some great jewelry that I had to share it with all of you.
Upper left photo: A Temple St. Clair crystal pendant
Lower right photo: A datura pod in 14K plate and guest book was a birthday gift to a friend
Rachael was wearing a gorgeous green in her bag, her shirt
and in her necklace which she made!
Gretchen Mattox, a friend of Peter's, mentioned that some of her poetry was chosen by Jeanine Payer to be engraved on some of her pieces. I was able to show Peter, a pair of earrings in our case, with one of Gretchen's quotes.
Peter's t-shirt on the right has the word sprinkles on it. I don't know why, but, I wanted to take a photo of it...

This woman was wearing a simple black sundress with a straight neckline (in that sort of crinkly cotton fabric), that went straight to the ankle, black flat sandals with a funky knot design, a bold leather cuff bracelet and a Me & Ro necklace with sanskript lettering that translated to "Fearlessness" on a small gold rectangle hanging off a thin gold chain.
I missed taking a photo of her bag which was quite large but seemed to blend well with her outfit.

I've been seeing a cute uniform on women this summer:
fitted summer blazer over jeans with either flats or the birkenstock "Gizeh" which I've been meaning to buy for the past year...
Theme: summer-y stripes
I first saw her bag and her shoes:
Bag by kate spade - slight trapezoid shape in black with flat wooden handles and cutouts.
There was also a piece of wide striped fabric down the middle on both sides.
Blue jeans with striped seersucker flats, i think, from jcrew
- pink oxford shirt with her own necklace draped over the open neckline
- light blue jacket that was slightly lighter than the pink oxford which punched with color

dark curly hair
light brown rectangular glasses
and taupe top
all come together with the crinkly scarf in warm mustards...
E., (on the right) also has a knack of having great accessories & bags. Her dress came without the wide black scarf which now gives it some pizazz! I love the classic shape of her bag which is nice and shallow so one can find everything at a glance. Every so often it is good for me to carry smaller bags like E.'s, however, I begin to miss lugging half of my apt in my bag...

upper right photo and counterclockwise: (12) individual postcards in a handsome grey box
I am loving this new vendor we brought in last week. I am all about packaging and how well it will fit on our shelves so the handsome grey boxes that these postcards and note cards come in are pretty great! Come check them out!
Never, ever bring this up again;
You are right I am wrong;
I am wrong You are right;
I don't even know what we are arguing about;
I'm in a bad mood and am taking it out on you;...
Multiples of each saying totaling (25) cards per box

I had a wonderful conversation with this mother & daughter (above) who were in NYC for the Food Show last weekend. I had been eyeing the dress on the right (from jcrew) and liked how she layered it with a tank underneath! Green, one of my favorite colors!
They had been peering into the Jeanine Payer case and the daughter showed off a pair of Jeanine's earrings, given to her by her mother, for graduation.
"we are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams".
I thought the pattern of his friend's dress with his own bright orange shirt reflected his color choices of the marbles for his mother.
Another one of my customers, who bought the "Taylor" necklace by Jeanine Payer, came in to show me how it looked on a shorter cord and I thought it looked so unique against the texture of her Issey Miyake dress.
A pattern on a dress worn by a young girl caught my eye. It's all about dresses this summer.
textures and patterns - the necklace on the right is designed by an artist in Montana using Japanese paper. I am going to send her this photograph worn by a customer at Cursive.
By day's end, a group of women, dressed in some colorful summer dresses, came in maybe to escape the rain. I noticed that one of them was wearing a veil covered in various objects that had been attached to the veil. The woman is getting married and all of the objects had been made and sent by friends and family. This was to good to pass up.
I had never seen anything like this before and loved the idea! I've been to many a bridal shower and have created a bouquet, to be carried by the bride at her dress rehearsal, using ribbons that had been wrapped around gifts at the bridal shower.
