2020 Year in Review!


 2020! What a crazy year it has been for so many people! With all the difficult things that happened this year, we want to bring you some joy and highlight some of our best moments of the last 12 months. I love doing this every year and getting to look back on some of the great experiences. I hope you enjoy!


In January, I was able to meet one of my favorite influencers-Liz Marie Galvan at the January market. 


In February, Shane took me to Nashville and I was able to meet Kim from City Farmhouse on Instagram! I got a signed copy of her new book! 

I also got a little crazy in February and painted my dining room floors while Shane was out of town! 


In March, we hosted our first ever brunch event in our Pin It Co. Cafe and called it "Brunch with Bonnie" named after my Maw Maw. Even though our cafe is no longer serving, we still enjoyed this event so much and so did all of you! 


In April we all know that things got twisted, but you guys showed up and showed out with ordering! A few of us still came in to work to make sure you got all of your Pin It Co. goodies! We hit a shipping record with only two people! 


In May we revealed some exciting news with you all! This was the month that we announced that our storefront was moving to Carrollton, Ga! 


In June we got to meet a Pin It Co. super fan! Our friend Denise visited us all the way from Arizona! Even though our new storefront wasn't open yet, we still gave her and her family the Pin It Co. experience! 


In July, we rescued another "fur"ever pet! On one of mine and Rex's evening "after Live sale" walks we found a kitten under the connivence store dumpster whining and wanting a new home! We took him in and he now lives happily with the rest of the Pin It Co. pets! 


At the beginning of August, we decided to host a Warehouse event since our new storefront had not yet opened. I got to meet so many of our amazing customers! These ladies were from Newnan, Ga! 

One of the most exciting things that happened this year would have to be opening our brand new storefront in Carrollton, Ga at the end of August! I have had my eye on Carrollton for quite some time and I could not be happier for the blessings that have come from this new venture!

As if opening a new storefront wasn't enough, we decided to head to one of my absolute favorite events: Vintage Pickin'--I got to take along some of my employees and we had a blast finding some unique, vintage items! If you haven't been to one of these events hosted by my girl April, you should definitely check it out! 


In September, my sweet Mama retired from the U.S. Postal Service after many years! She originally thought that she could kick back and relax, however, now she works for me! 


In October, my amazing team surprised me for Boss's Day and I could not be more thankful to work with such an awesome group of people! 

 Two rescue pets in one year, say what?! In all seriousness, I indeed rescued another kitten and added another pet to the Pin It Co. family. Just call me the crazy cat lady! :) 


In November, we launched another Christmas open house for you all! In true Ally fashion, I decided to pull an all-nighter and work in to the morning of the open house event. I truly am a perfectionist when it comes to my vision of how I want the store to look, even more so at Christmas time! 

Also in November, I decided to go to Vintage Pickin' for a second time, but this time it was for their Christmas event! We had a blast and even got to experience some snow! 

Black Friday is always a big event for us in November and this year was no different! I came up with the crazy idea to splatter paint the wall, the floor, and myself to hype up this event! As you can tell, I had so much fun with this! 

If Black Friday wasn't already crazy enough, my husband Shane decided to surprise me with an anniversary trip to Colorado. I had an amazing time and it turned out to be the breakaway I needed for this crazy time of year! Shoutout to my team for holding down the fort while allowing me to enjoy some time away! 


In December, we took a couple's trip with a group of my friends to the mountains. We had a blast together and enjoyed so many fun experiences! 

Overall, even though this was a crazy, rollercoaster year I still had so many enjoyable moments and experiences. I hope that you enjoyed this walk down memory lane with me and looking back on all the fun we had this year! 

We Opened a New Storefront!!

We opened a new storefront!! After closing our Bowdon storefront in March, announcing that we would be moving to Carrollton in May, we finally celebrated the grand opening of our brand new space with a weekend long event on August 21st and August 22nd! It was a phenomenal weekend celebrating this beautiful, new space and I could not be more proud of how everything came together!

I wanted to come on my blog and share some photos of this new storefront so that all of you who aren't local can see it in all of its beauty! You can just call this a virtual photo tour! So, come on in and stay awhile!

When you first walk in the door, this is the first space you see:

This is one of our many living room spaces in the storefront! I think that this space being at the very front is perfect because it captures my goal with this storefront-- to create a space where you might want to waste a little time! It feels less retail and cold and more inviting and inspiring!

