Always getting new things and rearranging what we have, so we can't help but keep sharing...

a bit going on around here...

Last week found me suddenly and wonderfully in New York City (more on that to come) and I am in a bit of a computer transition, hence the posting has been a wee bit light (or not at all... sorry, Monday). Hopefully, I will get it all together by this afternoon or tomorrow and be back to sharing all the fun and interesting things going on around here (did I mention New York?). One thing I wanted to quickly share was this fantastic picture one of our Willowettes brought into the store last week. It is a photo from the latest Elle magazine of Lauren Bush, the creator of the FEED bag. Oh, and check out what she's holding...

How fantastic is she? Doing good and looking good. She is up there on the list of inspiring women, I must say.
And, speaking of inspiring women, we will be back next Wednesday continuing our little feature on "Women Who Inspire." Hope you are enjoying it.

a special offer just for you

This amazing piece, that some of you may remember from the store (although it wasn't in for very long), is now off to a happy new home. However, we love it so much, that we decided we had to get another one for the Willows. So, we decided to see if any of our good friends (that's you) wanted one for themselves. We could tack it on to our order and you would save 15%! That's how much we love you. It would be a final sale as it is a special order, but the piece is pretty fantastic, no? For more information or to place an order call or email the Willows.

And don't forget, today is the last day to enter our fabulous pumpkin giveaway! Just enter a comment on the giveaway post for your chance to win three of these amazing, handmade pumpkins!
Good Luck to everyone!

women who inspire: lynne bonnell

Where do you find your inspiration?
Everything can inspire...from the diversity of colors and textures at a farmer's market to the unique architecture of the city. I am fortunate to have gifted women in my life who are sources of creative motivation, as well as my daughter, who keeps me honest.

How did you get your start? ("It all started when...")
Born in Brooklyn, I learned I loved to create at an early age. A local park had an "art" program for children, and I found a lifelong love. Knitting by 6, sewing by 8, my interests grew to include basketry, stained glass, woodworking, painting, drawing, drawing some more...

Did you take any classes, etc. for your craft?
I've taken classes for making paper, books, rugs, windows, welding, and just about every other imaginable thing.

What can you not go a single day without?
Seeing my daughter's beautiful face.

What is your tip for success?
Love what you do, perservere, and surround yourself with creative people.

Where is your favorite place in the world? Your dream place?
Autumn in New York. My dream place? An old farm house in upstate NY, along the Hudson, with a huge attic for storage and a barn for a studio. And lots of space for gardening.

Why do you love Phoenix?
For being a large city, Phoenix has a real sense of community. The interweaving of artists and their work adds an intimacy to a geographically urban setting.

Where do you like to shop?
Preferably local shops, the funkier the better. One of my recent favorite's is Michael Todd's Zinnias at Melrose.

Do you have a favorite quote to share?
"I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion." - Henry David Thoreau

What advice would you give to other women?
Listen to each other, share your ideas, and support the people around you. Women should help other women however we can.

Thank you so, so much to Lynne! Do you like the turquoise pumpkin I picked up while I was at her house? I couldn't help myself...
Don't you absolutely adore these pumpkins? Perhaps, you should stop back by here tomorrow because there's a chance we just might be having a little giveaway involving pumpkins...
