Ahoy, Matey.

Did you hear? Boating season is about to begin.

How'd you like to swan around the docks in one of these?

Or maybe take this one twenty thousand leagues under the sea to keep you warm in your steam punk submarine.


And this one for the clambake on the beach, where your scarf can imply it should be a lobster feed.

Don't think we're going all Vegas on you.

Finding just the right amount of sparkle to wear during the day is tough.
Too much looks like New Years' Eve. Too little is wimpy.

Happily, we have Druzy this season to give us the perfect little glow.
A generous collection of necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets have just arrived

Druzy stones are a huge trend this season, and ours from Jeweler Sonia Renee are what we consider some of the best to be had.

Perfect with a summer maxi dress, or a white tee shirt and those colored denim skinny jeans you have been dying to break out. ( You have some, right?)

That little bit of shimmer they give off is not too much,
and all you need.

Hungry Hungry Hippo.

What will you make your Hippo eat? Some flowers? Pencils? A bunch of leftover Easter candy?

The fantastical designers at Imm living are at it again, and this wide mouthed Hippo particularly caught our eye.
Does he catch yours too?

When you want an original, look no further.

You may think you have seen a Jeanine Payer hand engraved piece of jewelry before, but most likely not.
The world is flooded with copycats and wannabes, stamping and casting trite phrases into metal, hoping nobody will be able to tell the difference.

But once you have seen the real deal, there is absolutely no mistaking it. Every element handmade, every letter hand engraved. And the scale of the engraving, the lilliputian size of it, always leaves people scratching their heads, asking, "how on earth?"

"Love is the salutation of the angels to the stars"

"When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves"

"Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing there is a field. I'll meet you there."

"Live and create. Live to the point of tears."

"You yourself, as much as anyone in the entire universe, deserves your love and affection."

Pieces from the new Spring collection are now in the shop. Come by and have a look, get schooled a little, and indulge yourself in something that will never, ever fall out of fashion.

This Tano bag would like to have a stare down contest with you.

New Spring colors have landed in the shop. This one is called Marigold.

This one is called Cornflower.

And this one, Peony.
All glorious colors of Spring, all constructed from gorgeous Spanish leather.

And Tano has been tweaking their already great pricing a bit, so that instead of only one stem , you can afford a whole bouquet.
