Get a Grip!

It's time to dispose of that old coach wallet you've been lugging around in your saggy satchel for months now and upgrade to one of our amazingly sleek leather Hobo International wallets or clutches. Why? Because they are all 50% off that's why!

Come shop a selection of purses, full size and compact wallets as well as business card holders and clutches!

All 50% off - limited time only!

Drop off your Stuff!

A dear friend passed along an email this morning regarding item donations that are being taken for the next couple days to be sold off at a garage sale this coming weekend (Friday the 23rd and Saturday the 24th) to benefit an upcoming fundraiser for Maggies Place, a house of hospitality for pregnant women who are alone or on the streets. If you don't know about their wonderful work saving lives and promoting the dignity of women and children, please look at www. If you are in the post-Christmas purge mode, please consider donating anything at all that can be sold for "seed money" as they ramp up to prepare for their first large scale fundraiser on April 17 at City North.

If you have anything you'd like to give to the garage sales, or if you have any questions regarding the upcoming fundraiser or the organization, please contact

Good Morning!

Have you ever gotten out of bed late in the morning when the blinds are still all closed and the sunlight is just streaming through? You know how it just dances on the furniture illuminating the beauty of your home?

I hope you all have a beautiful morning.

How very French of you!

We know that many of you love our short "vin" wine glasses and decanters (we know because we can't keep them in stock!) so we're excited to debut our new "madame" and "monsieur" glasses! What a great Valentine's day, wedding or anniversary gift for a couple! They are even fun if you want to have all "madame" for drinks with the girls! We have gold crown glasses and decanters to mix in your collection as well. These truly are the crème de la crème!Also we must tell you that we still have this amazing sofa on sale for 30% off! It is in perfect condition, and is in the store for you to come check out! We have delivery services available for next day delivery. Neutral pillows only included.

Be My Valentine

We think Valentines Day is the perfect holiday to follow Christmas and the New Year.

Everyone is longing for the warmth of spring and the arrival of flowers, pastels and sunshine.

The color pink does something to bring back the child in us by reminding us to enjoy the simpler things in life like roses, chocolates and even those silly little Valentine's Day cards.

Here is our first taste of Valentines Day goodies!

Fairies holding cotton candy ice cream cones are sweet little treats to give to friends while bundles of Hydrangeas are always welcome!

Candlelight sets a romantic mood while our variety of pitchers make the perfect vases for friendly flowers!

Give the gift of fresh lavender to those you love. We have scented drawer liners and hanger sachets as well as luxury lavender for the bath! We also have a variety of scented soaps in sweet heart shapes.

Gone from the pages....

We found out some sad news today... The company that owns Country Home magazine will be shutting the magazine and the website down for good. The March issue will be its last so buy up the magazines while you can! You can read more about the article here.

I think this is a good reminder for all of us to support what we love especially in a shaky economy. Shop at and support your local businesses - even if it might be easier today to run to the megamarts, think of what a sad world it would become if on every corner all we saw were Costcos and Walmarts! I can tell you we'd have some pretty generic homes and lives!

In happier news, one of our vendors is having a chair sale! 10% any of the dining chairs shown below. These chairs are all Alder wood and come in a variety of finishes. Get your order in today!

Sharing the Spotlight

While we'd like to pretend that every great idea we ever come up with just comes to us in our sleep - and some do for Bev! - we have to admit that we find inspiration for the store from all over. We are constantly bombarding our desks with magazines, books and any other tidbit or antique we may find useful in creating a story for the store. Nowadays with the internet, it's amazing the wealth of inspiration that is at our fingertips. Even other blogs become inspiring - and we hope you read our favorites listed at the bottom of our page!

Lisa just found a new blog she loves - and amazingly enough, one of our dishware lines was featured in her January 8 post! Check out the beautiful picture of Christopher Jagmin's plates on the wall!

Remember, we still have our White Sale going on! Come get great bedding 50% off only through tomorrow! Here are some gorgeous inspirational ideas to get you in the mood for a bedroom makeover!

Happy Sunday!

I hope you are all having a lazy, relaxing Sunday. It is one of those chilly, rainy days that make you want to stay in bed just a little longer. Today is a great day for inside projects! Redecorate a bedroom, organize your closet, or get those holiday photos in a scrapbook.

See you tomorrow for the White Sale!