To the right, you will find our Pin it Co. Candle Bar!

Here, you can sniff and shop all of our signature hand-poured candles in a variety of custom scents and vessels! There is truly something for everyone!

To the left, we have our potting shed! Need a vase, greenery, or florals? You can find it here! The selection is BIG and the quality of these greens is HIGH! If you have any of our Pin it Co. greenery, you just know how good it is! This new storefront is seriously no exception!

Right behind the mantle of our first living room display, you will find another!

This is our grey living room! We have a three seater sofa and a love seat to match! Our furniture line in the storefront is seriously amazing! Great pieces at wonderful prices! This is another great place for your husband or kids to hang out while you shop!

On the right of that space, is our mudroom! Fun fact: This is the very first display that I styled when we started styling out spaces in the storefront! I am still just as in love with it as I was then.

To the left of the grey living room, you will find one of the most fun and exciting parts of our new storefront! You guys have been hyped about this every since we announced it. Seriously-- we were getting several calls per week about this paint!

This is our Fusion Paint section! We have (almost-- the rest is coming soon) the entire line of Fusion Paint products! Beautiful colors, preps and finishes, helpful booklets, and a workshop table! However-- the best part about Fusion Mineral Paint is that it doesn't require hardly any prep or finish. It is an easy, one and done paint for your DIY projects!

In front of the grey living room, is this sweet little table of goodies!

Here we have one of our 5 new styles of t-shirts, along with our line of cards, and other little trinkets! This shirt is probably one of my favorites of the new designs-- so I love that it is highlighted here!

I just HAVE to show you our beautiful checkout counter! Southern Sunshine Shop cut this beautiful metal sign for us and we painted it with some of our metallic Fusion Paint! This is where you will checkout with all of your lovely finds!

The two sections next to our checkout counter are full of more lovely goodies!

The rest of our t-shirt designs are in this lovely bookcase and we are obsessed with each one of them! We have one that says "Indoorsy", a fun "Faux Plant Lady" design, one with Coco and Phoebe's face drawn by Holly's Hues in Florida (check her out on Facebook- she is SO talented), and the classic Pin it logo!

In front of this section, we also have this table of some sweet little gift-able items!

Here you can find anything from bath bombs, makeup bags, key chains, jewelry, car coasters and more! I seriously love all the cute finds! Everything on this table makes a great birthday, Christmas, or "thinking of you" gift. I am obsessed with the fun pop of color the bath bomb filled bathtub provides!

On the other side of the store from this display, is another living room!

This living room was the second space we styled in the new storefront, and it is still a favorite of mine! I am also so happy to finally be able to offer a sectional as part of our furniture line! In the past, when I have styled homes with local realtors, I have almost always used a sectional. And y'all have ALWAYS asked if we sold any. Now-- we finally do! This off-white section really makes a statement in this living room and I seriously want it in my house. Also, that clock. Enough said.

In front of that section, we have our dining room!

This dining room is styled out for everyday decor and the bright pops of green and neutrals are giving me all the feels. I'm a BIG fan! The chandelier hanging over this table (which has now been sold since it was priced at an INCREDIBLE deal) is just one of our many light fixtures available in store! Isn't it just dreamy?

Behind the dining room table, you can find these shelves and cabinets with all of the items we used to style it out! That is one thing I love about this storefront: whenever you see a styled space, you can find the items used to create it super close by, so you can create the same look without a second thought!

We couldn't have a dining room and not have a kitchen, so right to the left in the middle section of the storefront is this BEAUTIFUL, custom-built kitchen island and cabinets with more items for the kitchen than you could ever imagine!

Anything you might want in your kitchen, you can find here! You can't see all of it in the photo, but the vintage "Produce" sign above the cabinets is a perfect piece to add some serious character into your space!

If you were a regular in our Bowdon storefront, you may recognize these LARGE cabinets! We moved these bad boys over and painted them with a few coats of white paint and they seriously transformed! They add so much light to the space!

We also added these black lights above them that really make a big difference in brightening the space as well!

These wrap around the back left and very back wall of our storefront! In one of the shelves on each vertical set, we have a different styled out vignette. In the rest of the shelves above and below that styled out look, we have the items (and more) that we used to create the look!

