Hello, and hope you are doing well, cannot believe it’s almost Labor Day weekend and that summer is coming to a close. First of all, you will definitely want to sit down and take 15 to read this post or put off reading this until you have time, as there is a lot of content here….trust me:) Two or three times a year I put out a post which is kind of like a newsletter about all that is happening over here. The time felt right to update you on many fronts as there are lots of exciting things churning over this way while we continue to put the finishing touches on the office and new space aka our new headquarters. Let’s just say Covid and not being out and about as I normally am allowed my creative energy to go on overdrive and I have been dreaming, creating and manufacturing to my hearts content:) The move to our new digs was a big move and one which I had to really consider, but feel it was definitely needed and was the right “next move”. It’s double the space and has several offices, both which were desperately needed. I look forward to sharing with you the evolution of how things come together sometime in the next few weeks, as the dust begins to settle. Meanwhile we will have a lot of work to do in organizing and getting square away..hopefully in a few weeks. So sit back and enjoy this “newsletter” about all that is happening and all of the beautiful things we have coming in. In exchange for your partaking in various small polls throughout the post, I am offering a giveaway! I consider you all afterall, to be the ultimate focus group. One lucky winner will win one a pair of our best selling Staffordshire dogs just in time for fall decorating! OK, and here we go- ________________________________________________ On the wicker/basketweave front, our line continues to grow. I have always loved wicker anything and must say I am just completely smitten with the new products. Ginger jars, planters, new hurricanes and hold onto your hats…… fabulous new wicker pagodas! These will be offered in three sizes and will be available later Sept/first week of Oct. We will as we always do hold a presale so stay tuned. Love the box planters and ginger jars!! We have a shipment coming in about 10 days and another late Sept. These are available to preorder, click here The wicker pagodas were just added as a preorder option, click here to see And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, sit down for this one…….a wicker tulipere!!I am so incredibly excited about these!! We just finished the first sample and so far so good. The base is galvanized metal so they can easily be filled and hold water. This has me dreaming of setting up a beautiful table. Can you even! I am really anticipating these…..in about 5 weeks we will get the first shipment. They are so fabulous, I even experimented with a little flower photo shopping just to get an idea:) Thoughts on these wicker tulipieres? Forget what you think about pagodas….say hello to these fabulous new coming soon additions. How gorgeous and sweet are these!! They have me dreaming of setting up a beautiful luncheon table. Will start by offering these in three colorways. Stay tuned:) Thoughts on these new style pagodas? And how about this darling and charming bunny version? Thinking in pale blue and pink in addition the green. Great fur nurseries, spring and Easter! Now switching gears to holiday, yes it will be here before you know it! We are going to be officially introducing our 2020 giftwrap and ornament collection in September. This year things are starting earlier since we now are doing wholesale and I think with the year we have had, many of us are really looking forward to delving into something beautiful and joyous like the holidays. All papers will be reversible and done in our super high quality thick gift wrap paper. We will also offer all patterns this year in tissue. I need your opinion however, on offering holiday tote gift bags. Here are some pictures hot off the press, literally and figuratively….these beauties are officially on their way (will hold a presale sometime later Sept) _Thoughts on holiday tote bags? Equally excited over the new topiary ornaments collection coming! I am dreaming of the tree I will set with these beauties. I also love ginger jar ball ornaments and we even have done a tulipIere ornament, how could we not:) They are officially on the way and we will do a presale on them in about 2-3 weeks, Here is a sneak peek at the ornaments- And here is a sneak peek at the 5.5″ tulipiere ornament! Moving along to the subject of tabletop/dinnerware. Something I have an obsession with (and a china closet to prove it) I am very excited about this possible venture, working on a plate collection. Not just any plate:) The minimums are enormous so I need to carefully consider this big leap but when you believe an something, you are more inclined to go for it. I am a sucker for anything pierced except noses lol. Just a design element I have always been drawn to. So this is the first of possibly several other pieces, thoughts on this beautiful white pierced charger? I love that it can be dressed up or down and the color will allow it to go with anything. I am looking into adding a dinner plate, salad plate and bowl and definitely need your feedback for these porcelain pierced pieces. Thoughts on these pierced chargers and possibly dinnerware? Our chinoiserie tole line continues to be a big hit and expanding. It is very hard to find new chinoiserie pieces and there is only one other company (who I bought from before I started making my own) who is prohibitively expensive. One reason I started my own line. My pieces if I can say so myself are magnificent but affordable. These are so timeless and incredible elegant. Here is a sneak peek of items just out of production on their way to us now! And here are a few samples of the 2 new murals coming in (will be offered in five color fields) and will be framed With the holidays looming, our silver really shines during this period, both literally and figuratively. I think our silver collection is one of the biggest and best out there. In fact,I will say (and I hear this often) it’s hard to find a nice selection of nice quality new silver. Which is exactly why I curated this collection to begin with. Our mint juleps, chargers, planters and tray selection is incredible and so amazing for the entertaining season of the holidays. Here are some favorites- Click here to see all of our silver (subcategories are on the left) Chargers, something for everyone! Our mint julep selection is vast- How about our gorgeous trays, from gallery trays to vanity to serving trays, love using my silver trays around the holidays! And don’t forget we have a fabulous selection of serving utensils! Turning to out etched glass collection whichwas a big hit from the. moment it hit our warehouse. We are sold out of almost every piece but getting in a huge container in about 3 weeks. We will be holding an arrival sale once they land. I started this line because I have always loved etched glass, I have pieces that are antique stemware and I was surprised when looking for new pieces to add, how hard it it so to find! Why? I have no idea because people still love it. It’s classically beautiful.In addition to bringing back all of our best sellers here is what’s new with the etched glass collection- A new design hurricane (and drinking glass) we are working on perfecting, getting there (now awaiting second revised sample) Meanwhile we are getting all sizes of all of our beautiful patterns back in stock within about 3 weeks! So one thing I love is etched drinking glasses/barware, have had a hard time finding except for William Yeoward’s line which I love and have a few pieces of except that they are extremely expensive. Surprisingly very hard to find. So…….necessity being the other of invention, I had samples created of these low and high balls and let me tell you I LOVE them!!! These are a very high quality etched glass. Would aim to get them in time for the holiday entertaining season……these are three of the four designs that will be offered! Need your opinion! Who knew that these gorgeous embroidered masks would be such a hit!! Tis the year of 2020. We are taking orders on pale blue and white, which we have been sold out but actually get our Sept early! So excited that our big shipment will be here next Tues and we will get busy sending orders in the order they were received. Here are the pale blue and the white masks, you can preorder by clicking here A few new colors that are also quite beautiful for you to take a look at. These are lighter (a peachy pink and a soft green) which are stunning but wondering if you think still a good idea given we are going into fall/winter? Would love your take- How beautiful is the hand embroidery! Thoughts on which if any of these softer tones would be a good addition now? And thoughts on these colors below with fall/winter in mind? OK time for you to chime, check all the colors you think would be a good addition- Which colors do you think would be good additions to the shop? And last but hardly not least, we end with porcelains. We will have four more containers arriving before the end of the year, bringing back some of our best selling pieces, plenty of tulipieres and many new additions. We will hold our Sept container presale next week. Here is a sneak peek at some of what is coming in- Our incredible new Mimi vase (2 sizes) will be here in about 5-6 weeks. We will offer these via a presale soon! New color tulpieres- green and red! (the green looks like a gray green but it’s a true dark green) _Thoughts on introducing etched high ball and low ball glassware?
