrings in lime green chalcedony.
Monograms are what No. Four Eleven is known for. A big part of my job at the store is to work the 15 needle Tajima embroidery machine (anyone who knows me knows this is my heaven!). These burlap totes practically FLY out the door... for $38 including the monogram, I think everyone in Savannah has one!
Courtland's specialty is hand-drawing gothic monograms that we can then digitize and embroider on anything - silk pillows, bedding (we carry Matouk and John Robshaw), table linens (Sferra), towels, etc. They are detailed and beautiful, and much more inspiring for someone like me who isn't really into the ordinary monogram.
It's a great store to work at, and I love how the style is a blend of beach home and classic Victorian Savannah. If you saw anything in these pictures you are interested in, just go shopping on the website!
