Dreams DO come true

Sometimes GOOD things finally happen.


{Thank you to my dear friend Natalie Lacy Lange for stopping by and capturing these pics on the day I first opened!}

Not to sound ungrateful that life isn’t always perfect or that there aren’t always some small blessings each and every day, even on the worst day.

       But sometimes you get to see a dream come to fruition that has been growing in your heart for years, maybe decades and then finally, finally you get closer and closer and finally it happens.

And you get to exhale and say “God did this” through the help of others who love and encourage you to not give up and that “no you aren’t crazy.”  In a million ways. He provides.  He truly DOES see the desires of our hearts. I truly believe that.  He knows us like no other.  It isn’t always a yes answer. Sometimes He says no. or later.  But sometimes it gets to be a yes.  OH HAPPY DAY!  Thank you Lord for seeing me and making me the way you did and letting me be ME in this big wide world.

This small studio isn’t full on retail for me.  It’s a pop up shop and part of my office, my working studio where I work on homes and design which is my real job ( a dream in itself I know).. It is crazy to juggle. But to finally take it another step and to just be able to finally hang out an OPEN sign for my own little space, even if its temporary, it feels so good.  So keep dreaming you dreamers, staying true to your calling and dreams does feel pretty darn good.

It is more than just a pillow and playing shop.  It’s about following dreams and taking chances and leaning in to tough time and leaning into a heavenly Father like never before!


This building is old and dusty and often leaks but look at that old brick and original beadboard ceiling..inspires me everyday. Old and layered and full of story!


And the Eugene brass pendants are just the best, I first fell in love with them when helping design the True Blue Home store in nearby Chappell Hill and they are just great lights! They are available via True Blue Home and one of the most reasonable Visual Comfort pendant lights which makes them even better! They work in so many spots and come in two sizes.


Below is a portion of my Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint waxes and Common Sense soaps (all natural so good!)

This cabinet is painted Miss Mustard Seed’s Farmhouse white paint color!~


Love this MMSP color on this chair..it is FLOW BLUE!


A close up below of my favorite book in the store..Anna Spiro’s Absolutelly Beautiful Things..she is so inspiring!

MEANS THE WORLD!

  1. Awww Holly. I am so happy for you. I left there today and thought, “wow, that’s what it looks like to see God work through someone to bring a dream to fruition.” It is just so “you” (well the “you” I’ve gotten to know via your blog/FB/instagram) It is so calming, so perfectly collected, so inspiring. All the things you are are out on display. I love it. Don’t stop dreaming big and letting those dreams play out. I love for you that this little space gets to be an outlet for you. You inspire SO many of us…I’m so glad you have this space. I can’t wait to come back, visit your store, visit YOU again. Congrats and keep going. Don’t stop doing the thing God made you for. Your boys get to see their momma living out a dream. Not perfect, but worth it! 🙂

  2. It looks lovely, and is so,richly deserved. I wish I lived closer ( Calif is a long ways away) so I could pop on over to your shop.

  6. This is so encouraging, Holly. Just to see another art and home minded soul making her way on this earth with the blessing of her savior.
    I sometimes skip through my blog reads, but usually always open yours because you have such inspiring ideas.

  7. Holly,
    I’m thrilled that all is going smoothly with your creative endeavors. You are so talented and we all benefit from your success through seeing the beauty you create and the inspiration you provide. Thank you. I’ve promised myself that I’ll make time on my next family visit to Austin to visit your shop and True Blue.

  8. Congratulations! How wonderful to have achieved a dream! I wish I loved closer so that I could come and see it in person.

  9. Holly…so inspiring to follow your story. I love, love the hanging map in the picture above. I’m sad to live in Atlanta and not be able to come by. Any possibility you would ship something to a far off fan?
