Sweaters to Betsy

I picked green...
Anne picked grey:)
Surprise! We ordered up a whole new batch of Wooden Ships sweaters to finish out the season. They arrived yesterday and look amazing. The line really lends itself to personal style because their sweaters have a sense of being basic with just a hint of  their own personality. Of course, Anne and I had to pick one out for ourselves. Shoulda snapped an Instagram but there's always time for that; feels like it's going to be a cold winter.

More Fun Than a Night Out in Miami

Last night was the first of many seasonal celebrations both in our personal lives and at the store; like there's a difference!:) Visiting with our longtime customers really is like catching up with family and that makes our Holiday Open House a big annual Wildflower family reunion.

Every year, on the morning after the party, I sit here and reflect on all the people who stopped by. It's totally inspiring when we have so many of our loyal and beautiful customers in the shop at the same time drinking champagne and helping each other pick out the perfect thing. A few of our favorite men always stop by too; every family reunion needs some husbands and fathers, right!?

When two of the revelers wrapped up the night by saying "This has been more fun than a night out in Miami!" we knew it had been a great event, and once again the holidays had officially started.
