One of the wonders from down under... I love everything in her collections. Playful, classic, quirky, colorful, pretty - Karen Walker manages to accomplish these things brilliantly - from the designs, fabrics and construction to the final presentation. ( mwah! ) And can you imagine designing two seasons for each season? The northern hemisphere and southern hemisphere?

Not sure where I've been, but I just heard this the other day on the radio - seems like the perfect song for Valentine's Day. (...and it makes me wish I could play the guitar.)

With all of the cold weather, snow, rain, and wind - Spring cannot come soon enough. These pretty, pretty underpinnings aren't necessarily meant for Spring, but they conjure up the light, playful spirit that I associate with the season.
Until then, I will wish for these lovely, cozy pieces from Toast.

Is there something in the shop that you've been eyeing, but maybe the price wasn't quite right? Starting today, Good Grace is having a progessive sales event. The more you buy, the more you save. :)
Purchase one item, receive 10% off that item.*
Purchase two items, receive 20% off each of those items.*
Purchase three or more items, receive 30% off all of the chosen items.*
*Sale does not apply to shipping charges. A revised PayPal invoice can be requested, or a refund can be issued via PayPal.
What is your favorite item? I'm telling you, if those turquoise suede boots were my size, they would not be in the shop. And I'm loving the mocha squiggle blouse and the 1940's funnel neck coat... oh yes, and that faux shearling Men's lumberjack coat ...

Where to begin? Several months ago, I was introduced to the beautiful pieces created by Lisa Leonard over on a couple of my favorite blogs (Joanna's and Melisa's). Her family crest pieces really had me all aflutter ... although I could seriously take home nearly everything in her online shop. Anywhooo, a few months ago, she purchased an item from my shop. (wow!) Unfortunately, as I was preparing the item for shipment, I noticed a problem with a button - and for the life of me, could not find a replacement for it. I was stumbling all over myself trying to make it right - eventually deciding to issue a full credit -- then mailed her item to her, along with a note explaining my unfortunate oversight. (oy vey!) A few weeks passed when an unexpected little package arrived in my mailbox - showing a return address belonging to Lisa Leonard. Oh my... the box was far too small to contain her item (if she was upset with me and returning it). What could it possible be?
Oh. My. Gosh.
So incredibly lovely! I was completely stunned. Who would have imagined? So completely kind, gracious and generous.... and totally unexpected. The epitome of "paying it forward", in a sense. (And by the way, I get compliments on it every single time I wear it. I love it!)
In addition, one of the things that really drew me to Lisa's work even more, was her blog! It is a visual treat for the eyes and fantastically inspiring on SO many levels. She is one amazing woman - and a wonderful mom.
