Special Moments

I couldn't let such a joyous occasion pass without a quick post about yesterday's Royal Wedding. As I did nearly 30 years ago for Charles and Diana's wedding, I woke at 5 am to witness the marriage of their son Prince William to Catherine Middleton. It was a joyous occasion, a beautiful wedding, and a truly global experience.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

With such fanfare surrounding the event, it was nice to see the couple share a few of their own special moments. My favourite part of the ceremony came as Catherine turned to William with a smile and he responded with a slightly raised eyebrow and a smirk, as the Right Reverend Richard Chartres spoke: "You have both made your decision today...I will..."

Congratulations to the newlyweds!!

Apres LA

The week following a buying trip is always chaotic at the office, so forgive me for such a prolonged absence from the blog. Although I've been back for several days, the suitcase sat in the kitchen until just a few hours ago, and I finally feel like I'm getting my groove back.

Tonight I also found the time to put together a DIY project for the store. I created an accessory display by wrapping inexpensive fabric ($3) around a square cork board ($10). Then I hung necklaces from colourful straight pins ($1).

Voila! Instant display!!

And they're all so pretty!!
