22 In Misc


Winding down from a very busy week.  I had mentioned earlier, Sam from StyleSwoon is helping me update my home–what I didn't mention was that a local magazine will be covering the renovation process.  We thought the shoot was in May, but the shoot date was moved up to Tuesday!  Sam and I have been up until the wee hours killing a bottle of wine and pulling everything together–well, it's mostly Sam.  I can't wait to show you all the finished product.  

Once again our site is open.  I apologize for the disastrous first launch–we had a lot of bugs to work out.  I'm feeling pretty confident that it's ready now.  Karen has been busy adding a lot of new things–go have a look here….Please let us know via e-mail if you have any problems.  


Karen picked up our first batch of beetles–she is busy polishing each one, and making the belts.  We plan on shipping when I return from Tokyo May 6th.  I think they look incredible.  One definitely has my name on it!

    The revamped site looks incredible! I’ll have a more thorough look around when I get a few moments.
    Still have my eye on a beetle belt…must decide which design.

    I hope you can help me. I have recently purchased the dove, dog and frog Christopher Ross buckles. I love them and was lucky to find them in different places. Unfortunately, they did not come with belt straps and I am trying to figure out how the buckles would fasten onto the strap. The ones I have with snap closures do not fit these buckles. Thanks in advance.
