Doing the happy dance...

What a wonderful War Eagle weekend this is! The weather couldn't be better, town is packed, and it's so good to see old friends and make new ones. The trees are slowly starting to turn to their beautiful fall colors -- a freeze predicted for later this week will probably speed the process. Fall in the Ozarks is truly magnificent, and everyone in town seems to be under its spell. If you're thinking about visiting Eureka Springs, now is definitely the time!

Fall arrives in Eureka Springs...

The long hot spell has been broken at last, and a chill is in the air. Time to start getting out a jacket or two...time to gather kindling for the fireplace...time to start thinking about holiday decor and gift ideas.

New French milk soaps (left) and English soaps (in basket) with the most gorgeous scents.

French trays, new fleur de lys wall art, new signs.

Burlap pillows with an array of phrases and sayings.

Beautiful iridescent fish ornaments.

The cutest little dog ornaments, crowned and glittered.


Beautiful new cameo necklace and Stella & Joan purse, perfect for the holidays.

Calling all anglophiles...

Yes, if you're an unabashed anglophile like me, you'll love this framed Union Jack print and Union Jack pillows. Hail Britannia!



The large pillows are a whopping 30" wide ($128); the smaller ones are 19" wide ($45.) And the print is a mere $145.

New stuff!

Well, it looks like it's been months and months since I last posted. Life just got in the way, I guess. However, we have tons of new merchandise in the store, so here's a sampling.



These are our new Stella & Joan bags, all with beautiful linings and many handy pockets, made from vintage and new fabrics with vintage pins and/or buttons. They are a "must see."

New additions to our wine section. A French "riddling rack" for your wine bottles and hors d'oeuvres plates that match our wine coasters.




Love these new chandeliers! Square, round or mini, they all have such style.




And a bunch of new lamps. (Love this silver teapot lamp with the boho shade!)


I looked forever before I finally found these battery operated tapers. They even have a waxy finish. You can burn them all evening with no fear of fire or flame. Perfect for the holidays.


Beautiful newsprint and graphic print paper lanterns.


Now what family can resist this melamine dinnerware with a French flair? Great style that is....unbreakable!




Words to live by! These message signs are going fast...




Natural pillows, in burlap and linen, with appliques of flowers....or crosses....or the Union Jack.

Or if you're in the mood for a riot of color, fabulous boho pillows in round, rectangular or bolster.


Candles, pillows, plaques and small purses with vintage Arkansas prints.



Just a few of our new aprons (the last two have terry cloth toweling as skirts, because who doesn't wipe their hands on their apron?)



And finally, we now carry a line of Cottage Caboodle shower gel, body butter, body lotion and hand sanitizer. The scents are sensational: green tea and apricot chamomile.

This is just a small peak at what's in store right now. Stop by and take a look!

Kitty collars in two sizes



And more signs are on their way. Stop in and check them out!
