I need a vacation!

We are headed to a friends lake house for the 4th of July and I have to tell you- I am looking forward to some R+R with my honey and some friends! I love this tote for everyone who is headed to the beach this summer- isn't it just perfect? Kate Spade is having an awesome little sale- I got a great new Black and White striped bag for my birthday!

Market is Over!

{New Agendas from Lifeguard Press in my favorite patterns}

Market is over- woohoo! Don't get me wrong I love market- all my stores, good energy, people buying- it is awesome but by day 7 I am beat. Our top line in the showroom this market was Lifeguard Press- not surprising since it has been SO SO SO hot this spring! It is a must have for all stores. And if you think Lilly Pulitzer is only for spring and summer- think again! Everyone was buying deep into it for fall too! The Jonathan Adler release was, in my opinion, the BEST release yet! Awesome new patterns- I can't wait to get my hands on the purple flame stitch iphone cover and matching earbuds!! Also, debuting new from Lifeguard Press, Dylan's Candy Bar Stationery and Gift! It is as cute and fun as you can expect from the popular Queen of Candy and brings in a great new price point and appeals to a completely different age group! I loved the Lollipop laterns and the scented iphone covers!

29th Street Designs

We have a VERY cute new stationery line to show at The Dallas Market next week and lucky for me they are from Dallas! I love the simplistic designs and the loads of glitter!! The cocktails and the holiday are my favorite! 29th Street Designs is going to be a big hit!

Mabry Update

Just got word from they vet that she has never seen a dog with hypothyroid this bad! Hooray (strange that this is good news!) So Mabry will be on thyroid medicine for the rest of his life but the vet said this will not effect the length of his life. We are not totally in the clear yet on the kidneys- they will be re checked in 2 months once the thyroid meds have had enough time to get stable. Thanks for thinking about us today!

Sick Pup

My puppy dog is a sick man! I received a call from the vet today with the results of some blood work from last week and she thinks he may be in the beginning stages of Kidney failure. His thyroid is also extremely low and they are running more tests on that tomorrow. Please keep us in your thoughts and pray that it is just a hypothyroid and not kidney failure.

Divorce Party

I just read on that Jack White and Karen Elson are getting divorced after being married for 6 years- and they are celebrating! They are throwing a party in Nashville tonight to celebrate 6 years of memories and their up coming divorce. I think it is extremely strange but I am so intrigued. They have 2 children together and I applaud them in staying committed to a friendship but I don't think a divorce is worth celebrating- it should be mourned. I guess all I can say is that at least the invitation is cute!

Sloane Ranger

Sloane Ranger- (def.) The term Sloane Ranger (often shortened to Sloane or less frequently Sloanie) refers to a stereotype in the UK of young, upper class or upper-middle-class women or men who share distinctive and common lifestyle traits. (

I am so so excited to announce that I am the new rep for Sloane Ranger- a brand new line from the creators of Room it Up! This line has pizzazz and has a great updated canvas tote, duffle, wallets, and accessories that are all lined with the definition of "sloane ranger". I am torn between the gray floral and the horses as my favorite patterns. This line is going to be HUGE for 4thQ!!!

Gold and Black

San Lori Holiday has arrived and it has kept me super busy this week (explains the lack of posts!) I will share more closer to market and Christmas but I love the gold and black series that they released- great for the fall but also works for right now. The prices on San Lori can't be beat!
