Spring Scarf: Ombre Animal Print

While the creature that might have inspired this design doesn't exist in the wild, the pattern on this gauzy cotton scarf will appeal to animal-print lovers of all ages.
The tones of cream, black and gray ombre give the pattern a versatile sophistication. This is the kind of scarf you just toss on, improvise the drape, and look great every time you wear it.

Animal print cotton scarf - $18.50

Introducing the Clara Wristlet

A few years back cell phones were getting smaller, as flip phones were all the rage. The advent of smart phones means that we need more space to carry our portable electronics..
I have a Droid X, which is possibly the big daddy smart phone in measurements. Larger than the iPhone, it tucks easily into the exterior back pocket of the Clara wristlet (above).

I road-tested a Clara on vacation recently and loved having the phone separate from my cash, room card, and lipstick, which I stashed in main pouch. Our mini wallets tuck beautifully into this compact design.

Clara made of espresso pebble faux suede with red bird ribbon, $44. Matching mini wallet $14. Available in our Seattle store or via email.

Valentine's Cards for Everyone You Love

I took this quick picture with my phone so that I could show you the adorable Valentine's Day cards that we have this year. Hand screen-printed by the folks at Great Arrow in Buffalo, New York, each card is like a tiny work of art. The ink has a luminous, velvety quality that I haven't seen anywhere else.

This front of this card and a big thumbprint character with the words, "Happy Valentine's Day," on the front. The inside reads, "From thumbbody who loves you!" We have several other styles available, both for romantic love as well as friendship.

PS - We will be open this Monday, Valentine's Day, for last minute shoppers. (You know who you are!) Our hours will be Noon to 6 pm.
