Lovely Linen

Let me begin this post by saying that the temperature in Austin, Texas today is almost 80 degrees, which may make part of this post seem less random...  Yes, I am about to do a blog post in January about linen dresses.

One of our linen vendors has been in business for over 100 years.  We have a lot of their hemstitched guest towels that we then have monogrammed and are fabulous gifts.  However, they also produce classic baby gifts (like baby pillow shams and baptism dresses), bed linen and table top linens.  Yesterday we received an order of precious linen hemstitched dresses for little girls, that are going to look incredible monogrammed.  We also received their linen hemstitched tooth fairy pillows. Not only are these items precious and classic they are super affordable!  The dress is $36.50 + $14 for the monogram and they go up to a size 5.  The tooth fairy pillow is $7.

We've got Valentines!

I am not one of those people that despises Valentine's Day.  I like chocolate, candy, wine, hand written notes and the color pink.  I also like letting my friends and family members know I love them.  With that being said, what's not to like? I get it - it is a fluff holiday, but I enjoy a certain aspect of it.  So if you share any of my above sentiments, let it be known that we currently have a great selection of Valentine cards (that are not too mushy) and invitations.  Make the most of this fluff holiday.  Let the people in your life that you love know it on this day.

Pretty Stationery

Because it's the new year, and Crane is having a stationery sale and because it is NOT a pretty day here in the ATX, I thought the least I could do was share some pretty stationery.  Happy Saturday!  I'm here till 4:00 p.m. today if anyone feels inspired to pick out some lovely stationery on this grey day.

Crane & Co. Die Sale!

It's the time of year to write thank you notes for all those holiday gifts.  It's also the time of year for the Crane & Co. die sale.  Here's the scoop - buy 100 (or more) piece of stationery and receive your engraving or letterpress plates for FREE!  They are usually $48 each, so if you were to have your stationery and envelopes engraved that would be a $96 savings.  Now is the time to buy your stationery.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

A lot of our vendors send us holiday cards (they are in the business), which is fun to see what they select.  My favorite this year was Sugar Paper's triplexed card (white with red in the middle) with red letterpressed text.  They never disappoint.  I believe they also summed it up pretty well - "wishing you a restful holiday and a happy new year".  I wish the same to all of you.  Thanks for making this season a great one!

We'll be closed for the holidays and for inventory.  We are closing at 2:00 p.m. tomorrow (Christmas Eve) and will be closed through Sunday, January 4th.  We'll reopen refeshed, cleaned-out, organized and ready for a new year at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, January 5th.  See you in the New Year!
