I’m still in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and plan on traveling back home tomorrow. Every time I come back, I have to see my dear friend “Mrs. Charlotte”. Mrs. Charlotte (Kidd) is an incredibly talented interior designer and antique dealer. Talented is truly an understatement. If you see something new and fresh in Traditional Home or Veranda magazine, chances are….Mrs. Charlotte’s been doing it for 10 years already.
I did design work and had a business when we lived here and was forever bouncing ideas off Mrs. Charlotte. We have very similar design styles~~I’d call it eclectic and “traditional with a twist”. In the 5 years we lived in Hattiesburg, I think I came to Mrs. Charlotte’s shoppe at least once a week. I usually had my girls with me and they always loved to look at all the “pretties”. I’m sure Mrs. Charlotte found shells and small figurines in every drawer of her store. ha ha
Not only is Mrs. Charlotte super talented as a designer, but anytime she plans a party and wedding, you can bet the decorations will be to die for. Every detail of her parties is executed with the greatest attention of detail. I always love to hear what she’s doing next. Today when I stopped in, she had an artist there sketching tuxedos in colored pencils and marker on outside of the groomsmen’s gifts. The gifts were wrapped in brown craft paper and had a black bow around the perimeter of the gift. You really had to see them! Again, this shows her attention to detail!
I’d love to share with you some pictures from her store Captain Kidd’s Treasure House. If you’re ever in Hattiesburg, MS, you have to stop in and see her.
Here’s the address: 5268 Old Highway 11, Hattiesburg, MS 39402-8379 PHONE: (601) 579-0207
Just lovely, isn’t it?
