July WK Care Packages

July 6, 2022

The Watson Kennedy July Care Packages are assembled, just waiting to fly away to lucky recipients. We now have over 70 added to the assortment, but the new ones each month always get me extra excited. It is quite fun putting them together, thinking how folks will react when they open them up. Each one tells a bit of a story. Perfect for just about any occasion, or no occasion at all. A ‘just because’ my favorite reason. Gift giving is so personal, to receive a parcel out of the blue resonates with me as the meaning can have many layers. We can also create custom care packages for you too. 

A Limited Palette

July 5, 2022

Our WestWard attire has a very limited Americana palette. With a bit of khaki thrown in. Plus a good amount of plaid to make it a little fun! It makes it super easy to dress for the Fourth of July. Insert large smile. An old English rack holds lots at the ready, along with old locker baskets for things to stack. A set of vintage gym lockers (that double as our bedside table tops) flank the bed so we each have pull-out drawers too. The limited storage means we wear every single thing we have there. A limited palette and minimal storage can actually be a welcome situation, as it makes dressing in the morning as simple as 1, 2, 3.

Happy 4th of July

July 4, 2022

Cheers to a happy & safe 4th of July!

Our Pike Place Market shop will be open today from 11 to 5.

A Sea Of Peonies

July 1, 2022

This happens to me each year. I think the peonies are finished for the season and then I do a walk through the Market. Oh how I love to be wrong when it comes to peony season being complete! The beauties are still hanging on. They got dotted around the apartment in single stem vases, to spread the flower love around. My personal favorite way to enjoy them. You really get to enjoy their singular exquisiteness. Everyone have a lovely first weekend in July. X, T

New Pub Date August 23rd

June 30, 2022

Supply chain issues has hit just about every facet of our lives these past few years, and publishing is absolutely one of them. Books can sit on shipping containers for weeks before docking, along with a host of other possible delays in delivery. The list of reasons can be long. But I am most happy to report, that a new publication date just a few weeks delayed has been finalized. I type that with my fingers crossed. Yes, I look quite funny typing with my fingers crossed! The new date is Tuesday the 23rd of August. It had been the 9th. So if you have pre-ordered books from Watson Kennedy or Amazon or any other fabulous place, that is when it will arrive to you. As a side note, our big book party at our First & Spring shop will be that night. Lots more details on that coming next month but wanted to get that event swirling around your head as I would LOVE for as many of you to attend, if possible. The book party for Style & Simplicity is a night I will never forget. The line went out the door and down the street with folks waiting to get their books signed. It truly was a magical eve and a memory I will always cherish.

We hope to create another lasting memory of one heck of a book signing party on the 23rd of August for Ted Kennedy Watson’s Guide To Stylish Entertaining. X, TKW
