Christmas at Preston & Richard’s

Our household experienced a bit of a crisis over the weekend. I didn’t mention it yesterday because I was still in the processing mode of “omg, did that really just happen”. Our sweet puppy Ives unsuccessfully chased a very frightened black cat over our fence and into the outside yard, which could also now be...

Style Story… Ada Smith

Simply put, today’s post is very special to me. My grandmother, Ada Smith, mother of my mother Jessee and known by her grandchildren as “Day-Day”, has been a precious and profound role model for me all my life! She is gracious, kind, elegant, and humble. When I asked her if I could photograph her apartment, a place in...
Christmas Cheer!

Christmas Cheer!

Merry belated Christmas, everyone! I am writing this post from a cozy place on my in-law’s sofa with a belly full of Southern-style Cracker Barrel breakfast and sitting beside my husband. It’s wonderful! Between my plate full of work projects and David’s busy school schedule, we’ve been hustling quite a lot for the past several months....

Winter Berry

A moment outside created the opportunity for admiration and a quick winter photo shoot. Feelin’ a bit like a bright winter berry amidst the dreary snow! Photo Credit: David...

Family, friends, familiar places and delicious cuisine filled each of our days and all mixed together with a pinch of Tennessee snow! This has been our Christmas at home. Photos by Hilary Walker P.S. The detail shots above are from...

Dear Santa, Meet Zara

Dearest Santa, I would kindly like to introduce you to my new best friend. Her name is Zara and she has me smitten!! In my Christmas list preparations, I have become completely distracted by her sharp shapes, classic colors, and sophisticated styling. I wouldn’t want to pull you from your seasonal duties, but I think...

Holly & Jolly!

Despite my hint of a bias against Christmas on Monday, the truth is I love the tradition of gift-giving that comes with the Nativity season…considering the likes and dislikes, pass-times and pleasures of a close friend or family member in order to find the perfect little gift…I just love it! And I especially love making...
