Pearl Bell Homewares "Couture"

There is a whole new line of plates that I have created from "Slab to Fab". They are hand made, hand painted and take the collection to a whole other level. Not too late to get a Valentines Gift for a loved one..XOXO

Saturday Morning

The snow is slowly melting away, Maria Callas is playing and the rest of the house still sleeps. I just spent my morning baking and polishing my silver. There is something so European about a bit of silver on the breakfast table, a cup of french press coffee and the taste of warm homemade baked goods. I love weekends!~

Winter Wonderland

Snowed all day long...Built snowmen... Downloaded new music.....drank wine and Listened to all my new music....made dinner...the streets are so quiet....my house is full of joy. Good night.


Lately I have found myself decorating with all whites and sea shells.. My mom found this fabulous lamp at an estate sale and gave it me for Xmas... I love the acrylic stand..something about the modern with the natural...so yummy!!! Oh and the white ceramic animals got to love!

My Bookshelf!

I am constantly rearranging things in my home, there is a bookcase that I sit in front of a lot, so I am always thinking of the different things that I want to see there at different times of the day, week or year.... You will probably see this bookcase again, notice the differences. I know its silly, but this is just how I am.

I love Terrariums!!!

I have recently fallen in love with the idea of Terrariums. With the weather outside making me miss my garden this is the perfect way for me to bring the outside in. The smell inside each time you water reminds you of the smell of your garden after a rainstorm. You can really make one with any glass vessel and a clay bottom or pot... its your personal "fairyland"

"Mother of Pearl" Line

My mother has always had a knack for making tables warm and inviting. This year she has been working on her line of hand knit raffia bottle and candle cozies. Its the perfect way to warm up any table. The pieces are totally natural and hand made. You can make an order today at: annettehoyerbell@gmail.com. I love them in the winter, but also think they are great in the summer at any beach house.
