I thought I'd tell you about a little promotion we are doing. I just added this adorable jewelry by Renee Courtney to my shop. This week if you buy any jewelry from my shop you will get a $10 gift card. (that includes the women's jewelry)
I am loving the sunshine we have seen lately. Every spring I wish I could do nothing but work in the garden. The reality is I spend very little time gardening, which is reflected in how it looks. Year after year my peonies delight me by bursting through my clay filled soil and producing the most beautiful flowers.
These beautiful watercolors are by Jacqueline Gnott and they rival the real thing.
What flowers do you love to have in your garden?
I am always on the look out for beautiful storage. When I saw these over at A Room Somewhere my heart skipped a beat. Stackable, cheap, customizable and affordable storage...my life may never be the same!
Now I really want to turn my yukky basement laundry room into gem. I can see it now... a bin for everyone with their names beautifully painted to match my almost all white clean room.
Six months ago our home was photographed for Country Living. And now it is on the news stands. I am hopeful that it brings some extra awareness for Kayce Hughes/Pears and Bears. (It seems to be doing wonders for my 16 year olds facebook. I guess those 16 year old girl readers of Country Living thing he is pretty cute).
A huge thanks to writer Beth Ann Fennelly, photographer Bjorn Wallander, stylist Natasha Louise King and every one at Country Living for making me look a little better than I really am.
See if you can guess what items were added from the stylist.
Its hard not to love someone with 7 kinds...right? I remember falling in love with Robert and Cortney Novogratz years ago when they were in some magazine. I was reminded of them the other day when talking with Beth Ann Fennelly who was had written about them and was doing an article on me. I googled them and was thrilled to see that they are going to do a reality TV show for Bravo. I think I might have to start watching TV. Until then I want to get their book Down Town Chic.
The only sad thing about being in the middle of the Bahamas next week is knowing that Liberty is hitting target stores. It will probably be gone by the time I come back. I vividly remember Christmas morning when I was about 10. Santa brought me 4 beautiful gifts from Liberty. I still use the jewelry bag. If target is empty when I return I can console myself by going to Liberty Merci...not target prices but still fabulous.
One of the highlights of the weekend was the 2 hours my husband and I spent shooting the women's line. We usually fight over the camera but this time I only took a few of the pics. Our beautiful model was a trooper as we zoomed through the arm load of outfits. I'll show you more later but this is one of my favorites.
I am in love with this paper doll set made by Alli at one pearl button. She printed out pages of Betsy Mc Call paper dolls and put them on magnetic paper. My girls would love them. Click on the link to see how she did it.
If you are feeling a little less crafty we have a cute set in Kayce's shop for $16. It would make a sweet addition to an Easter basket.
This beautiful painting by Carol Marine is dedicated to all of my white friends. No I am not talking about the color of your skin but the color of your homes. I want to be white but every time I try beautiful colors keep flooding in. So I love to visit and enjoy your homes. One of you needs to snatch up this beautiful painting for $100.
After school snack is one event that none of my children miss. Some days it is healthy, most days it is not. Some days it is homemade, most days it is not. But now every day it can be beautiful! I just got these small melamine "appetizer" plates from target for 99 cents each. Paired with our cherry napkins every afternoon will be off to a good start.
