Welcome to South House Designs where we
Celebrate Creative Doings & All the Joys of Life


“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” — Anne of Green Gables

Crisp mornings opening to warm sunny afternoons
— pure bliss!
Cinnamon, nutmeg & allspice
— sprinkled on everything!
Boots, blazers, sweaters & scarves
— lots and lotsa scarves (with pearls, of course)!

Now if we could just do something about these shorter days:
productivity down, snuggling up. Okay, maybe not such a bad thing.

Need to DIY a new large tufted ottoman for all that snuggling? Or maybe tips for a wine tasting party?



And if an alumni watch party is on the agenda, check out this tute for a rousing centerpiece.

Yippee! Cover Stockings!

Woo! Hoo! Country Living Chose my Banners!

Woo! Hoo! Country Living Chose my Banners!

Yes, I’m honored to have designed the stockings (and the tree skirt that is barely peeking out from under that bounty of beautiful packages) for the 2013 Better Homes & Gardens Christmas Ideas.

And double bonus: another set of my stockings appear on Page 100 in the beautiful home of designer and popular blogger Sarah Macklem. It’s like filling, frosting AND sprinkles!!!

Among the thousands of products submitted, my chalk cloth banners were selected to be featured as a fun, innovative product the editors would recommend to their readers.


As always, you’re invited to Join The Party and visit my Shop!
