Aaaahh…Spring! The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, the sun is shining……oh wait, that’s the scenario in our heads. This is Seattle and it’s raining and the wind is howling! Sounds like a good day to snuggle in and read what’s new in Curtsyland!
We’ve always been big fans of Alice in Wonderland and the new Tim Burton movie seems to have reved up everyone’s interest in a place where rabbits talk, pigs are used as footstools and there’s a Mad sort of Man in a purple hat! Tarina Tarantino’s new Acid Alice collection celebrates the celebration of the madness! We love the Baroque Lucite Framed Ring that can serve as your reminder to take nothing too seriously.
Wedding Season is starting and Curtsy Bella has the perfect shower gift. Bella Barudan, our spiffy new embroidery machine is helping us offer truly personalized gifts for the new bride. A soft terry robe customized with her new married name, or one that simply says “The Bride” on the back and her first name on the front is something that she will treasure as a reminder of this special time in her life.
This is a busy year for the Curtsy Girls. Curtsy Mama is traveling to Africa with her best pal this summer and Danielle and the Captain are tying the knot is August. It’s so easy to let the days slip by in a mindless hurry. The Simple Abundance book is filled with 366 short essays that serve as a reminder to take the time to slow down and enjoy the gifts of each day. It is a truly wonderful gift to give to someone special or yourself.
Danielle is constantly scouring antique and second hand stores for unique pieces to use in her displays. Several times she has come across miniature lady head vases, but they have always been expensive. When we stumbled upon these at the Atlanta Gift Show, brand new and soooo pretty, we did the happy dance! There are 3 different styles and they are just the right size to hold mini bouquets for your Easter table, or your makeup brushes on your vanity , or pencils on your desk…..the list goes on and on.
That’s it for now!
