Favorite quote of the year!

We end the year with our favorite of posts from our weekly quotes. It reminds us to be grateful each day for all of the things we have and to shift focus away from the things we do not.

As the year draws to a close we are thankful for so many things- including the opportunity to have served you in Columbus for 15 Holiday seasons! A milestone indeed and we wish each of you a healthy and inspired New Year!

Busy! Crazy! Retail Madness! Yes- that describes our last two weeks and hence the lack of posts. To offer a bit of last minute inspiration we borrow from our friends at Style Me Pretty and their beautiful inspired gift wrap post.

On Paper Wins the Short North Window Contest

How fun! We were awarded Best in Show for Short North Holiday Window Contest!

Michelle created beautiful trees made out of, you guess it, paper! Her hard work paid of and the $500 prize sure comes in handy for Santa's elves!

We're in great company and you can see more photos of the other amazing shop windows HERE and HERE...

Thanks to the biz association, judges and all of our neighbors for making this such a festive month!


Just received an order of cards packaged in that rumpled oh so can't wait to open it sort of way. The opposite of polished and Christmas-y but we love the vintage feel of gifts wrapped in our basic Kraft wrap.

Wouldn't tons of these look great under a tree!?


Holiday Windows

Cut curl pin twirl - rock paper scissors - paper cut !

Our holiday windows are in and if we do say so ourselves- luv-ly! Michelle did an amazing job creating paper trees for our holiday window scape. See more photos in our Facebook album here...


New Luv: Niven Morgan

We're luvin' Niven Morgan- and the Jean Baptiste 1717 Collection. Soap, hand lotion and an aromatic candle are perfectly packaged and couldn't be more suited to our shop. {note: sealing wax loveliness}

Here's what the creator says about this collection:

"A young but sophisticated fragrance, Jean Baptiste 1717 evokes the seductive soul of New Orleans: oak lined boulevards, jasmined air, distant song, sweet times, love lost and found. The scent: Water hyacinth, jasmine and tuberose floating through a sensual aura: wild rose and princess lily with subtle traces of caramel and creamy vanilla, and base notes of rich woods and warm patchouli.

Niven Morgan’s Jean Baptiste 1717 celebrates New Orleans past and present and its founding father, Jean Baptiste le Moyne de Bienville, the aristocrat who established the city in 1717 as the capital of French Louisiana. His original settlement survives to this day as the Vieux CarrĂ©, or French Quarter."

Lather up your shopping list and add this as a go to gift this holiday season!
