I'm enjoying the last of our holiday sparkle before welcoming in the New Year. I wanted to pop in and wish you all a wonderful New Year's eve. May 2009 be filled with joyful discoveries, new adventures, and love. I look forward to returning with regular posts next week and sharing the New Year and all its promise together. xo ~Suzanne

Whew! Most of my holiday to-dos are checked off the list and I'm actually able to enojoy a bit of the holiday magic amidst the holiday rush. Today, I'm off to find a few stocking stuffers and will then put the finishing touches on my gift wrapping. I opted for a super simple look this year--brown paper packaging with red and white accents. I do, however, love theses wraps-- courtesy of some flickr and blogging friends. Perhaps next year...

Hi everyone. Boy have I missed you all. It's been a crazy week! I would share all of the lively details with you, but I don't think you would find a post on "How to Create Felt Donkey Ears for this Weekend's Christmas Pageant" all that compelling. Instead, I will share this bit of winter magic with you all...

Happy Monday everyone. Better late then never-that's what I say! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and am so thrilled you all enjoyed the interview with Katie . It was also nice to *meet* some of her friends--thanks for stopping by.

Three words that best describe Savannah
Quirky, Historic, Artistic
I used to love heading out to Tybee Island Beach on the weekends. The North Beach Grill located next to the black and white lighthouse on Tybee is great for plodding over in your sandy feet for great beach drinks! Be sure to order the chips and/or plantains and salsa which are incredible!
Who is/are your favorite artist(s) (can be local or not) ? And why?
My favorite artists who are actually located in Savannah are Tiffani Taylor, Sara Neuburger of The Small Object and Marcus Kenney
What is/are your favorite local shop(s)?
shopSCAD, of course! -original artwork and designs by student, faculty and alumni of the Savannah College of Art and Design!
@home Vintage and vintage inspired housewares and gifts-fantastic ribbon, paper, and millinery selection.
Wild Fibre -Delightful shop with an always bountiful selection of yarns and supplies for knitting, weaving, crochet and felting.
-Best kept local secret
Sweet Potatoes restaurant on the southside of Savannah. Its a bit of a drive to get out there but their amazing southern style cooking is well worth it!
-An ideal spot to linger over lunch:
I adore Soho South Cafe on Liberty street. Soho is part art gallery, bookshop and restaurant. Order everything on the menu!

When visiting Savannah, don't miss:
I just don't understand the cattle-call that lines the street everyday at one very popular southern-style restaurant. I recommend getting your southern food fix at the quaint Mrs. Wilkes Boardinghouse restaurant on Jones Street. Then continue shopping along Whitaker Street-Madame Chrysanthemum, One Fish, Two Fish, and Circa Lighting, Arcanum and La Paperie.
I get homesick for Savannah when I think about...
My friends and the food! I always get a cozy and nostalgic feeling when I drive back into the downtown under the canopy of Spanish Moss. I miss the big-city feel of the relatively small and charming historic district.
If you had an opportunity to live anywhere else in the world, where would we find you?
I would love to live in a small village in England, France, or Italy for a few months out of the year. I think I'd enjoy tending to a cottage and farm like that of Beatrix Potter.
