still our favorite shirt

So, I’ve told you before, but we cannot seem to keep this shirt in stock.  We just reordered them and already they are going fast again.  If you haven’t been in to try one on, you better hurry…

around the shop

Well, its too hot for an outdoor picnic around here these days, so set up a lovely indoor one instead!  An indigo table cloth as your “picnic blanket” backdrop, lemonade and individual silverware holders with bamboo silverware!  The perks of a picnic, but with air conditioning!
And a few more little snippets from around the shop this last month…

back to chicago

A couple weeks ago I went back to Chicago to help my oldest son and his family settle in to their beautiful new home.  They have worked so hard on this remodel and I think they did an amazing job.  It will be a wonderful home for their family for years and years to come.  I thought I would share just a few new pictures of the back addition they did on this charming old Chicago home.

It looks amazing guys!  Thanks so much for the visit!  Can’t wait to come back soon!

a birthday dinner

My sweet daughter Emily and my dear friend Laurie threw me the most amazing little birthday dinner on the beach this year.  They hauled tables and dishes and tablecloths and everything they needed for a lovely dinner all down to the bay.  It was a simply wonderful evening surrounded by family and friends, delicious food and good (often hilarious) conversation.  I truly feel so very blessed!

halloween dinner party

My friend Laurie in California always knows how to throw together the best dinner parties.  Last week when I was in Balboa, she invited a few women over for dinner and we showed up to this.  The perfect little impromptu Halloween dinner party!  Grab a couple of these ideas for your dinner this weekend!
Happy Weekend!
