What's Up With These Pictures?

Whose dog is this? Why is he in my picture file?

Now this picture is really scary

This picture is a little puzzling, this is an unfinished kitchen.
maybe I just liked the cabinets.

I don't want to bore you with my thousands of unusual pictures. They do get worse, I think the time has come that I spend at least a week cleaning these out. I wonder if any of you save a picture and think I better not delete this, I may just need it for something. Is that the same as all the clothes that hang in our closets that we feel we will need? Or if I loose the 20 lbs. I will fit into that size 4. What about the Christmas clad sweater that someone gave you 10 years ago. You know, the one with the poofie Santa and the large Christmas stockings with sequins on the back. Maybe we think that person with the awful taste will show up on Christmas Eve and expect you to be wearing it or maybe we hold onto these to re-gift. Yikes! That would truly be a tag your it gift.

If any of these pictures were for inspiration then I should fold up my tent and head for home.

Happy Thanksgiving To All

Where has this week gone? I am in one of those frenzies trying to clear my house of all the fabric, buttons and trim just to make my home presentable for all the guest arriving on Thursday. The chaos is sometimes more comfortable than being organized. This week Laura and I were scrambling to get orders shipped before the big mail crunch.

We did however get one of our new pillows finished, and both of us just love it. Let us know what you think, we are still doing the high five each time we look at it. Laura is the master in French and I just love the saying on this pillow.

We wish you and your loved ones a blessed and happy Thanksgiving.

Life Has Been So Hectic

Laura and I have been so busy, and excited that we are finally able to offer you some of our newest designs. We have had a great response from some of our dear customers, their feedback has been fantastic. When starting a new line you can't help but feel some trepidation. We get so excited with each new design and can't wait to get it out to the public, but at the same it's like sending your child off for the first day of school. Will they just love her, will she feel accepted?

The process really is so much fun, Laura and I get so ahead of ourselves, so it's great that we are able to ground each other. We love our new tote, it is large and roomie and of course we had to have the 22" straps. I hate a tote that has skimpy straps. I always have mine jam packed with all sorts of goodies, so I need the long strap to throw it over my shoulder, while balancing books and samples in the other hand.

Our pillows are fabulous, (hate to brag) but we both love them. Laura does such a great job with the design aspect. I always feel so bad for her as I am constantly suggesting one more little accent. It is such a good thing that she keeps me grounded.

We do hope you will stop back often and take a look at some of our new designs. By all means, do leave a comment, we love to hear from all of you.
