around the shop

We’ve got lots of new treasures all over the store right now.  From apparel to summery red, white and blue prizes to our favorite everyday pieces.  Here’s a little tease of all the goodness in the store at the moment…

Can’t wait to see you this summer!

and the baby is…

Last week when we all came into the store Jen had brought these cupcakes for all of us with this fun little  message…
Inside the cupcakes were pink, so…

It’s a girl!
Jen and Vance, we are all so excited for you!
We had to give her a first little something pink, so we made this little sailboat…
And we made a bunch more as we are looking forward to summer!
Come in and see them for yourself!

happy halloween!

Happy Halloween!  We had some Tangled characters like Flynn Rider, we had one very muscular Hulk and even Kathy Seldon from Singing in the Rain!  It was a great Halloween and all the kids seemed to enjoy themselves!  Off to California now…  see you next week!

I found this old suitcase at a second hand store and decided it was literally made for me, since it had previously belonged to a Beverly in Phoenix.  So, now it is home again with another Beverly…

So, what do you think of our newest additions?

valentine’s day and lots of family

We had all our family from Chicago in town for Presidents’ day weekend, so we had quite the Valentine’s day celebration with all 18 grandkids (and #19 on the way!).  I did some shopping at Union Biltmore and bought the adults the Queen Creek Olive Mill almond sparkling wine!  So delicious!  Everyone should try it!  And I got all the little grandkids Smeeks gift cards to go shopping and pick out some goodies for themselves.  (Big kids got LGO gift cards!).  Christine made delicious cookies and I picked up some mini bundt cakes to celebrate a couple birthdays we had missed from the week before.  It is so nice to be surrounded by family!
That’s a whole lot of valentine bags lined up…
Fun with mustaches from Smeeks!
Happy day to you all!

something for everyone…

All sorts of great new looks in the Willows’ apparel boutique these days!
