new years 2012

We had a wonderful New Year’s Eve celebration with lots of friends and family in California again this year.  We ate, drank, played games, laughed and had a wonderful time.  It was so nice to get away to Balboa for a little while after the Christmas madness, but now its time to get this new year and these resolutions underway!  Hope everyone had a wonderful time ringing in 2012!

around the shop

Things have been busy around here as usual!  Let’s get back in the swing of things and give you a little peek around the store this January (even though it has changed again already, if you can believe it!)…

the coolest jobs in town.

Looking for a job?  Be sure to hit up the job fair at the Biltmore this Saturday for opportunities to work at the Union (opening this November).  We can’t wait for the grand opening!

happy belated 4th

I have been busy enjoying family and beautiful weather!  Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!  More pictures to come next week.  In the meantime, I think I’ll keep enjoying over here…

a wedding shower

We are back in California for the wedding of my dear friend Laurie’s daughter this weekend.  We were there a few weeks ago to throw her a shower and we all had a wonderful time.
Here are a few pics from the shower and we hope to have some great ones from the weekend!
Hope your weekend is lovely!

let the summer begin!

Looking out at the pool and the back patio, I am ready for summer to begin!
Bring over the grandkids and let’s get swimming!

mary emmerling

We were so thrilled to host Lunch with Mary Emmerling last week during our Open House.
Mary is such a dear friend to The Willows and we always have the best time when she stops by.
She was gracious enough to leave us with signed copies of her books: Art of Turquoise, Art of the Skull, Art of the Cross, Art of the Heart, and Art of the Buckle.

velvet pillows

Spent the last couple days making some velvet pillows.  They seem to be the favorite these days.  Are you loving velvet pillows for this holiday season?  Come in and check out the two shades of brown we have in the shop!  They will look great in your home from Fall and on through the winter!  You will absolutely love them!

time to add a little something new to your wardrobe?

We are always getting wonderful new items in our apparel section (most of which we can hardly keep in stock!).  So, if you were thinking about that perfect new pair of AG jeans, or a new white Michael Stars top, any of our popular designs from CP Shades, or a cute new jacket to mix up the old wardrobe, do stop in and check out all our lovely clothing.  The girls in the shop are always there to help!

a backyard wedding

Another beautiful wedding was held in my backyard last week.  This time I didn’t have to do anything, but show up and be a guest!  It was such a fun wedding and everything looked so beautiful.
Congratulations to Matt (my Godson) and Fallon!

The bride’s mother did this amazing table!  The cake went in the center, but I forgot to get another pic with the cake there… whoops.
The bride made this adorable guest book herself.  I loved all the different envelopes she found!
