Willow Gathering Retreat Gifts

Julie Dodds

We want each guest to feel special as he or she looks forward to the French Gathering this coming May. In planning for the gift box, we wanted to nourish each sense - sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste.

See what is included:  

 ~ a 2017 calendar and set of notecards from Emily's exclusive Paint Palette collection

 ~ a sage, rosemary, and lavender sachet bundled in a vintage French linen napkin

 ~ a burnished mini-bell garland

 ~ a darjeeling, willow bark, lemon balm leaf, lavender tea

 ~ a brochure of the Chateau showing the grounds and interior

A Willow Gathering

Julie Dodds

We had an evening to remember just before the days became shorter and the nights cooler. This gathering was warm and content - like a slow sip on that last bit of spicy wassail. Friends gathered and enjoyed art and flowers as well as a dinner complete with candles and lights. 

We want all of our gatherings to have love, closeness and intentionality - our mission, our vision.

 

Completely Showered (A shower for Baby Dodds)

Julie Dodds

I had the most fun time last Sunday at my baby shower. It is happening so soon, and these sweet friends throwing and attending a shower for us have heightened our anticipation even more. Many people are to thank for making this happen - my lovely hosts Morgan, Jessica, Angela, Suzie, Maria; Sophia Invitations for the signage, GB&D for the donuts, and of course my talented friends who create lovely invitations, yummy food, perfect flower crowns - so, so fun. I just had to share some of these photos.

On Turning 30

Julie Dodds

Look - I don't really get the hype about joining a new decade, but I do have a few things I'd like to say. 

 

My life is different than I thought it would be; and I love it. My husband, job and life are wonderful blessings. 


Here are 30 things about me you may/probably/maybe didn't already know about me.

Love to travel....I've searched flights to Nova Scotia, PEI and New Brunswick just today - flights are expensive right now, fyi. 

Favorite color is Green - every room needs some green

I/we aren't pet people; and am fine with that. 

I mountain bike now? weird. 

Love bad fast food like Taco Bell and Bojangles

Love to act in a local play someday - or a movie, but I think a play might be doable

Great at napping - 15-30 minute naps are my sweet spot. 

Feel really blessed to do my job. flowers. who doesn't love em? 

Hate indecision

Wish I was better at trivia games

Probably cook less than I think I do

Typically spend 15 minutes or less getting ready for the day (or any event really)

Love down syndrome people!

Like to wear patterned pants/shorts

Waiting for that knee surgery 11 years ago to catch up to me now that I'm 30

Takes me most of the day to finish a beverage more than 8oz (not including water)

Still think my cheeks are chubby even if they aren't - old photos never die, folks

99% of the time I know exactly what I want to eat

Worst musician in my family, but once won a piano duet competition (and played it front of a couple of thousand people)

Never had a membership to a gym

Not an accessories girl

Hate bare walls

Hope to run a second marathon someday

But not before August, because NEWS!!!!!

Our BABY is due in August.

Eric will officially be a Doddfather now. 

We are not finding out the gender

We have names picked out ready to go

Yes we are excited, yes we realize our life is about to CHANGE

I'm 30!!!!!, I'm pregnant!!!!!!!!!!! and I'm excited about 2016!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A DIY Collaboration with a Whole Bunch of Great People and Brands

Julie Dodds

Let's talk about a set of starlets - these people are not only fun, they are talented, creative, collaborative, and just plain awesome. 

I was part of a team doing a collaboration for Waverly's new line of chalk paints. Handmade Charlotte's Rachel Faucett brought her crew up to Greenville. Barb Blair of Knack Studios had a dresser ready for painting, and Paige French captured it all on camera. 

I provided tech support (aka picking up lunch, and styling the finished piece) - and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
