Flower Friday Peonies

May 22, 2020

Our friend Sharlet dropped off a stunning arrangement last week that was peony laden as a gift to us. She is one of the floral artists who had created a stunning Mother’s Day bouquet that we sold at WK. She knows how I swoon over peony so this indeed was a welcome treat. As things started to wane later in the week I started pulling out individual peony from the group to give them their last final cut, quite short, to get every ounce of glorious life from them. Then I dotted the blooms singly around the apartment. I am looking at one right now on my bedside table that is making me crazy happy. The portrait of Bailey that was a gift years ago looking over one of the stems in the living room.

Personalized Care Packages

May 21, 2020

Our ‘Care Packages’ have been such a hit these last few months. It has been such fun for me walking around the shop selecting items for a creative gift to send to loved ones around the country. We have many options on our website, but keep in mind, a personalized version is but a call away. I have had the most awesome conversations with folks while we chat away about all sorts of topics, all the while pulling goods for the family or friends who will receive said fab parcel. Just give me a call/text at 206.617.9678. I am more than happy to help put something awesome together for you. We include a handwritten note with whatever verbiage you would like, then ship it right out. One or many, we are here to help with your gift giving needs. X, T

A Beach-y Blue Shop Vignette

May 20, 2020

It has been several months since I did any display work in the shops. I walked by a table yesterday and the mood struck. I can’t tell you how GOOD it felt to re-do this vignette! It felt like light at the end of the tunnel. While we are still a ways from opening to customers in the shops each day, this was so good for my soul. As Summmmaaaaa approaches, this table a nod to the beach-y blues of the upcoming season. A mix of vintage & new. Old book pages creating the tablecloth. Only thing missing are the fresh oysters for the plate…

My Favorite Things Today

May 19, 2020

It has been a little over two months since we last had customers in the shops, but we have been adding lots to our website each week, I have been doing FaceTime appointments with folks, and we have been doing non-contact curbside pickups by customers here in Seattle. So keeping our mix fresh has still been a big goal on my list. Here are a My Favorite Thing Today.

Ted’s Tip No. 252

May 18, 2020

Light candles, even for an early morning breakfast. It instantly bumps up the special quotient, with the strike of a match.
