My dear friend, Whitney Eller, was the chairperson for this year’s annual Historic Charleston Foundation Luncheon & Garden Gathering which kicks off the foundation’s annual Antique Show Weekend. I signed ExVoto up as a sponsor knowing it would, if nothing else, give me an excuse to visit my friend and this city I adore. Charleston, […]

Renovations::Part 4

Renovations::Part 4

We moved in to the house last weekend!  The task of combining our house in Montgomery and our rental house here in Birmingham into one household is an ongoing process of boxes and more boxes.  The movers were great, but sometimes the hardest part is trying to decide what to do with all that stuff!  […]

Winter Storm Leon or, How to Survive “a little dusting”

This past Monday evening, my daughter and I were headed from Birmingham to Montgomery for a Blue Man Group concert.  My mother warned me the weather in Montgomery would get nasty Tuesday and we should leave early if we spent the night.  I decided we would come back after the concert rather than get stuck […]

Renovations::Part 2

The “almost-but-not-yet-stage”. We are getting closer! Here are some snapshots of where we are now in the process. Foyer: new light, wallpaper down, new paint. You can see the dining room in this photo as well and notice the wood flooring for the kitchen stacked and acclimating before installation.  I liked the lantern fixture that […]

Indigo

Indigo

I’m sort of in love with indigo anything right now and from the looks of the latest cover of  Pottery Barn, ModCloth, etc, etc,  I’m not alone. I recently purchased some indigo pillows made from antique rug fragments from Paige Albright Orientals in Birmingham, AL for the house we are renovating.  Here they are: I […]

The Woodward Shield

The Woodward Shield

It is no secret that we at ExVoto have big love for shields. Shields represent protection and strength. Shields represent a strong resolve. I especially love a shield with lines similar to our logo (which is now trademarked! Yay!). The organic curve of the top edge is a beautiful counterpart to the sharp point at […]

New Year::New Everything!
