Our fabric was featured in the Kansas City Star summer spectacular last Sunday! Thanks KC Star and the very lovely Stacy Downs!
You’re invited to a Summer Spectacular (in your own backyard)
By STACY DOWNS and JOCELYN JACOBSON
The Kansas City Star
Chillaxin’ is our new favorite verb. That’s because we’re definitely ready for the sweet slowdown of summer.
House + Home is giving you the inside scoop of ice cream on savoring the season at home, including cheap thrills, new goods and splashes of advice. No plane ticket necessary because there’s fun to be had from the front porch to the backyard and all the spaces in between.
Yes, we have your (sunscreened) back. So plop into your favorite rocking chair, plunge into this guide and chillax all summer long.

Some of you may have already gotten this invite through the mail or email, but for everyone else..join us!
As you can see, we are having an official welcoming party for our fabric department on June 6th! We will have lots of new fabric and patterns for you sewers out there. For all of you non-sewers, don't worry we haven't forgotten you-- new jewelry, bags, and a myriad of other items await you!
For even more fabric-y fun stop by from after 12 to talk to the girls from DirtyLaundry and Sodapop about a custom apron or handbag!

Now I have to redo the inside of the store. I have ideas I want to do, but it is so gray and gloomy it is hard for me to bring up the energy. But it will be done!

Hey! There is my new dress I made out of our Paris fabric! I used a vintage pattern and I like it so much, you can expect to see me in the same style, different fabrics all summer!

So, can I be a nag and ask you to do something for me? Only if you want to though! Will you pretty please go to the KC Magazine voting and vote for us for Best Local Boutique? You can go here to register to vote and then they send you the link and you write in your fav's. It's kind of fun actually. Anyway, Please and thanks!
So, guess what is shipping out today and winging it's way to our store? The brand-spanking-new Kansas City Eat. Shop Guide! And guess who is in it? Us! Hooray! When I ordered our books yesterday (along with Paris, London, Chicago, Denver, New Orleans & some other city I can't remember at the moment) she said she really liked our spread. Our Spread--what does that mean? A wee blurb? More than a wee blurb? Pictures? An entire chapter devoted to us? (Alright, maybe that is hoping for too much!) I don't know, but I can't wait to see!!
