pampered pooch

So I've heard that I carry THE BEST doggie shampoo. I had no clue, but I am now I am wiped out of Jack Black All Over Wash. Word is, it gives them silky soft hair and rids them of their doggie odor. I can't wait to pamper my little "Petite Perfection" tonight!

Juliska Fall 2010

Have you seen the Juliska Fall entertaining ads? They are gorgeous. I love how they mixed dainty hand-blown glass with the pewter. My eyes instantly gravitate to the hurricane vase with the apples, the masculine candlesticks, the bamboo handle pitcher, and the "Ralph Lauren" slate walls. I love to see the bamboo and delicate glass pieces transition so beautifully into the fall. Oh, and of course I love those Isabella footed water glasses! They are already on my Christmas list!

By they way, the bamboo collection is new for Juliska. I don't have these in stock, but I can gladly order some sample pieces if you would love to see them up close. As for Juliska's "pewter", it is actually their stoneware with a metallic glaze finish. It has the look of pewter, but dishwasher and microwave safe.

Oh dear. Look who got into my arts and crafts supplies in the back of the store. If only they could help me with my book keeping! Can't wait to see their costumes!


I decided to do a simple arts and crafts project for Lavish this weekend that I wanted to share. Bunting is super-duper easy, quick and inexpensive. All you need is fabric, scissors, a hot glue gun and rope (I used a clothes line rope).(I used quarters which already gave me lines where I needed to cut)

$20 and less than an hour later...

Happy Fall!
And this is just the beginning of our fall window. Someone's having costumes made...


Rikshaw just had a photo shoot and I couldn't help but notice new bedding in the background! I'll get the scoop and see if we can have a little trunk show sometime this fall.
(wish rolls on my thighs looked that cute...)

I love these shams and especially the quilt. Wouldn't it be wonderful to wrap up in it for morning coffee on one of these porches?

or have matching Taj quilts for these beds....

Catherine Canino

... inspired by hardware, nature, things old and new, and people with impeccable style...
We picked up this jewelry line at the New York Jewelry and Accessory show, but to me, the line has a very charming and southern look.
It's the classics, shaken and stirred just a bit... just the way I like it!

River Rocks

Just got in these beautiful hand blown glass river rocks. They are shimmery, iridescent and look different from every angle, which is why you just can't keep your eyes and hands off them! I think they are ideal for a paper weight or a treasure on your coffee table. These are rocks you don't want to skip... come check them out. They would make a great gift for you man!

Just so you know, we will be closed on Monday. We need a break from all this laboring.
This is how we intend on spending the day...

Have a great weekend!

New Look #1

We were busy little bees this past weekend. Fortunately all of our hard work paid off and everything looks wonderful. Here are some pictures of the front of the store... quite possibly my favorite section of the shop. Match and Juliska perfectly complement each other.
Come by this Friday from 5:30-8 for cupcakes, champagne, and 15% off all Match and Juliska!

More pictures of the rest of the shop will be up soon!
