Artwork Dilemma

While away a few weeks ago, my 5 year old called to report that he accidentally "cracked" a picture when he was playing frisbee in the living room. I tried to let it go, as I had escaped for 2 days to spend time with an old friend...by myself. Surely it couldn't be that bad...and had he really said he was playing frisbee in the living room? Upon my return, this is what I found:

I wasn't in love with the piece above the mantel, but at least we had something there! (Yes, those are Nutcrackers & a Santa photo...finally took them down this week.)

If you have any suggestions for pieces, feel free to leave a comment. I'm not scared to try something myself, I just need a little direction...


Monogrammed Sweaters - Kids Only, sorry!

Our trunk show guests have been emailing in "special requests" to order these fabulous Monogrammed Roll Neck Sweaters this winter. We took them to all our Fall shows, but weren't sure how to fit them in online...we decided what the heck, our customers love 'em, we'll add them! So, just in time for Easter and Springtime fun, get your little peanut one of these adorable personalized sweaters! We love them in snowy Colorado with a turtleneck or sunny Sea Island with a pair of madras shorts!
Available in 6/12 month - 5/6T
Shipping is $15 for 1 or 10 sweaters, order with a friend!


Spring = Shoshanna

What's a girl to do while recovering from a broken tailbone? Online shopping, of course! I'm a little annoyed with ice & winter these days, since they are the guilty party of the injury. However, I know Spring is just around the corner and I can't wait! Propped up in bed with the MacBook by my side, I've done quite a bit of damage (this is a test to see if the hubby reads my blog). My newest addiction is Shoshanna's 2010 Summer Collection. You can find them at fab stores all over...mine will be delivered.

Don't forget to sign up for the February Giveaway by February 14th!


Superbowl Party Time

As soon as we knew who would be battling our Colts (born and raised in Indy), we created these plates for die hard fans:
Leading up to Superbowl weekend, we were chatting with some friends hosting a suite for the weekend. They asked for some "team neutral" designs. Checkout out what some of the nation's best NFL players received from La Plates:
