Style + Function = Perfection!


I was thinking about my jewelry box just this morning. When my husband purchased it for me more than sixteen years ago, I remember thinking, "How will I ever fill this thing up?" I'm not sure when it happened, but it did get filled up. Besides my jewelry, it's filled with a few of my mother's pieces, some of my daughter's pieces, even my husband's army marksmanship medal.

So this morning, as I was getting out some of my snazzy Willow House jewelry to wear, I thought there must be a better way.

{Cue violins}

Then, over on Facebook, I saw this lovely sneak preview of a page from our upcoming Fall 2012 Style for Home catalog -- what a great idea! I mean, my Sara Blaine pieces are works of art, painstakingly handcrafted into true heirloom quality designer jewelry. And I can't wear it all, all the time. But my bedroom wall could!

Gotta love it when style and function -- beauty and organization -- play so nicely together. (See more examples of this here, here, and  here.)

Willow House July Sale! (+ Retired Products Alert)

Wow, I thought the June sales were great, but wait until you see what I have for you this month!

First of all, say hello to even more deals on Style for Home (note: this sale ends Monday, July 23, 2012 -- click the photo to see larger flyer).



Second, we'll be introducing a new catalog on July 24 (sneak peek at cover over in my sidebar)! In order to make room for some new products -- including more made-in-America decor -- we have to say good-bye to a few good friends (*sniff*). Here are a few of retiring items -- contact me for a complete list.




Third, our jewelry sale has been extended through July!




And lastly -- because all of these deals are making me just a bit giddy -- I'm offering FREE SHIPPING on any order with products totaling $50 or more through the end of July. Here's how it works:
  • Shop at my online store
  • Select Suzanne Jackson as your host (I'll be your consultant, as well)
  • Place your order
  • I'll send you a rebate check for your shipping amount once the order is processed
P.S. If you're loving the products you see here, you might want to consider your own Willow House business. You can learn a little more here, then contact me for more info.

Looking to Independence Day fun


It's hot, hot, hot -- the perfect time to enjoy some cool inspiration on Pinterest! Here are some of the holiday-inspired pins I've been liking.

How about some salute-worthy bling from one of my favorite blogs, Plate and Pattern?



And you gotta love the patriotic subway art (free printable!).


And here's a great alternative to burgers and dogs:


Loads of free printables for the Fourth...

Don't forget to dress up your door!





But my absolute favorite has to be Lisa's patriotic painted screens (including the Texas flag didn't hurt, either!).




However you choose to celebrate, I hope you have a happy 4th of July!

Willow House decor -- sneak peek!


Isn't this just lovely? This tidbit is one of six pieces in our new American-made Willow House Artisan Pottery Collection. Don't you just love the rich intricacy?  And it blends beautifully with our Riverstone Collection.

Our first step to reinvent d├ęcor starts with our new artisan pottery collection... You’ve probably heard rumors and they are true — it’s beyond spectacular and it’s made in America. The rich glazes, the weight, the uniqueness of these handmade works of art are simply amazing... We’re excited about these first six artisan pottery pieces, and we’re continuing to work on and invest in new American-made products that will continue this trend... (Bill Shaw, president, Willow House)

I'm beyond excited about Willow House bringing more American-made products into our Style for Home line. These will still be unique products, envisioned by our own design team and created with the utmost care and quality materials.

This new collection will be featured in our Fall 2012 Catalog, which you can see here in late July.

Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo, y'all! My family will take any excuse to eat Mexican food -- heck, we even celebrated Quatro de Mayo last night. But tonight, we'll be enjoying homemade pico de gallo and guacomole with freshly grilled chicken fajitas. Because it's a tradition. (If I'd had a more normal week, I would've remembered to have pinto beans simmering, too.) 


Thought you'd enjoy just one of the many faces of our Gramercy Beverage Server:




Thanks to Jill Hevey Licastri for styling and to the Willow House home office team for sharing this photo on their Facebook page. And for some great beverage ideas, check out my e-newsletter here.

The Gramercy Beverage Server set can be purchased from my online Willow House store -- or schedule a virtual party in May and get it for as little as $5!

Shopping for Shelly


Some of you may remember an online Willow House benefit I hosted for my sister-in-law, Michele, last May. Michele's condition has progressed to pre-leukemia, and she now requires a bone marrow transplant (my husband is blessed to be able to donate marrow through peripheral blood stem cells).You can read about Michele and her situation on my Princapecos blog.

In light of this, I'm hosting another online Willow House benefit to help Michele and her husband, Tim, meet the expenses involved.

To participate in this fundraiser, simply visit either of my online Willow House stores, Style for Home or Jewelry by Sara Blaine, place an order using Michele Fetz as your host, and I'll donate my entire commission from your order directly to Michele. Style for Home orders over $39.96 are still eligible for a customer special, and even e-outlet orders count! If you need help or prefer to order by phone, let me know.

I'd love for you to share this opportunity with your family and friends, too. If you have several folks who'd like to participate, I'll even set you up as host and let you earn host rewards. Contact me for details.

If you prefer not to shop but would still like to donate, let me know and I'll help you take care of that, too.

Above all, we would appreciate your prayers through this long process. There are scores of people involved in making this happen, from Michele's family to the Fisher House folks to the teams of professionals at NIH. But ultimately, we know that all of this rests in the Lord's hands.

Adorn a Door -- and Yourself -- for Spring


It's spring here in Georgia. It feels a bit like summer, but the high pollen count reminds me that it is actually spring (ah-choo!). Spring is actually my favorite time of year, perhaps because it was the one season that seemed unique in my Arizona upbringing.

A door bucket is a great way to provide a springtime welcome for your friends and family! One of my favorite door buckets is the Willow House Flower Market Door Bucket. This versatile bucket has sleek lines, a subtle but lovely design on the front, and a distinctive yet neutral moss bronze finish. I'm a bit lazy with mine, using faux greens all year long and just adding in a bit of seasonal color as needed.

On the other hand, Sarah over at Thrifty Decor Chick has done a fabulous job of bringing spring to her door by using cuttings from her own yard in her own Flower Market Door Bucket. I love the look -- and the fact that she provides a great step-by-step tutorial to help you get a similar look! Be sure to hop over to her blog to get all the details (and browse around, as I know you'll love her great ideas)! I just noticed that Sarah has paired her door bucket with the Must Have Door Hanger -- you can get the pair for a special price!)



But the front door is not the only thing needing adorning this spring -- I love pulling out my lighter, brighter spring clothes! And what better way to adorn your wardrobe than with fresh spring jewelry? I mean, spring... bling... they must rhyme for a reason!

 I'm loving the sneak peaks of the new lines for Willow House Jewelry by Sara Blaine; it's fresh without being here-today-gone-tomorrow trendy. See for yourself...

Lovely Layla necklace and bracelet:



Fresh addition to the Bali Scroll collection:


These new products will be available April 1 at my online Willow House jewelry store! The Flower Market Door Bucket is available in my Style for Home online store now -- purchase the door bucket or the bucket/hanger set and you'll qualify for our pick-your-own customer special!
