The Perfect Fragrance

Meet Graciella

Graciella pays homage to the unparalleled beauty and sophistication of Grace Kelly,
Opening with the fresh scents of Watery Apricot and Asian Pear, it blooms into a rich bouquet of Ylang Ylang and Rose de Mai.  The fragrance deepens into the heady spice of the Casablanca Lily, warmed by Cashmere Musk and Iris, resulting in a beautifully lush, floral perfume as unforgettable as its muse.
Now this is the perfect Fragrance!
We just received Graciella so come in a treat yourself or someone on your list.

We are staying open until 8:00 pm Monday through Friday this week only for your convience of shopping.

A big Thank You

A big Thank You for all who came to the Holiday Tour of Homes in Kirkland.
It was a huge success and they had their best turnout ever! 
Here are all the girls who made this house so beautiful with all their amazing touches.
Thank You, Thank You

On Friday, the holiday home tour in Kirkland will happen once again.  We are especially excited as this year our decorating team at
Haley's Cottage will be helping with one of the homes.  We have some great ideas to add to the already beautiful home of
Lauren and Stanley. 
All the home owners have worked very hard to make this year a great display of Holiday Decorations.
Bring your girlfriends, and make a day of it!

Celebrations is a self-guided tour of local homes beautifully decorated for the holidays, focused in Kirkland. Ticket holders will be able to tour six unique homes.

The Assistance League of the Eastside sells about 1000 tickets annually and the money raised benefits survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence and provides clothing for children in the Bellevue, Lake Washington, and Northshore school district.
Friday, December 9, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Mindi and Jeff's "Noel Francais"

 As you drive up Pine Street in Snohomish, you can't help but notice
Mindi and Jeff's beauitifully lit house.  They probably have the prettiest lights in town.
Mindi was gracious enough to have me come over and see her holiday decor.
I am sure this is the way the french decorate for the holidays!
 As you enter, you can't help but notice this huge, I mean huge urn filled with lights.  This photo doesn't even compare to what it looks like in person.  I have been hearing about this urn, but was very surprised when I saw it in person.
 This is Mindi's chandelier tree as it only has crystal prisims on it.
From outside, this is the tree downstairs.
 Another little tree in the living room.  Simple, but elegant!
 This tree also faces the street upstairs with just little turquoise glass balls
along with some white feathered trees.
Of course they have a french looking 20 lb cat.
Look at his mustache a goatee, he is quite handsome!

A Great Stocking Stuffer, my favorite!

I am a tooth brushing maniac and always carry a tooth brush.
Now, how cute are these.  They brush 22,000 strokes per minute and have this cute little case .
No more wrapping your tooth brush in a paper towel, zip lock, or those horrible little portable brushes.

A Paint Transformation for Haley's Cottage

 Here is our new pretty pink wall.  Debra from Decorative Finishes gave us a new
facelift by just painting a few walls.  This was done using a vintage pink with a stencil of charcoal and taupes.
It is amazing!
 When you enter the store, the wall is now painted cast iron from our
Authentic Home Paint collection. The color is unbelievable!
 Debra also painted on each side of our wood wall and it really made the wood pop.
It's nice to have someone get you out of your comfort level.

Our Smoke wall is now Pink!
It all started when we saw pink at the Aidian Gray showroom.  

Our counter used to be white beadboard.  Now it looks like
re-cycled wood, thanks to Debra.  Shades of grays and browns.
Now we get to get ready for Holiday setup!

Chalk Paint Transformation

I just got the before and after's of Violet's coffee table
using our every so popular Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
Violet used the paris gray with a dark wax on top.
The only thing I would do different is use the Annie Sloan
Soft Dark Wax and then finish it with her clear wax.  I think it might be a
easier technique.  Other than that it turned out beautiful.  Here is a link to her
blog that show it all.  We have a large shipment coming in the end of the week, so get your projects ready!

Only 30 days until Haley's Wedding!

 In the last couple of days, we have been finalizing all of Haley's Wedding Details.
It seems so far off when you start planning a wedding and now all of a sudden it is 30 days away.
So we finalized some of the details on Monday.  The jewelry from Tippy Stockton.  We picked out some of the vintage findings, pearls, and a bit of bling. I can't wait to see the final creation. 
 Met with Maxine from Maxine's Floral.
Yikes, too many decisions from this very creative girl.
But... I think we got it handled. 
 Haley had her dress fitting on Monday, of course she had to have it taken in.
Remember those skinny days! 
We headed to Hidden Meadows last night to figure out a couple of things.
So many decisions!  Table linens, how many tables, decor, placement of candles,
the list goes on and on.  Hopefully the sun will shine on September 30th and they can have their wedding under the gazebo. 
Well, my mind is going crazy on all the details, wish me luck and an abundance of energy.

Do you have a Coobie?

If you haven't tried one, you should. 
This soft, one size fits all bra is one of my best sellers in the store.
Originally we purchased them for pajama bras.  But our customers are using them for everyday bras, yoga bras, exercise bras, weekend bras, pajama bras, and our customers who have had mastectomy's love them as well as they are so comfortable.  You can take the padding out if you wish.
We have them available in white, ivory, nude, black, pink, blue, gray, and charcoal.
We do offer plus size in black and white (just a bit wider).
The best part, this bra is only $20.00.

Back from Hot Vegas!

 When we arrived at midnight, we took this picture from our hotel room.
Of course, we stayed at the Paris which I totally recommend.  The most comfortable bed ever.
The Paris also has amazing restaurants, almost a little city there, all indoors.
 Well, we ordered this amazing bed complete with headboard, foot board and rails.
Even nail heads!  We ordered it in a washed burlap.
 This is a new headboard program that you have a choice of different styles of headboards.
More info to follow...
 Another cute complete bed but with distressed black wood frame.
 Love this smaller table and these darling tufted velvet chairs.
 Now, this is the daddy of sofa's.  108" long with lots of tufting.
We may have to order this soon, just need space to put it in.
 This dining chair has two different fabrics, I love the one on the back with the crown.
 New dining table from Dovetail with the greatest dining chairs.  This will be our next dining table!
 Just a great swag that I may have to copy to put on our Christmas Tree, very easy to make.
Another cute smaller dining table for two.
Actually it extends out from a skinny table.  The chairs have a great cane back.
We found lots of great items for the shop and had a good time with my daughter Heather
despite the 100 degree weather.  We go back to Vegas in a couple weeks for the clothing show,
just hoping it cools off a bit so I can go outdoors.  Hate the heat!!!
