Join me for Sunday Supper at Providence Ltd. featuring southern Pickled Shrimp


I am so excited that I’ve been asked to do a guest post for Providence Ltd. Interior Design’s Sunday Supper series. I’ve prepared a southern appetizer that’s popular in shrimp country – Southern Pickled Shrimp for Providence Ltd’s Sunday Supper that I know you’ll enjoy. Click here. Or printable recipe here.

Mona and “Sister” (real name Talena, but she’s affectionally referred to as “Sister”) are a sister team in their design firm. I’ve been following their blog Providence Ltd. for quite a while now and I can attest to their skills and very classy taste. Meakin and I counted the other day that during our marriage we’ve remodeled eleven houses and built two. Remodeling is one of our passions and we even thought of going into the business until the oil industry in Texas had one of its many crashes early in our marriage. How I wish we had known designers such as Mona and Sister during these projects. They certainly would have helped guarantee our success.


Just because we all love food on My Carolina Kitchen and that’s what we talk about, it doesn’t mean we don’t care about how our kitchens function or how our dining rooms are designed. Of course we care – there’s more to life than just food, right? Right.

Here’s a beautiful example of one of Mona & Sister’s design projects featured in At Home in Arkansas. Just look at all of the lovely stone and brick and beamed ceilings in this kitchen. My mind is whirling thinking of what delicious dishes that I could whip up here. Have a seat on one of the stools and we’ll talk recipes.

This is the formal dining room in the same home. I am crazy about lanterns and this iron chandelier that the sisters found and had re-wired is a beautiful example. Mirrors have found their way into my decorating scheme too lately. Imagine the wonderful dinner parties that must take place in this lovely dining room.

One of my very favorite things to add to a house or create when the space is available is a butler’s pantry. Actually we have a small butler’s pantry in both of our current homes. It’s a wonderful place to store your good china, crystal, and silver, or to use as a bar area to get the drink-making out of the kitchen. This lovely example is also one of the features in the house above.

Now, let’s eat. Please join me at Sunday Supper at Providence Ltd. Click here. While you’re there, grab a pickled shrimp or two before they’re all gone and cruise around their blog and enjoy these talented ladies’ fabulous design portfolio. See you there.

  19. I can't believe you remodeled 11 houses and built two, I haven't done one, but I would imagine that it's stressful. I admire your taste, these are beautiful kitchens and dining areas. I wish I had such an eye.

  23. Congratulations on the guest post invite and your shrimp dish looks awesome as always. I'd rather have my teeth drilled without novicane than remodel a place I'm living in (eg: our kitchen a few years ago), so if we do more perhaps we can trade houses while you remodel ours.

  34. This is a fabulous kitchen design! My city sized kitchen is rather small. so I'm always in awe of kitchens with lots of cabinet and counter space.

    Your pickled shrimp looks equisite, Sam! I could live on shrimp prepared this way.

  36. I love shrimp and being able to buy them locally harvested less than a mile from my home is a real treat.

    What talented sisters, and I am crazy for that dining room with the skirted benches rather than chairs!
