I recently visited Santa Barbara for a long overdue girls weekend. The direct flight from Denver, CO into Santa Barbara, CA was easy-breezy. We talked, shopped, had some pool time & ate at amazing restaurants.  I took my first adventure on an E-Bike on our way to Montecito Country Mart. It was so fun & now I totally want one! Here are some of my hi-lights below.   The next stop was dinner at the El Encanto at

We're shouting out some of Christy's personal favorites this season. Starting off with one of CLP's favorite symbols, the Thunderbird. The Thunderbird is a symbol from Native American mythology representing protection, power and strength. Our thunderbird is inscribed with "Sacred Bearer of Happiness Unlimited" on the back.   Our second favorite has to be these handmade baskets from Rwanda.

She reached out on social and then followed up with some of my favorite clients, many who have become my dearest friends. She asked them to tell her about their favorite pieces, my shop, and well, about me. The results have been enough to make

We feel lucky to do what we love every day, and recognize we are part of a larger community and world. Supporting organizations here in our own community or who are doing work on the national level that we find important, will always be at the core of what we do. Sometimes we run givebacks for a period of time (like when the proceeds from your purchases last holiday season helped us give $5000 to

We always have a sense of what pieces are doing best in the line, but it's fun to see the results in black and white at year-end. Last year's roster of bestsellers is a well-rounded group -- everyday basics, a little sweetness, a little rock 'n roll. Which one is your favorite? See them all here.

Antsy. As in, ants in my pants. For some new scenery. To get on a plane again! Are you feeling me? It goes without saying it’s been Groundhog Day for most of us for the better part of a year now. Z and I have always traveled together. We joke to our friends and family with kids that it is the best benefit to not having those responsibilities –  to be able to just

I’ve never been a political person. I was 35 the first time I voted. I have a lot of friends who are really engaged in what is going on in politics. Recently it has occurred to me to ask a couple of them how politics, the news, issues of the day, were a part of their childhood experience, to try to determine how my reality was so different.
