Holiday Collectibles

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Part of the joy of Christmas is pulling out all of the decorations we’ve accumulated over the years and all of the memories associated with them. From “Our First Home” to “Baby’s First Christmas,” and every handmade paper-and-glitter star after that, each piece holds a special place in my heart. And adding to these collections is an exciting part of the holiday tradition for me, and for many of you, I suspect.

It’s not too early to start thinking about adding pieces to your holiday collections, or even to begin your own! We have a lovely selection of new items, like Peanuts Village and Snowbabies Dream, or add-ons to the Dickens Village, A Christmas Story and others. Have a look at our holiday collectibles assortment and choose pieces for yourself, or start someone else’s collection with a gift. You’ll be creating holiday memories for years to come.

Bridal Bests: Fine China

Friday, October 26, 2012

Contrary to its delicate appearance, fine china is not fragile. In fact, fine china is actually among the most durable, long-lasting dinnerware available.  Lightweight and lasting, with beautiful translucence and brightness, fine china - even if used every day - will last for years to come. Here are a few of my favorite patterns to fit key aesthetics:

Traditional.  You can't go wrong with a timeless, classic china pattern with an elegant platinum band. Try Noritake's Crestwood Platinum, which features a broad platinum-band border on white porcelain. The border is intricately accented with a softly frosted background and geometric flourishes.

Home Décor Perk-Ups: Fall 2012

Friday, October 19, 2012

With the changing of the season, you’ve probably have replaced your summer wardrobe of shorts and t-shirts with tights, sweaters and tall boots.  Why not give your home décor a little Autumn infusion as well?  These seasonal touches will leave you craving hot cider and searching for a pumpkin to carve:  

Seasonal Scented Candles.  Fill your home with the scents of the season using scented candles from Woodwick or Yankee Candle.  Place in any room that needs seasonal charm.

Festive Wreath.  Wreaths are the perfect way to infuse seasonal warmth into your living space.  This Nearly Natural® Autumn Pumpkin Wreath would look perfect hanging on your front door or a wall inside.

Table Linens.  You likely spend a fair amount of time gathered at the dining room table. Make it the perfect backdrop to infuse an autumn-inspired touch with a fall-themed table cloth or runner.   


Your top drawer is getting a MAJOR makeover!

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Ladies, it’s time to toss out all of your old underthings – Jockey and Rachel Zoe are making you glam. With the recent announcement of their partnership, Stylist and Fashion Icon Rachel Zoe has curated a selection of “major must haves” from Jockey that will feature underwear and shapewear. Each carefully selected style marries Jockey’s expertise in creating comfortable, fashionable and solution-based underwear with Zoe’s enviable style and sophistication.

Rachel Zoe, a name synonymous with fashion and glamour, has become the definitive expert on style. But, ladies, as we both know, the right underpinnings will help you make the most of your curves and what’s in your closet. And, of course, Zoe’s “major must haves” mirror Zoe’s fashion sense—they’re stylish and insanely comfortable.  Have you noticed we love that they’re comfortable and stylish?
“I’m proud to support Jockey’s new initiatives in shapewear and intimates,” said Rachel Zoe. “Style starts from within, and having the right foundation is critical to the ultimate success of your outfit. I love marrying comfort with style, and this new collection by Jockey does just that.”

The shapewear can be best described as “cotton-rich comfort meets all-day curve control.” Featuring a unique, patented three-panel design, this new line includes tanks, shorts, slips and briefs that are fashionable, comfortable and slimming. Each piece is made with breathable, soft cotton-spandex for all-day comfort.

The collection also offers two distinct lines of fashion-forward underwear in a variety of styles including bikinis, thongs, hipsters, boyshorts and tanks. The bottoms offer a “cheeky” cut in fun, modern silhouettes. Each style is available in eye-catching prints and fab colors. Fabrications including microfiber modal, nylon and spandex guarantee comfort, while feminine detailing, such as touches of lace, adds a flirty flair.

With MUCH! excitement I share Rachel Zoe's "Major Must Haves" from Jockey.

Saddle Up!

Thursday, October 11, 2012

I love fall because it means I can finally pull out my boots.  This year, one of the biggest trends is the equestrian boot, otherwise known as the riding boot.  I've never been on a horse in my life, but this is one of my favorite fall trends. There is something luxurious and classic about the look.  Even better, you can dress them up for a day at work or wear them with your favorite pair of skinny jeans topped with a long chunky cardigan sweater for the weekend.  I can pull this look together effortlessly and I'm ready in a flash for my son's chilly football games or even to run errands.  Take a look at our assortment and splurge a little.  I think you will see how versatile they can be.
