Modern South Special Offer

18 Aug

You will notice that we have a new sponsor, Modern South   Owner/designer Cory McBee has developed some amazing prints and invitations with mid-century design to fit any household.  I am in love with these.  In her own words…

What was I thinking?

My shop began one crazy afternoon in May when I thought to myself I can do this and had way to much time on my hands (yeah right, lol.) I began the process first by creating a variety of invitations to add to the shop. I continued that like a mad woman for about a week or two and then began to add my poster designs. My invitations come from my love and desire to make a party great and my poster designs come from my non-stop creativity. Recently, I decided to sell my posters at a local shop here in Summerville and will let you know how that goes.

This is a venture I have always wanted to take and I hope that you love the designs as much as I love creating them. I am a small town southern girl with a passion for creativity and a love of all things art and design.

Some of my favorites are:

Mid Century Modern Tree in Soft Tones

Mid Century Owl Print - Soft Tones

Mid Century Three Bird Print, Fall Tones

Modern Geometric Pattern Print

Shy of Perfect Giveaway

6 May

Jewelry.  Something I love as much as I love mid-century design.  And I love these pieces below by Sara Shaheen, owner of the Etsy store Shy of Perfect.  And not only do I like her style, I like her prices!  Holy cow.  Most of it has a very vintage vibe and I can totally imagine Joan or Megan wearing some of these.  About Sara from the lady herself:

I began making jewelry because I needed a new hobby that I could do once I had children.  Soon, I had so much jewelry that it only made sense to start selling some of it.  Jewelry gives me a sense of calm when the rest of my life seems dripping with chaos.  I try to specialize in simple, modern designs using silver and gold alternatives in order to keep my prices reasonable.

I love her honesty because we all know what it’s like to work, have kids and a life ‘dripping with chaos’.  Lovely choice of words.

So here’s how it works, friends.  Comment on the blog or on the MCML facebook page which piece is your favorite and you are entered to win $75 worth of jewelry of your choice from Shy of Perfect’s Etsy shop.  At those prices, you will have a practically full jewelry box.  Enter by May 12.  Winner will be announced on the blog May 13.  That’s right.  Mother’s Day.  A little bauble for you or your mom.

As if that weren’t enough, if you aren’t the lucky winner, Shy of Perfect is offering 15% off for MCML readers.  Use this code to get your discount, MODERNLOVE15 for 15% off a total purchase, which makes these lovely pieces practically free.
