Back from vacay and a GIVE AWAY!!!!

Sooo... After Hooper and my jam packed install in Athens, I met the hubby for a little Charleston getaway before heading home. Yes, I was just jet setting in the south. If you have never been to Charleston, S.C. plan your vacay now! We stayed at the Elliot House which just so happens to be next door to Husk which just so happens to be Bon Appetit best new restaurant in America in 2011. I am no foodie BUT my food was darn good and the waiter talked us into pig tails (yup, you read that right) and with my life long exposure to redneck southern fare, I found them divine.
 Who wouldn't want to eat in a beautiful old home turned into a restaurant? The atmosphere was amazing.

Anyhoo... Enough about that! Before leaving for Charleston, Hooper and I were sent a few products from Erie Drive (see here)to try out and review.  Erie Drive is an online shopping site full of unique, fun items. We chose to try out their Bazaar bag and give away their Thomas Paul sea urchin plates. (we promise we didn't try those first!)The bag arrived just in time for me to take on our trip.

How cute is this bag! At first I was going to carry it for additional stuff (toiletries, hair dryer, etc...) BUT, I quickly saw the value in the size and dumped my purse into it. I got lots of comments and was able to throw small purchases inside as well. (save a tree)

While shopping on King Street, Jeff and I popped into Scout and Mollys where we met the husband and wife owners. They were the nicest couple ever and Sarah not only asked about my bag but she gave it the thumbs up. Considering their store is full of great clothes, jeans and accessories I'd say that was a good review.
(I bought the cutest clutch for the fall... and threw it in my bag!)

Oh look, my bag fit nicely in the bike basket and held my camera while Jeff and I rode around downtown Charleston picking out which house we'd like to own. If Jeff and I ever moved to Charleston we would def be friends with the Scout and Molly people!
The only negative is I have no pics of Jeff with the bag... He was not willing to pose with a large pink and yellow bag with Ganesh on it... hmmm? Don't know why?

And... no you can not have my bag (get yo own bag here) but we are giving away these Thomas Paul sea life dinner plates. (Which we also LOVE!!)

With labor day right around the corner, these plates are the perfect addition to any outdoor par-tay!
You know we love an outdoor space (see here and here) and with cookouts being the going thing for celebrating Labor Day these plates would be perfect on a picnic table!

Remember this room? See here.
This client needs those plates for breakfast in the sun room! Forget Labor Day... this is everyday.

Also loving this porch kitchen .(nicer then my only kitchen)
Plates would look great!!!...-A
