well isn't that nice

I got all teary reading the kind things Grace said about me and my shop in the October 18 post on Martha Stewart Weddings blog.  I cut and pasted the post below. 

Grace Bonney's Décor

Posted by Shira Savada, Real Weddings Editor: Martha Stewart Weddings

Today we've got a double dose of our behind-the-scenes series about Grace and Aaron's wedding. Grace bulked up her standard rentals and enhanced her décor with the help of two great shop owners. And in case you wanted to revisit Grace's first mention of incorporating vintage pieces into her wedding, you can reread the post here.

Grace: Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without the help and generosity of Paula from Paris Market & Brocante and Liz from @home vintage general. Both women really embody the welcoming spirit of Savannah and were incredibly kind to let us borrow such beautiful vintage and antique pieces. 

When it comes to Liz from @home, I can't say enough nice things. I’ve known her for a while now, and she's the heart and soul of the Savannah scene for me. Her support of local students, designers, and businesses is incredible. Liz’s store feels like the sort of place you want to move into, so I knew I’d turn to her for help with the wedding. And thankfully, she was kind enough to let me borrow some really key pieces, like the vintage petticoat dryer and the green-tiered plant stand. I think people thought I was a little nutty wanting to use the petticoat dryer for the escort cards, but I loved the way it expanded and thought the miniature clothespins we used to attach the cards was such a fun play on the idea of drying clothes. Liz’s store is always full of unexpected but beautiful items, and I felt really lucky to be able to use a few of them for the big day.
