Garden & Gun Magazine's Made in the South Awards

I'm a Southerner — born and raised in Augusta, Georgia. (Yes. I know this isn't a news flash. And, yes, I've been to the Masters and the Augusta National many, many times.) I'm perfectly fine living in Chicago and maybe not ever returning to the South for a very, very, very (yes mom I had to add another very in there) long time — but I obviously still have quite a few friends and family down South. This includes a few Southern ladies that are incredibly talented designers and artists (at least one of which is one of my #bestgirls) that should definitely have the Garden & Gun Magazine Made in the South Awards on their creative radars. 

I'm looking at you Erin WhiteKristin HayesDeb HallJoni Lay and Jamie Meares.  

The contest awards the Grand Prize winner with a solid $10,000 cash prize along with magazine mentions and such and the deadline is a week from Friday, August 1. 

So get to it, my pretty, sweet, Southern talented pretties.
