My friend, Lauren, who had the store photo shoot for me emailed me the photos the other day.  
Here's a teaser - there are some great ones!  
I couldn't be more pleased.  Now I just need to place them on the new website.  

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Crane & Co. Sale

Another sale that is going on right now is a Crane & Co. promotion.  Crane & Co. has selected some of their top selling ink colors and cards and selling 50 sets of cards and envelopes WITH envelope liners for $99!  You can select from any of their many fonts or monograms to have printed on the note or card.  It's quite a deal.

Dabney Lee Sale

Dabney Lee is having a 20% off sale on all their stationery in the "moderne" album and all their invitations in the "soiree" album.  The only downside to this sale is trying to figure out which one you want.  All of the backing patterns are incredible - modern, current, clean and fun.  Then you have to decide what size card, what font, ink color, printing process (flat printing or letterpress) and envelope liner.  The upside (besides that it is on  sale) is you really can't make a bad choice since it is hard to go wrong with any of their options.  The sale is through August 1st - hurry, hurry.

I'll be in the store, working tomorrow (come see me).  
But somehow I still love a Friday.

I'm a Winner!

A few weeks back I filled out a post card survey for Tart Paperie.  Tart Paperie is one of our vendors with some of the greatest designs (just a few shown above).  This morning I had an email from them saying that I'd won some glitter invitations!  Imagine my excitement that not only had I received an email that was not spam, but informing me I'd won something!  I needed a pick-me-up and I certainly got it.  Thank you so much Tart Paperie.

I Need a Pool

How I wish I had this pool (and house)
to go home to this evening...
It would really be so nice on a day like today to have a pool.

My friend Lauren just sent us the pictures from Anna & Rob's wedding weekend back in April.
So fun to see all the pictures.  This photograph was from the rehearsal dinner.  
The setting was divine and it was so much fun!

Sorry I've been missing in action.  The beginning of July (4th of July weekend to be exact) we had the seagrass floor redone.  The old seagrass was starting to wear and look a little sad - I guess that isn't so bad considering it was originally installed in September of 2003.  Isn't the new seagrass lovely though?  It smells a little bit like a barn of hay when you first walk in the door.  I'm sure that smell will dissipate.  So we had to take the store completely apart the day before installation and then put everything back together on Monday, July 5th so we'd be ready for business on Tuesday. 

Then, last weekend and the beginning of this week I was in Myrtle Beach, S.C..  It was nice to have a break, but it is also quite nice to be back in my routine.
