The Southern Life Collection

December 1, 2010  |  Southern Fete News

It’s the night before you’ll read this at 10:38 and I’m just now sitting down to write this post…and finish loading pictures of the collection on the website. I am beyond exhausted and unfortunately no where near simplified or enjoying life’s little pleasures. As I mentioned Monday, I created the Southern Life Collection with a purpose: to encourage others AND myself to live simply and enjoying real life without being distracted by all the stuff. If you are anything like me, it’s still very much a work in progress! : )

So on with it!

We had the wonderful Trent Bailey, a native of South Louisiana now in New York, shoot our collection. You saw the inspiration, now see our collection and shoot: Sherlock Holmes-inspired!

Our everyday notecards: Thank You!, Hello There, Happy Birthday and Thinking of You. All come with kraft envelopes!

Our perpetual calendar to keep track of birthdays and if you’re a wedding planner like me, to keep track of past couple’s wedding dates to send anniversary cards.

Plan your meals for the week, your grocery list and your to-do with our memo pads.

The Gift Set combines our everyday stationery with calling cards and gift tags. The linen box makes me smile!

We’ve got a quote from Julia Child to get you inspired in the kitchen. Our acrylic recipe box comes with 50 recipe cards.


Our 2011 calendar!! Each month has a silhouette along with a quote about one of life’s little pleasures. We have it available in color and kraft!

Check out the collection here to see close ups and get details and pricing on Southern Life.

Leave a comment and let us know what your favorite item is in the new collection! We’ll pick one winner at random from the comments to receive our 2011 calendar!
