How can it be almost summer’s end?! Snapped this colorful little gathering spot on one of my morning walks in Beaufort NC a couple weeks back. Would make a cute little watercolor ️ . #americasprettiestsmalltown #beaufortnc @beaufort.nc #frontstreet #taylorscreek #liveoak
Love this fab @graciestudio wallpaper in my chic cousin’s Beaufort NC powder room. The powder room is the ideal place for a big decorative splash, and this is one! Meanwhile i am gearing up for a post on the beautiful houses in beautiful Beaufort…
My handsome sweetheart and me bustin’ loose at the @stmarksinthevalley #summerclassic on Saturday night. Raised buckets of money for our church and community, with gorgeous food from @valleypiggery and gorgeous wine from all around us @santabarbaracountywine We had a ball. #summerclassic2021
For yesterday’s family wedding. So pretty. More to come. Hope you all had a great weekend. Here the handywork of the talented team of @kellyodomflowers , and of course @God
Beautiful view of Taylor’s Creek from the porch of our hotel. Beaufort has really grown up. When i was little I think there was a Menhaden factory near this spot. The charm and grace of this pretty old fishing town remain intact thank goodness, and there are some beautiful houses along the creek. I’ll post a few later. Meanwhile it’s a good day for a wedding!
Such a pretty group of arrangements for a family wedding weekend kickoff party. So happy and excited for them all. Everyone has to be tested and no one here tonight not vax’d. This is the new normal and it is fine with me.
What a good dog and what a good life. 17. Blind the last 7 and deaf part of that time. But she managed. Swam in the pond. Still retrieved! (though it took a while…) And Lord knows she loved His Grace and he loved her. Rest in peace dear Stella. @tomdittmer
Did y’all see post of @thelesliejordan singing “Country Roads” with @travishoward the other day. It was funny and sweet like most of his posts. This pic I snapped on the way home to the ranch the other day reminded me of it. #takemehomecountryroads . . #santaynezvalley #santaynez #santaynezsunset #iwanttopaintthis
So row-mantic! ️ And so nice to see the rowboats out again and funny to watch them and the occasional (gentle) collision. Thought this was a nice composition for a painting, but might want to make the water blue and the boats red. Otherwise it’s a lot of green… Hope your week is smooth sailing. . #rowingincentralpark #rowboats #soromantic #sanremo
Announcing Art of the Soul – a weekend retreat at beautiful Rancho La Zaca, October 28-30. Our souls are always speaking to us, guiding us to our true, essential selves. Listening is an art, a creative act of the deepest purpose and healing. Join the brilliant @souldisciple and me in this small, sweet, (safe!) and yes soulful retreat to learn tools and techniques to access your soul voice in the enchanted setting of Rancho La Zaca in the Santa Ynez Valley of California. And as we nourish our minds and spirits, the inimitable @chefstephvalentine will feed us with her gorgeous, fresh, and healthy, fare! Who says spirituality can’t be beautiful AND delicious? And fun. I might even bust out my blonde wig (see previous post ICYMI)… Link in my bio for more info, or DM me for details. Oh, the art is a detail from a messy plein air study by moi. Soul work can be messy too, but there’s always beauty at its heart. . #bringyourlighttotheworld #retreatsatrancholazaca #workshopsatrancholazaca #rancholazaca #angeleneprice #marthabeckwayfinder #artofthesoul #findyourpurpose #soulvoice #hearyoursoulvoice #healyourspirit
At the risk of #centerpiecefatigue I give you one more. A small dinner on our friends’ last night with us and the eve of my departure for Atlanta and other places East. I do hate to leave the garden at its peak (and His Grace, who is always at his peak️) but family and work call, and I answer gladly. This arrangement, btw, comprises #dahlias (of course), #coneflowers #delphinium #zinnias and a few #roses just because. Oh and #love The combo of pink and blue was deliberate to compliment the #haviland china, though barely visible here. . #dinneralfresco #afewfriendsfordinner #rancholazaca #francesschultzflowers #centerpiece
