Happy Halloween!

When witches go riding 
And black cats are seen,
The moon laughs and whispers
'Tis near Halloween

Rain Rain...

"Rain, rain, go away. Come again some other day. We want to go outside and play."
Are you getting cabin fever? We are full of new items for the season ahead...the gift giving season is right around the corner. Let us help you make it easy this year!

Nuns Cross Bracelets...Cast Angel & Saint Medallion Necklaces

 A new artist that we found from San Diego, CA creates the most beautiful and ornate jewelry...
She is inspired by Victorian, French Art Nouveau, Georgian, and Mexican design from the 1930’s-1940’s. But it is the particular element with its imperfect beauty, faded elegance, and time worn patina that begins every new design. With such a dimensional and diverse history she has landed on top as a favorite California jewelry designer...
Her sterling silver Nuns Cross Bracelet will keep you inspired throughout your day...the artist used actual antique Nun's cross pendants and recast them into this beautiful piece of art. A special and wonderful gift at $79.00 each.

Inspired by the French Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Georgian era art and design movements, each piece she designs features the imperfect beauty, faded elegance and the time worn patina she admires. One of southern California’s most sought after jewelry designers, her one of a kind pieces are avidly collected by women with their own sense of style, who are leaders in fashion, not followers. Her jewelry is classic, elegant, trendy, without ever becoming pass├ę.


We are starting to wrap Christmas gifts here at the shop we would love to wrap your gifts this year stop by to see what's new...

Warm Up Your Wardrobe

We have had more cool weather clothing arrive this week...warm up your wardrobe with soft knit and linen tops and leggings. If you have enjoyed wearing our tunic and legging sets you will love the Fall line that is in. Soft denims, purples and greys are so pretty for Fall. We are also mixing one of our favorite linen clothing lines that ties in great with the layered look.
All linen garments are made from 100% natural source linen fabric that has special washing process garment dyeing. This process creates a sophisticated look that is easy and comfortable to wear. The slight color variations or minor slubs (color shading) are characteristics of the fabric, giving this garment its natural beauty and comfort.
If you haven't tried on our tunic & legging sets you need to! So comfortable and just arrived in is more of their super cute sweaters, tummy tuck leggings (they stay up!), and other knit tops that go with the layered look. A company that is famous for their seamless basics in the softest stretchiest knits as well as their casual clothing. They actually make you look and feel skinny!
 These soft knit tops and leggings make the perfect gift for someone that has everything...



Cinnamon Cider & Pumpkin Spice Wax Melts

Just until this year have I purchased one of the wax melt lamps and hid it in a special spot...was I missing out on filling my whole house with the aroma of Fall! These wax melts are the strongest I have ever purchased and will fill your home with cinnamon cider and pumpkin spice! They are an inexpensive and quick pick me up...having company? Try these you will be back for more they are wonderful!!

A Home Ready For The Season Ahead...

We had the pleasure of working in this sunny & cheerful home this week and getting it ready for the winter season ahead. An eclectic mix of everything this customer loves! A very busy professional mother of two teenage daughters. Her home is warm, embracing & interesting and beautiful for Thanksgiving and Christmas ahead.













New Lamps and Art In...

Warm your space and home with a beautiful new lamp or large piece of wonderful art...just in is a large shipment of lamps and artwork for that special spot in your home. 














Huge Sugar Pinecones Are In...

We love Sugar Pinecones tucked in cedar on a mantle, wired to a great Fall wreath, or placing them in a centerpiece on a dining table or buffet. They are huge measuring usually between 9-18 inches long. They are the longest and largest pine cones and are wonderful to add a touch of nature to your Fall and Winter look. 
Pinus lambertiana (commonly known as the sugar pine or sugar cone pine) is the tallest and most massive pine tree, and has the longest cones of any conifer. The species name lambertiana was given by the British botanist David Douglas, who named the tree in honour of the English botanist, Aylmer Bourke Lambert. It is native to the mountains of the Pacific coast of North America, from Oregon through California to Baja California.

Maple Pumpkin Butter Dip

A great great recipe was discovered from a customer that came in to buy our tasty Pumpkin Butter. First your layer whipped cream cheese at the bottom, next your maple pumpkin butter (yes we carry it at shop), chopped roasted pecans, real bacon crumbles or bits, shredded cheese, and last chopped green onion. Serve with crackers it is wonderful! Would be a great appetizer for Thanksgiving.
