Comfort in Home

Honored, once again, to be named one of Seattle Magazine’s ‘Favorite Home Shops’ in the current issue out now on newsstands. We take great pride in making the shops a respite for our customers to feel inspired, cared for and enveloped in goodness. I so often hear how many folks just come to the shops to de-stress from a hectic day. That truly tickles me, as we have always said the stores are meant to be extensions of our homes. When we are recognized by magazines or awards, it is just the cherry on top of the cake. 

To the customer and blog reader who brought me my favorite ruffly creamy yellow tulips from the Alm Hill Gardens stall at the Market yesterday, you made my day! A lovely week-end to you all, wherever you are on the globe. I hope you find great comfort & joy that your home can bring to you. X, Ted



Shredding Scissors in Seattle Magazine

20150606-063018.jpg Was delighted to see the full page spread of a pair of our quite cool and oh so useful shredding scissors in Seattle Magazine yesterday. A customer came up to me holding this page that he had cut out of the magazine. I knew one of the editors had borrowed a pair for a photo shoot, but I was tickled to see how fun the shot turned out. The scissors really are quite something. We have sold them for years. Perfect to have in the kitchen to snip herbs, such as chives. Equally great at the desk for manual shredding. But what we like to use them for the most at the shops is fringing the edges of tissue and wrapping paper. Plus the red handles makes them interesting visually to leave out as a conversation piece.

A happy Saturday to each and every one of you…
From sunny Seattle,



Seattle Magazine Mentions

20140425-050335.jpg The May issue of Seattle magazine just hit newsstands and we had a few lovely mentions.

20140425-050519.jpg The first was highlighting Style & Simplicity. This tied in nicely with it also being the issue that they cover top home decor shops, which we received a shout-out in, as well.

20140425-051010.jpg There was also a fab mention in Ernie Pino’s column of the new cookies we stock at Watson Kennedy by Carla Hall. She was recently in Seattle and made a WK stop. We adore Carla from her ‘Top Chef’ days so when I received the e-mail from her saying she loved the shop and asking if I would be interested in carrying her cookies, I was so happy to oblige. These tasty little nuggets are filled with the love & enthusiasm that has become her trademark.

Thank you so much Seattle magazine for all stylish words!
