As Southern As It Gets
While traveling outside the South is always a treat, author H. Jackson Brown, Jr. of Life’s Little Instruction Book fame, came up with 1,071 reasons to never leave the South. His new release, As Southern As It Gets, celebrates all the many reasons he — and we — love to call the South home. From crab boils and Krispy Kreme to Jason Aldean and Georgia peaches, he leaves no stone unturned when it comes to the countless reasons to love living where we do. Find it at your local bookseller for $16.99.
Portable wine glass
You may have seen Goverre wine glasses on “Shark Tank,” where three of the sharks bought in. Well these adult “sippy cups” are popular with good reason. These portable, stemless wine glasses are phthalate- and lead-free, and the silicon sleeve ensures they won’t break if they take a tumble. We found them at Tinker & Company in Richmond, VA, but you can also buy them online for $24 here or click here to find a store that carries them near you.
FOR THE HOME
Antiqued brass chandelier
Fall in love with your home all over again when you hang this gem from the ceiling. The antiqued brass sputnik chandelier holds 20 bulbs and spans more than 3 feet in width. It’s splurge-worthy, for sure! Find it for $1,200 at Blue Print in Dallas, TX, or find it on their website here.
Annieglass Lake Tray
We couldn’t love this serving tray any more if we tried! Made of recycled Annieglass, the shape and color definitely make it a conversation piece, and the platinum accents add to the appeal. Whether you use it for appetizers, candles or any other display purpose, it will be a piece to treasure for years to come. Find it at SOUTH in Chapel Hill, NC, or at the SOUTH website for $97.
Brahms Mount throw
Splash some color on your couch with this Brahms Mount cotton throw blanket in handsome blue herringbone with a lovely hand-twisted, knotted rope fringe. It is as charming as it is cozy and will add an inviting feel to your living room. And a major plus: It’s machine-washable! Find it for $243 at Lisa Mallory Linens in Memphis, TN.
Vintage-inspired vinyl floor cloths
We’re in love with anything that makes life a little easier, and these vinyl floor cloths do just that! With their vintage-inspired look and abundance of patterns, you can add the appeal of a rug without the constant worry of getting it dirty. The vinyl material is easy to clean and a great solution if you have pets or particularly messy kiddos. Pick your favorite out at Merridian Home Furnishings, with locations in Nashville and Louisville, KY for $275 to $369.
Horse Lines print
When you fall in love with a piece of affordable art, it’s such a thrill, and that’s exactly how we feel about this piece by Charleston, SC artist Cory McBee. The aptly named “Horse Lines” print measures 8-by-10-inches and leaves a half-inch for framing. The graphic design is printed on top-quality paper using professional archival inks to ensure it holds its color for years to come. Find it for $25 at Mitchell Hill in Charleston or order online here.