You can find a mantle look like this one...

A sweet buffalo plaid and yellow kitchen...

A staple laundry room...

A cozy living room, and more!

On our back wall, we have quite a few shelves full of bedding!

I'm talking pillows, duvet covers, shams, bed skirts, quilts, throws, and more! This section really makes me want to cozy up and nap!

Speaking of bedding...

Our styled out bed display includes an amazing bed frame that is part of our furniture line as well! How dreamy is this space! It is the perfect area to see what some of our bedding looks like styled out with other home decor to create a sweet bedroom like this one!

And of course, would it even be Pin it Co. without a plethora of dough bowls, sugar molds, and fillers for both?

I think not! I love this section of the store (that is right in front of our back wall and right behind our kitchen) that reminds me that sometimes the classic things in life are the best. Our farmhouse staples are part of our roots and they are still so popular today! You can find anything your heart desires to fill a dough bowl and sugar mold in these cabinets and baskets.

And you can find a variety of styles of sugar molds and dough bowls to style in the display right next to it! You will not be disappointed!

I cannot believe we've already reached the end of our little virtual store tour! Thanks for coming along and hanging around with me! I look forward to seeing you soon at 1305 South Park Street Carrollton, GA 30117!

We are open Monday-Saturday from 9-8! Come on out and meet your new favorite place to get in some much needed retail therapy and waste a little time!

Xoxo, Ally

2020 Spring Favorites

So many of you have been asking questions on my Live Videos about my favorite things-- outside of home decor! I thought I would come on over here to the blog to share them all with you!

These are some of my favorite things that I've been loving this Spring! Some are long time loves of mine and some are brand new to me, but either way, these are things I have been loving this season!

Whenever Springtime comes back around, I always like to start getting my tan back on! I don't like to lie in a tanning bed, and I don't have a ton of time to tan outside, so self-tanner is my best friend! Loving Tan is definitely the BEST self-tanner I have found so far! I use the 2 HR Express because it works so quickly!

Warmer weather coming back around means it's time to pull out my Rainbow Sandals and wear them all day, every day! I shop small whenever I can, and I got a new pair of my favorite sandals from the Squire Shop in Carrollton this year! They have an option to order online as well!

Spring here at Pin it Co. brings a lot of crazy things going on, and lately, we have been busier than ever! I need ALL the caffeine I can get and this gum has been my go-to for a while! NueroGum is a caffeine gum and gives you a good bit of energy without having to drink coffee! I like that NeuroGum is Aspartame-free and keeps me focused!

Even in the Spring, I love a good jean jacket! On the days when it's just a little bit chilly, this jean jacket from Madewell comes in super handy! I keep it on hand for whenever I might need to throw it on!

Speaking of jackets, my olive utility jacket has been a long-time staple! It's another jacket than I can throw on whenever it gets a little chilly in the Spring! The exact Madewell jacket I have is currently sold out, but this similar style from Madwell is almost identical!

Continuing the trend of things I can just throw on when those Spring mornings are a bit cold, this Target cardigan is a favorite of mine! I usually keep it nearby here at the warehouse so whenever a cool breeze sneaks it, I have it ready! The cream color goes with everything!

Now onto some of my favorite makeup products! If you're using self-tanner, you always want to add bronzer to your face! It helps tan and add a glow to your face! My favorite 
bronzer is the Bronze Goddess from Estee Lauder!

I like a fairly light weight foundation, especially as the weather starts to warm up! This Neutrogena Hydro Boost Foundation is my go-to!

The Loreal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara is a tried and true favorite for me! Seriously-- the BEST! It's a dupe for a popular high-end mascara, and in my opinion, honestly works better! 

I've been using this lipstick for the longest time! It's the Colour Riche line from Loreal in Bold Mauve! The lip gloss is a newer addition to my collection, but I love it! It's the Kylie Jenner gloss in Koko K!

If you're looking for a good and peachy highlighter for this time of year, Becca's Champagne Pop is such a great choice! I love the peach tones that are perfect for Spring and Summer!

Spring is the time for natural and beachy hair, and my Bed Head waver helps me get that look! It takes just a few minutes for me to do my entire head of hair with this took, and I always end up with super relaxed and fun waves!

These are just a few of my favorite things, in the Spring and year round!! I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the things I love and use constantly!
