Tokyo-Milk Cards

"He's all that and a bag of chips. Congratulations on your engagement."

"Trust me, totally hot"

"Special Delivery, Congratulations"

"You're still, irresistibly foxy - Happy Birthday"

"Congratulations on your new foray into coupledom"

We have finally received, after five long months of waiting, our cards from Tokyo-Milk. These cards are hand-glittered, watercolor images with the wittiest remarks! We are the only store in town to carry this amazing line of cards, and if you make a special trip to the shop to pick some up, you won't be disappointed. Don't you love them?

Santa Love

I really can't believe the amount of Christmas already out there. Our local radio stations started playing Christmas music on November 1st. I have been receiving Christmas catalogs for months. My neighbors all have their Christmas decorations up and on. Yikes! I was almost thinking I didn't like Christmas, until I received the Sundance Catalog. I have fallen in love with this amazing nostalgic light-up Santa and his team of reindeer. The whole set, including Rudolph, is $695. If I had that much extra money right now, I would have a set. My kids would love it - my neighbors would hate it. This is just what I needed to see to fall in love with Christmas again.

Natasha's Mulberry & Mott

Have you ever walked in to a store/restaurant/coffee shop and been overwhelmed by where you are? Recently, I visited Natasha Goellner's new location at 105th and Mission Road, and felt just like that. Her place is perfectly amazing. Perfect white walls, a vintage crystal chandelier, darling racks of ribbon and cakes and pastries galore! It is so full of whimsy and magic. So please, if you are in Kansas City and can take a moment, stop in and tell her hello. I know this has been a labor of love for them - and they should be so proud!

Thanks So Much

It is our opinion that Thanksgiving may be the most overlooked Holiday of all. In a rush to get to Christmas, everyone just wizzes right by it. We love it. We love the time with family and the fact that nothing is open. We love Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and getting dressed up to stay home and eat! What a treat. And most importantly, we love that an entire day is devoted to being thankful for what we have and who we are. We are especially fortunate to be able to help people say Thank You all year long. So before you become consumed in the Holiday Rush - take some time to write a Thank You note - I am sure you can find someone to thank and a great piece of stationery to write it on!
