Designer's Guild

I've just been on the Designer's Guild website, drooling once again over their wallpapers, fabrics and inspiration rooms. Someday I will have a super cool Designer's Guild room...someday. Until then, I will happily drool over the website, as well as the Tricia Guild book Pattern, which I got for my birthday last year and promptly got it for our store, so everyone can own it! Anyway, go drool over the website and if you want a little designer's guild to keep with you, come in and get the book!

Cath Kidston--Just arrived!

A while ago I posted about my love of British textile and home furnishings designer Cath Kidston. Well, my love has not waned and I'm excited to say that we have some of Cath's stuff here at bon bon! She has designed a dream home journal and a recipe organizer that are perfect in so many ways. The dream home journal features eight fill-in sections easily adapted to each room of the house, and durable pockets to store swatches and clippings. Each section contains space to dream up the perfect room, create project and shopping lists, floor plans, and keep track of measurements. It makes you want to redecorate, just so you can use this book.

Her recipe organizer is neatly organized course-by-course, with space to write cherished recipes, and store magazine clippings and Internet printouts. Featuring ample pockets for extra storage, as well as handy tear-out shopping lists, and a variety of helpful cooking charts. Both of these feature folders and pages with her amazing designs on it.

We also have her very handy mending kit, which includes everything necessary to accomplish basic household-mending projects, from replacing buttons to hemming pants. Inside the lovely padded sewing organizer is a 32-page fully illustrated, step-by-step sewing instruction booklet covering all the sewing basics, plus a complete sewing kit.
Includes: - Seam-ripper- Hem measurer- Tape measure- Pinwheel with 40 pins- Scissors- Built-in pincushion- Needles (2)- 10 colors of thread- Needle threader- Zippered storage pouch for buttons, etc
So come in and get an eyeful of Cath. Also, don't forget that our January sale runs through the 12th. Shoes 40% off, Rosanna dishware 30% off, and Christmas 50% off!

I don't know if it's because I've been ordering and planning for bon bon's Spring/Summer merch or if it' s the 60 degree weather that we have recently had but I am so ready for Spring! So, I happen to be on vogue.co.uk looking at the 2008 Spring collections and what did I see but the wonder of John Galliano. Now, he's always been a favorite of mine, but for some reason this season is just total cotton candy perfection! I'm going to put some favorite pictures up, but you have to go look at the whole collection, and there is a choice to look at backstage photos, which you should check out because they have some great close-ups of his hair and makeup, which were also amazing. Anyway, this collection has awakened a need in me to Sew, so I have bought lots of fabric and have lots of projects brewing! Enjoy!
