Preppy Princess has the most amazing items including KJP headbands as well as tons of Lilly! Clearly, I wasn't spending enough time in the Preppy Princess shop. I don't want to post images here of Preppy Princess items as I don't have permission. But, just click on the Shopaholic in Alabama link above and you can go from there. Have fun!

Home Again, Home Again

We're back from our Yellowstone/Grand Teton vacation. I'm excited to post a few photos. Unfortunately, I left my laptop charger in a Hilton somewhere in Wyoming. My laptop has all of the photos on it and I'm not able to access them without the charger (laptop's dead). No biggie though, the charger should arrive with tomorrow's mail. In the mean time, I'll share this one photo of a bear that we saw.  I borrowed it from  my sister who joined us with her family.  Seriously, if you haven't been to Yellowstone, this is the kind of wildlife that's seen regularly. It's amazing and somewhat strange, but I'll get into that later.

The shops are open again (see links in the right hand column). During this quiet spell, I'm having fun making these new little flowers that look like mums- with Lilly fabric of course.  I'll post photos of these as well and already have a giveaway in the works. You'll be the first to get the details!

Hope everyone is having the best July ever. Summer will soon be a memory. Have you seen Lilly's Fall line?? Tell me what you think.

Yellowstone Bound

We are going on vacation to Yellowstone National Park for two to three weeks. Why "two to three weeks"? It's not poor planning, we're just not sure that we won't be ready to come home after two weeks. Our extremely flexible house-sitter is more than accomodating so, we'll just see how we feel.

What does this mean for my shops: Lotus and Lilly, Looking 4 Lilly and The Vintage Lilly? They will go on vacation too. I'll place them in vacation mode tomorrow at 10am PST. We don't leave until next Monday, but I won't be able to take anymore orders after tomorrow.

There was an article in our local paper (The Mountain Democrat) yesterday about Lotus and Lilly. I'm dying to post a link, but you need a subscription to view their articles...very frustrating. I'm working on it though and might resort to a scan option. It's just to colorful to not post. Plus, the reporter went into the history of Lilly Pulitzer fabric, which was just too cool. Again, I'll work on it over the next couple days.

Enjoy your holiday weekend and be safe!
